From Bath to LaLaLand

From Bath to LaLaLand

With so many commercials on television, internet and social media for sleep aids, you have to wonder how many of those people who struggle with sleep are driving next to you, sitting next to you on the train or even filling your prescriptions?

Insomnia is a condition that makes it hard to fall asleep or to stay asleep. What can be frustrating for those who suffer from the inability to sleep is what could be causing it. Moreover, what can be done to increase your restful sleep?

Some statistics to ponder about sleep:

  • 1 in 5 people struggle to sleep every single night
  • Half of US adults experience insomnia once a month or more
  • 1 in 4 18-24 year olds experience insomnia nightly, the highest rate of any age group
  • Stress, anxiety, and depression are among the most common causes of insomnia

If you suffer from insomnia and you have consulted a physician, you may want to consider trying different alternative approaches like meditation, yoga, aromatherapy.

Something that our massage therapists recommend to clients after a massage, is to go home and take a bath with some bath salts.

Think about how a baby sleeps after they are bathed and swaddled. It calms and soothes, lulling them to Lalaland. Take yourself back to those days of slumber with some of these products.

Magnesium Bath Flakes

Magnesium bath flakes are made from magnesium chloride while epsom salts are magnesium sulfate. Although both contain a form of magnesium, magnesium chloride is much better suited for topical application.

Magnesium chloride is the best choice because of its clinical and pharmacological effects, and its lower tissue toxicity as compared to magnesium sulfate. Magnesium chloride is more easily assimilated, and therefore more bioavailable or easily-absorbed and utilized by the body. Whereas magnesium sulfate is not as easily absorbed and utilized in the body.

You can add essential oils, as they come unscented, and it’s safe for children and the elderly.

Magnesium chloride helps you sleep by alerting the receptors in your brain that it is time to wind down and go to sleep.

Sleep problems can sometimes be linked to a magnesium deficiency. Meanwhile, studied indicate that magnesium can help relieve insomnia, such as sleep efficiency, sleep time and sleep onset latency.

By increasing levels of magnesium with the use of a topical magnesium like Ancient Minerals Magnesium Bath Flakes, you just may be able to get a better night’s sleep.
