Sleep disorders are medical disorders of the sleep patterns for a person or animal. It is common but not easily diagnosed as a single condition. For example, Insomnia, a kind of sleep disorders, is not a disease, as there is no single definition of it that can apply to all the conditions reported by people. Some sleep disorders are severe enough to interfere with normal physical, mental, social and emotional functions.
From the National Sleep Foundation’s sleep study, children, between 5 to 10 years old, should sleep 10 to 11 hours per day, teenagers should sleep 8 to 9 hours/day and adults are supposed to sleep at least 7 to 9 hours.
However, according to recent surveys, nearly 30% of adults have sleep disorders, with an average sleep time of less than 6 hours per night, and 70% of teenagers have an average sleep time of less than 8 hours. Compared with 20 years ago, infants and toddlers wake up much more every night and also sleep much less.
Various aspects are at play in a person’s sleep problem. Sleeplessness itself varies dramatically from person to person with some people struggling to fall asleep and others struggling to stay asleep, alongside physiological urges like needing to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night or suffering with pain.
The following are the types of sleep disorders:
- Dyssomnias (characterized by either Hypersomnia or Insomnia)
- Circadian rhythm sleep disorders (Delayed sleep phase disorder, Advanced sleep phase disorder, Non-24-hour sleep-wake disorder)
- Parasomnias (Bedwetting, Bruxism, Catathrenia, Exploding Head Syndrome, Sleep terror, REM sleep behavior disorder, Sleep walking, Sleep talking, Sleep sex)
- Medical or psychiatric conditions that may produce sleep disorders (DiGeorge Syndrome, Alcoholism, Mood disorder, Depression, Anxiety disorder, Panic, Psychosis)
- Sleeping sickness
Causes for Sleep Disorders
People who are often exposed to Electromagnetic Field pollution are very common to suffer from Sleeping disorders. It can also happen to those who try their best to not have sleep problems by making a proper sleep schedule or sleep clock and keeping their lights off while in bed.
Sleep studies show that anxiety and sleeping disorders are well connected. Stress leads to unhealthy melatonin sleep and then results in restless sleep. The sleep clock then will go so far behind, which is impossible to recover. Sleep diseases begin to manifest.
Circadian rhythm disorders are also related to sleep disorders. People typically sleep at night, which are driven by circadian rhythm – an internal “clock”. This clock is a small part of the brain that controls your sleepiness and alertness. Abnormalities associated with this clock are called circadian rhythm disorders. It can cause jet lag, adjustments to shift work, delayed sleep phase syndrome and advanced sleep phase syndrome.
Doctors tend to prescribe drugs to provide relief from sleep disorders, which results in some problems such as addiction, withdrawal symptoms and many other side-effects. Therefore, it’s important to find out low-risk methods to help with sleeping problems. PEMF Therapy is one of the choices.
How does PEMF therapy work on Sleep Disorders?
Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy improves sleeping disorders using the process of Brainwave entrainment. When presented with an external resonating stimulus around the brain, resonant molecules or electrical activity start to react to the stimulation frequency by establishing a pattern of mutual resonance. This is called frequency following or entrainment. PEMF therapy can tune the frequency of the brain cells and transform it into a pattern that enhances sleep by using this principle of basic physics.
Studies of brainwave electrical activity have found 2 different stages of sleep, rapid eye movement (REM) and non-rapid eye movement (NREM). NREM sleep accounts for almost 80% of total sleep time in the adult. The early phase of NREM sleep is the deepest sleep period, which usually occurs in early night. And the brainwave patterns during this time are in lower frequencies. PEMF therapy can keep the brain in this optimal state.
The Pineal gland releases a large amount of the hormone “melatonin” in darkness, which also enhances the sleep quality. Many human studies show an increase in melatonin production with exposure to PEMFs. This also proves that PEMF therapy actually works to improve and induce sleep quality.
PEMF therapy also has positive effects on calming the brain and regulating circadian rhythms. And studies show that circadian rhythms have an important role in controlling sleep patterns and cycles. According to a research done in Germany in the 1960s through the 1970s, they found that weak square wave 10 Hz electromagnetic fields reversed the effects of the disturbed circadian rhythms.
In a four-week double-blind, placebo-controlled study, PEMF therapy was tested for Insomnia. A hundred people with Insomnia were randomly assigned to either active treatment or placebo. The PEMF therapy helped about 90% of people in the active treatment group, compared to only about 50% in the placebo group. This study showed that most basic types of sleep problems can be substantially helped with the use of PEMF therapies.
What makes Big Magic special for improving Sleep Disorders?
Big Magic is an absolutely safe PEMF device, with a special PEMF Mat to apply the healing magnetic pulses.
The frequency of Big Magic exactly copies the natural healing frequency of the earth, which is called the Schumann resonance. This is a frequency which humans have evolved with, and which your body needs to maintain health. It can stimulate healthy brain activity and synchronize the brainwaves within the required range for normal deep sleep.
Big Magic also has been optimized for long treatments. Most existing PEMF units in the market only apply a single, unidirectional pulse which is not good for health in the long-time treatment. Unlike these devices, Big Magic reverses the signal every 10 minutes to make your body overall charge neutral. This means your body maintains equilibrium, and doesn’t become magnetically charged. The waveform of Big Magic is sharper than almost any other PEMF unit as well. This sharpness allows the signal to induce a stronger signal within cells. It makes Big Magic more effective for treating sleep disorders.
In addition, the PEMF mat of Big Magic is designed to match your requirement of overnight treatment perfectly. It is flexible and practical, you can put it under your pillow inside the pillowcase to do an overnight treatment for sleep disorders.
One of our Big Magic users said: “Big Magic by MiraMate has already proved magical for me! I relaxed as soon as I lay on it, fell asleep almost immediately, had a great night’s sleep, and woke up the next morning feeling incredibly energized.”
If you have sleep disorders and don’t want to get side effects from drugs, our magical PEMF device Big Magic will be one of the best choices for you.
