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.
Does PEMF Therapy work on Sleep Disorders?
PEMF therapy 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.
Stresses, whether physiologic or emotional, can affect circadian rhythms. 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.
PEMF in low intensity may enhance the effects of sleep medications and psychotropic drugs. This may result in a hangover-like effect in the morning. If this should happen, then the dosing of the medications may be able to be decreased, under appropriate supervision.
Mini Magic for Sleep Disorders
Mini Magic is a portable PEMF device designed to treat sleep disorders.
The pulses of Mini Magic vary in pattern, intensity, and timing, maximizing their effect on your body’s cells. This is a great improvement from other PEMF devices.
You can place the coils under the pillowcase, which is especially helpful for people falling asleep better, and when running all night, they keep people asleep better. Please make sure the coils have the smooth side touching your body.
One of our Mini Magic users said: “What works for me to make me sleep is to place the coils on each side of my spine above the hips and place it there when I can’t go to sleep. I run it on the low setting while I try to sleep. So far it has never failed me.”
