According to the latest figures from cbs, 20% of the Dutch population suffers from sleep problems
- difficulty falling asleep often has to do with worrying and grinding
- your sleep consists of a sleep cycle, from sleep stage 1-2-3-4-3-2-1 to REM and lasts about ninety to one hundred minutes.
- normally everyone has 4-5 sleep cycles per night
- when you wake up tired, it often means that your sleep cycles are disrupted
- sleep medication often affects the quality of REM sleep
- dreams help to process the emotions of the day
- recurring dreams often contain a message
- High Sensitized Individuals often feel that strange energies come to visit
- HSP children take much more truth and see – feel – hear “visit” in their room go here as a parent in with it because. They actually observe this, this is often the reason they are afraid in their bedroom. This visit doesn’t have to be negative.
- the amount of daylight to which your eyes are exposed are also decisive for the production of melatonin
- many melatonin users wake up at night around 3 – 4 hours and can no longer fall asleep
- the body (the pineal gland) converts serotonin into melatonin, when rotating, tossing sleepers this may be disturbed
- if the body produces too little serotonin, not enough melatonin can be produced
- oxidative stress affects the quality of sleep
- During deep sleep, the blood supply to our muscles is greater, allowing our musculoskeletal system and tissues to recover from daytime efforts. 70% of our daily amount of growth hormone is excreted during deep sleep. During die sleep, the body grows and develops the most, for this purpose babies and children also need more sleep than adults.
- Rem sleep (short for Rapid Eye Movement) is the stage of mental recovery. Our brains are very active at this stage, our heart rate and breathing are getting faster and more irregular and our eyes are turning in all directions. At this stage we also dream the most. REM sleep also ensures the processing of the information we have gathered during the day, to organize and store it. The information from our short-term memory is transferred to our long-term memory. This makes certain knowledge and skills more applicable from the day after.
- The pineal gland produces serotonin and converts it into the hormone melatonin, a hormone that affects the sleep-wake rhythm. The release of melatonin to the blood during the day is low and becomes higher over the course of the evening. At night, the highest point is reached. Melatonin can be seen as the pointer of the biological clock: it ensures that the rest of the body knows it will be night. Blue TV light - monitors - smartphones - tablets works disruptively on sleep rhythm, especially later in the evening
- organs such as the liver are active at night because the body is at rest and has energy to "clean".
- oxidative stress reduces the production of serotonin and therefore melatonin
- sleep medication can be a solution to get through a short period of several weeks (with extreme stress or trauma) But in the longer term it backfires, it is addictive and can disrupt the sleep cycle.
- There are more and more studies on the safety and effect of CBD oil. There is no universal dosage, it should be determined experimentally per person, which is why it is very important to work with CBD oil with the same concentration.
