Traditional Chinese Medicine claims sleep to be the least expensive and most widely available method of staying healthy, one that also promotes longevity. Western medicine appreciates the value of sleep as well, and recognises it as a basic requirement of the human body. It is crucial for the health of both body and mind. Sleep regenerates the body, hence its deficiencies have a negative impact on our mood and look. One of the main functions of sleep is ”turning off” the activity of the central nervous system. During this commences its ”restoration”, i.e. the brain repairs any ”damage” as well as memorises new information. This implies sleep cleanses the brain, and during various biochemical mechanisms, which are responsible for long-term memory. Sleep also affects the function of the immune system and secretion of certain hormones, e.g. growth hormone. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, toxins are eliminated during sleep through the action of the lymphatic system, liver, lungs and the large intestine. Each of the elimination stages occurs between 9pm and 7am – in two-hour cycles, it is therefore important that sleep is not disturbed during this period. Otherwise, the toxins will not be fully eliminated, and this will reflect on how we feel.
TIENS Health Pillow, based on the Traditional Chinese Medicine, is shaped especially to provide ideal support for the cervical spine. It is made of light and soft pearl wool that keeps it in proper shape. Because of the wool’s elastic properties, the pillow offers strong support to the neck, while putting less pressure on the cervical vertebrae and such prevents gravity-caused neck strain during sleep. Thanks to a combination of magnetic field, infrared light and negative ions the pillow supports the proper function of the cells in the body and improves their oxygenation. Sleeping with TIENS Health Pillow may help balance the biological magnetic field of the human body, relieve fatigue, improve the length and quality of sleep.
