Insomnia

The Gladiator Therapeutics Far Infrared Blanket can improve the quality of your sleep.

Insomnia is characterized by difficulty falling or staying asleep and can be acute or chronic. Acute insomnia is brief and often caused by stressful life events like losing a job. Chronic insomnia is when sleep is disrupted several nights a week for at least three months.

There are numerous causes of chronic insomnia. They include poor sleep habits, environmental factors, certain medications, psychological issues such as depression and anxiety disorders, and medical conditions like chronic pain and sleep apnea.

According to the National Sleep Foundation, 30 to 40 percent of adults in the U.S. report having symptoms of insomnia in the last 12 months, and 10 to 15 percent say they have chronic insomnia.

The result of persistent, insufficient sleep can be destructive, both mentally and physically. Symptoms include irritability, mood swings, anxiety, and poor concentration. Insomnia has also been associated with a higher risk of developing chronic disease.

The Gladiator Therapeutics Far Infrared Blanket can help you sleep better by improving the flow of nutrient- and oxygen-rich blood to the brain cells that regulate sleep. Simply lay the blanket on the stomach or lower back as you sleep.

Patented, embedded ceramics in the blanket absorb the body’s ambient heat and convert that heat into far infrared energy in the form of photons. Those photons are then redirected back to the body where they cause water clusters in plasma to vibrate and break apart. Reducing the cluster size makes blood circulation more efficient, and improved circulation will allow better transmission of the signals that regulate sleep.
