New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/26/2014 -- Sometimes, in order to solve a persistent problem, the only thing to do is to tackle it head on, and attack it at its core. To handle and eliminate the symptoms, the cause must be targeted. That is the approach taken by many sleep doctors and experts when it comes to dealing with insomnia.
Insomnia is widely known as the inability to go to sleep. However, this sleeping disorder is more serious than people originally think. Affecting millions of Americans and causing significant disturbances in health and one’s overall lifestyle, insomnia can be classified into two broad categories. Sleep onset insomnia is the difficulty to fall asleep; those who do manage to fall asleep but wake up frequently throughout the night are experiencing sleep maintenance insomnia. Recently, a third type of insomnia has been named, which is characterized by waking up too early and having difficulty going back to sleep. This is referred to as “early awakening insomnia”.
There are many treatments for insomnia that are coming out in the market, ranging from medicines and food supplements to different types of sleeping aids. In extreme cases, different types of therapies are recommended. However, there is no treatment that works for everyone. Just because one treatment works for one does not mean it would work for everyone.
Sleep experts put emphasis on the importance of understanding the specific causes of insomnia among people. Acute and chronic insomnia can be caused by depression and anxiety, stress brought on by major life changes or upheavals, environmental factors such as light, noise or temperature shifts, certain types of medication, or other health conditions.
One of the most common causes of sleep disorders, not just insomnia, is extreme temperatures, particularly extreme heat. The body is programmed to sleep better under cool temperature, so when it is too warm, chances are the person won’t be able to get any sleep.
Cooling aids are not just helpful in warding off hot flashes and providing relief from night sweats. They also ultimately aim to promote a more restful and deeper sleep. One such cooling aid, the PolarGel Pillow, is a cool gel pad for temperature related insomnia. It works by using advanced cooling gel technology to absorb body heat and disperse it away from the body. This way, the body’s core temperature is regulated, and quality sleep can be obtained.
PolarGel Pillow is a product of New Home Innovations, and is now available on Amazon.com.
