Why is Everyone Talking About “Good Sleep Hygiene?”
Michael Maniscalco Presentation on CDB 9/26/2020
The term “Good Sleep hygiene,” might seem strange; it’s concerning the critical importance of high-quality sleep without disruptions. When we sleep, we actually critical promote healing properties throughout the body. Getting a good night’s sleep is critical for optimal health. The side effects and complications associated with sleep disorders are irritability, fatigue, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disorders, chronic disease, diabetes, depression, behavioral issues, stroke, and brain function impairment. If not rectified, over time, sleep deprivation can lead to heart attacks, stroke, diabetes, and other serious complications. According to the National Sleep Foundation, insomnia and sleep disruptions can be caused by the following: Medical conditions (sleep apnea, back pain, acid reflux, arthritis) Depression Anxiety PTSD Lifestyle Disruptors (naps, shift work, circadian rhythm imbalance) Medications Caffeine Alcohol Nicotine Heavy meals On top of these disturbances, lies the most common issue that interferes with circadian rhythm, which is blue light. Pathways of brainwave activity and wavelengths lie in various regions of the brain, and they can be affected by stimuli and blue light: Delta waves promote deep sleep and regeneration, beta make us sleep lighter with emotional dreaming, alpha promotes faster activity in a relaxed state, and theta causes stress and anxiety.
Blue light emits wavelengths that contribute to sleep disturbances within our brains. Blue light comes from artificial lighting and electronics like fluorescent and LED lightbulbs, laptops, mobile phones, iPad, television, some alarm clocks, fiber-optic cable boxes, and other devices that use blue light. The issue is that blue light makes your brain think that it’s still daytime, which makes it difficult to fall and stay asleep. Can CBD Help You Sleep More Soundly? In 2019, Dr. Scott Shannon and his researchers conducted a study called, “Cannabidiol in Anxiety and Sleep: A Large Case Series.” Their objective was to determine whether CBD helps improve sleep and/or anxiety in a clinical population. The final sample consisted of 72 adults presenting with primary concerns of anxiety or poor sleep. Anxiety scores decreased within the first month in 57 patients (79.2%) and remained decreased during the study duration. Sleep scores improved within the first month in 48 patients (66.7%) but fluctuated over time. CBD was well tolerated in all but 3 patients. Their conclusion reported that cannabidiol may hold benefit for anxiety-related disorders, and that more controlled clinical studies are needed. 1 There have been many studies purporting that CBD is well tolerated as an add on sleep enhancer. It is thought to balance the serotonin receptors in the brain. It’s always best to research any new therapy for your own knowledge and judgement.
