The “Global Burden of Disease Study” is one of the most comprehensive study of the world. It once again demonstrates that the current health progress is alarming. Worldwide, only 5 % of all people rate as permanently healthy. Apart from the human suffering this also causes huge financial damages on our economy- and health-systems.
Reasons enough to take a closer look to the connections of healthy sleep, sleep disturbances as well as clinical pictures and health disturbances. Years of research revealed that the influence of the factor sleep on our health is huge. About 90 % of our health are determined by healthy sleep.
Revolutionary culture of sleep
Today’s medicine has made major progresses. But, these alone are not enough. When dealing with the question how the prevalent horizontal culture of sleeping flat is influencing our life, our health as well as our life expectancy, Dr. Sydney Ross Singer and his wife Dr. Soma Grismaijer came to this conclusion, too. Summarized, their conclusion was that the common flat sleeping not only may trigger a poor sleeping quality but also health disturbances like for example Alzheimer’s, migraine, sleep apnoea or even strokes. The two scientists and doctors succeeded in proving that the complaints of a flat style of sleeping can be avoided by elevation of the upper body by only 10-30 degrees by means of an experiment.
Years of researches and of experiences from aerospace revealed that blood, too, is able to “feel” gravity. Once the stimuli of pressure and pulling cease in horizontal position, the driving force of the vital functions get lost. In their numerous researches, the NASA scientist Dr. Joan Vernikos came to the conclusion that the missing gravitation may lead to numerous health disturbances. Weightlessness causes a “gravity-deficiency-syndrome” with people concerned and cares for a disturbance of the regulation processes. Problems in the back, the spine, fasciae – caused by lack of movement – are additionally favored by lying flat. In addition to that, often the sleeping underlay has deficits in bedding climate and orthopedics. This makes sleeping not very restful. Symptoms like shortness of breath, sleep apnoea or snoring are serious health hazards which are additionally increased when lying horizontally.
Sleeping the inclined way
Based on more than 25 years of experience and years of experimental researches in close cooperation with Prof. Dr. med. habil. Karl Hecht, space- and sleep-medic, SAMINA succeeded in starting a revolution from the sleeping point of view and to design the worldwide first concept of inclined sleeping concept of this kind. Tests showed, that an inclined position of the total body (3.5° to 5.5°) achieves more advantages than simply a partial elevation of the upper body. So, the gravity- and the health supporting become effective in the entire body. After a short transition phase sleeping on SAMINA Gravity® feels much more natural than the accustomed horizontal sleeping.
Advantages of SAMINA Gravity®
The elevation of the entire body leads to a natural remedy when snoring. Furthermore, the problems of sleep apnoea are counteracted. Present results and experiences show that inclined sleeping delivers a high potential, also for the fascial system. Sleeping inclined improves circulation and microcirculation. Furthermore, the kyphosis, lordosis and scoliosis become positively supported. Reflux problem and heartburn are improved as well as the circulatory and the regulation of the blood pressure are positively supported. The heart-rate-variability as well as blood glucose levels are positively improved.
