Investing In Your Health And A Good Mattress

Oct 28, 2013

When you go on to make an investment in your personal life, it is mostly for entertainment, convenience of setting up your own business. It is important to differentiate the necessary investments from optional ones. While most of us prefer to buy High Definition Televisions and Blu-Ray home theaters, they are not an absolute necessity. This is not to discourage investments on entertainment but to consider the factors that matter the most. But now the question is what matters the most? And for different people, different things hold a different meaning.

Even though it is true that people have different preferences, the common factor between all of us is that we spend around 7-9 hours of our day in bed. You may think that as long as your bed is comfortable and cheap, there is nothing more to it. It is reasonable to question why we would invest in an expensive bed if we already have a comfortable one. One of the primary factors to consider is your health. Your mattress may be the most comfortable one in the world, but have you ever considered its material and the threat it poses to your health?

Although there are a number of factors that are to be blamed for the evolution of different diseases and the increased number of medical disorders, modern mattresses could also be one of them. There is a large range of mattresses being made up of polyurethane foam, formaldehyde, boric acid and polybrominated diphenyl ethers. These are chemicals that are extremely hazardous and poisonous to human health. You may wonder how that is relevant as you are not going to consume the mattress. But as a matter of fact you would. If you buy a brand new mattress, you could easily notice the intense odor it gives off. This is caused by the emission of different gases by these chemicals.

Having considered the poisonous gases mentioned above, it would not be wise to breathe them in and out for 7 to 8 hours every day. Even though your mattress may be heavenly comfortable, this may introduce unexpected problems such as asthma, neurological disorders, reproductive problems and different forms of cancer. If you have an allergy to any of the chemicals, it would be immediately prominent otherwise the cause of these problems may go unnoticed and continued use of such mattresses may lead to the growth of such diseases.

There is nothing more important in life than health. With the time spent in sleeping, it could be said that a considerable portion of our lives is spent in bed. If we can spend thousands of dollars, we can certainly spend a much lesser amount on health. As a sleep doctor, the advice would be to get a mattress that is composed or natural and organic elements such as the ones made by Nest Bedding. Not only would it eliminate any health risks from your life, it would also provide unmatched comfort and support that would make you feel healthier and active every morning.
