Sleep is the primary foundation of your overall health. Not getting proper rest can lead to a myriad of issues, and yet getting proper, restorative sleep can be so elusive. At Nest Bedding, we are committed to helping you get the necessary sleep your body craves.
One of the many, many factors that sleep affects is your body's ph balance. ph is your body's measurement of alkaline and acid, and too much of either can lead to health issues. But a slightly raised level is optimum, and getting enough sleep every night, deep, restorative sleep, is one of the keys to keeping your body's ph up and healthy.
When you body is in a raised ph state, it is better able to fight off infection and viruses. Your body will shed weight when you are in a healthy ph state. Conversely, a lower ph can affect your health at the cellular level, leaving you susceptible to fatigue, poor sleep, poor digestion, obesity and other health issues such as bone mass loss, kidney stones and cancer. Lower ph levels will cause the body to steal calcium from the bones and to retain weight.
Eating a higher alkaline diet will help keep your body's ph levels elevated. Some dietary factors would include drinking high ph water, eating fresh vegetables and fruits, and getting exercise. Managing stress levels is another big factor in managing your ph levels.
Besides sleep, your sleep environment can also contribute to your ph levels. When purchasing a new mattress, sheets of bedding, you may notice a heavy chemical smell. New bedding and mattresses many times are produced with plastics, pesticides, fungicides, deodorizers and fire retardants. These chemicals weaken your immune system and over-run your body with chemicals, taxing your immune system.
Nest Bedding is committed to helping our customers achieve the rest they need and we do so with non-toxic options that are affordable, unlike many other natural mattress stores which are very over-priced. For example, the Q3 Natural Latex Mattress from Nest Bedding. Our Q3 mattress is made with organic cotton, organic wool and certified organic latex, which is tested to emit no harmful chemicals.
