Healthy spine - the fundation of a healthy body
Why is sleeping on a firm mattress beneficial to our health?
We sleep about one third of our lifetime. When we sleep, our muscles relax and our body stretches. All our movements are different from the movements we do when we are awake. Movements in our sleep require less energy – sleep is the best time for our spine’s rehabilitation.
The mattress we sleep on should be as firm as possible without disturbing our sleep. We should sleep in a straight position, on our backs, with our arms stretched alongside the body and our legs relaxed. In such position, our weight is distributed evenly, our muscles are very relaxed, and all dislocations of vertebrae, we might have encountered during the day, are slightly corrected.
The heart works under little strain in this position, easily pumping the blood, and the circulation is good. Better blood circulation means easier work for our liver as it removes toxins from our body.
A well functioning liver means better metabolism. That way we can lose six to ten pounds (three to five kilograms) of weight, and get rid of many health problems after just two months of sleeping on a firm mattress.
In the first few days of sleeping on a firm mattress, we will feel muscle and spine pain. When the misalignment of vertebrae is corrected (10-14 days), the pain will disappear.
Why is sleeping on a soft mattress harmful
Our liver is the chemical laboratory of our body. Thousands of chemical reactions, collectively known as metabolism, depend on the proper functioning of this laboratory.
Science shows that even spacing of the thoracic vertebrae, starting from the third up to the twentieth, allows efficient functioning of the liver. People who sleep on soft mattresses always have those vertebrae bowed, and that significantly worsens their liver's function...Read more on pages 44
