Sleep Series; Analysing why the modern head support works
To analyse why the head support works you must look at all modern research. Research includes Medical, Chiropractic, Natural Healers, Massage Therapists and many researcher records. I came upon a researcher that proved sleep had a healing affect on our body organs. By keeping animals awake until they died and autopsy each he found that without sleep our body organs shut down and we die. This indicates that our organs must receive healing during deep sleep or we develop illnesses and die.
Since poor sleep has be claimed (CNN) to be the cause of poor health then we need to understand why we need to sleep.
The Chinese hard head support was keeping the head in alignment with the body, so all communication was not restricted allowing natural healing nightly.
The head contains the brain which communicates to all body parts through the neck and any restriction will reduce the communication to different body parts. Parts needing healing won't be receiving help. All body organs report to the brain each night during the deep sleep stage. Any restriction would reduce or stop the signals getting to or from the brain just like a kink in a water hose reduces water flow.
The Chinese scholars understood the human body through centuries of learning. Their natural healers have documented the head heart communication as being the most important part in the healing process. Their understanding allowed the making of the perfect head support for their time.
Today we use beds with mattresses which allow the body and shoulders to sink into them. These modern beds gave the body comfort but the bed pillows did not give proper support to the head neck alignment. Without good communication with the brain each night we develop illnesses and die early.
Developing a perfect modern head support was not easy and explaining it is harder. Understanding the brain connection, the mattresses and how they work, sleep positions and body structures and how to measure people; took years of research and understanding.
Getting the right shape and size head support was the answer. We had the sizes but how to measure everyone. We started holding the pillows up to a person’s neck and judging their size. This worked for a show but how could a person buy one through a chart. After finding the relationship that the top vertebra correlates to the top tip of the ear, we now had a way to measure everyone. After several years we put the information into charts for Side sleepers and back sleepers.
Getting the right size head support allowed deep sleep by aligning the head and neck allowing the brain to do its job of keeping our body health.
