Memory and Concentration problems (or cognitive symptoms) at the younger age frequently co-exist with sleep disturbance, fatigue, anxiety and depression. It becomes more important if someone has memory and concentration symptoms without anxiety or depression.
Cognitive disorders are becoming more common as the ratio of senior population is getting higher in modern societies. Dementia is one of the biggest public health problem in the western countries. BB Weighted Blankets increases serotonin, ‘feel-good’ hormone, which improves your mood and decrease the risk for depression. Depression results in impaired attention and concentration, and is also a risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease.
Sleep is necessary for memory consolidation, and feeling alert and refreshed. BB Weighted Blankets improve attention and concentration by helping for better sleep and mood and increased serotonin level.
Menopause is a natural part of ageing that usually occurs between 45 and 55 years of age. 1% of women experience premature menopause before 40 years of age. Menopause doesn’t present as a sudden stop of the period. The symptoms start months or years before the last period and it continues as the estrogen level decreases.
Some women have up to 8-10 years of peri-menopausal symptoms. Severe symptoms can interfere the quality of life and daily functions. Hormone replacement therapy - HRT, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy – CBT and life style changes are recommended for relieving severe symptoms.
Insomnia, fatigue, hot flushes, night sweats, weight gain, mood changes and memory or concentration problems are very common in menopausal and peri-menopausal stages.
BB Weighted Blankets can be used as an alternative and safe option for insomnia, hot flushes and fluctuations of the mood. BB Weighted Blanket’s FIR energy can ease menopausal symptoms by improving the metabolism and circulation and helping thermal regulation of the body.
