Electricity, large pharmaceutical companies and the industrial revolution are the culprits of our lack of sleep.
The nasty electric light that Edison invented confuses our circadian rhythm and the hormone cycle that regulates sleep and many other gene functions.
However, many people do not know this.
Whenever night comes, you will have countless dreams when you close your eyes and sleep. The exploration of dreams and sleep is little appreciated. What does the dream mean to mankind and what is the inevitable connection to sleep?
We don’t know this point.
Until a man named David Randall wrote a book that opened the infinite human dream of dreams…
Randall’s “Dream” has many cognitions for those who are confused after sleep. This book discusses our unconscious moments. Writing this book should begin with his personal experience of sleepwalking.
One night, when Randall woke up, he found himself lying in the hallway of the apartment, his hands holding a wounded leg. This is his first sleepwalking experience, but he does not know what happened in the dream to cause such consequences. Randall went to the hospital’s sleeping room to spend the night to solve his problems, but it was unclear why the doctor informed the incident, and he could not recommend him a reliable treatment strategy.
Randall was very surprised to find that human beings were so poor in the field of sleep that he spent the rest of his life exploring the truth of sleep.
Many people have experienced such things in their sleep, not to mention the people who suffer from insomnia and sleep disorders.
So he said what most people want to say: “Sleep is not something we should worry about in the first few years of the 21st century,” he said. “In most of us, the importance of sleep may be related to the use of The floss is about the same degree of importance.”
Is it real ?
People living in real life who are not able to bear the weight of life are often plagued by lack of sleep. Even worse, those who take sleeping pills in large quantities and spend thousands of dollars to buy mattresses that can make people fall asleep safely still do not help.
This can be seen from the sales of Randall’s book—how large a group of figures are in people affected by sleep disorders.
When it comes to factors that affect sleep, people first need to know—the tiny pineal body that appears to be in the reptile stage. When it feels prolonged darkness, it produces melatonin that induces sleep.
Randall explained further: “Full light, especially with a hint of blue, like the blue light of the sky can induce the pineal gland to mistakenly believe that it should secrete certain hormones.”
However, it is not clear that the pineal gland not only secretes melatonin but also secretes a hormone called cortisol. The inhibition of cortisol and melatonin antagonizes human beings’ sunrise and sunset.
“Every two-fifths of American adults are unable to sleep or stay awake every night,” Randall wrote. The worst part is that soldiers and sailors have committed fatal mistakes because of too much sleep. Until now, I can’t make up for it.
So, he then made an eye-opening prediction: By 2020, all US soldiers will have a sleep monitor on their wrists. Randall wrote in the book: “With just a few mouse clicks, a commander can understand how long each soldier he had slept had actually slept, and thereby determine what decisions he or she might make. ”
However, Randall did not know that there is no need to wait until 2020. Now smart products can accurately monitor the data and upload it to the cloud through big data analysis.
Randall traces the history of sleeping pills in one of the most shocking chapters of the book, and has almost criticized the “drowsiness fraud” of large pharmaceutical companies. In the United States alone, these powerful pills are a $30 billion business, which is slightly higher than the cost of going to the cinema every year for the global population.
However, “many studies have shown that sleeping pills do not significantly improve sleep quality and that the improvement in the number of sleeps is only slightly better,” Randle wrote.
Written in the back
The success of Dreamland reveals the ignorance of contemporary people in the field of sleep, but longs for a desire to understand, and it occupies a pivotal position in the history of literature.
The melatonin, monitoring and sleeping pills and the PEGASI sent by the book coincide with the information that everyone wants to convey to sleep. It also makes it the most powerful endorsement of phototherapy to improve insomnia, hoping to be as curious as David. You can calmly read this book, and I dare promise that you will open up a whole new field.
For those who have been suffering from insomnia for a long time, perhaps only by understanding the secrets behind sleep can they be better able to solve the problem and eradicate the cause.
