Dreaming of good health and wellbeing...

Summary

Five weeks since its release, the thought-provoking movie “Inception” is still trending on Twitter. The movie’s success may be credited to the actors and visual effects, but I think that Inception’s popularity really comes down to its fascinating theme…dreams.

On a physiological level, dreams have been described as a response to neural processes when you sleep, while some people believe that they are reflections of the subconscious.

There are however many definitions to describe the act of dreaming with many further theories on why they occur and even the ‘apparent’ interpretation behind them. One thing is for sure - dreams occur when you sleep…the natural daily process when your body rests and recovers. It’s also essential for good health and wellbeing.

It doesn’t matter what you dream, but rather the mere fact that you’re dreaming means you’re probably sleeping (which is good) and hopefully doing it naturally without any medication or drugs.

Because intense dreaming usually occurs in deep sleep, it’s essential to avoid stimulants like caffeine and alcohol. Antidepressants may also inhibit REM sleep (a sleeping stage when the brain is highly active).

Renowned ‘sleep-doctor’ Dr. Michael J. Breus has even questioned if statin drugs can be linked to sleep disorders in this article in The Huffington Post.

By ensuring that your body and brain receive the correct nutrients and by practicing effective relaxation techniques, you’ll be on the right path to promote not only deep sleep and a good night’s rest, but also improved long-term physical and mental health.

You can get the right blend of these nutrients by supplementing daily with Total Balance, Omega 3 DHA Fish Oil, and Neuro-Natural Sleep.
