60 Is The New 40!

People are living longer; that's a fact. Are they living longer healthy is the question? The answer to that one, I'm sorry to say, is usually no. Many may seem healthy but if they're popping pills they're not. Part of a healthy lifestyle is sleep, and part of healthy sleep is the right neck pillow.

Do You Breathe Okay At Night?



If you don't breathe well when you sleep, that's what the CPAP Pillow is made for.  You can actually get one of those finger pulse oximeters, and it will tell you your blood oxygen level.  If you've ever seen one of these at the doctor's office, it give your pulse, heart rate, and O2 lvel.  The oxygen level should be 96% and higher.

Using Your Traction Pillow...

I made a video that showed me using the traction pillow in my office. I hope this helps if you have any questions; you can always call arc4life with any questions you might have. I put a dust cover on this pillow. They are real nice to have and you can put them on other pillows too.

The Towel Roll For The Neck...

We want to use this towel roll to help get us used to using a neck pillow. This will help prevent soreness from using the neck pillow. The reason you will have soreness is that your neck just isn't used to it. Putting a curve into a neck that may have no curve is a adjustment for the body especially. Someone with some curvature may have a little soreness, whereas someone with a flat neck or a reverse curve may be especially sore.

My Neck Was Sore After A Night Of Sleep On The Traction Pillow

Soreness after the first night on a new neck pillow is normal. That's why we recommend using the pillow gradually. It's even recommend to use the gravity sided gradually first. Now, don't take me the wrong way, you can be sore from using the gravity side also. We have found that this side is slightly easier to get used to than the "V" side. Soreness can actually be a good thing; then we know we're making change. I have a family member who feels like she's getting a neck hump or hunch-back. I told her along with the pillow, to start doing some head retraction exercises. I explained the to her - I don't know if she got it though? At least she's got the traction pillow...

Turmeric - A Big-Time Healer!



The fact that it reduces inflation helps to reduce pain also. Inflammation is one of those things that contribute to many disease processes. So reducing inflammation not only may reduce pain but can help one to stay healthy.

Biomechanically speaking inflammation typically puts pressure on nerves or a particular nerve and causes pain.

Pain is your body telling you there's a problem. One tricky thing however is that we can have pressure on a nerve or nerves in a particular spot that doesn't detect pain. Hence you can have a disease process building and not even know it's there...

As another note, they have found that taking the turmeric with black pepper helps to activate it. Curcumin is the active component in turmeric.
