How Does Bamboo Help Night Time Allergies?

By , October 31, 2016 12:13 pm

The Cause Of Night Time Allergies

You may have heard about the benefits of sleeping on bamboo bedding but may not know how this beautifully comfortable fabric might help and why.

Do you know that the main cause of night allergies including a blocked nose, itching and difficulty breathing can be caused by the dreaded but necessary dust mite. It’s not the mites themselves that cause the allergies but their droppings. Yikes! Sounds horrible doesn’t it? Just as well these little blighters aren’t visible to the naked eye or we’d spend all night trying to finish them off!

What Makes Bamboo Bed Linen So Successful In Preventing Or Easing Allergies?

Bamboo is ideal for Sensitive or Allergy prone skin. 100% Bamboo threads are very fine and create a smooth and soothing fabric. As a natural product Bamboo Fabric is Hypoallergenic, dust mite resistant, biodegradable and totally sustainable.

Whilst there is no proven scientific evidence that bamboo helps relieve night allergies, you only have to take a look at the mass of reviews online to see that it actually works. We would even go as far as to say that if you switch to bamboo, you’ll likely never go back to cotton.

The very fine threads mean that you are protected from the dust mite droppings but also, this natural material is cooling so if your itching is caused by over-heating you’d benefit hugely.

Of course there are many causes when it comes to allergies but if yours are exacerbated at night then this may well be the reason. Did you know that you own natural levels of anti-histamine drop at night?

A Few More Tips For Night Time Itching

One amazing yet cost effective aid to the relief of night itching is ‘Witch Hazel Gel’ it’s cheap and so cooling. If you tend to suffer itching in certain spots then this is a handy item to have in your bathroom cupboard.

Anti-histamines of course. If you’re looking to cut down on your intake of these tablets then you may think about taking a look at these foods, all naturally high in anti-histamine – watercress, onion, garlic, camomile, peppermint, ginger, Pomegranates, apples and peaches.

Sometimes it’s easy to overlook things other than medicines. Processed foods may also make your allergies worse. We recently discovered that Wine contains histamine. How very upsetting!

If you are still unsure about what bamboo can do for you then do take a look at some unbiased reviews. Of course we know it’s amazing but if you don’t just want to take our word for it then a bit of research might help your decision.

Good luck fighting those night time allergies!

How to prevent night sweats

Bamboo Bed Linen proven to help with Night Sweats

Many people suffer from overheating at night or night sweats. This can be a distressing , very uncomfortable condition which can seriously impact on restful sleep and overall health.
Regular sufferers should certainly see their doctor as this condition can be a symptom of some very serious illnesses. However for many people night sweats cannot be cured and its something they simply have to live with.

Natural Bamboo Bed Linen

The condition can be very much helped by sleeping in natural bed linen. Bamboo Bed Linen can make a huge  difference. It has huge advantages over cotton – Bamboo is softer, stronger, more lustrous, and three times more absorbent than cotton – it wicks away moisture, so it is cool in Summer and warm in Winter. The softness is ideal for babies and those with sensitive skin or allergic skin conditions. The structure of the Bambo Fibre uniquely wicks away moisture from the body extremely effectively, reducing the body’s temperature.

Here are a couple of testimonials to the effectiveness of Bamboo Bed Linen.

“Since you spend about a third of your life in bed (8 hours per day) and you loose the most sweat there (which causes itching which worsens skin problems) bedding is the most important part of trying to relieve skin problems. Temperature control, moist wicking and breathability is of great importance in this aspect. 100% Bamboo has proven to be the best fabric in all these aspects for the skin problems of H. MB Germany”

“We can confirm that the 100% bamboo has indeed provided a huge relief on the skin problems of H. He has a dust mite allergy and has atopic eczema. The duvet covers already made a difference and with the duvets and mattress topper the relief is even bigger.”

Lack of Sleep Epidemic hits UK

By , September 15, 2014 10:16 am

In the last 5 years the number of adults not getting the recommended  7 hours of sleep has soared from 38% to over 60% !

This dramatic rise in sleeplessness is a real threat to individuals  health. While some people so certainly function well and stay healthy on  less sleep the vast majority of people  need at least 7 hours sleep specialists agree.

One of the  causes of this rapid rise of sleep problems  it has been suggested is the use of mobiles and tablets late in the evening. These emit light from the blue end  of the spectrum. Light which can play havoc with melatonin levels. Melatonin it has been shown control our sleep patterns so changes in levels of melatonin can  seriously effect the quality of sleep we experience.

So it is  probably wise not to use phones and tablets an hour before going to bed to give you a good chance of getting a great night’s sleep.

Sleep Guide – Having an afternoon nap

By , January 10, 2012 3:30 pm

It’s only natural

  • Most of us have a natural dip in alertness between 2 – 4pm.
  • A 15 minute nap when you’re tired can be a very effective way of staying alert throughout the day. Avoid napping for longer than 20 minutes, after which you will enter deep sleep and feel even worse when you wake up.

See a doctor if your problem continues

  • If you have trouble falling asleep night after night, or if you always feel tired the next day, you might have a sleep disorder. It is advisable to seek more advice from your doctor. Most sleep disorders can be treated effectively.

Between the Sheets Sleep Advice 6

By , July 5, 2011 3:04 pm

Create the routine of  regular bedtime and wake up time

  • Make a habit of going to bed and waking up at the same time each day, even on days off and weekends. This helps  your body clock to keep to these times. Resisting the urge for a lie-in can really help in keeping you alert throughout the day.
  • If you haven’t slept well, don’t  sleep in longer than normal,  getting up at your normal time keeps your body in its normal wake-up routine.
  • Remember that  even after only four hours of sleep the brain has gained many of the important benefits.
