Organic Mattresses Might Help Cure Sleep Problems

By: Sonia Kalia-Sagoo

In the last few months, rumours of a recession and our hectic lifestyles are raising the nation's stress levels, with more and more of us susceptible to sleep problems and insomnia. In fact, it is thought that one in five people suffer from lack of sleep, and with the average human spending one third of their life in bed it is no surprise that sleep remedies and gadgets are on the increase - but do they really work? The Sleep Council recommends several self-help methods of ensuring a full quota of sleep without resorting to prescription medicines, including cutting out caffeine and alcohol, removing televisions from the bedroom, exercising during the day and doing simple relaxation exercises. They also advise making the bed itself as comfortable as possible. But - did you know, what your mattress is actually made of could also be affecting your sleep?

buyOrganics' Sonia Kalia-Sagoo explains: "Organic mattresses are made from materials which have been created by traditional farming methods, thereby avoiding the use of highly toxic fertilisers, pesticides, fungicides and herbicides, which would otherwise leave residues in the final product. Organic mattresses are made with 100% unbleached untreated cotton, coir (coconut) and wool products, meaning no health risks to the sleeper. Sleep disturbances have been linked with exposure to such toxic chemicals, as well as skin allergies such as eczema, so it is particularly important for example, for babies to sleep on organic bedding."

Most of us would agree that avoiding chemical contamination is of paramount importance, so choosing an organic mattress and bedding can significantly reduce that exposure, particularly those people with existing sensitivities. As well as being safer for the end user, organic products are less harmful to the environment and for the growers and workers harvesting the crops, meaning that choosing an organic mattress will not only be healthful for yourself, but an ethical choice as well.

During March for National Bed Month, buyOrganics is offering a 10% discount on Ababca organic mattresses. See www.buyorganics.co.uk
