Yes, Enjoy Better Sleep through the night

hydrogen therapy for sleep problems

For how long have you not been sleeping well at night?

Do you feel charged up to enjoy another day when you wake up? If not, you have not slept well the previous night. As we age, the top 4 problems that affect our quality of sleep are (1) Nocturia, (2) Snoring, (3) Insomnia, and (4) Shift work.

Our body follows the circadian cycle. Our body needs to be in complete rest at night to detox, repair, regenerate, and heal. We should be sound asleep between 11 pm - 6 am so that our body can smoothly complete the process of self-healing every night.

Consequences of Not Sleeping Well

If we stay up late at night, we will lose the opportunity to heal and it is irrecoverable. When we were young, it may take an afternoon nap to recover from a sleepless night. When we are above the age of 40, we may require 3 nights of good sleep to compensate for a sleepless night. This is because our ability to restore energy becomes less efficient as we age.

When our sleep is disturbed at night, the healing process will be disrupted. And if the condition persists for a long time. Our body will become weaker and weaker due to disrupted maintenance. Beyond a certain threshold, our body will break down and we fall sick. These are typically chronic metabolic illnesses such as hypertension, diabetes, kidney failure, leading to heart attack and maybe cancer growth.

Chronic Illnesses and Symptoms will Persist

Modern medication may be able to suppress the symptoms of these chronic illnesses, but it will not be able to solve the problem. The doctor is likely to advise us to take the medication for life to suppress the symptoms to make us look like we are fine.

All these chronic illnesses and symptoms will persist as long as we are not sleeping well at night. Noted that mental condition, diets, and lifestyle contribute to our total well-being. We would not like to recover from these illnesses if we were not able to sleep well.

So we must make all the effort and adjustments to our lives to make sure we sleep well. However, there are medical conditions that affect our sleep that we may not be able to control, such as Nocturia, Sleep Apnea, and Insomnia.

Beyond traditional medicine, Hydrogen Inhalation Therapy is proven to be effective in helping us to sleep better.

Nocturia

Nocturia is a condition characterized by the need to wake up during the night to urinate. It is not a good sign for people to wake up to urinate at night. Occasionally, we may wake up to urine at night.

When we start to wake up consistently to urine once a night, it is a sign of problems to come. The frequency may gradually increase to two or more times a night. And eventually, it may be as bad as waking up hourly to urinate nightly.

There may be many lifestyle choices that may induce night urination. The top 3 reasons are as follows:

late dinner

1. Late Dinner

Remember a time when we attended a wedding dinner? To celebrate the happy occasion, we simply ate too much till late at night. And for that night, we could not sleep well and we kept waking up to urine. So a simple lifestyle change to have a good sleep is to finish dinner early, about 6 hours before bedtime and skip supper.

2. Drinking too much before going to sleep

Drinking too much water, particularly alcohol, late at night would induce night urination. We do not suggest that we go to bed thirsty. We should keep our body hydrated. We recommend that we drink all the fluids that we need in the early evening, followed by a half glass of warm water before bed.

3. Physical Stress

Physical exercise is part of a good lifestyle, but doing it late at night before going to bed is a poor practice. We observed that with the modern busy lifestyle. Groups of friends would engage in sports after work. After the workout, they adjunct to late supper, accompanied by beers. This group of friends would likely experience night urination early in their lives.

While lifestyle choices are easy to change, we are not critical of them until they start to induce medical problems. Furthermore, some medications can potentially induce nocturia by increasing urine production, irritating the bladder, or affecting kidney function. Here are some classes of medications commonly associated with nocturia:

taking medications
  • Diuretics: Diuretics, also known as water pills, are medications prescribed to increase urine production and reduce fluid retention in conditions such as hypertension, heart failure, and kidney disease. Common diuretics include hydrochlorothiazide, furosemide, and spironolactone.

  • Antihypertensive Medications: Some medications used to treat high blood pressure, such as calcium channel blockers and alpha-blockers, can cause nocturia as a side effect.

  • Cholinergic Medications: Drugs that stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, such as medications used to treat Alzheimer's disease (e.g., donepezil), may increase bladder contractions and lead to nocturia.

  • Antidepressants and Antipsychotics: Certain antidepressants and antipsychotic medications can affect bladder function and increase the risk of nocturia. Examples include tricyclic antidepressants (e.g., amitriptyline) and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) like sertraline.

  • Sedatives and Hypnotics: Medications used to promote sleep, such as benzodiazepines (e.g., diazepam, alprazolam) and non-benzodiazepine sedative-hypnotics (e.g., zolpidem, eszopiclone), may cause nocturia by altering sleep patterns and bladder function.

  • Antidiabetic Medications: Some medications used to manage diabetes, such as SGLT-2 inhibitors (e.g., canagliflozin, dapagliflozin), work by increasing glucose excretion in the urine and may cause nocturia as a side effect.

It's essential to note that the relationship between medication use and nocturia can vary from person to person, and not everyone will experience this side effect.

READ the instructions of the medication that is prescribed and understand their potential side effects.

consult a doctor

When you are suffering from nocturia, which doctor do you go to? Is there a specialist that could help you stop nocturia like lowering your blood pressure?

First, you would go to your family doctor to evaluate your medical history, perform a physical examination, and order initial tests to determine the potential causes of your nocturia.

Depending on their initial finding, your family doctor may send you to

  1. Urologist: A urologist specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders related to the urinary system in both men and women. They can conduct more specialized tests, such as urodynamic studies, cystoscopy, and ultrasound imaging, to identify the underlying cause of nocturia and recommend appropriate treatments.

  2. Nephrologist: A nephrologist is a specialist in kidney disorders. If kidney function is suspected to contribute to nocturia, or if there are underlying kidney conditions, a nephrologist may be involved in the evaluation and management of the condition.

  3. Endocrinologist: Endocrinologists specialize in disorders related to hormones and may be involved if conditions such as diabetes insipidus or diabetes mellitus are contributing to nocturia.

  4. Gynecologist/Urogynecologist: For women experiencing nocturia, a gynecologist or urogynecologist may be involved in assessing and treating conditions such as pelvic organ prolapse or overactive bladder.

  5. Geriatrician: A geriatrician specializes in the care of older adults. Nocturia can be particularly prevalent among older adults due to age-related changes in bladder function, medication use, and underlying health conditions.

The Geriatrician may suggest that nocturia is common among older adults, and it is not to be concerned about.

Hydrogen Therapy can help to alleviate Nocturia

At The H2 Therapy, we agree that as we age, our bodily function may not be as efficient. However, all of us deserve a good night's sleep. We have observed that many customers have their frequency of night urination reduced from 6-7 times a night to once a night in the early morning after 5 am, after a few sessions of hydrogen therapy.

When the customer was able to adjust to a healthier lifestyle, coupled with hydrogen therapy, the problem of nocturia would be relieved quickly.

Snoring

snoring

Snoring can be a symptom of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Snoring occurs when the flow of air through the mouth and nose is partially obstructed during sleep, leading to vibrations in the throat tissues. While snoring itself is common and not always indicative of a serious health problem, it can be a sign of underlying sleep-disordered breathing, including obstructive sleep apnea.

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the inflamed muscles in the throat collapse during sleep, causing the airway to become partially or completely blocked. This obstruction leads to pauses in breathing or shallow breathing, which can disrupt sleep patterns and reduce oxygen levels in the blood.

We would probably not be aware of our snoring problem until our sleeping partner complains about it. Or until the problem becomes so severe that we do not feel energized when we wake up, we experience morning headaches, difficulty concentrating, irritability, and witnessed breathing pauses during sleep ourselves.

The risk factors that increase the likelihood of developing obstructive sleep apnea, include obesity, older age, male gender, and anatomical abnormalities of the airway.

Here are some common approaches to managing and treating sleep apnea:

lifestyle changes

1. Lifestyle Changes

A fat old man has the highest risk of developing sleep Apnea. The simple answer to fix snoring is to slim down and reduce the inflammation at the air passageway. 

Watch our lifestyle, diet, and exercise to lose weight. Avoid activities that would induce inflammation at the air passageway such as smoking and alcohol

2. Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Therapy

CPAP therapy involves wearing a mask connected to a machine that delivers a continuous flow of air to keep the airway open during sleep.

In his book, Sleep and Snoring Matters 4th Edition Dr Kenny Pang expressed that CPAP treatment compared to no treatment ( in over 2,700 patients) over a period of seven years, showed that the CPAP group did not have a higher rate of survival compared to the group that did not receive treatment ( published in New England Journal Medicine 2016). 

Getting CPAP treatment is as good as not getting treatment. See the link for the original documents.

3. Surgery

Surgical options may be considered for individuals with severe sleep apnea. Surgical procedures aim to increase the size of the airway or reduce tissue obstruction. Surgery may remove the obstruction and relieve the snoring. 

Surgery removes the symptoms that cause snoring, not the root cause that induces the symptoms. The big question to ask is after surgery, what are the chances that snoring may return? If snoring returns, is another surgery required to fix the problem?

4. Hydrogen Therapy

A new way to reduce snoring during sleep is hydrogen inhalation therapy. Hydrogen gas is effective in reducing the inflammation in the air passageway, thus clearing up the inflamed air passageway to facilitate easier breathing.

At The H2 Therapy, many customers who come to enjoy the hydrogen therapy sleep during the therapy. Some customers would snore. However, after a few sessions of therapy, their snoring would reduce significantly. And their sleep at night would have improved significantly.

When the customer was able to adjust to a healthier lifestyle, coupled with hydrogen therapy, the problem of snoring would be relieved quickly.

Insomnia

insomnia

Insomnia, which refers to difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or experiencing non-restorative sleep despite adequate opportunity for sleep, can have various causes, including:

stress and anxiety

1. Stress and Anxiety

Stressful life events, work-related pressures, relationship problems, financial concerns, and other sources of stress can contribute to insomnia.

2. Poor Sleep Habits

Irregular sleep schedules, inconsistent bedtime routines, excessive napping during the day, and engaging in stimulating activities (e.g., using electronic devices) close to bedtime can disrupt the body's natural sleep-wake cycle.

3. Environmental Factors

Environmental factors such as noise, light exposure, uncomfortable room temperature, and uncomfortable bedding or mattress can disrupt sleep and contribute to insomnia.

Treating insomnia typically involves a combination of lifestyle changes, behavioral therapies, and, in some cases, medications. Here are some strategies to help address and improve insomnia:

• Establish a Regular Sleep Routine: Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends. Consistency helps regulate your body's internal clock and promotes better sleep. Develop a calming pre-sleep routine to signal to your body that it's time to wind down. This may include activities such as reading a book, taking a warm bath, practicing relaxation techniques (e.g., deep breathing, meditation), or gentle stretching.

• Limit Exposure to Screens Before Bed: Reduce exposure to electronic devices (e.g., smartphones, tablets, computers, TVs) at least an hour before bedtime, as the blue light emitted by screens can interfere with the production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep-wake cycles.

• Watch Your Diet and Avoid Stimulants: Avoid heavy meals, caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol to 6 hours before bedtime, as they can disrupt sleep patterns and make it harder to fall asleep.

• Exercise Regularly: Engage in regular physical activity, but try to avoid vigorous exercise close to bedtime, as it may be too stimulating and interfere with sleep. Aim for moderate-intensity exercise earlier in the day.

• Learn Meditation to relax: Practice stress-reduction techniques such as mindfulness meditation, progressive muscle relaxation, journaling, or therapy to help manage stress and anxiety that may be contributing to insomnia.

• Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I): CBT-I is a highly effective treatment for insomnia that addresses maladaptive thoughts and behaviors related to sleep. It may involve techniques such as stimulus control, sleep restriction, relaxation training, and cognitive restructuring.

• Sleep Medications: In some cases, healthcare providers may prescribe medications to help with short-term insomnia or when other treatments have not been effective. However, medications are typically used cautiously and for a limited time due to the risk of dependence and side effects.

• Hydrogen Inhalation Therapy: Having a session of hydrogen therapy will relax your body and put you to sleep.

Shift Work

shift work

The number 1 problem for people doing shift work is health. If you are doing shift work now just look around your workplace. How is the health of your fellow workers who are above the age of 40? Do they have the following challenges?

High blood pressure
• High cholesterol
• High blood sugar

Most likely they are already on medication for the 3 highs and more.
Many of them may have suffered one or more of the following problems:

• Itches due to eczema
• Chronic back pain or joint pain
• Overweight
• Chronic constipation
• Feeling tired all the time

These problems are very typical in industries that reliance heavily on the night shift, such as

• Healthy care services that operate 24*7
• Facility Security service
• Logistic services, such as the seaport, the airport, and 24*7 logistic centers
• Manufacturing Facilities that operate 24*7
• Night Entertainment

The personnel in the shift work industry are likely to suffer from chronic illnesses in the early 40s. They would put up with medication and after 10-15 years, the worst-case scenario is to suffer a stroke, heart attack, or kidney failure at a relatively young age.

Hydrogen Therapy may help to strengthen their body in the short run. Helping them to sleep better during the day or during the night when not on shift work.

The only way for these groups of people to return to health is to manage themselves out of the night shift. It is not an easy matter to advise. The reader will have to decide if it is worth their health for the night shift job.

How to tune our body back to have good sleep?

tune your body back with hydrogen therapy

Hydrogen gas inhalation is non-invasive and safe without any side effects. When hydrogen gas is inhaled, it goes to the bloodstream and transverses the entire body within 15 minutes. While flowing through our blood vessels, along with the blood, it dissolves inflammation into water clearing the path for better oxygen and nutrients delivery. Thus, helping our body to heal better and faster.

There are more than a thousand papers written about hydrogen therapy. There are currently many ongoing studies on how hydrogen inhalation can help ease cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and many more challenges in hospitals. Through the many trials, the first amazing result was that these patients got to sleep better, speeding up their recovery.

Hydrogen gas has been recognized as one medical gas that has potential in the treatment of cardiovascular disease, inflammatory disease, neurodegenerative disorders, and cancer. As a hydroxyl radical and peroxynitrite scavenger, and due to its anti-inflammatory effects, hydrogen gas may work to prevent/relieve the adverse effects caused by chemotherapy and radiotherapy without compromising its anti-cancer potential.

Hydrogen gas may also work alone or synergistically with other therapy to suppress tumor growth via inducing apoptosis, inhibiting CSCs-related and cell cycle-related factors, etc. Read the article “Hydrogen Gas in Cancer Treatment”. 

The greater benefits of hydrogen gas are that

• Unlike patented drugs, hydrogen gas is a natural element that has existed since the beginning of time
• Unlike manufactured drugs, hydrogen gas is harvested from water
• Unlike medication, hydrogen is a natural substance that is produced within the human body
• Unlike medication, hydrogen gas has no side effects on the human body
• Unlike hyperbaric gas treatment, hydrogen gas is served in an open unconstrained environment
• Unlike surgery, hydrogen inhalation therapy is non-invasive. No needles or knife required

And it works.
