Insomnia, sleeping too much, poor quality sleep, even a change in normal sleep patters can all trigger headaches in some people. It’s hard for doctors to get a handle on what might help. According to the Health Central Guide, a team of Australian researchers analyzed medical literature on the effects of certain sleep interventions on tension type headaches.
Results showed that both headache frequency and intensity could be reduced using behavior modification and sleep techniques. This included going to bed only when you are sleepy, getting up if you are unable to sleep for 20 minutes and avoiding stimulants in the evenings.
What About Hydrotherapy?
In our opinion, they forgot one important item. HYDROTHERAPY! Yes, hydrotherapy in warm water that has Waters Choice Natural Enzymes is a pleasant and real way to relax. Undoubtedly, sitting in a hot tub or spa provides stress-relief, mental clarity and is an excellent way to relieve a headache.
Studies show that hydrotherapy can help insomnia, depression, colds, arthritis problems, skin disorders, digestive problems, respiratory, enhance blood circulation, as well as improve the immune system!
Furthermore, soaking in your hot tub has been shown time and time again to increase blood flow to the heart, lungs and other internal organs. This also helps to tone muscles, reduce the size of varicose veins, and ease nervousness.
"The best thing I ever did was to get a hot tub and use Waters Choice all natural enzymes for the best soaking experience I've ever had." - Lisa G.
Clearly, warm water soothes your body for a few reasons. The heat widens blood vessels, which sends nutrient-rich blood throughout your body. Warm water also brings down swelling and loosens tight muscles. In addition to those benefits, the water’s buoyancy takes weight off of painful joints.
On the other hand, according to web MD, it’s important to be cautious when using a hot tub/spa if you have heart disease. Web MD reminds us that when you soak in hot water, your body can’t sweat.
Your blood vessels need to widen to cool you off subsequently making your blood pressure drop. In response to falling blood pressure, your heart rate speeds up. This isn’t typically a problem for healthy people, but if you have heart disease, it can strain your heart.
Limit Your Time
It’s not typically recommended that you stay in the hot tub for too long. If you feel dizzy, overheated, or unwell, get out right away.
Why Should You Use Enzymes
Where does Waters Choice fit into all of this? Great question! Adding enzymes to your hot tub/spa water is like taking vitamins to boost your immune system, but for your water. With enzymes, a healthy living environment is established allowing you to use less chemicals.
It should be noted that many of the chemicals we use in hot tubs/spas are harsh and cause our skin and hair to dry out, our eyes to burn, and give off strong odors. However, when we add enzymes, eliminate some chemicals, and cut back on others, these problems go away, and many positive things happen.
For example, filters are easier to clean and your water becomes softer. In addition, your hair will not turn green, your swim clothes will not fade and your equipment will last longer.
