BED OF NAILS - REVIEW & GIVEAWAY

«Oldest ‹Older 1 – 200 of 272 Newer› Newest»



I have issues......  seriously - just ask my husband if you don't believe me, he will tell you.  Really though there are a lot but I will only tell you about a few, don't want to publicly prove my instanity so we will just stick with a few!
First, my back and shoulder hurt - almost all of the time.  I had shoulder surgery 3 1/2 years ago but it still hurts, especially in the winter.  Not sure why but whenever it is cold it just seems so much worse.  My back has always had issues, not sure why and not sure what to do about it!
Second, I don't sleep.  Well actually I do, just not very much.  No matter how much my back and shoulder hurts the lack of sleep is worse!  I can lay in bed at 11:00 pm and try to go to sleep but end up getting back up after a half hour or so.  My husband loves sleep, he can go to bed early then wake up in the morning and go take a nap a couple hours after getting up.  It amazes me and truthfully kind of bothers me how easy this is for him because I can have 4 or  5 hours of sleep each night Monday - Thursday and come Friday do you think I can fall asleep at a decent time after a whole week of being sleep deprived?  Nope.  The only time I catch up is when I manage to sleep in on the weekends, I can't nap and can't go to bed before midnight or 1:00 am usually.

Well after reading about Bed of Nails and how it can alleviate pain or relax you and help you rest I was thrilled to be able to review it.  I have always wanted to try acupuncture but I am the biggest wuss you will ever meet when it comes to needles!  Acupressure just sounds a lot better than being poked by needles!  Acupressure is based on the same principles as Acupuncture, but uses pressure instead of needles.  It works by stimulating specific reflex points located along the lines of energy which run through the body, called meridians.  Acupressure can release oxytocin (a hormone clinically proven to calm mental anxiety and generate feelings of well-being) and endorphines (which work as "natural pain relievers").  

On Monday September 6, 2010 the release of scientific results has shown that Bed of Nails does alleviate pain.  A study was carried out by Karistad University using thrity-five patients, aged between 21 and 81, all of whom suffer from chronic muscle pain.  All used nail mats daily for three weeks and found that it alleviated the worst pain.

Sounds pretty great huh?  Well I have had my bed of nails for almost a week now and I love it.  I truly have noticed that it helps with my back and shoulder pain.  That is not the best part for me though.  The first time I laid on it I almost fell asleep (take two kids out of the equation and I am sure I would have.)  It took a second to get use to but it felt so good and so relaxing after laying there for a minute that I really think if the kids would've been in their room playing I would have been getting some much needed rest.  Every time I use the Bed of Nails not only do I feel less pain after and feel more energized after, but I feel so relaxed during that this just might be my sleeping cure too!  
 
Don't get me wrong - I am not saying this is a cure to insomnia, I am sure it is not.  However, the only things that can relax me as much and get me as close to sleep as my Bed of Nails is a good massage or a tanning bed!  
The Dirty Truth is that I love my bed of nails and I recommend this product to anyone who has any kind of constant pain or just wants to reap the energizing benefits and feel good while relaxing on it!

i learned about endorphins:

Endorphins are neurotransmitters, or peptides, and the word is short for endogenous and morphine, meaning morphine-like created by the body itself. Endorphins reduce pain and create feelings of euphoria and wellbeing.

I am so intrigued by this. I don't sleep well either. I was just involved in my sixth car wreck a few days ago and it only further aggravated injuries I have from a rollover accident 10 years ago when I was trapped under the car. I am a GFC follower as lewalk and I learned from the site: 'Bed of Nails may also help the body rid itself of toxins, so it is important to remember to drink water after using Bed of Nails.'
