What factors caused people can’t fall asleep?


More and more studies have shown that insomnia is closely related to anxiety, depression, and other emotional disorders, and about 30%-50% of insomnia patients have varying degrees of anxiety and depression symptoms. Conversely, mood disorders such as depression and anxiety can disrupt sleep, causing and aggravating insomnia. Therefore, in most cases, mood disorders and insomnia are mutually causal.

Studies have found that insomnia and mood disorders have very similar physiological manifestations, both manifested in the disturbance of neurotransmitters that transmit nerve signals in the brain under various stressors.

If the neurotransmitters such as cortisol, serotonin, dopamine, acetylcholine, glutamate, and gamma-aminobutyric acid are in a moderate balance, and the excitation and inhibition effects are moderate, the central nervous system is functioning normally, and people are emotionally stable and thinking. Active, mentally healthy; conversely, the normal functioning of the brain will deviate, and various emotional and psychological diseases will follow.


Cortisol and insomnia

Cortisol is the most important stress-regulating hormone in the body secreted by the adrenal cortex, also known as the “stress hormone”. When people cope with stress, the hormone is secreted increased, manifested by increased blood pressure and blood sugar, increased heart rate, increased appetite, and decreased need for sleep. Appropriate levels of the cortisol hormone will give people enough energy and physical strength to cope with daily life, but if the body is chronically stressed for a long time, cortisol will remain high for a long time, which will eventually lead to a series of health problems.

Serotonin and insomnia

Serotonin is a monoamine neurotransmitter, which exists in the human central nervous system, gastrointestinal tract, and platelets. More and more studies have confirmed that serotonin has a regulatory effect on other neurotransmitters and plays an important role in regulating body temperature, sleep, appetite, mood, and cognitive memory. Serotonin production and dysfunction are the cause of many neuropsychiatric diseases (such as depression, schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease, migraine, etc.).


Glutamate, GABA, and Insomnia

Studies have found that excessive glutamate in the body can lead to mood swings, restlessness, insomnia, and periodic and paroxysmal diseases such as migraine. If these symptoms are not improved, they may even develop into neurological or psychiatric diseases. Similarly, symptoms of reduced gamma-aminobutyric acid imbalance include mood disorders such as anxiety, depression, excessive worry, etc., because when there are insufficient inhibitory calming neurotransmitters in the body, the body is in a state of excitement, and inevitably affects sleep.

ELITEMED Mini3 CES Sleep Aid Device, A Solution for Your Insomnia


The CES transcranial microcurrent stimulation technology used by the ELITEMED Mini3 Sleep Aid Device has been used in Europe and the United States to improve insomnia for more than 50 years. The generated biphasic combined waveform microcurrent changes abnormal brain waves in the brain and regulates brain secretions Neurotransmitters and hormones (such as serotonin, glutamate, gamma-aminobutyric acid, etc.) that are closely related to anxiety, depression, insomnia, and other diseases, so as to achieve the purpose of simultaneously relieving anxiety and depression and improving sleep. It is widely used by professional medical institutions at home and abroad, and it has also been proved by many scientific researchers to be the safest, most effective, and independent sleep aid technology so far.

The CES Sleep Aid Device Mini3 uses transcranial microcurrent stimulation technology, which is a pure physical improvement technology and does not cause side effects to the body without gastrointestinal absorption or metabolism by the liver and kidneys. At the same time, the effect will continue to accumulate with gradual use, and it can be stopped when sleep and mood are improved, without the formation of dependence and addiction. Completely solve sleep problems and emotional disturbances from the root.
