Can organic mattresses help regulate temperature?
Temperature plays an important role when it comes to your sleep. And the right mattress from Natural Sleep Mattress of Atlanta can help to ensure that temperature isn’t playing the role of a villain, robbing you of valuable sleep!
Your body cools down when you sleep and then warms up when it’s time to get up and get going. So, if you get warm during the night, your body is going to think it’s time to wake up. According to the National Sleep Foundation, “The suggested bedroom temperature should be between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit for optimal sleep.” It’s important to remember, though, that that is an average. Your ideal temperature may be different.
Do you wake up at night to find you’ve kicked off the covers? Are you cold when you go to bed, but hot in the middle of the night? When was the last time you woke up and found yourself drenched in sweat?
The right mattress can help you keep your cool and get the rest you need to be at your best. At Natural Sleep Mattress of Atlanta, our consultants have the expertise to understand the needs of people who are “hot” sleepers.
Certain mattress designs and certain materials – like the latex in Pure Talalay Bliss mattresses – can help keep you from overheating. Some mattresses, on the other hand, are made from materials that capture and hold on to heat. We can help you find the options that are best for you.
For most of us, night sweats are related to the temperature. As WebMD, notes, however, in some circumstances, a medical reason might be the cause.
“Night sweats refer to excess sweating during the night,” the experts at WebMD say. “But if your bedroom is unusually hot or you are wearing too many bedclothes, you may sweat during sleep, and this is normal. True night sweats are severe hot flashes occurring at night that can drench your clothes and sheets and that are not related to an overheated environment.”
Here are some of the various causes, aside from menopause, of Night Sweats identified by WebMD:
- Infections. They’re talking some serious conditions here, the most common of which is apparently tuberculosis. Other possibilities include certain bacterial infections and abscesses.
- Medications. At the top of the list – antidepressants. “From 8% to 22% of people taking antidepressant drugs have night sweats,” WebMD reports. “Other psychiatric drugs have also been associated with night sweats.” But antidepressants aren’t the only ones. “Many other drugs can cause night sweats or flushing.”
- Hypoglycemia or low blood sugar may also cause sweating.
We’re not medical experts, so if you have questions or concerns, we hope you will speak to your doctor.
