How to have a good pillow?

2021-11-05 08:29:44

It is already a grand strategy to revitalize the northeast of China! As one of the country's ten central cities, Shenyang will usher in great development! let us wait and see!

A small pillow in life may not cause you too much attention, but it is also a culprit that causes major physical problems. Researchers in Manchester, funded by the British Fungi Research Trust, found that fungal spores are hidden in the pillows we touch every day, and they can induce some diseases.

Aspergillus is a major infectious factor leading to the death of leukemia and bone marrow transplant patients. And for adults with asthma, this fungus can also make their condition worse. The researchers sampled the materials in the pillows and found that the pillows used by people contain a lot of fungi. There are thousands of fungal spores in every gram of pillow material. On average, there are more than 1 million fungal spores in each pillow. .

Researchers found a large number of fungal spores in each pillow, and the spores in each sample were divided into 4 to 16 different types. Especially in chemical fiber pillows, researchers found more fungi. Under the microscope, the fungus in the chemical fiber pillow is especially obvious. These different types of fungi are usually found in damp walls or showers.

Professor Ashley Woodcock of the study said: “We all know that the dust microbes in the room are parasitic on the pillows, and these parasites feed on fungi. Therefore, one theory is that fungi use the house. The excrement of dust worms is a major source of nitrogen and other nutrients, so there may be a small ecosystem operating in our pillows."

Aspergillus is a very common fungus. They travel with the air and are often found in cellars, home flower pots, fertilizers, and computers. Aspergillosis caused by Aspergillus mainly appears in the lungs and sinuses, but it may also spread to other organs such as the brain, and it is becoming more common in other patients.

Patients with reduced immune function, such as transplant patients, AIDS patients and patients receiving steroid therapy can also be infected with this life-threatening Aspergillus pneumonia and sinusitis. Fortunately, the pillows in European national hospitals are wrapped in plastic film, so it is impossible to get an infection in the hospital. However, after the patient is discharged from the hospital, the pillow at home may be old and infected with fungus, then the patient will be infected. Danger.

Aspergillus can also make asthma worse, especially in adult patients who have been suffering from asthma for many years, and can cause allergic sinusitis in patients with allergies. Frequent exposure to fungus in bed may cause trouble for yourself. The fungus can enter the lung cavities caused by tuberculosis, causing your physical decline and lung bleeding. It can also cause a series of animal and plant diseases.

Dr. Jeffrey Scott, Chairman of the Fungus Research Trust, said: "The new discovery has potentially important implications for people: it is for people with allergic lung diseases and compromised immune systems, especially for those who are discharged from hospitals. Those who go home are especially important."

Professor Woodcock added: “Since patients spend a third of their time in sleep and their respiratory system is in close contact with pillows that breed a lot of fungi, these findings have important implications for patients with respiratory diseases. , Especially for patients with asthma and sinusitis.

One third of a person's life is spent in sleep. To have a good sleep, a good pillow is. The comfort of the pillow directly affects the quality of sleep and health, especially for people with cervical spondylosis.

1. The pillow is too low and the blood supply is unbalanced

Low pillows or not using pillows are not good for health. Some people who suffer from cervical spondylosis think that it is beneficial to recover without a pillow. In fact, this idea is unscientific. Without pillows, people tend to lean back too much when lying on their backs, and they are easy to open their mouths to breathe, which can lead to dry mouth, dry tongue, sore throat and snoring. If you lie on your side without pillows, the neck muscles on one side will also cause cramps and pain due to excessive stretching and fatigue, resulting in "stiff neck".

A pillow that is too low will also make the blood supply unbalanced and easily cause congestion and swelling of the nasal mucosa. The nasal mucosa is very sensitive. Once swollen, it will affect breathing and thus affect sleep. If the neck and shoulders are sore after waking up, it may also be caused by the pillow being too low or not using it.

2. Too high pillows are more likely to cause cervical spondylosis

The ancients said: Sit back and relax. Is this really the case? actually not. In clinical practice, many patients with stiff neck are caused by sleeping too high a pillow. If you sleep on a pillow that is too high, it will change the normal physical curvature of the cervical spine, causing muscle fatigue damage and ligament stretch strain, resulting in cramps, inflammation, etc., and symptoms such as neck and shoulder pain, hand numbness, dizziness and other symptoms. Clinically, high pillows are one of the common causes of stiff neck and cervical spondylosis.

In the middle-aged and elderly patients with degenerative changes in the cervical spine joints, if the head and neck position is improper when sleeping, the cervical nerve roots, spinal cord, sympathetic nerves or vertebral arteries are easily compressed or stimulated to induce cervical spine disease.

So, how do we choose the pillow that suits us?

Experts from Xingchen Health Network told us that when choosing a pillow, we should consider the height and hardness of the pillow, and choose the appropriate pillow filling according to personal preference.

How high is the pillow suitable?

When a person is standing, the cervical spine has a forward physiological curvature, so if the head is too high or too low after lying down, it will cause the neck to straighten or reflex over time. If the pillow is too high, it will not only affect sleep, but also can not maintain the normal curvature of the cervical spine, increase the burden on the cervical spine, and easily stiff neck. If the pillow is too low, the head will become congested, causing swelling and snoring of the eyelids and face.

Ancient Chinese medical books once pointed out: “The size of the height makes the side lying exactly on the shoulders, that is, lying on the back also feels comfortable.” In other words, the height of the pillow is to keep the head and torso level when lying on the back, that is, when lying on the back. A punch with the pillow high, a punch and a half when lying on the side. Generally speaking, a pillow height of 10-15 cm is more appropriate, and the specific size depends on each person's physiological curvature.

The pillow should be moderately firm

In addition to the height of the pillow, experts from Xingchen Health Network tell everyone that the hardness of the pillow should also be paid attention to. A very hard pillow has a small contact area with the head, increased pressure, and uncomfortable scalp. On the other hand, if the pillow is too soft, the neck muscles are prone to fatigue, and it is not conducive to sleep, and the head sinks during it, which affects blood circulation. Therefore, the pillow should be slightly softer without losing hardness. Pillows should have proper elasticity. If the pillows are too elastic, the head will continue to be subjected to additional elasticity, causing muscle fatigue and injury. Such as "spring pillow", "air pillow", etc., can be regarded as healthy pillows.

Choice of pillow filling

Many quality artificial fillers do not lose the heat and moisture absorption, elasticity and many other aspects of natural fillers, and some because of the characteristics of materials or additives, also have good antibacterial, mildew and disease prevention functions. Generally, latex and hollow fibers are selected as fillers, which are not easy to deform and easy to shape, which can provide suitable support and resilience for the cervical spine, and its warmth retention, bulkiness and service life have been greatly improved. Due to the difference in materials and additives, some also have health care and functions.

Compared with man-made chemical fibers, some people prefer to use pillows filled with natural materials, especially the elderly, who prefer this type of pillows, with down, buckwheat husks, rice husks, etc. as fillers first. For your own sleep quality and cervical health, it's time to choose a suitable pillow.

The relationship between pillow color and health

We all know that healthy homes are indispensable in the choice of colors, which include the main color of the room, the color of the curtains, the color of the furniture, and so on. The choice of these colors is directly related to the health of the body. What we are talking about today is what is the relationship between pillow color choice and health?

The color of the pillow has a lot to do with sleep. Psychologists and color therapists believe that color can greatly affect mood and behavior. Intuitively, we describe feelings in terms of color, passionate red, melancholic blue, or jealous green. These expressions all show how color affects our emotions.

An American’s mood towards prisoners: When the cell walls are painted pale pink, their mood becomes calmer and easier to control. This fully shows that the impact of color on people is very large.

Color has the same effect on everyone, but there is a general principle for the qualitative nature of color and how the background and tone of a specific color change a room. The soft color is in the bedroom, which means that the color of the pillow is also a soft color. The warm pink, the tender cherry red, the calming light blue, and the relaxing light green are all choices of bedroom bedding colors for rest.

1.Pink and light cherry red are the colors suitable for rest in the bedroom;

2. The dark yellow, orange and brown are too strong to be suitable for the bedroom, but light yellow can be used in the bedroom;

3. Red can accelerate blood circulation and increase blood pressure, so it should be avoided in the bedroom as much as possible.

4. The bedroom should avoid using blue as much as possible. The light blue bedroom is an intense and irritating color for male teenagers, and it is easy to make their hearts impetuous.

Pillow cleaning and maintenance

Even if we choose a comfortable pillow that is very suitable for our physical condition and sleeping habits, improper methods in the daily washing and maintenance process will also cause the pillow to deform and affect the quality of sleep. How to clean and maintain pillows?

1. Wash pillowcases and pillows too:

Some people wash pillowcases regularly, but wash the pillows. Because many people think that the pillowcase is enough to protect the pillow, as long as the pillowcase is cleaned on time, the pillow can be kept clean and hygienic. In fact, it is not the case. When we sleep, the saliva and sweat secreted by us will penetrate into the pillow, breeding bacteria, causing allergies and diseases, so we have to wash the pillow every 3 to 6 months.

2. The correct way to wash pillows by hand is as follows:

Use mild detergent for washing.

Put the pillow into the detergent solution, and keep squeezing the pillow with your hands until it is cleaned, and the excess detergent should be squeezed out.

Run water until the pillow is rinsed out, and then squeeze the excess water out.

Lay the pillow flat and dry to make it softer and fluffy.

3. Matters needing attention for machine wash pillows:

Use mild detergent for washing.

Use a large washing machine to wash two pillows at the same time. If only one can be accommodated, add a towel to wash together to equalize the water flow.
