Computers Ruin Quality Sleep (video)

Schedule an Appointment

Quality sleep is an essential requirement for a healthy mind and body.  Lack of sleep has been linked to decreased memory and mental function, increased risk of chronic disease, as well as causing weight gain.  New research is showing that many of the electronic devices we use today are having a serious affect on our ability to have a good nights sleep.

From the information in the video it seems obvious that the best way to avoid melatonin suppression is to dim the lights and unwind with spending time with loved ones, or even reading from a paper book.  If you still feel the need to use your electronic devices you can look into the f.lux app that can be installed on your computer, tablet, etc.  You can also look into wearing blue light blocking glasses that will help with not only electronic devices but also the lighting in your house.  Two recommended brands of these glasses are Uvex and Solar Shield.

The subject of sleep is one of the topics that we speak about in the Think By Design seminar, for seminar schedule and online bookings click here.

Health, wellness, and optimum performance have always interested Dr. Cain. As a kid and early adult, he spent a lot of time training for the goal of being the best hockey player that he could be. This quest brought him to different levels, including junior hockey in Flin Flon Manitoba, Northern Michigan University, The Calgary Flames minor league system, and then over to Europe. As the level of competition increased, it became more apparent that even small increases in performance could make a large difference in what level a player could reach. His experience really motivated him to research optimum performance in athletes. It made sense to him that, if the brain and nervous system control the entire body, the better that this system works, the better the person works. This led Dr. Cain to his next path, Chiropractic School in Atlanta, Georgia. Along with graduating as a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Cain received a master’s degree that focused on athletes and human performance. As fun as it was to work with athletes of all different levels, he started to shift his focus more towards family practice and educating people on not only chiropractic, but also on the way they eat, move, and think. Dr. Cain has always loved the city of Calgary and all that the mountains had to offer. So in 2004, he decided to move here and start his chiropractic practice. Since that time, he has found it very rewarding to help the people of his community reach their health goals and to expand their minds to what is possible by making healthy lifestyle choices. Dr. Cain looks forward to meeting you in person and helping you achieve the level of health you deserve.
