A new head cooling cap treatment for insomnia was recently announced at a sleep conference in Minnesota. Fitness author, Rusty Moore, believes that this will aid in weight loss as well.
Online PR News – 15-June-2011 – – A new breakthrough treatment for insomnia was released at a sleep conference on Monday June 13th in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This treatment involves wearing a water cooled cap to bed, which is a safe non-pharmaceutical solution to a common problem.
Besides assisting people in getting better sleep, this may also help with weight loss. Here is what fitness author, Rusty Moore has to say on the subject.
"Sleep loss results in the release of Cortisol, which tends to make people hungry even after their nutritional needs are met. Poor sleep also makes the body release less HGH, the body's natural fat burning hormone. A lack of sleep makes losing weight a serious uphill battle".
According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, about 10 percent of adults suffer from Chronic Insomnia. A study published in 2006 in the Journal of Clinical Sleep, reported that increased metabolism in the frontal cortex is a large contributor to insomnia. The cooling cap reduces the metabolism and activity in the frontal cortex allowing people with insomnia to get a full night's sleep.
Rusty Moore believes that this will also make a difference in obesity rates.
"Over the past 20 years there has been a dramatic increase in obesity in the United States. I don't think this cooling cap will eliminate this problem, but we should look at any improvements as a major win."
Rusty Moore is a fitness author who specializes in reaching low body fat levels and getting washboard abs.
