Theyear looks grim with the Covid-19 pandemic. Faced with threatening realities ofhealth and life, loss of jobs, lack of social interactions, all these take atoll on everyone's mental health, as well as adverse physical and emotionalrepercussions.


Asurvey by The Ministry of Health Malaysia showed that by 2020, mental healthconditions are expected to be the second biggest health problem affectingMalaysians after heart diseases. One in three Malaysian adults aged 16 yearsand above (29.2 percent) have a mental health condition, nearly triple from11.2 percent in 2006.  Amongst Malaysianyouth aged 13 to 17, one in five has depression, two in five have anxiety andone in 10 has stress.


Onthe mental well-being of Malaysian households during MCO (Movement ControlOrder / Lockdown), the latest health survey conducted by Malaysian think tankThe Centre with 1084 respondents in Malaysia indicated:

  • 45%of the respondents reported experiencing negative mental well-being during theMCO, with different levels of severity.
  • 22%reported experiencing severe and extremely severe anxiety, with 20% and 15% ofthe respondents reporting severe and extremely severe depression and stressrespectively.
  • Womenand those below the age of 35, reported experiencing higher levels of negativeemotions. 18-26% of women stated that they experienced severe and extremelysevere depression, anxiety, and stress.


Abroad, according to the International Associationfor Suicide Prevention, USA (IASP), one billion people across the world arethought to have a mental or substance use disorder and anyone, anywhere, can beaffected. Depression alone is on track to be the leading disease burden in thenext 10 years.


Mr. Lew MunYee, Founder & President of AmLife said good quality sleep improves ourpsychological and mental health and vice versa. Physiological health and psychologicalissues are escalating globally. One in five persons has a type of mental healthissue. Therefore AmLifestresses sleep education which is part of our business philosophy," explained Lew.


AmLife has engaged Ms.Elizabeth Huxtable, a certified Sound Therapist with over 30 years ofholistic therapy (Globe Sound & Consciousness Institute, San Francisco,USA) and Dr. Luke Wang - a Taiwan Specialist in Psychiatric, Sleep Medicine,and Geriatrics & Dean of Rafah Sleep Clinic in Taiwan to share someinsights into mental health.


Dr.Luke shared, "One needs to sleep well to improve mental health, which in turn givesrise to a healthier body. Disrupted sleep impairs the brain plasticity andalters the stress and inflammatory system. Clinical tests point to poor sleepquality leading to Alzheimer's Disease besides long-term stress that willincrease high blood glucose, poor metabolic and increase in obesity thusimpacting mental stress level and affect overall health " he elaborated.


Frequency To the Rescue! Studies found that soundfrequency can affect the nervous system and can have a positive healing effecton the mind and body. Elizabeth, "Sound therapy helps relax people's stress.This naturally reduces their blood pressure and helps the vascular system torelax the blood vessels allowing the blood to flow more easily. Each organ andcell in our body has a resonant frequency. Sometimes, due to stress, toxins inthe environment, disease, etc, the organs start to vibrate at the wrongfrequency, the healing sound vibrations can help to reset them to their naturalfrequency and relaxes the body," she elaborated.


Takingthe cue from Ms. Elizabeth, AmLife introduced its DeepZleep Amsonic solutions- a regenerative sleep technology from Japan which combines Electric PotentialTherapy, Thermal Therapy and AmSonic Frequency Therapy -- all in a bedding form.  AmSonic Frequency Therapy is the latest brandnew Japanese technology which harnesses the frequency of nature and spiritualhealing frequency to harmonize the body frequency and sync it with the naturalenvironment to enable the body to relax, relieve tension and goes into deepslumber so your body can experience recuperative and health rejuvenation capabilities.


TheDeepZleep Amsonic is available in Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei and Hong Kong.


A study by the Northwestern UniversitySchool of Medicine found that low-decibel frequency therapy can help improvedeep sleep especially in the elderly. The health expert believes that the deepsleep phase is important for memory integration and smarter thought processes.


They found that people who fell asleepwhile listening to low-decibel frequency therapy scored three times higher thanthose without background music in memory tests the next morning, meaning thatthey literally became smarter overnight.


"Therefore, AmLife will continue itsmission and business direction to lead the world's first regenerative sleeptechnology for an all-rounded physical and spiritual well-being.  We hope that everyone can naturally rechargeyour physical and mental health in sleep," added Lew.
