Mr. Lew Mun
Yee, Founder & President of AmLife said good quality sleep improves our
psychological and mental health and vice versa. Physiological health and psychological
issues are escalating globally. One in five persons has a type of mental health
issue. Therefore AmLife
stresses 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 of
holistic 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 some
insights into mental health.
Luke shared, "One needs to sleep well to improve mental health, which in turn gives
rise to a healthier body. Disrupted sleep impairs the brain plasticity and
alters the stress and inflammatory system. Clinical tests point to poor sleep
quality leading to Alzheimer's Disease besides long-term stress that will
increase high blood glucose, poor metabolic and increase in obesity thus
impacting mental stress level and affect overall health " he elaborated.
Frequency To the Rescue! Studies found that sound
frequency can affect the nervous system and can have a positive healing effect
on the mind and body. Elizabeth, "Sound therapy helps relax people's stress.
This naturally reduces their blood pressure and helps the vascular system to
relax the blood vessels allowing the blood to flow more easily. Each organ and
cell in our body has a resonant frequency. Sometimes, due to stress, toxins in
the environment, disease, etc, the organs start to vibrate at the wrong
frequency, the healing sound vibrations can help to reset them to their natural
frequency and relaxes the body," she elaborated.
the cue from Ms. Elizabeth, AmLife introduced its DeepZleep Amsonic solutions
- a regenerative sleep technology from Japan which combines Electric Potential
Therapy, Thermal Therapy and AmSonic Frequency Therapy -- all in a bedding form. AmSonic Frequency Therapy is the latest brand
new Japanese technology which harnesses the frequency of nature and spiritual
healing frequency to harmonize the body frequency and sync it with the natural
environment to enable the body to relax, relieve tension and goes into deep
slumber so your body can experience recuperative and health rejuvenation capabilities.
DeepZleep Amsonic is available in Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei and Hong Kong.
A study by the Northwestern University
School of Medicine found that low-decibel frequency therapy can help improve
deep sleep especially in the elderly. The health expert believes that the deep
sleep phase is important for memory integration and smarter thought processes.
They found that people who fell asleep
while listening to low-decibel frequency therapy scored three times higher than
those without background music in memory tests the next morning, meaning that
they literally became smarter overnight.
"Therefore, AmLife will continue its
mission and business direction to lead the world's first regenerative sleep
technology for an all-rounded physical and spiritual well-being. We hope that everyone can naturally recharge
your physical and mental health in sleep," added Lew.
