Fibro product of the week

Fibro Product of The Week
Living with Fibromyalgia and all of it's pain, fatigue and other symptoms is tough.

In an attempt to ease the burden for Fibro fighters we have asked all of those in our Fibromyalgia community to share what products have helped them most and I will be sharing them here each week at Fibro Product of the Week. I hope you find this helpful and don't forget to have a look at the other products featured.

I was so happy when I found this helpful little item. An Alaska Bear Natural Silk Sleep Mask. It really is silky smooth and not like any other eye mask I have experienced. My sister gave it to me for my birthday which might seem like a strange and practical gift but for someone who suffers from headaches and migraines it is amazing. She does too so she understands.

The thing about it is that it's so soft, actually super soft and has complete blackout.

So why use a sleep mask if you have Fibromyalgia? 
Many people with Fibro have sleep problems including difficulty getting into REM sleep.
 The hormone Melatonin regulates the day-night cycle of the human body and controls the recovery phases during the sleep. For the production of this hormone, the human body requires sufficient darkness. Lightness prevents the production of Melatonin. Even a little light caused by your digital alarm clock can be a disturbance. A good sleeping mask however will naturally help you increase melatonin levels and increase REM sleep.
