Beating those insomnia blues



Hands up those of us who spend the last 30 minutes of our waking hours winding down with our mobile phones, tablets or e-readers. Now ask yourself: have you ever had trouble sleeping?

Scientists recently discovered that the blue light from our electronic devices – such as our mobile phones, tablets and computers – can disrupt sleep patterns and inhibit the production of melatonin, the chemical in our bodies that helps us fall asleep.

That’s why we at WaveWall have created WaveWall Sleep, a blue light filter that also acts as a screen protector, for mobile phones and tablets.

Our sleek screen protector covers your device’s screen and filters out the harmful blue light, without affecting the image quality. It helps us eliminate that wide-awake feeling and allows us to go straight to sleep.

Sleep is important for all of us – particularly teenagers. It helps our brains function well and is a major factor in our general health. In fact, sleep deprivation has been linked to diabetes, obesity and depression.

Humans naturally follow a 24-hour cycle, known as the circadian rhythm. Thanks to the advent of artificial light, we can work or play at any time of the day or night. This brings many benefits but the downside is that it can put our natural rhythm out of sync.

Dr Dieter Kunz, director of sleep research at Berlin Medical School, says blue’s benefit, and its detriment, are both a matter of timing. In one experiment, he showed that exposing healthy subjects to 30 minutes of 500 lux polychromatic blue light an hour before bedtime, in their natural home environment, delayed the onset of rapid eye movement sleep by 30 minutes.

He said: “A growing body of evidence suggests that a desynchronization of circadian rhythms may play a role in various tumoral diseases, diabetes, obesity, and depression.”

Priced at less than £7.99, WaveWall Sleep is specifically designed to cut out only the harmful wavelengths of blue light.

So now you can shield your screen, your eyes and sleep from damage.

The World’s #1 Pimple Popper!



PimplePopper is the best way to effectively and hygienically get rid of pimples with minimal scarring for a quick healing time.

Made of high quality stainless steel and dual tipped to banish all sizes and types of pimples, PimplePopper works on blackheads and whiteheads, large and small.

Whether pimples are caused by stress and hormones, diet or the weather they can be painful, unsightly, and hard on the self-esteem of both teenagers and adults. Other methods of handling pimples can be expensive creams, require visits to the doctor, or make the problem worse by causing infection and swelling. Even when the pimples clear up they - and the methods used trying to get rid of them - can leave permanent scarring.

Created for those suffering with acne or just the occasional pimple, on the face or any other area of the body, PimplePopper is the easiest and most effective way to deal with pimples.

Popping pimples with the hands is clumsy and unhygienic. Bacteria from the fingers can infect the pimple and make it worse, even if using a tissue. Using fingers does more damage to the surrounding area, causing more swelling and redness and drawing more attention to the pimple – the last thing anyone wants.

PimplePopper’s stainless steel construction is easy to clean with hot water and has two different sized popping loops to fit all sizes of pimples for accurate popping with minimal irritation to the skin and quicker recovery. With less redness and swelling people can be ready to face the world sooner, with blemish-free skin. In the longer term the chances of scarring are also reduced - a big concern of pimple-sufferers everywhere.

Aiming to make managing pimples easier for everyone, Harry Gardiner, founder of PimplePopper, said he discovered PimplePopper after teenage struggles with acne. “One session showed me how it was actually possible to manage my pimples in a way that meant I didn’t always have to walk out of the front door with mountains erupting all over my face!”

After being hampered by confusing existing products and expensive shipping Harry set out to make it easier for everyone to enjoy the benefits of PimplePopper. Which is why with free domestic shipping from the USA, UK and Australia, 30-day satisfaction guarantee and one-year quality guarantee it is now easier than ever to get your hands on PimplePopper and manage pimples.

PimplePopper will change the way people all over the world deal with their pimples: reducing the risk of scarring, improving hygiene and minimising healing time.

SEASTONE OF DELRAY AWARDED BEHAVIORAL HEALTHCARE ACCREDITATION FROM THE JOINT COMMISSION


(Delray Beach – 2016) Seastone of Delray, a drug rehabilitation and alcohol treatment center for men, today announced that it has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Behavioral Health Care Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective care.

Seastone of Delray underwent a rigorous on-site survey in December 2015. During the review, compliance with behavioral healthcare standards related to several areas, including care, treatment, and services; environment of care; leadership; and screening procedures for the early detection of imminent harm was evaluated. On-site observations and interviews also were conducted.

Established in 1969, The Joint Commission’s Behavioral Health Care Accreditation program currently accredits more than 2,250 organizations for a three-year period. Accredited organizations provide treatment and services within a variety of settings across the care continuum for individuals who have mental health, addiction, eating disorder, intellectual/developmental disability, and/or child-welfare related needs.

“Joint Commission accreditation provides behavioral healthcare organizations with the processes needed to improve in a variety of areas related to the care of individuals and their families,” said Tracy Griffin Collander, LCSW, executive director, Behavioral Health Care Accreditation program, The Joint Commission. “We commend Seastone of Delray for its efforts to elevate the standard of care it provides and to instill confidence in the community it serves.”

“Seastone of Delray is pleased to receive Behavioral Health Care Accreditation from The Joint Commission, the premier health care quality improvement and accrediting body in the nation,” added Seastone’s Clinical Director, Dr. Stephen Heelan. “Staff from across the organization continue to work together to develop and implement trauma-informed, gender-responsive approaches and strategies that have the potential to improve care for those in our community.”

The Joint Commission’s behavioral health care standards are developed in consultation with healthcare experts and providers, quality improvement measurement experts, and individuals and their families. The standards are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help organizations measure, assess and improve performance.
