Is It Healthy To Sleep Only On Thin Pads?
Hello doctor, my mother used to say that if you sleep on a cold floor or only use a thin base so the cold is still translucent, it is not healthy. Is that right? Thank you very much in advance
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We understand the concern you feel.
Sleeping on a bare floor is not something that is recommended for most people's health. There are several reasons behind this, including:
Prone to trigger a recurrence of allergic reactions in people with a history of dust allergy and a cold environment, related to floors that may be dirty and dusty
Risk of causing respiratory tract infections because on the floor there can be many germs
Cold conditions increase the risk of disease due to viruses, such as colds (common cold) which might be known to the layman as "colds"
Coldness of the floor can cause joint pain, aches, and headaches
Risk of entry of foreign objects in the form of insects into the nose / ears in the form of insects that may roam the floor
Indeed, in some people, there are those who are advised to sleep on hard beds to improve posture. However, what is meant is not a floor without a base / only a thin mat. This also requires consultation with a doctor first.
Therefore, you are advised to sleep in a bed that supports the body's ergonomic position when resting. Do not hesitate to consult a doctor if you have problems related to sleep. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
