“Pregnant? New Baby? Need Sleep!” is the Title of Dr. Richard Hansler’s Latest Book
Date:9/25/2013

University Heights, OH (PRWEB) September 25, 2013

Very few women are aware that exposing the eyes to ordinary light when awakened during the night, shuts down the production of melatonin by the pineal gland. This lack of melatonin makes it difficult to fall asleep again after a nighttime awakening. This isn’t of much consequence for most people, but can be devastating for a new mother who may be getting up several times each night. In addition to stopping the flow of melatonin, the light also resets the internal or circadian clock. This is the clock the determines when melatonin will start flowing in the evening. If it is reset, it may mean the melatonin won’t be starting its flow at the normal time. This contributes to the difficulty in falling asleep and staying asleep. The lack of sleep and the disruption of the circadian cycle can, if continued for night after night, result in depression. Fortunately, there is an easy way to avoid this situation.

It was discovered in 2001 that not all light suppresses melatonin. It is mostly the blue rays in ordinary white light that suppress melatonin and reset the circadian clock. In 2005, physicists at John Carroll University developed light bulbs that don’t emit the damaging blue rays. They also developed eyeglasses that block blue light and filters for TV and computer screens. These products are available on a website https://www.lowbluelights.com that is operated by Photonic Developments LLC. By having these special light bulbs in the nursery or by the mother wearing glasses that eliminate blue light, the problem of melatonin suppression and clock resetting are solved. Dr. Hansler’s book “Pregnant? New Baby? Need Sleep!” provides details on how this strategy to stay well rested and happy, may be deployed and also provides the science backing up this approach.

Dr. Hansler, who directs the group at John Carroll University, has written two other books, “Great Sleep! Reduced Cancer!” and “Heroes of Cancer Prevention Research” available on the website or from Amazon as paperback or Kindle books. His first book “Prepare to Bail Out” (Amazon) describes how he avoided capture by the Germans and joined the Polish Underground after bailing out from a B17 in WWII. Dr. Hansler’s motive for writing the new book is summed up in a sentence near the end of the book as follows: “If just one couple can be spared the despair of postpartum depression, the effort to provide safe light bulbs and glasses that block blue light was well worth it.”
