Why a Jetsetter Should be a BedJetter

Posted by Sarah McClutchy on

It’s no surprise to us that many frequent flyers become BedJetters. Why? Because jet lag - a disruption within the internal biological clock that results from air travel across different time zones - makes sleep a serious struggle.

Jet Lag Symptoms

According to this medical article by Dr. John P. Cunha, symptoms of jet lag can include but are not limited to:

  • fatigue
  • insomnia
  • physical and emotional symptoms
  • confusion
  • headache
  • irritability
  • difficulty concentrating
  • sweating
  • daytime sleepiness

Jet Lag & Circadian Rhythm

Cunha explains that jet lag symptoms stem from the hypothalamus — a small part of the brain that regulates Circadian Rhythm. The hypothalamus activates various body functions such as hunger, thirst, and sleep. It also regulates body temperature, blood pressure, and the level of hormones and glucose in the bloodstream.

In order to help the body tell the time of day, fibers in the optic nerve of the eye will transmit perceptions of light and darkness to a timekeeping center located within the hypothalamus. So, when the eye of an air traveler perceives dawn or dusk many hours earlier or later than usual, the hypothalamus may trigger activities that the rest of the body is not ready for, causing a traveler to experience jet lag symptoms.

BedJet for Jet Lag Relief

One way to help diminish some aspects of jet lag and get back to normal sleep routine faster is with a BedJet. With BedJet’s Biorhythm Sleep Technology, you can hack into your body’s pre-programmed circadian biorhythms and change what your body thinks it should be doing while you’re in bed.

With a BedJet, you can make hourly climate control adjustments in your bed to ensure that you get to sleep faster and stay asleep longer. If you’re experiencing night sweats or waking up sweaty due to jet lag, you can program BedJet cooling to keep you cool with a quiet stream of cooling air.

So, if you’re a jetsetter that struggles with the side effects of jet lag, become a BedJetter for an easier transition back to sleep in your home time zone.

How did I live without this?

I have watched my wife suffer with menopause hot flashes for years. Finally I started looking at what I could buy to help her at night. This system is so awesome I am going to order one for my side of the bed. Works great on cool and now that we are in winter the warming is also incredible!
