This pandemic is changing the live of people and cause direct impact on income due to work absenteeism, lack of social interaction, face with threathening of health and life - all these take a toll on everyone’s mental health, as well as adverse physical and emotional repercussions.

One in three Malaysian adults aged 16 years and above (29.2 percent) have a mental health condition, nearly triple from 11.2 percent in 2006. Amongst Malaysian youth aged 13 to 17, one in five has depression, two in five have anxiety and one in 10 has stress.On the mental well-being of Malaysian households during MCO (Movement Control Order /Lockdown), the latest health survey conducted by Malaysian think tank The Centre with 1084 respondents in Malaysia indicated:

Research by  International Association for Suicide Prevention, USA (IASP) shows one billion people across the world are thought to have a mental or substance use disorder. And depression is one of the issue. 

Acoording Mr. Lew Mun Yee, Founder & President of AmLife, "Good quality sleep improves our psychological and mental health and vice versa. Physiological health and psychological issues are escalating globally. One in five persons has a type of mental health issue. Therefore AmLife stresses sleep education which is part of our business philosophy."

Beside that AmLife engages Ms. Elizabeth Huxtable, a certified Sound Therapist with over 30 years of holistic therapy (Globe Sound & Consciousness Institute, San Francisco, USA) and Dr. Luke Wang - a Taiwan Specialist in Psychiatric, Sleep Medicine, and Geriatrics & Dean of Rafah Sleep Clinic in Taiwan to share some insights about mental health.

I agree with Dr. Luke statement as, “One needs to sleep well to improve mental health, which in turn gives rise to a healthier body. Disrupted sleep impairs the brain plasticity and alters the stress and inflammatory system. Clinical tests point to poor sleep quality leading to Alzheimer's Disease besides long-term stress that will increase high blood glucose, poor metabolic and increase in obesity thus impacting mental stress level and affect overall health ."

Elizabeth mentions, “Sound therapy helps relax people’s stress. This naturally reduces their blood pressure and helps the vascular system relax the blood vessels allowing the blood to flow more easily. Each organ and cell in our body have a resonant frequency. Sometimes, due to stress, toxins in the environment, disease, etc, the organs start to vibrate at the wrong frequency, the healing sound vibrations can help to reset them to their natural frequency and relaxes the body.” 

Ms. Elizabeth, AmLife introduced its DeepZleep Amsonic solutions - a regenerative sleep technology from Japan which combines Electric Potential Therapy, Thermal Therapy and AmSonic Frequency Therapy – all in a bedding form. AmSonic Frequency Therapy is the latest brand new Japanese technology which harnesses the frequency of nature and spiritual healing frequency to harmonize the body frequency and sync it with the natural environment to enable the body to relax, relieve tension and goes into deep slumber so your body can experience recuperative and health rejuvenationcapabilities.

The DeepZleep Amsonic is available in Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei and Hong Kong. According to health expert, deep sleep phase is important for memory integration and smarter thought processes. People who fell asleep while listening to low-decibel frequency therapyscored three times higher than those without background music in memory tests the nextmorning, meaning that they literally became smarter overnight.

“Therefore, AmLife will continue its mission and business direction to lead the world’s first regenerative sleep technology for all-rounded physical and spiritual well-being. We hopethat everyone can naturally recharge your physical and mental health in sleep,” added Lew.
