A bed is a surface on which a person sleeps or rests. It may also refer to a set of bedding, such as sheets and blankets, used on the bed. Bed can also refer to the long, flat part at the back of a vehicle (like a truck or pickup) where cargo is carried: They loaded about a ton of canned goods into the bed of their truck.
A mattress is a bed’s most important component, and choosing the right one requires considering several factors. For example, if you suffer from back pain, you want to make sure the mattress is firm enough to support your spine’s natural curvature. On the other hand, you don’t want a mattress that feels hard and uncomfortable because it puts too much pressure on your shoulders and lower back.
Mattresses come in many different styles, including all-foam and memory foam, which provide a soft, contouring feel and minimize motion transfer. Innerspring mattresses, which feature individually wrapped coils, offer a firm, bouncy feel and tend to sleep cooler than all-foam models. They don’t conform as well to the body, however, and some people find them too rigid for comfortable sleep.
A hybrid like the ProAdapt offers a more balanced feel than all-foam beds, providing just the right amount of cushioning for most sleepers. It has a layer of gel-infused memory foam that helps reduce pressure points and promotes airflow, as well as a layer of wrapped 8″ coils that provides customized support and stability.
It has a premium, organic cotton cover, recycled steel coils, and CertiPUR-US foam for durability, which is good news if you’re worried about chemicals or off-gassing. Plus, the individually-wrapped coils give this bed excellent edge support – some of the best in our tests.
Binge eating disorder is a complex mental health condition with a wide range of physical and psychological effects. Fortunately, evidence-based treatments for BED, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, have been shown to be effective in helping people recover.
In mild cases of BED, episodes occur one to three times a week; moderate cases occur 4 to 7 times per week; and severe cases occur 8 or more times per week. Equip can help people struggling with BED learn skills to break the binge-restrict cycle and restore a healthy relationship with food. Treatments at Equip include individualized care, nutrition education, and body image resilience training. We teach patients to unlearn common diet beliefs and adopt a “all foods fit” approach, so they can move towards recovery. We also incorporate the full spectrum of evidence-based treatments to help people heal from the underlying causes of their eating disorder.
