Did you know??
A survey by The Ministry of Health Malaysia showed that by 2020 (hey, this year!) mental health conditions are expected to be the second biggest health problem affecting Malaysians after heart diseases. Now this is really worrying. Check out the numbers below.
Amongst Malaysian youth aged 13 to 17, one in five has depression, two in five have anxiety and one in 10 has stress. Frankly, I believe this numbers as it shows in our society, among our friends as well as on social media.
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:
- 45% of the respondents reported experiencing negative mental well-being during the MCO, with different levels of severity.
- 22% reported experiencing severe and extremely severe anxiety, with 20% and 15% of the respondents reporting severe and extremely severe depression and stress respectively.

This is where AmLife Comes In
AmLife recently engaged 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 into mental health.
Dr. Luke shared, “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 ” he elaborated.

Elizabeth shared, “Sound therapy helps relax people’s stress. This naturally reduces their blood pressure and helps the vascular system to relax the blood vessels allowing the blood to flow more easily. Each organ and cell in our body has 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,” she elaborated.
