'Then you are in survival mode. Your sympathetic nervous system is working at top speed. I guess you feel knackered middle of the afternoon, which means that your body is acting to force epinephrine, norepinephrine, cortisol'.

That is the description that Dr  Nerina Ramlakhan -expert in energy management and techniques sleeping Nightingale Hospital in London-ago dealign addicted to technology.

But how addiction works? Are there people more prone to it? And more importantly, how it can be cured of this 'disease'?

The patient profile


Perfectionists who want to control everything and often sleeping clenched teeth profile addict patient basic features that recur are.

'They have the personality type A: They are self-motivated, competitive, aggressive people, feel the urgent need to do things,' explained Ramlakhan.

'People with this type find it extremely difficult to disconnect, can not relax, and if they do they feel quickly exhausted.'

'Even when they watch television have multiple screens. They have a level of hyperactivity product of fear of not being in control,' says the doctor.

In fact, for her the individual feels a kind of gratification when he is able to turn the page continuously on the cell phone, which comes to equate the sensation eat what we like, do what entertains us or even have sex.

And while many pride themselves on being multitasking, this, according to psychologist Catherine Steiner-Adair, is a dangerous game, especially for children.

'We are seeing a decline in memory. They are not developing the part of the brain is a muscle that needs exercise to focus on one thing,' says the psychologist.

The symptoms


To Ramlakhan, in these case people acquire the classic sufferer cycle fatigue pattern.

In that situation it can only be triggered by continuous demands of dopamine, a neurohormone released by the hypothalamus that motivates, increases heart rate, willingness to process information, mood or sleep.

In other words, the technology addiction becomes addicted to dopamine.

'Patients go to bed but can not sleep, and when they do wake up tired. People are starting to say they simply can not" turn off 'the brain,' says the doctor.

When that happens they say that the person is 'fused' to both be connected to your devices (work or leisure).

The recipe


Ramlakhan doctor for the cure must be addressed from different angles, and it advises four basic actions to combat addiction.

1. Implement 'electronic sunsets' when it's time to sleep, stay away from all technological devices, and for example, take a book (but not one address).
 2. Keep your watch away overnight, so you can not know the time and the passage of time does not cause anxiety. Do not use your smartphone as a wake-up alarm.
 3. Recharge with energy healthy: eat breakfast or eat anything for at least the first half hour after waking up and before taking anything with caffeine.
 4. Stay hydrated: drink at least two liters of water a day.
 


How to prevent


A recent study by the London School of Economics suggests that in schools where children are prohibited from having cell phones, academic results have increased by more than 6%. The philosophy of Steiner-Waldorf school openly discourages the use of devices to children under 12 years.

The NICE organization dedicated to safeguarding healthy habits of the population in the UK, has guidelines that limited to two hours per day time devices against adults and children, to increase physical activity.

Although the main problem, curiously, is for the generation that remembers what life was like before the Internet, because it is irresistibly attracted by technology, says Ramlakhan.

She says her 11-year-old daughter is bored of  Facebook, while her 4 does not hesitate in the least to the time to turn off all devices in the home.

'New generations will be wiser. We are still under shock technology, we are still excited,' says the doctor.


Until that happens, the battle must give it one day at a time, catching up on sleep and physical activity.
