Overcome insomnia, naturally.
Struggling with sleepless nights? You’re far from alone. It’s estimated that over 20% of Americans suffer from insomnia, and that rate only increases with age. According to research, over a quarter of 65-79 year olds are affected by this condition.
Insomnia is defined as the inability to fall asleep or to stay asleep, with effects from impaired mood and cognitive function, to accelerating the degenerative process of aging. Symptoms include taking a very long time to fall asleep, waking up frequently in the middle of the night, and fatigue and cognitive impairment as a result of too little sleep.
Adequate sleep – at least six hours a night – is one of the most critical factors to good health. Ignoring sleep problems can lead to increased weight gain and decreased immunity, making you more susceptible to a range of illnesses. And over time, these side effects can compound, resulting in serious, life-threatening conditions like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
To get to the root of the problem, we examine a wide variety of factors, such as your sleep-wake cycle, diet, lifestyle habits, and pain and stress levels. Making gradual lifestyle shifts can greatly help to regulate sleep patterns. Good sleep habits including exercising daily, a healthy diet, certain supplements, stress relief methods, and essential oils can all help make it easier for you to fall – and stay – asleep.
But so many of insomnia’s causes seem to lie outside our control. Arthritis, digestive problems, allergies, neurological conditions, and hot flashes can all contribute to sleeplessness. Fortunately, we take a holistic approach to understanding, diagnosing, and coming up with a plan to make sleep something you look forward to.
