Sleep

Natural Medicine for Health pack for SleepAre you experiencing problems falling asleep and/or staying asleep?  A lot of people these days are having issues with insomnia, not getting to sleep or waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to get back to sleep.

One of the major reasons I have seen for this is abnormal cortisol levels. Cortisol is a hormone from our adrenals. And the normal pattern of cortisol in our body is for it to be highest in the morning and lowest at night. I do a lot of adrenal testing with patients to find out these levels. If cortisol is high at night, it is going to keep you awake, keep your brain churning, and you are not going to be able to shut down and go to sleep. If it is low in the morning, you will likely experience low morning energy and have difficulty waking up.  Simply said…Cortisol is our wake up hormone.

The supplements in the Natural Medicine pack for Sleep are intended to retrain your cortisol to normal patterns so you can sleep at night and wake up rested.  

Also as a side tip, another thing that can help with sleep is keeping your blood sugar stable.  If your blood sugar drops too low while asleep, you may wake up in the middle of the night because your cortisol levels have increased to compensate for low blood sugar.  And then you will not be able to get back to sleep.  You may benefit from having a small protein snack a half hour before bed.  This can help stabilize your blood sugar as you sleep through the night.
