THE SLEEP/WAKE CYCLE

In my previous post I explained the sleep/wake cycle and the daily dance between CORTISOL & MELATONIN. When this cycle is disrupted or out of balance, you may have difficulty getting to sleep and/or staying asleep.

SO.. WHAT CAUSES DISRUPTION OF THE SLEEP/WAKE CYCLE?

Here are some of the common everyday culprits:

  • Chronic Stress and Anxiety

  • Pain or Inflammation

  • Screen time

  • Hormone imbalances

  • Core Body Temperature Dysregulation (for e.g. due to thyroid issues)

  • Travel

  • Some medications

  • Caffeine & Alcohol

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

NATUROPATHS are well positioned to help you identify the reason you can't sleep, balance your sleep/wake cycle and get your sleep back on track.
