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