TREAT THE CAUSE!
A good night's sleep is essential for optimal body functioning; when we sleep, the body undergoes a number of different processes that are necessary for preserving life. It is during this time that the body repairs itself from the previous days' stressors and prepares itself for the following day. A healthy night's sleep helps to prevent cancer, reduce stress levels, enhance weight loss, decrease inflammatory processes throughout your body, improve your level of alertness, memory and concentration and increase your IQ.
If you have difficulty falling or staying asleep, you likely suffer from sleep deprivation. Sleep deprivation impairs the immune system by increasing molecules responsible for inflammation. Whole-body inflammation leads to changes in essential biochemical processes and can result in heart disease, diabetes and even neurological conditions. Sleep deprivation also leads to a decrease in body temperature further reducing immune functioning and simultaneously affecting hormone levels. Insomnia can not only affect your quality of life today but can seriously impact your health in the future.
There are a number of causes for insomnia ranging from poor sleep hygiene to anxiety or depression to chronic pain. In order to effectively and successfully manage your sleep, it is important to determine the true cause. I am pleased to offer the Sleep Wellness Program, a comprehensive, individually designed program for anyone who suffers from sleep deprivation. During this program, you will explore and address the underlying physical and mental/emotional cause(s) for your sleep concerns, learn several simple and effective sleep management strategies, and incorporate nutrition, botanical medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture and homeopathy into your treatment. Laboratory testing may be requested on an individual basis.
