ZzzzZzz. To many of us, this is a welcome sight. Who feels absolutely rejuvenated after a good night’s rest? Nothing is more satisfying that falling asleep quickly and waking up refreshed in the morning. How many of us have this experience on a regular basis? If you are like 57% of Americans, it’s probably not as often as you would like.
Obviously sleep is important, but have you ever wondered why that is? Did you know that when you are sleeping, your body is actually repairing itself? Have you ever come across someone who had a bad injury and is now in the hospital recovering? They are asleep for up to 18 hours a day! Did you know that your mood is also directly related to how well you sleep? Research shows that people who get 7 – 8 hours of sleep a night have less of the stress hormone cortisol, the one that causes you to gain weight. Also, those who get between 7 – 8 hours a night actually have a better balance of dopamine, the feel good hormone, the one those suffering from depression have out of balance.
There are many reasons why you may not be getting the sleep you need each night. Perhaps you ate a big meal that night and are having indigestion keeping you up. Or maybe you are going through a ton of stress in your personal life keeping you up. But did you know that there is often an underlying condition which is predisposing you to less sleep? If you have never had a specific test done of this system, you may be suffering needlessly. Often times, insomnia is directly related to a problem within this system.
The system I am talking about is called the Nervous System. It is responsible for regulating all the functions of your body. It is what keeps our hearts beating, feet moving, and ideas flowing. It is also responsible for your sleep / wake cycles and regulating sleep apnea. If you have been suffering from non-restful sleep and are looking for answers, schedule a complimentary consultation to have your nervous system checked. Remember, your current state of health does NOT dictate your future. If you have ever been told that you just have to live with it, think again. There are answers available to you, call or email us TODAY to learn more.
