Why is sleep so important?
Sleep is absolutely vital to health and a sense of well-being. We spend up to a third of our life asleep and for good reason. During sleep we regenerate and repair our body tissues, we secrete growth hormones for this repair. It’s also during sleep that we do a large amount of detoxification. During sleep we remove free radicals from the brain and without sleep the process is hampered and brain-aging results. Sleep deprivation can affect every organ and tissue of the body and can lead to weight gain, depression, anxiety, pain, immune suppression and accelerated aging. In a study done many years ago, college students were not allowed to sleep for 72 hours. This resulted in psychosis where the students were losing touch with reality and nearly having a nervous breakdown in some cases.
The causes can be pain like arthritis or fibromyalgia, hormone imbalances like those seen with menopause and the hot flashes that often come with it, prostate enlargement in men can often disrupt sleep, heartburn, asthma or other respiratory diseases, anxiety, depression, and excessive stress in one’s life. Sometimes it’s medications…decongestants, appetite suppressants, pain relievers with caffeine, eating too late at night, certain antidepressants. It can also be a condition called sleep apnea where the airway is blocked and one stops breathing for a short period until reduced oxygen to the brain causes the person to sit up gasping or coughing in search of a breath. Restless leg syndrome can also disrupt sleep and this can be due to a lack of iron or poor nutrition.
Recommended Nutritional Program
- Phytomulti 1 twice a day for a multivitamin multimineral foundation
- Serenagen, adrenal support for feeling “wired and tired” or can’t sleep although tired
- MyoCalm PM 2-4 before bed with small amount of juice
- Nusera, 1 chewable shortly before bed.
NOTE: Also consider doing a detox first with either the Clear Change 10-day detox program or UltraClear PLUS for 28 days, as per my “FATIGUE – CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME” handout. This will help get the necessary dietary changes in place.
