Sleep disorder management

A sleep disorder is the inability to sleep at night. It is also called insomnia. It regularly affects millions of people around the world and causes high-risk chronic diseases such as hypertension and kidney and reproductive function.

30-40 percent of American adults report having symptoms of insomnia in the past 12 months, and 10-15 percent of adults report chronic insomnia.

Several small studies in adults and children have suggested that exposure to light from televisions, computers, tablets, and smartphones before bedtime can affect natural melatonin levels and increase sleep time.

Getting a good night’s sleep becomes increasingly difficult as we age, but menopausal women find it especially difficult to get a good night’s sleep. Estrogen dominance in menopausal women causes insomnia and other unpleasant menopausal symptoms.

Using some progesterone cream made from natural bioidentical plant sources (at Mart-Life Detox Clinic) is helpful.

In men, the most common cause of insomnia is lack of funds or having too many and planning how to get the money or expand and protect the funds.

Another general cause of insomnia is food intolerances or allergies that make you snore and keep you awake. Eating sugary foods at bedtime and having a late dinner will keep you awake for several hours.

Eating cheese close to bedtime will keep you awake.

Medications are not the answer to insomnia and may be the cause Many over-the-counter cold and cough medications can cause insomnia.

They include antidepressants, asthma medications, pain relievers, heart medications, diuretics, and thyroid medications.

Taking over-the-counter or doctor-prescribed sleeping pills and other anti-anxiety medications will cause you to develop an unhealthy drug dependency and make you feel dizzy and tired during the day. Taking sleeping pills is rarely the answer to insomnia.

Other Common Sense Causes of Insomnia

The following are some of the most common culprits of insomnia. Caffeine is hands down the number one cause of insomnia, especially for those who can’t resist an afternoon cappuccino. Many soft drinks contain caffeine. These include many energy drinks and caffeine-laden sodas.

diet and "Energy" pills and supplements often contain caffeine, ephedra, amino acids, and other stimulants that can keep you up at night.

Too much alcohol. A glass of wine with dinner can be relaxing, but too much alcohol will keep you spinning. You may fall asleep, but wake up after a few hours and be unable to go back to sleep.

Exercise is one of the best sleep remedies. A brisk 20-minute walk or any enjoyable activity (preferably outside) sometime before 9pm is great.

An enlarged prostate. Older men with benign prostatic hypertrophy or BPH who have to get up frequently at night may get relief from a supplement of saw palmetto combined with zinc and selenium (follow package directions). 500mg magnesium capsules can support you after dinner.

What about melatonin?

Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland in the brain in response to darkness. His message to the body is “time to sleep.” As we age, we produce less melatonin, one of the main causes of sleep problems. Sleep in complete darkness to improve your melatonin production. Get shades that completely block out the street and other lights in the neighborhood. Also, get duct tape to cover the night lights on the electrical appliances in your room, or contact the electrician to remove these lights. An hour before bedtime, a melatonin tablet (an over-the-counter supplement) is beneficial. You don’t need a lot of melatonin, 0.25 to 3 mg is enough. It is widely used in the US.

A week of cleansing and body regeneration:

The body accumulates a large number of toxins from our eating habits, such as ‘swallowing’ or incompatible foods, such as lactose (90% of Africans are lactose intolerant); or a diet containing heavy metals, such as large fish and common fish, and toxins in the environment. These toxins will lead to nasal and sinus congestion, leading to shortness of breath while sleeping and therefore the inability to sleep well. They will also overload the liver, making it very stressed during its detoxification process, leading to sleep disturbances around it.

2 am Spending a week at a medical detox spa like the Mart Life Detox Clinic will help flush out toxins from the body and regenerate the body’s system, allowing you to sleep like a baby again.

Oxygen Use

Oxygen is now a powerful tool used to help insomnia. A small home oxygen ventilator such as CPAP allows you to sleep well and regenerate
