Tired of being Tired
We are part of a culture that prides itself on productivity. Sleep is considered a nuisance that gets in the way of work, family, social media, and exercise. We make up for this lack of sleep by eating unhealthy foods and drinks that give us a quick burst of energy. We use sugar, refined carbs, caffeine and other stimulants we hope will give us more energy, but these cause negative side effects.
If you still have trouble sleeping, consider having blood work to look for problems that can interfere with sleep, including food sensitivities, thyroid problems, menopause, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, heavy metal toxicity, stress and depression.
Consider your Habits
Unhealthy day time habits lead to unhealthy night time habits. If you are wide awake at 1A.M.-3 A.M., consider your habits. Functional medicine is crucial for getting sleep habits back on track. You may need to cut out certain foods and make sure to add more natural foods. There may be toxins in your body that are preventing your body from getting the proper amount of sleep.
When you visit a traditional medicine doctor, a lot of the times they will prescribe something that will only mask the problem temporarily. This will not fix the problem, and your body may build up immunity to the prescription as well as depend on the medicine. This is extremely unhealthy for you.
