Sleep issues can lead to fatigue, irritability, poor memory and concentration, depression, weight gain and many chronic health conditions including cancer. To avoid these, you need to get good quality and quantity sleep regularly!
Investigating and resolving sleep issues is a major interest of mine, after having personal difficulties with this in the past, and being able to resolve them with simple but non-standard methods! I tried many of the usual techniques, which didn't work for me because they didn't address the causes.
There are 3 main issues people have regarding sleep:
- Sleep onset - having difficulty initially getting to sleep
- Sleep maintenance - difficulty staying asleep, or waking at similar times in the night and not easily being able to get back to sleep again
- Interrupted sleep - this can be related to sleep maintenance too, but can be caused from other issues such as bladder problems and the need to visit the bathroom during the night, and having young children that need to be breastfed or looked after when sick or needing attention.
Some of the most common causes to sleep problems are from stress, weight issues, lifestyle factors (alcohol, caffeine, lack of exercise or sun exposure and more), and eating the wrong types of foods during the day and especially at dinner, or many other possible causes.
If you are having any of these issues, I'd love to be able to help to sleep better and to improve your health. I investigate all the possible causes of poor sleep in you, then I make some recommendations which can include some dietary changes, lifestyle improvements, environmental changes, supplements or many other techniques to resolve the causes.
Getting a good quality sleep can then make a huge improvement on your health!
