Sleep problems can wreak havoc in our daily functioning

People experience sleep problems in different ways, such as:

  • Do you have problems getting to sleep or staying asleep?
  • Do you wake up in the early hours of the morning and struggle to fall back to sleep?
  • Or do you find you simply can’t switch off and get to sleep in the first place?

Common causes include:

Sleep problems are increasingly common and affect many of us at some time or other during our lives. For about 9% of people, sleep issues can become a chronic condition which in turn can have dramatic consequences across a person’s physical and psychological health.

Isolating the cause is a key step. From there, Naturopathpathic treatment can be used to help correct predisposing factors.

There are also things you can do to help promote a good night’s sleep:

What you can do

  • Avoid caffeine entirely, as its effects can last for up to 24 hours.
  • Ensure you have proper nutrition, as deficiencies in minerals and trace elements can contribute to insomnia.
  • Control blood sugar swings by consuming a small snack before bed, which can help regulate adrenaline levels.
  • Create a sleep-friendly environment by keeping your sleeping area clean, tidy, and free of noise pollution.
  • Turn off Wi-Fi and switch your mobile device to airplane mode during the night.
  • Establish a consistent wake-up time, even if you feel tired, to maintain your natural body clock.
  • Try chamomile tea, which may promote relaxation.
  • Avoid foods high in processed sugar like chocolates, cakes, ice cream, and soft drinks.
