Top 4 Things That Will Help You Sleep Better

If you’re struggling with getting quality sleep, you’re probably searching for a solution. You don’t want to feel exhausted all the time or like you don’t have the energy to do anything. Luckily there are several things you can do to improve how you sleep, and they don’t involve taking medication! Check out these top 4 things you can do to help you sleep better at night:

1. Lose Weight

Excess weight and body fat have been linked to developing obstructive sleep apnea, which is where the airway becomes partially or completely blocked during sleep. When this type of blockage occurs, you wake up more frequently, which could be why you feel fatigued even after getting the ideal number of hours of sleep. If you’re not sure where to start when it comes to losing weight, check out our weight loss program that focuses on an individualized approach through in-depth personal evaluations, goal setting, and accountability.

2. Balance Hormones

Did you know that hormones play a role in how you rest at night? If you want to sleep better, you should consider having your hormones checked. When they are out of balance, it can exacerbate sleep issues. Some hormonal issues that can create an imbalance include thyroid problems, menopause, low testosterone, pregnancy, etc. If you find yourself in the midst of a hormonal change, or you’re wondering if hormones are to blame for your sleep issues, you can come into our practice for a full evaluation. If we determine hormones are a part of the problem, we offer hormone replacement therapy as one of our functional medicine services.

3. IV Therapy

According to the National Institute of Health, more research is showing that vitamin D has a role in sleep regulation. If you are deficient in vitamin D, your risk of sleep disorders and sleep difficulties (ie: shorter sleep cycles and waking up at night) increases. To reverse this deficiency quickly, you can try IV nutrient therapy. Our blends are packed full of essential nutrients, and if you struggle with sleep, we can customize it to help you. Most of our blends include magnesium, which is calming and supports restful sleep, and vitamin B, a “helper molecule” that contributes to the production of necessary neurotransmitters that are needed for sleep. Your bloodstream is the quickest way to absorb nutrients, so by getting IV therapy, you can start feeling the effects of this therapy almost immediately!

4. Natural Sleep Supplements

More and more people are moving away from traditional medicine and medication treatments for their health issues. If you are looking for natural ways for you to sleep better, you can always try taking supplements.Some of the natural supplements we recommend for aid sleep include magnesium, valerian root, chamomile, 5HTP, vitamin B, and phosphatidylserine. Pick up some of these supplements in our online shop.

You don’t have to let your rest suffer anymore with these tips for better sleep. Through functional medicine, we can work with you to figure out why you’re struggling with getting adequate and restful sleep. Then we will work with you to devise a plan so you sleep better sooner. If you have questions about our process or treatments, please reach out to us. We would be happy to speak with you!
