Why Can’t We Sleep?
Why can’t we sleep and how can we get relief?!
We exercise, we meditate, we eat well, we keep our bedroom cool, we have a routine for bedtime and we work on stress reduction…but why can’t we sleep?
Because as our hormones fluctuate and decrease as we get older it messes with a lot of things! And sleep is near the top of that list😴
👉🏻Estrogen is needed for the production of serotonin and other neurotransmitters that promote calm and restful sleep. Lacking estrogen is also responsible for hot flashes and night sweats that disrupt sleep.
👉🏻Progesterone is our “relaxer” and is necessary for the production of GABA which is another neurotransmitters that assists with sleep. Low progesterone can cause anxiety and restlessness that interrupt good sleep.
Guess what? These two hormones can start fluctuating and decreasing as early as in your 30’s and the transition to menopause can take up to 8-10 YEARS. And by that time they are just about gone😩
Sleep deprivation can lead to a long list of psychological and physiological problems such as depression, anxiety, high blood pressure, heart disease and a weakened immune system🆘
So if you’ve tried all the things and you’re still not sleeping it is time to get some help. We do not have to just settle anymore because we are highlighting this life change instead of hiding it. Let’s say that AGAIN…highlighting these changes instead of trying to hide them so we can get the best education and the best and most specialized treatment so we can live our BEST lives.
And it’s no wonder women struggle so much during this time of life. So many healthcare providers do NOT understand perimenopause and definitely do not want to discuss hormone replacement as an option. It is important you understand ALL of your options for treatment during the season of life with someone who understands it and knows how to help👩🏻⚕️👩🏼⚕️
