Sleep is a foundation of health, and it can be surprisingly hard to come by sometimes. Whether you have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or sleeping too much, integrative healthcare can help. Stress is a big factor behind sleep issues. It produces adrenaline, which leaves us feeling wired. It can be hard to make the shift away from stress mode into rest mode. Integrative healthcare is able to work with the nervous system to make those shifts. We can help change the stress response to allow for better, more balanced sleep. Sleep issues can also be caused by big emotions. When we are having big feelings, it can be hard to turn our brains off enough to have a good night’s sleep. Or, we can struggle with the reverse and sleep too much in order to escape the feelings as much as possible. Integrative healthcare helps us process emotional information through the body and mind so we can release down into a more restful state. Pain can also cause sleep issues. When we have pain alarms going off in our body, it can be very hard to feel comfortable enough to have a good night’s sleep. Integrative healthcare helps turn down the volume of pain signals, even as it treats the source of the pain itself. Nutrition can also play a big role in our ability to sleep well. Not only can caffeine affect our sleep, but so can a variety of nutritional factors. Nutritional imbalances can contribute to things like restless legs, racing thoughts, and crashing moods. Integrative healthcare can help balance out how our body uses its nutrient intake, and can help fine tune what we eat in order to support healthy sleep. Healthy sleep is sleep that leaves us feeling rested and refreshed. Integrative healthcare is able to directly work with the imbalances that contribute to sleep issues. This helps you not only get a good night’s sleep, but also enables your body to naturally reset and repair itself.
