Let’s talk about sleep!
When it comes to sleep, it’s all about quality, not just quantity of sleep. Many women have experienced getting a full eight hours of sleep and yet they wake up feeling like they only got two!
If you get stuck in this cycle, it can feel like no matter what you do, you can’t catch up. Sleep is also very connected to your overall health and metabolism. If you don’t get good sleep, you will not see those physical results.
When talking about sleep quality and deep sleep, I am talking about:
– Sleep cycles: these can be anywhere from 60-90 minutes. Waking up within a sleep cycle can be really disruptive to your energy when you are awake! There are tools you can use to track this so you get full cycles of sleep.
– Cortisol: Your stress levels during the day impact how you sleep at night. This includes physical and emotional stress. How do you know if your cortisol patterns are off? Through DUTCH hormone testing, which is an easy at home urine test that I will send to you.
– Melatonin: this hormone is very involved in sleep-wake cycles. Sometimes taking a little melatonin can help with sleep issues, but it isn’t the right choice for every woman!
Improving hormones and sleep is a big part of my Female Hormone & Menopause Solution, and if you are struggling with sleep, it’s probably a big reason you are not seeing results physically!
We start the program with a DUTCH hormone test, and then go through a protocol designed for your body and goals. Learn more below:
