Insomnia is more than just a sleepless night. A disrupted sleeping schedule can sometimes occur based on our circumstances. Stress, worries, agitation — these can all contribute to missed sleep. However, when your sleepless nights become chronic, a serious examination of your habits may be necessary. MV Integrative believes in a comprehensive approach to treatment. Our programs are designed to work with patients and lead them to an optimal state of wellness. If you think you may have insomnia, our treatment options may be right for you.
There are two types of insomnia: primary and secondary. Primary is sleeplessness that is not associated with another health concern. It may be chronic or acute, but in either case it is often caused by a disruption in your life. Secondary is sleeplessness related to an underlying condition. Disorders like depression, asthma, and even cancer can cause secondary insomnia. This is why it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible.
Insomnia Treatment Options
Insomnia is a common occurrence among women undergoing menopause. As estrogen and progesterone levels decrease, several lifestyle changes (particularly changes in sleep) can be triggered. This is because progesterone is a sleep-inducing hormone. A lack of hormonal balance can be tackled through individualized hormone replacement therapy.
Another cause of insomnia may be poor nutrition. Studies have shown that what you eat can significantly affect your sleeping habits. Eating fried foods can keep you up at night, while choosing complex carb alternatives may promote restfulness. Insomnia can be a symptom of a deficiency in magnesium or vitamin B6. Our functional health experts are ready to provide you with tailored nutrition guides to improve your bedtime routine.
