Losing Sleep? Here’s Why You Should Start A Supplement Routine
Hi, Dr. Meredith Warner here.
In my private practice, I have the time and resources available to really sit down with my patients and help them consider lifestyle changes to support their health goals and overall well-being. I created a practice where this is possible.
Most Medicine, including both hospital-based practices and clinical practice, do not allow physicians to do this for their patients. We can and we do.
Getting 7-9 hours of quality, uninterrupted sleep a day is essential to maintaining good health. Good sleep is really one of the best anti-aging treatments possible. But, with our busy lifestyles, it can be difficult to get the rest you need.
Here are some ways you can support your goals for better sleep.
In order for your body to do its best healing work while you’re asleep, you have to give it the nutrition it needs. Most of us aren’t getting the essential vitamins and minerals we need from our diets.
Of course, if you can get what you need from your diet alone that is awesome. It is just that most of us are too busy or don’t have enough foresight, planning, and money to make that happen.
This is why I strongly believe in the benefits of supplementing to fill the gaps in our diets. My CBD Multivitamin is formulated with clinically high dosings of essential vitamins and minerals so you can rest assured you aren’t missing out on key nutrients your body needs to function optimally.
I originally developed this formula for my surgical patients; I hoped to help them heal quicker and better from surgery even with a poor diet. It turns out that this multi is beneficial for everyone, including myself!
Stress can negatively impact your sleeping patterns. It can keep you up tossing and turning at night.
Chronic stress can also affect your physical health in other ways – it can contribute to digestive issues, make you gain weight, impact immune health, and even contribute to chronic inflammation.
I often recommend my CBD Softgels for those who lead stressful lives. CBD has long been proven to be an effective anti-stress supplement.
It naturally engages your body’s own endocannabinoid system to exert a balancing effect – engaging receptors that release stress hormones to promote emotional calm. CBD allows for more parasympathetic-type calming actions in the body.
We’ve all been there – lying awake in bed, staring at the ceiling, unable to fall asleep.
You’ve done everything you can to reduce stress and prepare yourself for a good night’s sleep… but you just can’t fall asleep.
This can happen for a variety of reasons. One of the most common reasons people can’t fall asleep is because their circadian rhythms have been interrupted.
Nearly all of us stare at a glowing screen of some sort every day. Laptops, phones, and more emit blue light that can interrupt your body’s production of melatonin. As the sun goes down, your body naturally begins to produce melatonin to help you fall asleep, and stay asleep. Looking at screens can interrupt that natural process.
Here are a couple more thoughts: get a pair of blue-light blocking glasses and turn your device to the “dark screen” option!
For those struggling to stay asleep, I recommend my Tart Cherry Extract supplement. Tart cherries naturally contain melatonin, so it’s a great nighttime supplement.
It is also rich in antioxidants to help ward off damaging free radicals – so that your body can fight oxidative stress better while you’re resting.
