Insomnia Webinar Causes and Beating Insomnia Naturally
Okay, well, welcome, everyone. This is Nik Hedberg, and tonight we're talking about sleep disorders. And this one of my favoritetopics, just because it's something that I encounter a lot in practice. Many, many peoplehave issues with sleep, many chronically people. And it's really one of those fundamental thingsthat it's just very difficult to help someone get healthy when they're not getting a goodnight's sleep. Sleep is when your body repairs itself; it'swhen your body releases the greatest amount of growth hormone; it's when a lot of yourneurotransmitters in the brain, like serotonin, dopamine, etc. are restored and regeneratedwhile you're sleeping. Sleeping, of course,
reduces stress, and it's definitely becominga bigger and bigger problem in today's society for a variety of reasons. So tonight we're going to talk about threedifferent types of sleep disorders that we see. People can have one of these types, orthey can have a mixed type. But we have pretty good success getting people to sleep oncewe figure out what kind of type they are and what they do well on. Then, of course, theunderlying cause. So, these are really the main things thatreally cause sleep disruption, stress is obviously going to be number one. Stress raises cortisollevels, and then cortisol, when it's high,
that will prevent you from sleeping. And thenof course caffeine, coffee, black tea, chocolate, things like that. Caffeine, of course, stimulatesthe thyroid and the adrenal glands, giving you a false sense of energy. But there isa price to pay when you do consume caffeine for energy. Sugar and of course poor dietary choices,blood sugar imbalances. And one of the things that happens when you sleep is you're actuallyin a fasting state, a very long fast, up to six to eight hours on average. And so whenyou're fasting, your body has to maintain a stable blood sugar level, and if you'rebody is not able to do that, that's mainly
regulated by the liver, the pancreas and theadrenal glands. If you're body is not able to do that, regulate blood sugar while you'reasleep, that can wake you up. We'll talk a little bit more about that later. Light in the bedroom, and that can be anything,like from a clock radio, street lights coming in, computer lights, things like that, anykind of light. Even though your eyes are closed, the brain still picks up on light in the room,and that will disrupt your sleep. Lack of exercise, chronic infections, food sensitivities.Really the big food sensitivities are going to be gluten, dairy, corn, soy, and eggs.
A magnesium deficiency, because magnesiumhas an overall calming effect on the nervous system, the brain and the muscular system.Just kind of relaxes everything. And television, watching television in bed,watching violence or traumatic movies or shows before bed, all of these things can contributeto sleep disruption. You would also want to add in there sex hormoneimbalances, especially in perimenopausal and postmenopausal women. When progesteronelevels begin to drop, that can make it more difficult to get a good night's sleep. So let's begin with the Type 1 sleep disorder.This is going to be the most common type of
sleep disorder out there. This is mainly aserotonin or melatonin deficiency. So melatonin is the hormone produced in the brain thatreally puts you to sleep. Serotonin is the precursor to melatonin. The reason that people become depleted inserotonin and melatonin is basically due to chronic inflammation. So it's matter of figuringout where the inflammation is coming from. This can be genetic, these people tend tobe the worrier, always worrying about things, and these people will typically either havedifficulty falling asleep, and or staying asleep.
Insomnia Caused by Low Levels of Testosterone
Maupin: This is episode 30 of the BioBalanceHealth podcast. I'm Kathy Maupin. pause Newcomb: And I'm Brett Newcomb and this morning we are talking about insomnia. Butwe're not talking about all kinds of insomnia, we're just talking about a specific issuewith insomnia and an approach to insomnia. If you go back and look at podcast 29, oneof the things we talked about in that podcast is that you have to be careful about globalizations.And so today we want to really focus on not being global with a global word. Because everybodyhas an impression of what insomnia means. Kathy, can you talk specifically about theangle of approach you want to use when you
talk about insomnia and why it's relevantto what you do at BioBalance Health. pause Maupin: First, there are some people who have insomnia their whole lives. We're nottalking about that. We're talking about insomnia that occurs after age 3538. In thatarea, it's part of what everyone states is part of aging. But it's really basedon the loss of a hormone. And that hormone is testosterone. It happens earlier in womenthan in men. Usually men it's in their 50's and for us it's in our 40's. But thistype of insomnia is the type that creeps up on you. You don't notice until you havehad it days in and days out that you don't
have any energy during the day. And the otherthing is you wake up unrefreshed. That's my key symptom. Not do you have insomnia doyou wake up with hot flashesé But do you wake up unrefreshedé Because it's not the hotflashes that do that, that's a lack of estrogen. It's not getting into a certain stage ofsleep that actually heals you. And insomnia over a long term can be very bad for yourhealth but also for your life. It decreases so many things like balance, and being ableto drive, and being sleepy while you're trying to drive home at night and that kindof thing. So it's very important. pause Newcomb: And then that fatigue from that
also causes irritability and crankiness. Andthat feeds into the reputation about going through menopause, that all of these changesmake you be somebody that you haven't been, and make you be somebody that's difficultto be with. pause Maupin: But they don't address the issue that this happens 10 years before menopause.This happens early on. So we don't know it's coming, no one talks about. Women'scommunication is one woman to another. That's our communication method, generally, or groupsof women talking about something. Well women go to coffee and say â€œI've got this insomniaâ€�â€œOh I've got that too.â€� â€œAnd I can't
sleep. I wake up I don't feel well.â€� Andthen the fatigue issue. So they don't remember that insomnia is causing the fatigue and theygo to the and go â€œI'm tiredâ€�. pause Newcomb: Or they don't know. pause Maupin: That's why we're talking about it.pause Newcomb: The common wisdom is that isstress and they say â€œoh it's your childrenâ€� or â€œit's your jobâ€�. Or it's tryingto be superwoman and run a house and run a business and raise children and run a husbandâ€�.So of course you're tired.
pause Maupin: Take care of a husband. pause Newcomb: Same difference, you know that. pause Maupin: Women are very stressed in their 40's. I understand that, I've been there.And the stress is from their children, and from their parents that they are taking careof. They're squeezed in and even if they have a job it's their job to be the caretaker.So that's very stressful. pause Newcomb: I have to think about important things like should we let Red China into theUnited Nations, or what to do about the debt
