RADIO HEALTH PEARL #405 …brought to you by the Gesundheit! Nutrition Center.

Sleep disorders are a much bigger issue than people would like to admit.

NOT getting enough sleep at night can affect your quality of life during the day, as well as your work-performance.

Besides that, it can have a chronic effect on your adrenal glands, your cortisol-/stress levels, and on your thyroid hormones.

NOT getting enough sleep may consist of different parts:

Maybe you cannot FALL asleep; and is that because you are worried about stuff, or because you are not tired? Have you been eating or exercising late?

Maybe you cannot STAY asleep; is that because you have a sleep apnea, or are you lacking minerals? Is it because you are having hot flashes or other hormonal challenges?

Seeing a professional at the Sleep-Center, and having you monitored during an overnight visit, could provide some important answers and solutions. We’re talking here about a third of your lifetime, which can easily affect the other two-thirds.

Others may want to try specific dietary supplements for sleep-irregularities that are available … at the Gesundheit! Nutrition Center on North 19th Avenue.

Always consult a physician before beginning any medical regimen
