Why You May Need Help Falling Asleep

It’s nighttime, you’re in your bed and trying to fall asleep. You toss and turn trying to get comfortable or maybe your mind is running wild and keeping you awake. If this sounds like you then you may need help falling asleep. At D’Brant Infinite Wellness we are here to assist in reducing your symptoms and help provide you ways to get the rest you need. No tricks, just simple steps that we guarantee will help you fall asleep.

For women, a reason you may need help falling asleep is that you are having hormone fluctuations. When hormones like estrogen and progesterone fluctuate, this can destroy your sleep schedule. As your estrogen and progesterone levels begin to decline, you may be left with nights of restless sleep or even develop insomnia. It is important to note that insomnia is not a sure effect of low estrogen levels and can be a problem for both men and women.

Another reason for needing help falling asleep is your adrenal health. Your adrenal glands are in charge of balancing your hormones. When suffering from adrenal fatigue, your body can build up more energy as the day goes on. This can leave you hyper alert and wide awake when you are trying to get ready for bed.  That is why some people report feeling “tired but wired”.

For men, testosterone can be a major factor for why you need help falling asleep. As men get older, they begin to steadily drop in testosterone levels. It is believed that the decline of testosterone is linked to trouble sleeping.

Of course these are only possibilities and everyone is different.
