May 10, 2019

Lack of sleep is linked to increased risk of heart attack, cancer, poor healing, autoimmune diseases, mental disorders and overall reduced quality and length of life. Lean why you are not sleeping or why you sleep long hours but do not feel restored. Hormones like cortisol from the adrenal glands, thyroid hormone and insulin all play a role in poor sleep quality and sleeping pills do not correct underlying hormonal sleep problems. Pain, chronic inflammation, a high-glycemic index foods, stress, depression and anxiety are just some of the factors that can cause and or result from sleep disturbances. Join Dr. Michael Wald, The Blooddetective, as he explores practical steps that you can take to start sleeping again. The role of nutritional supplements such as GABA (gamma amino butyric acid), melatonin and tryptophane, among others, will be discussed.
