when I started my blog I was still experiencing major sleeping issues (my whole body was getting worse). I am mentioning this, because I could sleep better after hypnotherapy. But regarding the circumstances it makes sense that this victory wouldn’t last long.
That’s beside my point, so, if you have any trouble sleeping, I encourage you to look into melatonin.
A little insight into melatonin
My (holistic) doctor urged me to use the sleep hormone melatonin to balance my sleep-wake cycle. He thinks, because of increased stress, my body doesn’t produce melatonin enough on its own. And melatonin kind of prepares to body to fall into sleep mode.
Melatonin is a natural remedy for sleep problems and also a great way for shiftworkers or people experiencing jet lags to accustom the body to changing sleep-wake cycles.
It influences the regulated release of hormones that control the metabolism. Not getting enough melatonin is associated with increased risks of obesity, diabetes, depression, heart disease, premature ageing and reduced immune function.
