Getting your zzzz’s

Sleep is optimal to our health. During sleep, the body is in an anabolic state - basically when in energy conservation, tissue repair and growth take over. The body temperature falls, growth hormone is secreted and immune cell production is increased - ahh – why we get that cold or flu when we’ve been burning the candle too much! While there are numerous and varied reasons for sleep disturbances, a common denominator is physical, emotional or mental stress to the nervous system.

By following some of my tips for sleep hygiene & lifestyle changes as well as certain herbs and nutraceuticals - I hope it helps you to get some extra healing zzzzzzs in!
