How to fix this most obvious reason for fatigue in just a few days

The most essential piece to having energy is found in this one habit. Unfortunately a large percentage of the population is deprived of it, either by choice, by disturbance or dysfunction. It’s deprivation is used to torture prisoners of war. Its dysfunction tortures the people who have it. Considered an independent risk factor for cancer in Europe,

Sleep deprivation can cause a list of problems a mile long. The most obvious one is fatigue. For most people who are tired because they don’t get enough sleep, it’s not by choice. It’s because they just can’t sleep. No matter how long they lay in bed.  Or there is someone stopping them from getting a good night’s sleep. It’s a common code I use when ordering labs.

If this is a problem  – what do you do? You’d be surprised at how many people have disturbed sleep because of their pets. But what about when there is no one disturbing you? And you just can’t fall asleep, stay asleep or both? What do you do? Many people take sleep medications. The problem with drugs like Ambien, is that over time they cause problems. One of which is contributing to the development of Alzheimers. This is because they stop you from getting deep sleep. It is during deep sleep that our brains take a shower. They clean themselves off. When deep sleep is prevented, that shower does not happen and our brains eventually form called amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles – and stop our brains from functioning properly.

So we always want to get good sleep as naturally as possible. In order to get a good night’s sleep, make sure these things are in place: 

  • Stress is handled
  • Blood sugar is stable
  • Night sweats are non-existent – these can be reduced or eliminated when blood sugar is stable and stress is handled
  • Screens are shut off at least an hour before bed
  • Nutritional deficiencies are handled
  • Thyroid is healthy

Make sure you have all these things checked off – your sleep will be on its way to recovery.  And so will your energy.
