how cortisol levels affect sleep

It’s Fall and most people look forward to this time of the year when we gain an hour of sleep; after all, sleep is how our bodies heal and replenish. The problem is that many people can’t take advantage of this extra sleep due to how common sleep issues are nowadays. There are many reasons why people can’t sleep, and if we are not testing then we are guessing the cause.

“The number one reason we see is that cortisol levels are out of balance with the levels being too high at night and too low in the morning.”

However, there are very common reasons that are seen across the board. The number one reason we see is that cortisol levels are out of balance with the levels being too high at night and too low in the morning. This will cause challenges for people when trying to fall asleep and stay asleep, leading for morning fatigue of all degrees. This imbalance of cortisol is most often due to daily stress on top of eating high amounts of sugar and foods we are sensitive to. Often times, this is also accompanied with stressors the body is trying to fight off like subclinical infections and environmental toxins to name a couple.

We have been gifted with the use of the muscle testing to find out what your body’s preference is for balancing your cortisol and getting you back to sleeping. So come on in and take advantage of finding the cause for why you are not sleeping or getting restful sleep.

Helping you rest easy.
