Ensuring a Restful Night’s Sleep

Denver stem cell treatment

Sometimes it’s difficult to get a good and restful sleep, and the result is not great, neither for you nor for those with whom you interact in the morning.

Sleep and awakening processes are gradual, not sudden. The sleep passes through several stages and when some of these stages are interrupted, your night will not feel like restful. Most adults need 7-9 hours of sleep, to function properly the next day. These hours also contribute to the physical and mental health.

What habits stand in the way of a restful night?

If you eat a good meal before bedtime, the esophagus will be under pressure and will cause a burning sensation in the stomach, when you lie down. Have your dinner at least 2-3 hours before bedtime and make it light.

Alcohol is deceiving; it can make you feel sleepy, but if you consume too much, it will negatively affect your sleep. Metabolization of the alcohol in sleep leads to frequent awakenings, nightmares, headaches and sweating, especially in the second half of the night. Ideally, you should avoid drinking alcohol in the evening.

Also, if a strong light source is near you before you go to sleep, it will be harder for you to fall asleep. Strong lights suppress the secretion of melatonin, the hormone responsible for falling asleep easily. As such, avoid using your phone, tablet or computer before going to bed.

There are many reasons and solutions to not being able to sleep. Depending on the cause, therapeutic Denver stem cell treatment may be the solution.
