Full Transcript of Promoting Healthy Sleep by Nancy Guberti

Hi! It’s Nancy Guberti, functional medicine specialist, nutritionalist, and healthy lifestyle coach. And today I’m here to talk with you about sleep. So many people are sleep deprived these days and I don’t know if you know that when you are deprived of sleep, not only does that affect your mental alertness and your mood but it also affects your weight management. You could actually gain weight because youíre not getting the proper sleep. Sleep is so important for you to rejuvenate your body. So I wanted to give you some tips for trying yourself to see if you can make your environment a very healthy one where you can get deep sleep.

Now if you have a health condition and your hormones are very out of rack and they are imbalanced and your cortisol levels spike up in the afternoon. You know you’re cortisol levels are supposed to be higher in the morning and as the day progresses they go down but what I see with individuals with sleep deprivation is it starts to rev up in the afternoon into the evening and those are individuals who say, “you know, I gain all my energy at the end of the day and then I stay awake and then, you know, I either catch up on my work or my house work or I watch video marathons of videos on Netflix”. So you want to try to break that pattern.

If it isn’t biomedical reason, I would highly recommend that you get a functional medicine test to determine if your hormones are out of wack. Because then you can take homeopathics and nutraceuticals to address that and then help you sleep. If you can’t lose the last 5 or 10 pounds and you’re struggling with weight, I would also recommend to do some testing to figure out where the imbalance is.

Now, if it’s more behavioral and you can’t just quiet your mind perhaps that could be adrenal fatigue and imbalance with your neurotransmitters. You could try a few things. So you could try an amino acid like Gaba. Obviously if you are taking medications, you always want to ask your physician if there is any interaction. So you want to calm down and nourish the adrenal system.

Other ways to do that is: you can go for teas. Yogi Tea has a lot of medicinal ones and there’s a stress-free leaf: ones with honey and lavender. Lots of times people just need to know how to breathe and they need to just unwind from the stresses of the day and put together a to-do list of what they didn’t accomplish or what they want to accomplish the next day–what we call a brain dump. So you’re not waking up in the middle of the night saying oh, I need to do this, I need to go there, I need to call this person because then that doesn’t let you relax. There is a breathe-deep tea that you can take along with while you are doing your breathing exercises. You really do need to find a way to unwind.

Other areas that you could try are essential oils. We have these stress-free roll-ons that you can use. You could put them on your wrist, you could put them on your legs, and you could also go for if youíre taking a bath with Epsom salts as well as essential oils. You could put on lavender just to get you calm and then you could also use lavender essential oils and make your own spray, and spray your bedroom.

Another thing that is really important is making sure you don’t have any of your electrical devices with you because blue lights from the electromagnetic fields can actually stimulate you and keep you awake.

As for food, you don’t want to eat a heavy meal two hours prior to going to bed and you don’t want get stimulated by watching TV or checking Facebook or any social media because that will also stimulate you. If you are low in melatonin then if you have any lights on even a night light in the bathroom that can disrupt your melatonin. Some people will use these types of eye pillows to shut out the light and sleeping with a TV is not a good idea.

In addition, I would not keep your iPhone near you or whatever phone you use. Don’t use that as an alarm clock because if someone texts you, you get a notification you’re going to wake up and it’s going to disturb your cycle of sleep. In addition, if you happen to wake up in the middle of the night say to go to the bathroom, you may be tempted to check your social media and there is an addiction to social media so keep it out of the bedroom.
