Regular Sleep Is Essential

Regular sleep is essential to proper function & health of your entire body (1)

Anyone else feeling slightly off after Daylight Savings Time? I know I’m personally feeling like a night owl all of a sudden! Sleep is so vitally important as it allows our body to heal and repair the damage we’ve done throughout the day.
Studies show that quality sleep “helps regulate our immune system, maintain optimal hormone balance (including ghrelin – the hunger hormone), enhance brain function, and support emotional well-being.” Lack of sleep can actually increase our risk for chronic health issues such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. PLUS, as you probably know, driving while sleep-deprived is just as dangerous as driving while intoxicated!!!
If you’ve been having issues getting proper sleep, there’s likely an underlying cause creating an imbalance in your system! I personally suffered from insomnia until I started receiving regular chiropractic care, and I definitely had some major imbalances (thyroid issues, adrenal fatigue, and estrogen overload just to name a few). I can’t even begin to tell you how relieved I was when my body finally had the ability to sleep through the night again!!
