Part 3 = Menopausal Insomnia

Wouldn't it be great to just sleep all day--or even take a short 'cat nap'? Sheesh! These cats have it made! 😴

So if you've been following my previous posts, I'm doing a Menopause/MANOPAUSE series. Yes, even men are affected by hormonal changes. Hopefully this information serves BOTH any and all that can benefit from the information.

This week I'm talking about insomnia. 💤 There is SOOO much information out there for over the counter or prescription meds--but I want to talk about NATURAL healing products/food/ideas. Things I've tried with GREAT success. I know my body is capable of healing itself and has proved this to be true with everything I've done so far.

🧐 Let's face it--when estrogen and progesterone decline, and they go hand in hand hormonally speaking, sleep is going to be affected. Progesterone is a sleep inducing hormone. Totally makes sense, so how do we counteract this decline?

Let's dive in!

➡️ Sleep routine. Got one? I know you've heard it time and time again, but have you truly put it into practice? So I challenged myself (I love challenges, if you haven't noticed) to do the sleep routine for 30 days. Here's what I did:

  • Epsom salt bath (or hot tubbed)

  • Lavender/patchouli on the bottom of my feet and hair line

  • Magnesium

  • Golden flaxseed ground (not flax meal)

  • no electronics 1 hour before bed

  • deep breathing/sleep meditation

Probably in that order. THEN I kept a sleep journal. What have I noticed? YES! I am sleeping way better 9 times out of 10.

👇🏼Here are some other remedies to try if you want the natural route:

  1. Valerian Root

  2. 5-HTP

  3. Theanine

  4. Lemon Balm Complex

  5. Tart cherry juice

  6. Black Cohosh

  7. Chamomile tea

  8. Melatonin

🌸 I highly recommend muscle testing every supplement before taking it.
