Symptoms - Hormone Deficiency
One of the symptoms of hormone deficiency is bad sleep.
And also hormone deficiencies cause bad sleep.
That is why the word "balance" is key!
One of the best easy tips for losing weight is sleeping well.
Recently Dr. Mercola author of "Effortless Healing" wrote an article "How To Stay Thin For Life". Yeah right that's so easy!
Many of us know it's not.
And his article was about sleep. Good sleep = good body weight!
I believe this and I'll tell you why - recently I started Intermittent Fasting -which I talked about here.
I lost four pounds suddenly but then slept quite badly one night - and the next morning had gained three.
But 2 mornings later after 2 good night's sleep - I had lost six pounds since the start of the Intermittent Fasting.
Dancers often suffer from aching muscles - and that's a deep ache!
About 300 to 400 mg magnesium will help relax muscles. Yet it's good to add some potassium and B6 since these vitamins act in concert - yup they have their own choreography in those muscles!
In extreme cases of insomnia ask your doctor about melatonin and do your own search. Some medical doctors shy away from it because it's a hormone. But if you're not sleeping...well it's a late night brain released hormone that cleanses your brain.And helps you sleep, deeply.
Melatonin can be deficient for different reasons. Lack of sunlight. Or simply a personal deficiency.
I wear Amber tinted glasses when I'm on the computer in the evening. That eliminates the blue-light brightness that stimulates the brain. The UV spectrum.
In fact I'm yawning now - so I'll say - g'night and sleep well! Time to go take my melatonin and keep losing weight!
