How Does IV Therapy Help with Sleep?
Researchers have shared just how vital quality sleep is to restoring and repairing our bodies. Restful sleep helps you feel rejuvenated and refreshed both physically and mentally. We’ve all been there after a tough night of tossing and turning only to start the next day not feeling like ourselves. For some, a bad night of sleep is just a temporary occurrence and for others it becomes a chronic condition called Insomnia.
Insomnia is a chronic sleep disorder which can make it hard to fall asleep, stay asleep or cause you to wake up earlier than normal. Overall, it results in you not getting the quality of sleep you need in order to perform your best. While the root cause of insomnia may differ amongst individuals, typically it is related to mental anxiety or stress or physiological symptoms present in the body. Chronic insomnia is often described as having sleep issues for more than three nights a week in a time span of over three months.
Insomnia requires a multifaceted approach to help individuals get the restful sleep their body needs. Holistic interventions help sufferers carefully examine the role that diet, exercise and stress play into their sleep disorders. One contributing factor that is often overlooked is dehydration. Dehydration can affect the sleep hormone melatonin which can throw off your circadian rhythm resulting in sleep issues. If you find yourself forgetful of proper hydration during the day, overcompensating before bed may result in nighttime wakefulness to visit the restroom. Compromised sleep leads to insufficient immune response and lowers the body’s ability to fight infection and is also a contributing factor to mental illness, mood swings, fatigue, weight gain and chronic diseases.
Due to IV nutritional therapy’s high absorbency rate, you can also supply your body with the nutrition it needs which may help balance hormones promoting more restful sleep.
Supplements such as magnesium are known to help individuals feel calmer, reduce stress, and promote a relaxation response which can help you fall asleep faster and sleep deeper. Other nutrient deficiencies may lead to poor quality sleep issues.
Proper nutrition results in higher quality sleep. Nutrition deficiencies result in imbalances in the body which affects your body’s ability to produce necessary hormones, detoxify, fight infection, and promote restful sleep. Sleep is a holistic process that is ultimately affected by several lifestyle choices. IV therapy helps support your body in receiving the nutrition and hydration it needs to improve your wellbeing.
