2 Essential hormones that put you to sleep.
In this article I want to talk about two particular hormones that put you to sleep. No matter what kind of a problem you are having, it is always a good idea to find a natural cure than trying to find one that is produced by a pharmaceutical pill. I’ve talked about this in other articles. In this article I want to talk about two particular hormones that put you to sleep. First off, there are many reasons to avoid prescription medicines if you can. The main one is that medical cures tend to attack the symptoms of the problem rather than attacking the problem itself. Insomnia can be a classic example of this. If you take a sleeping pill that is given to you by the doctor, all that it is really going to do is to put you into an unconscious state! The underlying problem still remains. The prescription drug doesn’t get to the root of the problem. Quite often the underlying problem causing insomina has to do with the hormones in the body.
We have AMAZING BODIES!
Our bodies are amazingly balanced. Babies seldom have any problem sleeping do they? When we are firstborn, we rarely experience problems with insomnia. That is because the balance in our body allows us to sleep good when we need it. As we get older, however, our bodies change. The things that we are dealing with in our lives tend to throw our bodies out of balance. This makes it hard for us to sleep. Quite often those “things” that tend to get out of balance during these years are the hormones which help to regulate our bodies.
Here are two hormones that put you to sleep.
The first of these hormones is serotonin. Seratonin is not necessarily a sleep hormone. It has a lot to do with the mood that you are feeling. Serotonin is a hormone that is usually released whenever we exercise or do something good for our body. Seratonin will help us to feel good on the inside. It’s a stress reliever. Therefore, if our insomnia is stress related, the hormone serotonin can go a long way in helping us to get a good nights sleep.
The other hormone that we might not have enough of is melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone that is put out by our body that does a lot of different things.
The function we are concerned with here is sleep, it helps to put us to sleep. It’s common for people take natural forms of melatonin. This can help to overcome problems such as jet lag and insomnia. If you find that you are suffering from occasional sleeplessness, a little bit of melatonin in the form of a pill may go a long way in helping you to get the sleep that you need. However be aware that too much melatonin can have just the opposite effect and could keep you awake. If you decide to try it, don’t expect it to work over night, give it a couple of weeks to a month for your body to adjust.
