You wake every morning feeling like you were up all night, well maybe you were.  Even though you were sleeping all through the night you may be experiencing sleep disturbances.  There are over 70 different types of sleep disorders and are all categorized in three areas lack of sleep, disturbed sleep, and excessive sleep.  Sleep disturbances occur throughout the night without you even knowing it, this can be caused by many different problems.  Many patients with hypoadrenia and hypothyroid experience sleep disturbances.  Low vitamin B may also play a role. Also,reducing stress,proper exercise (will help reduce cortisol levels), proper nutrition , limiting caffeine especially in the evening, and developing an overall healthy lifestyle can help correct these problems.  Everyone is different.

There are stages in your sleep that your body must go through to achieve a good night sleep, in fact there are 5. This cycles over and over throughout the night.

Stage 1 – Light sleep and relaxation of the muscles. ( can wake up)
Stage 2 – Activity in the brain slows and eye movement stops.
Stage 3 – Brains waves become slow (delta waves) and small quick waves occur.
Stage 4 – Brains waves are all delta wave.
Stage 5 – (REM) Rapid Eye Movement – dreams occur.

This usually takes about an hour and a half to complete 1 cycle.

Sleep is needed for your body to function properly, so take care of yourself and do what it takes to achieve a good night sleep.
