Sleep (or lack of it!)
Research revealed this week again tells us what we probably know already that a lack of sleep is bad for our health Prof Smith from the University of Surrey concluded from his study that “Clearly sleep is critical to rebuilding the body and maintaining a functional state, all kinds of damage appear to occur. If we can’t actually replenish and replace new cells, then that’s going to lead to degenerative diseases.”
As we get older proper refreshing sleep seems to be more and more difficult to achieve. Maybe you’ve tried counting sheep or drinking chamomile tea but still lie there trying to get to sleep. Sometimes, even more annoyingly you get to sleep alright, but wake in the early hours and end up lying there waiting for that alarm to go off.
This is now a sign that you need some professional help to get you sleeping properly again. There are many many problems that can effect our sleep and here at Abergavenny Natural Therapy Centre we have many therapies that will approach it in a way thats right for you.
Maybe you suffer from back pain thats stopping you drop off or waking you up when the pain killers wear off. Our McTimoney Chiriopractors will realign your spine and pelvis. Moving your back into a position which will make it comfortable and able to heal.
Some people lie wake with a busy mind. If worry or anxiety are stopping you sleep why not talk to one of our Psychotherapist or Counsellors and get to the root of your worry. If you are not worried but have many thoughts buzzing round your brain then a Homeopathic remedy from one of our Homeopaths will offer relief.
