Insomnia Q & A
What causes insomnia?
For many with undiagnosed hormone imbalances and women going through the transition to menopause, fluctuations in hormone levels can result in difficulties falling or staying asleep.
Adrenal hormones, such as cortisol and adrenaline work by a circadian clock, which is how your body keeps track of daytime, nighttime, and a change in seasons. These hormones assist in resetting your body according to the changes in the rotation of the earth. When there’s an imbalance in these hormones, you may experience insomnia.
Your insomnia may also be the result of hormonal changes, especially a drop in estrogen levels, that cause additional stress or other symptoms that interfere with your quality of life and normal sleep patterns. These symptoms may include hot flashes and night sweats, which make it difficult for you to get a good night’s sleep.
How is insomnia diagnosed?
When you have insomnia due to a hormone imbalance in your adrenal glands, you may often feel exhausted but are still unable to fall asleep. Other symptoms of insomnia include:
Waking up too early
Difficulties staying asleep
When a lack of sleep begins to affect your quality of life, Dr. Wells can perform a comprehensive hormone test, checking your base levels and how each of your hormones work together with the 11 main systems of your body.
Dr. Wells also reviews your medical history, lifestyle habits, and the overall health of your organs to determine if hormones are the root cause of your symptoms.
How does hormone therapy help with insomnia?
Dr. Wells creates a custom treatment plan using a holistic approach and hormone therapy to alleviate symptoms and boost your health. Based on the results of your test, he can provide you with necessary hormones to rebalance your body’s systems and help you achieve high-quality sleep.
It may take time for Dr. Wells to find the right dosage of hormones to get you feeling better. Throughout your therapy, you work closely with Dr. Wells to determine which hormone therapy works best for you. He can also suggest lifestyle changes to help you enjoy better quality sleep, such as avoiding television and other electronics at least an hour before bed to help you relax and get your brain ready for bed.
