Tips for Naturally Improving Sleep

A woman sleeps peacefully in her bed.

As you age, hormonal changes are a natural occurrence that can wreak havoc on various aspects of your life. These imbalances may cause you to have trouble falling or staying asleep, creating a vicious cycle that can further disrupt your hormone levels.

Women are particularly susceptible to sleep issues, as estrogen and progesterone fluctuations during menstrual cycles, pregnancy, and menopause can disrupt sleep. Hormones act as chemical messengers that tell your organs and systems what to do and when to do it. Sudden changes in just one hormone in your body can affect other hormones and organs, leading to sleep problems, hot flashes, blood sugar imbalances, anxiety, low libido, and other issues.

If you are experiencing these symptoms, improving your diet, exercise, and sleep habits may not be enough to break free from this cycle. Thankfully, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) could help improve sleep quality by restoring hormone balance in the body. Dr. Edward Jacobson, our seasoned wellness doctor, administers these hormones in doses that are tailored to your needs, helping you alleviate hormonal imbalances that may be impacting your sleep. Read on to learn more about naturally improving sleep using BHRT.

BHRT for Sleep Improvement

BHRT is one of the most effective ways to regain control of your sleep and hormone balance, especially during perimenopause. BHRT can manage and rebalance certain hormones like estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, and insulin.

It is important to note that BHRT is not the same as traditional hormone replacement, which uses synthetic hormones.  BHRT utilizes natural, plant-based hormones that closely mimic your body’s natural hormones. When administered regularly, BHRT can increase your low hormone levels back to normal levels. As your hormones come back into balance, the rest of your body responds in kind, and your symptoms may diminish and can even go away altogether. Research has consistently shown that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy helps decrease vasomotor symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, and rapid heartbeat, among the leading causes of insomnia in perimenopausal women. BHRT could also help reduce other perimenopausal symptoms and the risk of many diseases.
