What is Sleep Disorder?

 

Sleep disorder is a condition that prohibits a person from having restful sleep and can cause sleepiness and dysfunction during the day. Most people occasionally experience sleeping problems due to stress, hectic schedules, and other outside influences. However, when these issues occur regularly and interfere with daily life, they may indicate a sleeping disorder.

Symptoms:

Sleep Disorder symptoms include, but are not limited to the following:

      • Difficulty falling or staying asleep.
      • Unusual breathing patterns
      • Daytime fatigue
      • Strong urge to take naps during the day.
      • Unusual movement or other experiences while asleep.
      • Unintentional changes to your sleep/wake schedule.
      • Lack of concentration
      • Weight gain
      • Depression/anxiety
      • Impaired performance at work or school.

 

What causes Sleep Disorder?

There are many conditions, diseases, and disorders that can cause sleep disturbances. In many cases, sleep disorders develop because of an underlying health problem.
Allergies, colds, and upper respiratory infections can make it challenging to breathe at night. The inability to breathe through your nose can also cause sleeping difficulties.

Hormonal imbalances and diseases of the urinary tract may contribute to the development of this condition.

Arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, inflammatory bowel disease, stress, and anxiety often negatively impact sleep quality. It can be difficult for you to fall asleep or to stay asleep. Nightmares, sleep talking, or sleepwalking may also disrupt your sleep.

TREATMENT

At MindElation, We use a broad range of modalities that form part of the holistic treatment of chronic pain, all of which work well in conjunction with medical treatment.

Clinical hypnotherapy is an incredible therapy to overcome this issue. Sleep hypnosis will allow you to relax, unwind and get the high-quality deep sleep you need during waking hours to be safe, alert, and fully functional. Sleep hypnosis gets to the root of the problem and induces the subconscious mind to either eliminate, replace, or counteract the question.

Lifestyle adjustments can greatly improve your quality of sleep, especially when you are done with medical treatments. You may want to consider incorporating more vegetables and fish into your diet, reducing sugar intake, and reducing stress and anxiety by exercising and stretching.
