Anxiety, depression, insomnia connection
Anxiety and depression are not causing your insomnia.
Yes, you can be caught in the cycle of anxiety/depression leading to insomnia leading to anxiety/depression leading to insomnia.
But one does not cause the other.
In fact, anxiety, depression, and insomnia all have the same cause: imbalances in your body.
An unhealthy gut. If you don’t have enough good bacteria in your gut, they can’t make the neurotransmitters you need to feel calm, relaxed, and sleepy.
Hormone imbalance. Low progesterone, low or high estrogen, and low testosterone can lead to anxiety, depression, sleep disturbances, mood swings, and more.
High cortisol. If you’re stressed all the time and your cortisol levels are high, you’ll feel wired and anxious. When cortisol gets depleted, your body resorts to adrenaline which makes you feel even worse.
Mineral imbalances. When your minerals get out of whack, you can experience mental health symptoms.
Heavy metal toxicity. Heavy metals accumulate in the brain and cause neurological symptoms.
Even though anxiety, depression, and insomnia seem like mental health issues, the cause is in your body, not your head.
Drugs make things even worse and are addictive.
The only way to feel calm and happy is to get to the root cause of what’s causing it and correct it.
