Crazy Hormones are Causing Your Insomnia

Every single one of my clients has hormone issues. Some are too high, some are too low. But either way, they feel like crap and their hormones are a big part of the problem.

When I talk about hormones, I'm talking about cortisol for one. Maybe your cortisol levels are too high, especially at night, so they’re a major cause of your insomnia. Or maybe your cortisol levels are too low and that's why you're so tired all the time. Or maybe they fluctuate throughout the day and that's why you feel great in the afternoon, for example, but tired in the morning and then you can't sleep at night.

I'm also talking about the sex hormones. Low estrogen and progesterone definitely cause sleep issues. Low testosterone helps explain why you have no energy. Melatonin is an important hormone to look at for sleep, too.

Once your hormones start getting out of whack, the other systems in your body start deteriorating, too. Which systems go first is different for everyone because it’s based on your genetic weak links. That’s why some of us (the unlucky ones!) get insomnia and others don’t.

The only way to fix your hormones is to find out for sure what's going on. I use the Dutch hormone test for my clients because it gives tons of information about your hormones and how they're being used in your body.

All of my clients have hormone issues but they're all different and so the way we get things back in balance is different every time. I customize my plans and recommendations for each one of my clients and that's what my program is so effective.

You can take some supplements and see if they'll help with your hormones. There’s a chance they’ll help. But they could also make things worse.

I believe that testing is better than guessing! The tests I do give me all the information I need to know what to correct and how to get your body back in balance. I’ll know exactly which supplements your body needs to get healthy and sleep again!

The first step to fixing your sleep is to schedule a call with me. I know this can be a scary thing to do! I know you’ve tried everything and lost hope and so it’s hard to believe that anything will work. But on this call, you’ll start to understand the reasons why you can’t sleep and believe that you can fix it.

If you’re interested, then we’ll talk about what it looks like to work together. Either way, you’ll have all the info you need to make the best decision for you. I know you’d love to figure out your sleep once and for all so I look forward to talking to you!
