Sleep issues have become something of an epidemic. Our lives are fast, and expectations are high. Our beloved devices don’t help in any way, keeping us overly connected at all hours of the day. It’s time of a new perspective.
The cause: Stress and anxiety are major contributors to insomnia. Tend to those, and better sleep should follow. But other factors come into play:
- Irregular or changing chemistry
- Artificial light and evening use of devices
- Erratic schedules
- Medication side effects
- Pre-existing medical conditions
Serious damage: The effects on every day life are devastating. But the long-term impact is even worse. A non-typical sleep schedule disturbs the body’s natural pattern of rest and rejuvenation, which can lead to physical and mental problems, including cardiovascular disease, hypertension, asthma, diabetes and depression.
A new perspective: Instead of using medication that “force” sleep, a natural approach that reduces nervous tension and quiets the mind, may be the ticket.
Some herbals that help:
Valerian and California Poppy – Used in herbal medicine as a treatment for restlessness, they will both help you fall asleep faster.
Skullcap – Skullcap is traditionally used in herbal medicine to reduce nervous tension and insomnia. Skullcap will help you STAY asleep.
Lemon balm – Lemonbalm has long been used in herbal medicine as a sleep-promoting herb. It reduces nervous tension and helps get quality sleep.
Magnesium – Magnesium is involved in countless functions including muscle relaxation, helping you full relax after a long day.
To include Veeva Sleep Formula as part of your routine, simply take two capsules 30 minutes before bedtime.
