Emotional Health & Sleep: “Doc Talks” with Dr. Daniel Nuzum
Dr. Daniel Nuzum: Okay, so, emotional health and sleep. Well, that’s an interesting combination, because your emotional health will affect your sleep, and your sleep will affect your emotional health. If you’re well-rested, you have more capacity to deal with things.
How does emotional health play in with rest? Well, that typically, it’s anxiety and things along those lines in our emotional life that disrupt our sleep.
So, things that feed into anxiety on a nutritional level are nutritional deficiencies. We also have blood sugar regulation; blood sugar going too high, blood sugar dropping too low. We also have thyroid and adrenal health.
You’re more prone to anxiety if your thyroid is off; either hyper or hypo. If you look at the symptoms hyperthyroid will bring about anxiety, and a hypothyroid, overactive or underactive. And the same with adrenal hormones. If you’ve got hyper-adrenals, they will bring about anxiety, and then, there’s also anxiety associated with hypo or underactive adrenals.
Other hormone issues, if there’s estrogen dominance, that also will bring on anxiety and things like that.
So, there are hormonal issues that can play into anxiety from a physical level. Nutritional deficiencies definitely will play in.
Another thing is toxicity. Different toxins start to disrupt our hormones and cause—they can wreak all kinds of havoc on our system.
So, when there are hormonal issues, and there’s an impending danger because the hormone system’s breaking down and whatnot, your body will try to communicate with you and tell you, “Hey, there’s something going on here.” One of those symptoms that it will produce is anxiety.
Anxiety’s something that does definitely play a role in disrupting people’s sleep.
Looking at the Organixx line of products, there are things like Turmeric 3D, E-Plexx or T-Plexx, the Iodine. Those are things that I would be reaching for, for anxiety or for the hormonal disruption that was disrupting sleep.
So, I hope this kind of gives you some insight into the emotional health and sleep.
