Been Counting Sheep Lately?
Do you have trouble falling asleep, or staying asleep?
Or do you wake up in the morning feeling exhausted?
If so, you’re not alone. Around 40 million Americans don’t get enough quality sleep, a widespread health concern that costs the United States around $100 billion per year in lost productivity, treatment, and insomnia-related accidents.
A good night’s rest is essential to your health. Disrupted sleep can lead to fatigue, poor concentration, and a negative impact on your physical, mental, and social wellbeing. In fact, a recent study has pointed out that getting 6 to 8 hours of sleep per night can actually decrease your chances of dying prematurely!
So Why Aren’t You Sleeping?
Generally, sleep disturbances can be divided into three categories:
An important part of improving your sleep is determining what could be contributing to your sleepless nights.
Now there’s a test kit to help you find out why you’re not sleeping well.
A simple, non invasive test – the NeuroScience NeuroSLP Test – is available through Village Green to help you determine possible imbalances in brain neurotransmitters and hormones that could be affecting your sleep. Using saliva and urine samples taken while you are experiencing sleeplessness, this test detects levels of 12 neurotransmitters (like serotonin, cortisol, and histamine) and provides a definitive report on the results.
Village Green can provide a test kit and consultation with one of our nutritional advisors, along with a follow-up session to discuss test results. (Health insurance often covers the cost of this test – check with them first to be sure.)
