It’s easy to understand if you don’t feel rested after a sleepless night. An extra cup of coffee may give you the boost you need in the past, but this is different. It almost seems like coffee makes you feel worse. You begin wonder, “I think I’m sleeping well, so why don’t I feel rested?”
As we age into our 40’s and 50’s, our bodies can experience a change in our hormones that naturally causes fatigue. Some women may even experience fatigue to the point of developing a chronic fatigue syndrome. (WomentoWomen) The dragging, “haven’t slept” feeling can be frustrating with a busy day of meetings and responsibilities, managing stress, and making time for those we love. A woman’s body undergoes dramatic chemical changes as we enter our middle years of life. These changes can create complications in how we go about our everyday living, including how we sleep and rest.
Our diet choices can also influence how our bodies respond to any hormone changes. Eliminating caffeine and alcohol can affect our energy levels and how we enter our sleep cycles at night. Refined sugars and refined carbs, like bread, pasta, and white rice can also aggravate our chemical changes.
Some hormone changes and imbalances can contribute to night sweats, hot flashes, fatigue, and sleeplessness. Diet changes and reducing stress can sometimes help alleviate these symptoms, but many women benefit from receiving hormone replacement therapy. Our ReVital care staff is trained to identify your unique hormonal needs and how to give you the right treatment to feel your best.
