You may be suffering from a sleep disorder. Sleep is one of the life’s necessities and without it, your overall health and emotional wellbeing can suffer and can simply put you in a bad mood. It can cause cravings for sweet food, tiredness, lethargy, affect your stress levels, cause you to overreact and impair your work performance. Insomnia is the most common sleep disorder and if you answer yes to at least 2 of the first 8 questions above you may being suffering unnecessarily.
Often we can take our health for granted and don’t take good care of ourselves, leading to minor health concerns, e.g. stress, I.B.S, fertility concerns or headaches, to more serious concerns such as diabetes, strokes and heart attacks. We can avoid or minimise the impact of illnesses on our bodies by adopting an ‘everything in moderation’ approach and incorporating better lifestyle choices into our daily routine can work wonders on restoring harmony and balance to our health.
Stress contributes to many health problems and female reproductive health is no exception. It is a major cause of infertility and potential miscarriages in women. One of the major hormones we need to have insufficient levels in our bodies is progesterone for implantation to occur and to carry a pregnancy to term. Progesterone nourishes the uterine lining and prepares it for implantation of a fertilised egg.
