Difficultly in Falling Asleep or Sleep Disruptions

The problem of falling asleep and sleep disruptions leads to loss of brain volume. In an article by Life Extension Feb. 2015, relatively healthy older adults with short sleep duration have significantly smaller brains than those with longer sleep duration. In addition, for every hour of reduced sleep duration, they experience a 0.59% yearly increase in the size of the blood-filled ventricles, and a 0.67% decrease in cognitive performance. Similarly, increases in brain shrinkage are associated with decreased quality of sleep as well.

This problem seems to affect everyone at some time or another.

Psychological problems are the cause of 50% of all sleep difficulties. Here are few drugs that can cause you to have problems falling asleep or disrupt sleep: thyroid preparations, beta blockers, caffeine, marijuana, and alcohol.

Try doing a regular routine of exercising. Exercising help reduce stress or find a way to reduce your stress.

If you are taking medications as your doctor or pharmacist if it may be causing you insomnia.

Two to three kiwis a day for four weeks reduced the potential for forming blood clots by nearly 20 percent compared to those who did not eat kiwis. Kiwi’s will also reduced your triglycerides and protect your blood vessels and heart.

Lemons have a compound called limonene, which also has anticancer activity, is responsible for this effect. It has natural antiseptic properties, makes for great remedy for sore throat.
