Secrets to Better Sleep: Simple Strategies from Dr. E

Getting a good night’s sleep is a game-changer, isn’t it? It can lift your mood, zap stress, and make you feel like you’re ready to conquer the world. We know it’s not always easy to drift off into dreamland, but Dr. Efrat Lamandre, who was recently invited on CBS KSEE Fresno, shares some straightforward tips that could lead you to better zzz’s. Let’s dive in and turn those sleepless nights into peaceful slumbers.

Stick to a Schedule

First things first, Dr. E emphasized the importance of keeping a consistent sleep schedule. Life’s a wild ride, and weekends can tempt us to throw our routines out the window. But here’s the thing: your body loves a good routine, especially when it comes to sleep. As Dr. E explains, sticking to a consistent sleep schedule is key. This means heading to bed and waking up at the same time every day, yes, even on those lazy Sunday mornings.

Why? Because your body has an internal clock, known as your “circadian rhythm,” that aligns with the daylight and night cycles. Keeping a regular sleep schedule helps your internal clock stay on track, making it easier for you to fall asleep and wake up naturally. Picture it like setting your favorite song as your morning alarm; you get used to the tune and start waking up before the song even starts.

The Power of ‘Thermal Shock’

A hot shower can be the perfect end to a long day, right? What if I told you that it might also be your ticket to snooze city? The host at CBS KSEE Fresno discovered this by accident, and guess what? Dr. E backed it up with science. It’s called “thermal shock,” and it’s as cool as it sounds (pun intended).

Taking a sizzling hot shower about an hour before bed can do wonders. Once you step out into cooler air, your body temperature drops rapidly, signalling your brain that it’s sleepy time. And just like that, you’re off to the land of nod faster than you can say “goodnight.”

Final Word

Keeping a regular sleep schedule and making hot showers part of your evening routine are just a couple of ways you can up your sleep game. It’s all about taking those small, manageable steps towards healthier habits. Remember, your sleep is crucial to your overall well-being. So it’s worth investing a little time and effort into making sure you’re getting the rest you deserve.

We hope these insights from Dr. E help you look at sleep in a new light. So, why not give these tips a try tonight? Sweet dreams are within reach, and you’ve got the tools to make them a reality.

Hi! I’m Dr. E, The NP with a PHD. Several years ago, my wife was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and the only options given to us were heavy duty medications.

We KNEW there had to be a better way. After a long search, we discovered functional medicine.

With functional medicine we found alternative ways we were able to manage her disease and get her back to feeling like her old self.

We discovered that this way of life not only helps people with various issues, including autoimmune, chronic issues and “I-don’t-feel-good-itis.”

Functional medicine drastically changed our lives and using it I developed The KNEW Method to help others who are suffering or not feeling optimal.

Let’s work together to get you to feeling like your old self again.
