Evening Trick STOPS Depression
The way mainstream medicine treats depression is practically CRIMINAL.
A typical doctor will give you that little depression quiz… put you on some prescription antidepressants… and have you out of his office in less than 10 minutes.
They’re not even TRYING to find out what’s causing your depression in the first place.
And that’s TRAGIC.
Because research PROVES that a simple nighttime problem may be the secret cause of your depression.
And fixing it could stop your depression cold.
Believe it or not, a good night’s sleep is the magic elixir for beating depression.
Specifically, rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, the phase where your dreams are made.
There are five distinct sleep phases of sleep and REM may be the most important.
REM is characterized by rapid and shallow breathing, fast eye movement, and a rise in heart rate and blood pressure.
While fast breathing, fast eye movement, and increased heart rate don’t sound too relaxing, your brain needs REM sleep.
Lack of REM sleep (common with insomnia) undermines your ability to handle emotional distress and raises your risk for anxiety and chronic depression.
A new study out of the Department of Sleep and Cognition in the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience has discovered why.
When we are in REM sleep, key hormones such as serotonin, adrenaline, and dopamine are inactivated.
When our REM sleep is disturbed, these hormones never get a timeout.
Then, a lack of REM sleep leads to a vicious cycle of over arousal: where bad sleep promotes anxiety, which makes it harder to sleep the next night…
That is a cycle you don’t want to be on.
Let me show you how to get out of this wicked Catch-22.
Dr. Scott’s Better-Sleep Program:
- Exercise is one of the best paths to a good night’s sleep. When your body is physically tired, your mind has no choice but to give in. Find an exercise you love and increase how much you are exercising when you feel stressed.
- Avoid caffeine in the afternoon: this means coffee, tea, chocolate, and energy drinks.
- Sleeping alone is another option for people who are woken up by their mate. The National Sleep Foundation found that nearly 25 percent of couples sleep in separate beds.
- Calming herbs such as hops, passionflower, lemon balm, chamomile, and valerian all help relax the body and mind.
- Theanine is an amino acid found in green tea that helps people feel calm.
- Melatonin is a hormone that promotes good sleep. If you have regular trouble sleeping, you may have a melatonin deficiency.
