Greetings Sleep Seekers!
It's Dr. Michelle, your go-to for all things, healthy, happy, and harmonizing to level up your wellness!
As a Physician, Certified Holistic Health Counselor, and Clinical Nutritionist, I know a thing or two about those restless nights that keep you tossing and turning. Especially being one who is PHENOMENALLY 50+. In the past year, I noticed changes in my sleep. Many of you asked if I could create something for sleep.
You asked and I'm here to deliver. I'm going to spill the tea on how to make your nights more restful, especially during perimenopause and menopause. 💃✨
Why Sleep Becomes Disrespectful During Menopause
First things first, let's talk about why sleep decides to put on its dancing shoes just when you're ready to lay it down. Hormonal changes during perimenopause and menopause (particularly decreased estrogen) can lead to insomnia, making it tough to catch those much-needed Zzz's.
Symptoms of having difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, night sweats, or waking in the morning not feeling rested are common. But don't despair! With the right tools, tips, and tea (yes, tea!), you can turn those sleepless nights into dreamy escapes.

- Lemon Balm: This calming herb is like a comforting hug, easing anxiety and helping your mind chill out with a mild sedative effect. BONUS: it has some anti-bacterial benefits

- Valerian Root: This root is a pro at ushering you into slumberland, making it easier to fall asleep and improving the quality of your sleep. It has the added benefit of easing anxiety and a depressed mood that can result from chronic stress. For more Sisters maneuvering menopause, research shows it can ease hot flashes.

Tips to Embrace Sleep Like a Pro 💤

- Create a Ritual: To slow down racing thoughts and tell your brain it is time to rest and rejuvenate.
