Sleep Restoration Q&A

What is sleep restoration?

Sleep is fundamental to all aspects of health, but many people struggle to achieve peaceful, restorative sleep consistently.

People with insomnia have difficulty getting to sleep, staying asleep, and/or waking too early. While everyone experiences the occasional sleepless night, insomniacs struggle with sleeplessness most nights. The lack of sleep can be exhausting and frustrating, affecting your mood and productivity during the day.

If you don’t sleep well or for long enough, you could experience multiple problems, from reduced memory and concentration to irritability, excessive daytime sleepiness, and chronic fatigue. Lacking good quality sleep also increases your risk of many medical disorders, including heart disease and Type 2 diabetes.

If you have difficulty getting enough sleep or feel tired after sleeping, the Body & Mind Consulting team uses various sleep restoration techniques to improve sleep quality and consistency.

Why would I need sleep restoration treatment?

Sleeplessness has many potential causes, including:

  • Anxiety and stress
  • Aging
  • Lack of exercise
  • Drinking caffeine before bed
  • Hot or bright sleeping environment
  • Noise
  • Excitement about upcoming events
  • Daytime naps
  • Insufficient sunlight
  • Needing to urinate frequently at night
  • Chronic pain
  • Stimulant medications
  • Sleep apnea
  • Restless legs syndrome

Excessive stimulation before bedtime is a common cause of sleep problems. Watching TV, playing games, exercising, and using a mobile device can make it harder to fall asleep.

What does sleep restoration involve?

The functional medicine experts at Body & Mind Consulting assess each patient holistically before preparing a personalized treatment plan. They look at everything in your life that could affect your sleep quality and suggest actions to address them.

Your sleep restoration program could contain some or all of the following:

  • Stress management
  • Meditation
  • Breathing exercises
  • Dietary advice
  • Supplements and nutraceuticals
  • Wave Neuroscience Sonal Personalized Braincare™
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Emotional freedom techniques (EFT)
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBTI)

CBTI combines several interventions, including talk therapy, that help you change your behaviors and attitudes towards sleep. You also learn good sleep hygiene, for example, avoiding caffeine and other stimulants, following a healthy, regular bedtime routine, and improving your sleeping environment.

Your provider may use techniques like sleep restriction, which involves only staying in bed when you’re asleep. You gradually increase the time in bed as your body adjusts until you reach your goal.
