According to the National Sleep Foundation, 61% of menopausal women experience insomnia and disturbed nights. Food Scientist and Nutritional Therapist Susie Debice reveals natural ways to get a restorative night’s sleep.
Sleep is vital, yet many of us crave more of it. Even just one night of disturbed sleep may impact on your ability to cope with stress, leaving you feeling lethargic, groggy, irritable and unable to think straight. However, many menopausal women experience sleep problems night after night, which may impact on their well-being and vitality. The body tends to repair cells during deep sleep, so quality as well as quantity of sleep is important.
