Restful Sleep is Essential for Youthful Vitality

Studies show that driving on only 6 hours of sleep is like driving drunk. Chronic sleep deprivation forces the body into a fight-or-flight response, pushing blood sugar and other hormone-related functions out of balance. According to Dr. Susan Smith Jones sleep deprivation also may accelerate the aging process. Other health issues related to chronic sleeplessness include toxic buildup, weight gain, depression, irritability, low sex drive, memory loss, lethargy, relationship problems and accidents. For maintaining a healthy body we should strive to get 6-8 hours of sleep a nite.

I have a 3 1/2 year old who is still waking up at night and therefore I struggle with insomnia. How can I get my blood sugar and hormones back in balance?
