Managing Sleep and Circadian Disruption with Herbal Medicine
How does being up all night for a birth alter your body’s secretion of cortisol? Why is it more difficult to get good “catch up” sleep following a birth if you get home during the day? How does eating in the middle of the night at a birth affect your blood sugar metabolism, digestion, and your sleep cycle the following night?
In this workshop we will explore the link between “chronodisruption” (or the misalignment between your body’s circadian timing system and your sleep/behavior caused by night work) and diverse health effects including impact on the sleep-wake cycle, the immune system, the chronic stress response and the neuroendocine system, digestion and the “gut clock”, and metabolism & blood sugar balance. We will cover herbal, nutritional, and practical lifestyle adjustments to mitigate the long-term health impacts of chronodisruption caused by birth work and help your body realign with its natural circadian rhythms.
