Getting Adequate Sleep Is Critical

Erika Schwartz, M.D By Friday, 01 December 2023 04:11 PM EST Current | Bio | Archive

During sleep, you rejuvenate and make all the hormones you need. Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep is crucial to keeping you forever young. But as we age, sleep comes less easily, and loss of hormones and stress make it difficult to get the needed eight hours.

I’m not a fan of sleeping pills, but I am a fan of antianxiety medication to help you relax and go to sleep. Change your sleep routine and take Valium or Xanax for a few nights if you can’t get continuous sleep for eight hours. Within a couple of weeks you will find yourself getting better sleep and longer sleep.

Try going to sleep one half hour earlier each night until you get to eight hours. When you get to eight hours, you’ll be amazed at how much better you look and feel in the morning.

Don’t exercise right before bedtime and take out of your bedroom anything to do with work, along with any electronic devices including the cellphone, TV, and computer.

Stay away from combination sleep supplements such as GABA and melatonin. Some people do well with one of them, but I have yet to see someone do well with combinations.
