New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?

More specifically, you want help with The 7 Reasons Why You Get Up During the Night?

so today we’re going to talk about the seven reasons why you are up through the night and you can’t sleep through the entire night if you have a problem sleeping this is a very important video I’ve done other videos that explain parts of this but I’ve never done a video that explains all the reasons so this is based on working with 40,000 people over 29 years okay so this is the stuff that will help you number one high blood sugar if you’re diabetic or a pre-diabetic and you have high blood sugars what happens is that water follows this sugar so you’re gonna end up peeing more especially at night so just by fixing the blood sugar issue you’ll be able to hold the urine a lot longer so if you’re new to my channel I put a link down below of how to do that number two which relates to one high insulin which is a little different insulin stimulates something called the sympathetic nervous system the system that’s called the flutter fight like part of the nervous system that controls the stress signals okay when you have too much of this system you will not be able to hold your bladder so you’re going to want to get up and go to the bathroom over and over and over again so you want to decrease insulin the same solution that fixes this will fix this I put a link down below number three high cortisol this is the adrenal hormone this is a stress hormone and what happens is when you go to bed at night normally you go through four waves of sleep these are called circadian waves from a superficial wave which is the REM sleep to the deep delta-wave sleep right here with higher levels of cortisol not only are you not able to get into the deeper sleep cycles but usually you’re going to end up waking up about 2:00 a.m. in the morning which is exactly when you should have the deepest sleep and I used to have this problem as well because I had high cortisol but you wake up at 2:00 and you are completely awake in fact you’re more awake in the middle of the night than you are during the day yet sometimes they’re flipped so in the middle of night when you should be sleeping that’s when you’re the most awake and then when you wake up in the morning you’re the most tired right here this situation usually occurs when you have years of stress I put a link down below of exactly what to do about it it’s in my stress webinar I show you how to fix this problem right here but another thing you can do as a temporary solution is to take higher amounts of vitamin d3 it can really help restore your cortisol levels and before too much coffee and tea because of the caffeine it’s a stimulant and it takes a certain amount for your liver to get rid of that caffeine personally I consume one small cup of coffee in the morning that says I don’t have any tea anything else simply because I used to drink a ton of coffee it’s just something you need to be aware of because if you’re doing everything else right and you’re just doing a little too much of this or too much of this that could be the reason why you’re just not sleeping through the night number five too much artificial light so let’s say for example you have a computer job or you’re behind your computer all day long and you have this LED screen and you’re in your eyes this is definitely not good for the activation of certain hormones that help you sleep at night so you want to get a full spectrum light around your desk in your computer and you also want to go for a walk to offset the sitting and from the computer all day long and also get some vitamin D or in sunlight on your face and also one last point when you’re out in the Sun and I see people wear the dark glasses and they don’t get any Sun in their eyes and not to look into the Sun at 12 o’clock noon okay but just allow the natural sunlight to penetrate the eyes so you can have somewhat of a recharging effect all right number six sleep apnea very common very simple solution all you have to do well this is a temporary solution because vitamin b1 helps a certain area in the brainstem that’s involved with breathing okay the breathing centers and if you’re deficient you’re gonna have a big problem with this at night so it’s just a matter of taking some b1 and also getting rid of the reason why you’re depleted in b1 the most common one is you’re consuming too many carbohydrates okay so it comes back to these two right here you need to lower the carbohydrates in your diet and you also need to take nutritional yeast which has the natural b1 versus a synthetic vitamin also be one helps the excessive thinking all the time that people are have anxiety and they’re worried all the time and that nervous tension that’s going to keep you from sleeping as well and there’s one more condition called lactic acidosis as a byproduct of having too much carbohydrate and diet and that can build up and that can actually throw up your ph well it just so happens that vitamin b1 gets rid of this this lactic acid okay all right I want to talk about the last one number seven which is pH that can affect your sleep there’s two situations one is that your body is too alkaline and the other is your body’s too acid now if you’re too alkaline you’re gonna have a lot of cramping your muscles are gonna be tense and tight and there’s nothing that will wake you up faster than having a charley horse in the middle of the night okay vitamin D will also help this vitamin d3 but in reality you may want to take some outside of vinegar because these minerals the alkaline minerals especially like the magnesium potassium calcium and even sodium need a certain pH for those minerals to be activated if your pH is too alkaline these minerals just don’t work and so you’re gonna have a lot of cramping muscles techne a lot of spasms things like that so it’s just a matter of adding the absolute vinegar vitamin d3 would help your calcium absorption because if you’re low in calcium you won’t be able to relax too so you might be exhausted but your head won’t turn off okay vitamin D will help you with that vitamin D will also help you with the high cortisol but also it can act as an off switch if you’re laying there at night you just can’t wind down can help getting you in that deeper delta-wave sleep now one time I remember drinking too much kombucha tea it comes in a bottle like this and it’s very carbonated very acidic I drank the whole thing when normally you should drink like half of it or less than that and I remember just having these symptoms right here my pulse rate went up I was really restless the nervous system was on edge higher pulse rate and air hunger so I was sighing frequently like I just couldn’t get enough air so what you need to do for this one is alkalize the body and you can do it several ways you can do with calcium magnesium or potassium now you have all seven reasons why you’re not sleeping apply the one that fits your situation and comment below if you’re liking this content please

If you’ve been asking yourself, “why do I wake up at night” I think I can help. After working with 40,000 people over 29 years, I have found there are 7 reasons why you get up during the night. This is a really important video to watch if you find yourself waking up at night. I’m going to share with you what actually works, so you can rest and sleep easier.

Here are the 7 reasons you may be experiencing trouble sleeping, and how to sleep better:

1. High Blood Sugar
If you’re diabetic, or pre-diabetic, you probably find yourself having to urinate at night. This is because water follows sugar. But, fixing the blood sugar problems will help you hold your urine longer.

2. High Insulin
Insulin stimulates your sympathetic nervous system. When you have too much of this system, you won’t be able to hold your bladder overnight. You need to decrease your insulin.

3. High Cortisol
This is the adrenal hormone—the stress hormone. When you have high cortisol, you cant get into deep sleep cycles. You’re probably waking up at about 2 am when you should be in the deepest sleep. This typically happens after years of stress. Take D3 as a temporary solution to restore your cortisol levels.

4. Coffee/Tea
Caffeine is a stimulate which can keep you up at night and cause you to have poor sleep. It takes time for the liver to detoxify these stimulants. Too much caffeine from coffee and tea will prevent the body from fully relaxing. You may want to cut this down to 1 small cup in the am.

5. Artificial Light
If you’re behind a computer all day, staring at the LED screen is not good for the activation of certain hormones that help you sleep at night. You need to get a full-spectrum light, go for a walk, and allow the sunlight to hit your face.

6. Sleep Apnea
B1 helps a certain area in the brain stem that’s involved with breathing. If you’re deficient in B1, you’re going to have a hard time breathing at night. You need to take B1 and also get rid of why you’re deficient in B1. In many cases, people are depleted of B1 because of a high-carbohydrate diet. Lower your carbs and take nutritional yeast.

7. Altered pH
Your body may be too alkaline or too acid. If you get leg cramps at night, your body may be too alkaline. If your pH is too alkaline, this can cause cramps. Vitamin D3 will help, and apple cider vinegar will help. This may also help if you experience stress at night or can’t wind down. For too much acid, you need to alkalize the body.
