Insomnia in menopause: how can we help?

Content:

Have you ever heard the claim that insomnia and menopause go hand in hand? And this is borne out by numerous studies that have shown that 61% of women experience insomnia several years before or during menopause itself.

Menopause, which is a natural part of the ageing process of the female body, brings with it many challenges in the form of hormonal changes - one of which is insomnia. And since understanding and properly managing insomnia during this period is crucial to maintaining overall health and a better quality of life for menopausal women, we will focus on this topic in today's article.

What are the causes of insomnia in menopause?

The causes of insomnia in menopause are varied and usually include:

  • Hormonal changes: significant fluctuations in oestrogen and progesterone can disrupt the body's natural circadian rhythm
  • Night sweats: a common symptom of menopause is night sweats, which can disturb sleep and cause us to wake up during the night
  • Psychological factors: Depression, anxiety and stress, which are common accompaniments of menopause, can negatively affect sleep quality
  • Medical conditions: certain medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, thyroid disease or asthma can also affect insomnia in the menopause
  • Taking certain medications

What can be the consequences of insomnia?

Changes in sleep patterns during the menopause can have a significant impact on the quality of women's daily lives, leading to a reduced ability to carry out daily tasks and negative effects on physical and mental health. In addition, chronic insomnia can weaken the immune system and increase the risk of developing chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases.

That's why it's crucial that menopausal insomnia is properly addressed and ways to improve sleep quality are found.

The effect of CBD on insomnia in menopause

CBD works by binding to endocannabinoid receptors in our body. These receptors are part of the endocannabinoid system, which has a very important function in our body. Some of the bodily functions regulated by the endocannabinoid system include sleep, memory, appetite, pain and inflammation, mood and even reproduction. It could be said that the endocannabinoid system is the conductor of our organism, making sure that all the elements of the orchestra work in harmony.

CBD has been shown to help relieve insomnia symptoms

CBD drops have been shown to improve sleep, mainly due to their calming effect and reduction of feelings of anxiety. The positive impact of CBD cannabinoid on stress and anxiety has been proven in several scientific studies, and the beneficial effects of CBD drops on insomnia have also been testified by numerous positive testimonials from CBD product users worldwide.

We particularly recommend Amber CBD drops, for which we receive an overwhelming number of positive reviews and responses when our customers share their experiences with this unpleasant condition.

Please note: The dosage of CBD products is individual and specific to each person, as our endocannabidoid systems differ in their need for and response to CBD extract intake.

Other techniques for better managing insomnia

In addition to pharmacological treatments, there are other techniques that can help manage insomnia in the menopause. Some of these include:

  • Lifestyle changes (regular physical activity, balanced diet, reduction of caffeine and alcohol intake).
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Promoting a healthy sleep environment and sleep hygiene (give up the phone before bedtime, keep room temperature to 19.4 degrees, eat food at least one hour before bedtime, turn off all lights)
  • Sound and music therapy (listening to relaxing music or nature sounds before bed can help create a calming environment for better sleep)
