It’s not all in your head! Although insomnia can be triggered by stress, many struggle to stay asleep because of imbalances in the endocrine system. The endocrine system governs metabolism and energy; too much thyroid hormone in the body (hyperthyroidism) can speed up metabolism and cause some to feel jittery or hyperactive. Make note of any patterns and ask a physician for advice. Balance can be restored through natural and medical treatments, relieving insomnia and helping patients feel better according to Dr. Tim Nguyen of the Atlanta Integrative Medical Center.
