How To Get More Sleep During Menopause For Thicker Hair

Two Ways Chinese Medicine Can Help You Sleep Better During Menopause

And today we're talking about how to get the SEVEN or more hours of sleep you need every night to prevent or reverse thinning hair during & after menopause.

The good news is... Chinese medicine has a long history of helping women sleep better...

And there are two parts to the Chinese Medicine approach.

Part 1 - Good Sleep Habits


Have a regular bedtime - so go to sleep and wake up at the same time each day.  And avoid looking at blue light for an hour before bedtime by using blue light blocking glasses or avoiding computer screens. 


Make your bedroom more sleep friendly by keeping the temperature cool.  Also make sure it's REALLY dark when you're sleeping, as this allows your body to make more melatonin - a sleep hormone


Use natural sleep aids if necessary.  Check with your healthcare practitioner about using melatonin, magnesium, CBD, or Chinese Herbs.  (I recommend avoiding sleeping pills or antihistamines for regular use.)


Give essential oils a try.  Some women find using essential oils at bedtime extremely helpful!  Lavender, sandalwood, cedar, and chamomile are some of my favorites.

Part 2 - Correct The Underlying Hormonal Imbalance

If your difficulty sleeping started - or got WORSE - during menopause... It might be due to hormonal changes and imbalance.  

If you can correct that underlying hormonal imbalance... Your sleep can improve to the point where you no longer need to worry nearly as much about good sleep habits, because when you lie down, you sleep.  (And I can tell you from personal experience, there's nothing better then regaining trust in your ability to sleep!) 

There's not always a quick fix for this, but I help women with this all the time.  It's possible. 

Here's my recipe for healthy, happy hormones that help you get solid sleep each night.  


Get on the right diet for your hormones + Manage stress + Reduce your toxic load (by avoiding hormone-disrupting chemicals) + include key supplements.  This sets the stage - in your body -. for hormonal balance


Once you've set the stage, use customized Chinese Herbs to target sleep-specific hormonal issues.  Because whether you have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, sleeping deeply, are woken up by heat & sweating, or stress & a busy mind are keeping you awake...  Chinese herbal medicine has formulas targeted at helping your body rebalance each of these specific patterns. 

I'm so passionate about helping you to quickly and easily start doing everything I mentioned above to rebalance your hormones.... That I've created resources to help you with each step!
