Insomnia may be characterized based on its duration. Acute insomnia is brief and often happens because of life circumstances such as the night before an exam, or after receiving stressful news. Many people may have experienced this type of passing sleep disruption, and it tends to resolve without any treatment. However, if you are experiencing chronic insomnia which occurs at least three nights per week and lasts at least three months you may be desperately looking for a solution. What we do know is that low hormones can increase anxiety and sleep disturbances leading to this life altering chronic insomnia syndrome. The shifting ratios of hormones during menopause and andropause causes this inability to get a good night's rest. HRT has been found to help both men and women regain sleep. At Hormone Therapy of Orlando we have experienced great success with our patients by using a combination of both (HRT) and growth hormone peptides for re-establishing sleep. Growth hormone positively impacts the REM sleep cycle. REM is when your brain and body are energized and dreaming occurs. This sleep cycle is very important for rejuvenation and age management. Through a simple blood test we can see if you are good candidate for this therapy.
