Eating & The Impact On Sleep


When you are struggling to get the right amount of sleep at night, life can seem extra challenging. Conditions such as insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and more, can all directly or indirectly affect your sleeping patterns. And, when it comes down to it, even slightly interrupted sleep can have negative consequences on your health. That is why Dr. Jay R. Goldman works so hard to get to the bottom of your issue, and help put you back on the path to restorative sleep. Sometimes, it can come down to your diet, and Psychology Today recently wrote an article, discussing that very subject.

  • Carbohydrates – Studies have shown that diets lower in carbohydrates are linked to increased time spent in slow-wave sleep (restorative stage), while high carb diets result in less time. The piece also mentioned that a high carb meal within four hours of bedtime was associated with reduced sleep latency (the time it takes to fall asleep).
  • Proteins – As one would expect, increased tryptophan levels from protein consumption were shown to improve symptoms of insomnia. These increased levels also were shown to reduce next day sleepiness.

Are you desperately searching for restorative sleep? When you are suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other related issues, that thought can seem impossible. However, Dr. Jay R. Goldman has many treatment possibilities to help you get in the right mindset again. After that, it should only be a matter of time before you see improvements in that all important sleep. Contact Dr. Jay R. Goldman, today, and set up your appointment.
