Wired But Tired: Summary

Have you ever been wired but tired? Detective Ev engages in an insightful discussion with Annika Carroll, an FDN practitioner specialized in sleep and the founder of Sleep Like a Boss. They discuss how underlying health issues like gut issues, hormonal imbalance, and stress contribute to sleep disorders and how these can be addressed.

The conversation further explores the impact of food sensitivities, light and temperature management, hormones, and stress level on sleep quality. They also dive into how functional medicine can improve sleep issues with real-life testimonials from patients who have managed to enhance their sleep through targeted health interventions.

Key speaker points include the importance of good sleep for overall health, the connection between gut health and sleep, blood sugar regulation impact on sleep, and practical ways to improve sleep quality such as managing room temperature, diet adjustments, regulating light exposure, and considering separate sleeping arrangements for couples struggling with sleep issues. 

Throughout the conversation, they emphasize the need for individual-centered approaches considering the unique health conditions and sleep patterns of each person.
