If you want to stabilize your MS more than anything, restful sleep is a fundamental thing for me. It is important to respect a sleep time of between 7 and 9 hours. During the event on the 20th day of sleep, Dr Marc REY, neurologist specializing in sleep and president of the National Institute for Sleep and Vigilance, indicated that: "sleeping well allows you to recharge your batteries after a day, but it also helps stimulate the nervous system, boost memory, strengthen its immune system, improve cardiovascular health, increase alertness and regulate metabolism and therefore avoid overweight. ”(Source journal des femmes )
Throughout my pregnancy, my sleep was disrupted by hormonal changes, contractions and other symptoms of pregnancy. Hidden in the midst of all these evils, without knowing it, I had therefore had a push. It is almost obligatory this one. I did it during my pregnancy, but other women can do it after giving birth. This is also why neurologists will have an alarmist discourse if you submit the desire to have one or more children because we cannot know the consequence of a relapse before having done so.
When my son arrived, I accumulated the impromptu awakenings in the middle of the night and, undeniably, the lack of sleep. When I woke up, I had terrible pain in my head. I did not yet know the magic product cbd, I discovered it much later. At that time, I had to endure the pains, the burns (head and / or legs), the tingling in the limbs (which I put up with the best, for my part), the blockages in my knee while walking, it made me feel better. even happened to fall.
I can now say that I am rid of all the symptoms I just mentioned thanks to the cbd and all the routines I have put in place. It was my mom who started talking to me about it, after seeing a show that talked about MS and other autoimmune diseases. Then, over time, my son started sleeping through the night. It was time to recharge the batteries ...
Easier said than done, MS usually causes big worries of sleeplessness as well as nocturnal awakenings.
And then, through research and reading (which I will relay to you in my next articles), I have put in place rituals and routines that will save you a considerable amount of time.
My first piece of advice for you to find a peaceful and serene sleep is to give yourself time to accomplish yourself and be fully satisfied with your day.
You are going to tell me: “It still has to be possible!” I will tell you that anything is possible, you just have to allow yourself! Take 45 minutes or even 1 hour of your day (even if it's after your work) to take care of yourself without feeling guilty. This can be done through a creative activity (sewing, cooking, etc.) and / or through a sports activity (Yoga, Tai Chi, QI Gong or even hiking to breathe in nature). We will see in a future article the effects of exercise on MS and I can tell you that there are many, especially since exercise also contributes to restful sleep.
Note, however, it is important to know that you must refrain from exercising too late (3-4 hours before bedtime) as this will interfere with falling asleep.
According to Suzanne Cariant, sports coach, “body temperature changes throughout the day. While it rises in the morning when you wake up, it decreases in the evening to prepare for bedtime and call for sleep, so in the evening the body must be able to lower its tension. We therefore avoid the big running session at 10 p.m., she explains. After 8 p.m., we refrain from typical cardio-endurance sessions (fitness, crossfit, HIIT, Tabata, etc.) which raise the heart rate, the ideal range for these sports would be between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Yoga, and all types of soft sports, can be practiced without problem after 8 p.m. SOURCE (Doctissimo) After 8 p.m., I recommend a specific type of yoga, Yoga Nidra, which is really perfect and recommended, even in Ayurveda, to make it easier to fall asleep.
My second tip is to take a bath (or, failing that, a shower).
“By examining and comparing 5,322 studies on the influence of hot water on sleep, researchers at the University of Texas (USA) found that taking a hot bath an hour and a half before going to sleep. bedtime accelerated the speed of falling asleep by an average of 10 minutes and considerably improved the quality of sleep ”(SOURCE: Journal des Femmes).
If you want to put the odds in your favor, you can add essential oils or bath salts to your bath which will accentuate the effects of the warm water.
high, with plants that will promote your sleep
For example, 2 drops of essential oil of shell marjoram or lavender bath salts.
My third tip is to eat light but enough at night.
So as not to feel heavy while feeling satiety anyway.
Ideally (I will tell you more about this in a future article), I would recommend a so-called non-inflammatory diet.
This will prevent all sources of pain and inflammation in the brain. If you want to skip food, you can still take CBD oil for these same symptoms, but I can't recommend it enough because CBD treats the symptoms while diet treats the cause of the symptoms. problem.
CBD oil also promotes sleep, but it also promotes constipation. So I advise you to keep the oil in case of pain and to test the other alternatives for sleep.
My fourth tip: herbal tea.
It is the little help that promotes relaxation and brings you real well-being for natural sleep.
I opted for the CBD - Sleep Herbal Tea composed of many plants including Valerian, promoting sleepiness and organic fruits for a naturally sweet taste. It will be perfect to help you find a deep and restful sleep.
The good thing is that it doesn't cause constipation and tastes absolutely delicious. You can find some here.
Passion flower, lavender, lemon balm are also plants that promote sleep.
My fifth tip: massage.
Consume the massage without moderation. If you have the option of having a massage, for total letting go, it is even better, if not, do it yourself!
After all, "You are never so well served by yourself": D
You have the option of massaging only the painful areas or the whole body. Make sure you adapt the right product as needed.
If you want to massage the whole body (well almost!), Asabio Body Oil has the ideal texture, it is also perfect if you have inflammation.
You will have a real moment of relaxation with its intoxicating scent, moreover, it quickly relieves pain and leaves the skin very soft.
I also liked that it was an oil that only contains products from organic farming.
If you want to apply it only to the painful areas, I recommend using the cbd balm, what I appreciate is its practicality. It soothes burns, so it's great if you're going on vacation (especially sunburns and mosquito bites). It is multi-purpose and also has a top top composition !!!
My sixth tip: The socks and the hot water bottle
Hard to fall asleep with cold extremities! So, if like me, you are prone to cold hands and feet at night (Vata profile for those to whom this speaks ;-)), I recommend good socks in merino fabrics, they are the best on the market as well as 'a good hot water bottle. Me, I opted for a beautiful artisanal dry hot water bottle made from rice, it is in flax fiber and oeko-tex cotton. One minute in the microwave and presto, voila! I'm really happy with it, especially since it's removable cover, which greatly facilitates maintenance.
I would be curious to know your little secrets or if you already know the products.
Do not hesitate to give us a feedback.
