Alcohol Impacts Sleep

Alcohol prevents body to recuperate through sleep

Prior research has demonstrated that the sleep cycles through many stages at an interval of 90 minutes and that deep sleep occurs in the second half of a person’s sleep cycle. Unfortunately, the process of filtering and expelling alcohol clashes with the occurrence of deep sleep. When the body is tasked with clearing excessive toxins from the system, it significantly affects its ability to get some rest through sleep.

Since alcohol is a central nervous system (CNS) depressant, it has the ability to slow down brain functions and disrupt the functioning of nerve cells. This property of alcohol is demonstrated when a person loosens up and loses control over his or her finer motor skills shortly after drinking alcohol.

Because CNS depressants diminish stress and induce a state of calmness, individuals indulging in drinking experience chronic stress or the frequent bouts of anxiety are more susceptible to drinking alcohol. This not only reduces the quality of their life but also worsens their psychiatric symptoms in the long run.

Depending on a person’s metabolism and about two hours after his or her first drink, the body initiates the process of flushing out the alcohol from the system. When one consumes alcohol, it is viewed as a toxin by the body. This signals the egesting mechanism to rev up that extracts water from cells and discharges the stored alcohol via the kidneys and the bladder. These involuntarily nighttime activities can significantly lower the quality of sleep.

Alcohol also affects the production of the body’s antidiuretic hormones that are essential to control fluid balance by reducing urination. This is why a person who has consumed alcohol is found to take multiple trips to the bathroom. However, he or she may not be aware that a full bladder results in losing more electrolytes and a higher likelihood of disrupted sleep.

A combination of all these factors can lead to grogginess, lethargy and irritation. A person is likely to take a longer duration to reach the state of wakefulness. In addition, a person who experiences frequent disruption of sleep tends to be more exhausted and dehydrated, and displays a weaker cognitive functioning. Therefore, even if a person uses alcohol as a means to fall asleep, it does not unnecessarily guarantee that it will be a good solution.

Detoxing to get rid of alcohol

Individuals who are dependent on alcohol are at a risk of developing a variety of physical and mental health problems. Alcohol can also uniquely affect a person’s sleep pattern that can lead to cognitive impairment, fatigue and worsening of the symptoms of mental disorders. It is advisable to seek immediate medical attention to prevent the problem from getting out of hand. Through an effective detoxification program, which is the stepping-stone to recovery, one can expunge the stored toxins and steadily achieve sobriety.

Spiritual Healing For Insomnia

From a spiritual standpoint, insomnia has an assignment. The Bible tells us that the Lord will not have us ignorant or without lack of information of Satan’s devices. Insomnia is a tool used by the enemy to both physically and spiritually drain you. The enemy knows that if he can get you physically tired by stealing your sleep then he can distract your mind with confusion, lies and temptations.

Many emotions associated with insomnia are confusion, anger, anxiety, irritability and bad-tempered. This spirit comes at night to drain you and deplete you. It’s assignment is to wear you out with stress, anxiety and the cares of this world. Satan’s goal is to keep you in a tired and dysfunctional state so that you are more vulnerable to his attacks.

This is a real problem for many of God’s people and I am seeing a dramatic increase in this tactic. The Word of God tells us in 1 Peter 5:7 to cast all our care upon the Lord because He cares for us. Begin to pinpoint those things in your life that are causing you stress, worry and concern and cast your care on the Lord. He will take them for you because He cares for you.

Before you go to sleep each night pray these scriptures over your life, your children or whomever is suffering from this demonic attack from the enemy.

Understanding that Insomnia is a Spirit working against you gives you the knowledge and understanding you need to get rid of it. I know many will say it’s a medical condition and they want some form of medicine to cure this condition. I mean isn’t that what we always look to heal or cure our ailments?

Some forms of treatment and their side effects for insomnia include:

Causes drowsiness, calmness, and dulled senses. While some types of sedatives may become addictive.

Used to prevent or relieve depression and elevate mood.

Many of these common drugs are used to only “mask” or cover up the underlying problem. We must begin to deal with the root of the issue for a person’s insomnia. When we first begin to locate the root and begin healing from the inside out then we can then effectively deal with the symptoms or the outward signs of Insomnia.

The Word of God tells us that God is our healer and it is His desire for His children to lie down each night in peace and sleep. You can use the following scriptures and speak them each night before you go to sleep. As you are consistent with reading them and giving your cares to God, He will give you sweet sleep every night.

Herbs for Autoimmune Disease

Japanese Knotweed – not well known for immune issued, it really works. This herb is better known for being invasive and treating Lyme. This is one of 2 herbs that are making sensational headlines for being able to allow the body to completely rid itself of all Lyme bacteria and co-current infections. Knotweed does this by reducing inflammation and regulating the immune system. It allows the immune system to peak when fighting something, then to relax when the fight is over. For auto-immune issues, this herb calms the immune system down under normal conditions and allows it to work when an infection strikes.

Turmeric – yup, this super spice is here, too. This herb reduces inflammation by helping the adrenals produce anti-inflammatory hormones. It doesn’t actually stop the inflammation, just works to keep it controlled. Turmeric also protects the body from attacks, including self-attacks. There are also now several studies that shows turmeric can reduce the frequency and intensity of lupus attacks.

Ginger – it helps calm the digestive system and since there is more digestive system than the whole rest of the body combined, that’s a good thing. Ginger also stimulates the body to reduce inflammation and supports proper production of T-cells and other immune components. But, you need to be careful, too much for too long can have reverse effects.
