Do you ever get the “gut” feeling that your stomach does not want to go to bed with you? Are you struggling with sleep and with stomach issues at the same time? If so, this could be just what you needed to read!
I know that a gut and insomnia “connection” may seem a bit far out there, but hang in there a minute, I want to show you how there may indeed be a connection concerning insomnia. Think about it for a moment, symptoms that are linked to the gut can easily be connected to the type of symptoms that could keep anyone up all through the night! Even WebMD posted an article called “Can’t Sleep? It Could Be a Digestive Problem.” In that same article, they also stated that other researchers have come to the same conclusion about the connection that can cause a vicious cycle if not corrected.
Leaky Gut could be associated as well because it is a condition where toxins leak through the intestinal walls and enter the blood stream causing all kinds of symptoms. Having Leaky gut causes damage to the bowel lining which can be caused by antibiotics, toxins, poor diet, parasites, yeast or bad bacteria. Leaky Gut symptoms may also include pain such as headaches, arthritis, and even fibromyalgia. Have you ever been up all night in pain? Pain is a significant reason why someone could suffer insomnia for sure!
Ever tried to go to sleep with the occasional case of the “runs” aka diarrhea? Bet sleeping did not go well that night! Having gut issues like diarrhea is just a one-night thing for most folks, but for people who suffer from gut issues, it could be more of a chronic problem making life stink, no pun intended.
Other Gut Symptoms That Could Keep You Up At Night Are:
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Gas and bloating
