Trouble Sleeping

March 11, 2014 5:24:19 PM EDT

Trouble Sleeping, or is it all in your head? 

Daylight savings time is a reminder that even just one hour of sleep can make a huge difference for many of us.  While experts say it only takes about a day to adjust to one hour in time change, for some it takes longer.  The truth is that trouble sleeping in America is widespread, with far more complex causes than a simple time change.  In fact, the Center for Disease Control describes "insufficient sleep" as a "public health epidemic.  Recent health news articles advise that insufficient sleep can lead to other health problems, including more serious ones.  While the known causes for our trouble sleeping are numerous, new research from Johns Hopkins University suggests that the problem may be in our heads, quite literally.  The study found that the brains of people with trouble sleeping have more adaptable structures and more excitable neurons.  This quick and constant processing of information may be one of the reasons why people cannot sleep.

Cold weather joint pain

Homeopathic relief from cold weather joint pain symptoms

If you're reading this, chances are you, or someone you know has experienced an increase in joint or muscle pain when the weather changes.  It's also likely that the person experiencing the pain is over 40.  While many complain of arthritis flaring up or joint pain when it rains, it's also true that joint pain can increase when the weather turns cold.  Turns out this relationship between cold weather and joint pain is more than an "old wive's tale."  There is mounting scientific evidence to support the notion.  How?  Cold weather can shrink tissue causing it to pull on nerves and cause pain.  And as we age our connective tissue can become less elastic, suggesting that the older we get, the more we notice it.
