Ask Dr. Park: Women’s Sleep Issues

In this Ask Dr. Park teleseminar, I talk about common sleep problems that occur in women: insomnia, prementrual issues, pregnancy, and menopause.

Some of the questions I answer include:

– Why are women light sleepers?

– How is sleep different in women compared to men?

– How can I go back to sleep if I wake up in the middle of the night?

– Will estrogen supplements help with sleep?

– What’s the difference between bio-identical and synthetic hormones and how do they affect sleep?

– How does estrogen dominance cause sleep problems?

– What causes throat pain just before your periods?

– How can hypertension and diabetes be prevented during pregnancy?

– Which hormone is responsible for sleep problems during menopause?

– And much more….

  1. I cannot get used to the C-Pap head gear without fear of sufficating, anxiety and crying all the time. I would rather look into surgery that would elimate this. is tht possible? I am 78 and have 2 great-grandchildren I go visit and am fearful of scarring them with this on. It scares the hell out of me! and do not waant to take sleeping pills as they suggested, so will fit me for a full face mask from the nose pillow that are not working because my nose gets stuffy and cannot breathe thru my nowe and have to open my mouth, then the air blows in and I take the mask off and cry.

  2. I will be unable to join the March 13 teleseminar,but am actively trying to solve my snoring issues, so am interested in continuing to learn from you. I have had some frustration with getting reliable medical advice. Thank you for being so knowledgeable and sharing.

  3. For Dorothy Lamb above find a quailfied Buteyko Practioner hopefully with Orofacial Myology that understands dental and airway for a first conservative approach. It may be a multifactorial solution that may help with some results involving, a dentist, orofacial myologist, Buteyko Educator, and perhaps an ENT as well. Don’t give up.
