Sleep Better at Night and Get Rid of Inner Distress With Dr. Khanita Suvarnasuddhi

During times of uncertainty, how can we get better sleep and get rid of all that inner stress? Sleeping better goes with pain management of all kinds. In this week's episode, Dr. Khanita Suvarnasuddhi will give helpful insights into how you can free yourself from inner distress so you can sleep better, function better, and be happy. This is going to be great for everybody who wants to understand a little more about how to relieve inner distress.

Khanita Suvarnasuddhi is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Doctor of Chiropractic in the State of Maryland. She is the founder of Araya Holistic Pain Management, an integrative wellness center within the community of Clarksburg, MD. There's a lot of wisdom behind her. She's married, has a cute little dog, and a great life. If you're curious about what her belief is around inner distress and how it affects our sleep, she does a lot of qigong exercises. Qigong's gentle movements help to move blood and oxygen around the body, nourishing the organs and tissues promoting healing. In addition, due to the mind's connection to the breath and physical movements, qigong helps calm the mind, relieving emotional stress and mental anxiety.

“We all have a message that is healing and uplifting.” – Dianne A. Allen 

Her background is in chiropractic, a traditional Chinese medicine that includes acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and martial arts since she was twelve years old. The health benefits of martial arts propelled her to explore more of it. Whether you believe it or not, some things are changing in your body and specific postures. You feel the energy kind of go to certain places and be in that alignment where the energy flows freely throughout your body. Whenever you're stuck, you'll feel and quickly notice it.

Interestingly, our organs have a circadian rhythm. Some people that deal with grief when they lose someone wake up at a certain time. So, the lung organ is associated with grief. This happens to a lot of people dealing with loss as they wake up between three to five in the morning. You don't get the same quality of sleep after eleven in the evening. The quality is different when you sleep before that time versus sleeping after eleven or midnight. Even if you wake up eight or nine hours later, the quality is not the same. So, sleeping before eleven in the evening is crucial and that improves the quality of your sleep. 

Another thing is consuming snacks after eight in the evening. What happens biochemically is that it triggers other responses like the sugar level going up and that keeps us awake. Intermittent fasting is also helpful because it gives our digestive system enough time to clean up stuff. Remember, don't eat too late and don't sleep too late.

“Dare to step outside of the box and I will lead the way.” – Dianne A. Allen 

There are many things that you can do to establish sleep hygiene. And it's not as hard to do as you might think. Try working these five habits into your evening for better sleep.

  • Try not to look at your computer screen before you go to bed. 
  • Do some stretching.
  • Read something interesting. (Or if you have kids, read a storybook with them.)
  • Keep the temperature a little cooler at night.
  • Meditation routines

If there's something you need help with in terms of healing, contact Dr. Khanita. And remember, put your face to the sun, so the shadows fall behind you. You're a rockstar and you are here on purpose with a purpose. Let's all go out there, move and create the beautiful life you're meant to create.
