An imbalance in your cortisol levels can make you feel like your body is constantly alert and stressed. Cortisol is released by the body to relieve stress, especially in the evenings. Healthy individuals have high cortisol levels in the morning and the levels drop progressively throughout the day.
The cortisol levels become heightened in the evening when there is an imbalance in cortisol. This makes you feel more active and energetic in the evening than in the morning. Long-term insomnia can lead to serious health issues such as heart disease. Therefore, it’s important to detoxify to rebalance your cortisol levels.
