Have you, like so many people, tried everything to get to sleep? Insomnia is epidemic now, yet there are simple and effective nutritional solutions that many health practitioners overlook. Our staff nutritionists have successfully provided these solutions, based on the techniques described in Julia Ross' best selling book, The Mood Cure, to thousands of clients over the past 15 years.
Effective sleep solutions depend on the correct identification of each insomniac's unique sleep challenges. The first step to solving your sleep mystery is to determine which specific type of insomnia you have. There are several types, and you could have more than one!
We tailor our recommendations for supplements, food, and lifestyle to your specific type(s) of insomnia based on your responses to this questionnaire and on the other information that we gather in our thorough intake process. We often factor in the results of targeted lab testing. All this, and our experience with thousands of insomniacs, allows us to promptly recognize which nutrients will most effectively target specific sleep problems and put you peacefully to sleep.
A 46 yr old man came to see us about the fact that he was only getting 4-5hrs of sleep per night. This had been going on for 26 years. He would have a hard time falling asleep, laying in bed for hours even though he felt relaxed and sleepy. He also had a hard time staying asleep, waking around 3am and having a hard time getting back to sleep. Once we had his adrenal test results in hand, we created an initial program for him and adjusted it over the following 6 weeks. He got better each week and by the end of 6 weeks he was falling asleep easily and staying asleep through the whole night. One important feature of his particular insomnia cure was his need for dietary blood sugar regulation. On a scale of 1-10, the severity of his insomnia had gone from a 10 to a 2.
Our staff has identified the nutritional solutions to these three and several other causes of sleep disturbance. See Julia Ross' influential article on this subject, originally published in the Townsend Letter: Our methods quickly correct both brain neurotransmitter imbalances and adrenal overdrive (the most overlooked cause of severe insomnia).
