Integrative Gastroenterology (Weil Integrative Medicine Library)

Have you ever noticed that so many parts of our body and health are connected? That's the case in this example. Dr. Marvin Singh discusses the role sleep plays in our gut health and how that, in turn, can affect our brain health and more! Learn the connection and another example of the importance of quality sleep!

How To Get The Sleep You Need

By: Charles Elliot

It is estimated that 35% of adults and 50% of seniors in America do not get enough sleep which sets them up for serious health consequences i.e. high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, stroke and of course mental stress.

As usual, Big Pharma has synthetic drugs which come with side effects and most important severe addiction. Withdrawal from Valium, Ambien etc. is so bad that doing so can actually kill you. And it’s a catch 22 because if you make the decision to stay on these drugs rather than risk an excruciating withdrawal, it is almost guaranteed to lead to dementia. Also, these dangerous drugs eventually stop working as you build up a tolerance to them. So if sleeplessness is ruining the quality of your life, then by all means it is crucial for you to look at natural substances for relief.

Just like so many other health issues, some natural cures work and some are pure garbage. Since I am one of the 50% of seniors who have severe sleep problems, I have done a vast amount of research into what nature has to offer to insomniacs. The time I’ve put into this problem has led me to discover genuine relief from a combination of natural sleep aids.

Melatonin is the hormone made by your pineal gland that controls your sleep and wake cycles. It should be taken an hour before going to bed. For best results, stay away from any light source i.e. television, cell phones etc. during that hour.

Magnesium is a mineral that most people are lacking in sufficient amounts. It leads to relaxation and quality sleep.

Theanine promotes a sense of calm and is especially effective in quieting the mind.

Essential herbs that contribute to a good night’s sleep include Chamomile, Passionflower, Lemon Balm, Valerian Root and Hops (not beer). These herbs act synergistically to promote relaxation and a deeper sleep. It’s important to include all of them for maximum efficacy.

Try to find a brand that contains all or at least most of these ingredients. Then see if these aids enable you to get at least seven hours of restorative sleep


 Being a lifelong insomniac, I have studied this inside and out. I wish I knew all this back when. Discovering these natural cures have made all the difference for me!
