#1 Effective Insomnia, Sleep Problem Tonic

Sleep problems are on the rise.That's because many of us are stressed. Our adrenaline is always revved up and we don't seem to know how to turn off all the gadgets that we have become attached to.

Your bedroom should really be a no gadget zone. The only things you should have in there for convenience is

Selective gadgets

  • phone
  • alarm clock with a dimmer
  • TV with a timer

The problem is we don't have a set sleep pattern or bedtime and that tends to aggravate any sleep disorders.

A lot of people talk about sleeping but many people don't rest. Which means they don't get into the REM sleep mode that promotes healing and good health.

There is also the suggestion that we limit late night activities, like eating to hours before actually going to sleep. This allows our body to shut down without any artificial or natural stimulus.

Our built in sleep timers and patterns are in sync with the sun, with it's setting and it's rising. Therefore when we don't obey them our bodies tend to push through what comes as a natural sleep pattern, which kinds of switches signals on and off in the brain. Causing us to require less sleep or not get as deep a sleep as we need for all our natural body functions which includes healing and repair at it's deepest cellular level.
