Trouble sleeping?


Having trouble sleeping? Try these proven bedtime rituals for a night that will leave you feeling refreshed and recharged. Your day will be so much brighter!

·      wait 2-3 hours since your last meal. Eat a light meal and choose complex carbs like brown rice, quinoa or millet over protein, since they have sleep-promoting qualities. Avoid sugar and alcohol.

·      shut down all electronic devices 1 hour before bed as their blue light mimics the effect of the sun and hinders your melatonin production which is crucial for sleep.
 
·      make your bedroom a sanctuary: remove the clutter (especially under the bed), change sheets weekly, only keep items you like, no electronics and fitness appliances and no work!

·      have a ritual: give yourself a massage with warm sesame or coconut oil, take a warm bath with lavender essential oil and epsom salts, read a fiction book, listen to soft music, light a candle, etc. whatever helps you wind down.

·      sip a bedtime tea infused with herbs like chamomile, lavender, hops, valeriana, or passionflower.

·      wear comfortable pajamas, preferably in a breathing material like cotton.

·      air your bedroom and keep the temperature cool.

·      make your room completely dark and quiet. Wear an eye mask, use ear plugs, and a white noise machine if needed.

·      remove all electronic devices to avoid EMFs (no cell phone in bed, switch it to airplane mode) and turn off your wifi.
 
·      say your gratitudes and write down any action items on a pad that you keep near your bed to empty your mind.

·      meditate for a few minutes: sit or lie down, relaxing every part of your body. Focus on your breath and body sensations. Inhale to the count of 4 and exhale to the count of 6. Repeat until you fall asleep.

 
Sleep is crucial for many body functions: it supports memory, increases longevity, reduces stress and heart problems, and enhances metabolism.

Remember that we carry the energy of our day into the night, so try to keep your day peaceful. You can also use natural sleeping aids such as a magnesium, omega 3 or vitamin D supplement, herbs, homeopathy, aromatherapy or Back flowers if all else fails.

If you still cannot sleep despite all these tips, there may be a medical issue underlying that needs your attention. I often find in my practice that when the guts are damaged, so is the brain. Healing your guts will go a long way towards improving the quality of your sleep.

Got Gluten-ed?





















Despite all the precautions I take when eating out by choosing restaurants who pride themselves in using local, organic, sustainable ingredients and offer gluten-free options, I recently suffered from gluten exposure. I got "glutened" through cross-contamination at one of my favorite restaurants. Aside from the immediate reaction (tongue swelling, bloating, cramping), I also endured various side effects (headache, acne, fatigue, insomnia, etc.) for many days afterwards, which lowered my immunity to the point of catching a nasty cold days later that I am still recovering from.

To counter-act the damaging effect of gluten on my guts, my favorite go-to cures include Nature's Way Charcoal, Activated right after exposure, to first remove the poison or offender. I wait a couple of hours since charcoal absorbs everything on its way, and then take 3 pellets of homeopathic Boiron - Histaminum Hydrochlo 30c, 30c, 80 pellets and Bluebonnet Super Quercetin - 90 Vegetarian Capsules.

Over the following days, I drink anti-inflammatory Pukka Herbal Teas Three Ginger Caffeine Free, 20 Count and Numi Organic Tea Turmeric Blends Sampler (Pack of 3) teas, and  Traditional Medicinals Teas Organic Throat Coat Tea, 16 Bags which contain licorice, marshmallow root, slippery elm. I take plenty of Garden of Life Primal Defense ULTRA, 60 Capsules , Garden of Life - Omega Zyme Ultra Ultimate Digestive Enzyme Blend and Nordic Naturals - Ultimate Omega, 1000 mg, 60 softgels.  I also add  NOW Foods L-Glutamine Pure Powder, 1-Pound , NOW Foods - Chlorella Pure Powder Certified Organic , Now Foods, ORGANIC SPIRULINA POWDER, 1LB and Lily Of The Desert - 100% Organic Whole Leaf Aloe Vera Juice - 32 oz. in my smoothies, drink bone broth, green juice and soups and get plenty of rest.

How do you cope with the symptoms?
