Insomnia and other sleep disorders is a common malady affecting millions of people. It can take many forms, such as the inability to fall asleep easily; inability to remain asleep; and inability to get back to sleep once awakened.
Like so many conditions, insomnia can have many causes including physical, mental and spiritual. Among the most common are:
- Stress and Anxiety
- Serotinin Deficiency
- Melatonin Deficiency
- Over production of adrenal stress hormones
- Over production of excitatory neurotransmitters
These imbalances can be caused by a combination of:
- Neurological Issues
- Endocrine Issues
- Immunology Issues.
Solutions - Spirit & Mind
Depending on the cause the solutions vary. For some it is a matter of learning how to let go and relax at the end of the day. Allowing oneself to give up control and just fall asleep. For those who are looking for some assistance we recommend our Resources Page. Here we offer a vaiety of aids for Spirit and Mind.
If the issue is emotional stress we recommend The Sedona Method as an overall aid to emotional wellness.
Dr. Forrest also offers individual sessions of the Mind-Release Process to help release unwanted emotional charge from current or past situations. This truly remarkable process has helped many to free themselves from mind created suffering.
Solutions - Nutritional
Many times insomnia and other sleep disorders are related to deficiencies and imbalances in brain neurochemistry. Fortunately there are often solutions to these issues.
The situation usually involves a serotonin deficiency. With this there may also be a melatonin deficiency and sometimes an over stimulation of adrenal stress hormones.
We offer a variety of products to address this situation. We recommend:
Melatonin Nano Plex - Live Source Nanized Melatonin - STAFF FAVORITE
5HTP Supreme from Designs For Health - Raises serotonin levels.
Calm PRT - Highly effective. Helps relax over excited adrenal hormones.
EndoPlus Spray - liposomal oral spray containing theanine and 5-HTP.
Like so many situations you may need to experiment to find just the right solution for yourself.
