At Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus, we are always stressing the importance of sleep. We want to help everyone get a good nights sleep and one way we try to help is by spreading awareness. I was delighted to see Marilyn Denis shed some light on this huge problem as 74% of Canadians suffer from some sort of sleep disturbance.
Here is a little recap of what happened today on the Marilyn Denis show:
Marilyn talked to her Natropath on the show and they discussed all the different type of sleep problems people have. Don’t just take any supplement find the right combination based on your symptoms.
Do you have trouble falling asleep?
If this is you take Magnesium and Passion Flower. My favourite Magnesium is Lorna Vanderhaeghe MagSmart. It is in a form that does not cause diarrhea, but will have you sleeping like a baby. Magnesium helps to calm and relax the body and mind. Passion flower works very well with magnesium also for calming and relaxing. Dr. Oz also recommended Passion Flower back in 2011. The New Roots brand is excellent as an example.
Do you have trouble staying asleep?
RELORA is not only good for belly FAT loss, but also is the magical one for helping us stay asleep. You are not alone if you wake up at 2am or 4am. This is attributed to the ugly stress in our life whether it is something small such as you forgot to do the laundry that day or huge like you cannot pay your morgage. To get you sleeping through the night it is recommended to take Relora and Ashwagandha which is an Indian Ginseng. Relora was just recommended on the Dr. Oz Show February 20th as well.
Do you have trouble with snoring?
Sometimes it is due to the body being inflammed with mucous. Try doing a cleanse to remove excess mucous and inflammation. Also Respiractin is a fantastic natural supplement that will have you breathing clearly in no time.
Are you waking up too early?
This is caused usually by low seratonin levels in the brain and is very common in women. Supplements you can take:
- Fish Oil (Alive Brand Ultra Concentrate One a Day)
- Vitamin D (Sisu Sublingual 1000 iu)
- Inositol (Alive Brand)
- 5-HTP (Alive Brand)
Do you feel anxious at night?
- GABA (Natural Factors has a chewable one and AOR also makes an excellent one)
- Magnesium also helps to relieve tension and anxiety
Do you suffer from Menopause and Insomnia?
This can be caused by low levels of Progesterone (basically hormone imbalance). For this Lorna Vanderhaeghe (the authority in womens health and hormones) has an excellent line called her Smart Line. EstroSmart, ThyroSmart and AdrenaSmart are all ways to help balance the bodies hormones naturally.
