How I Successfully Address Insomnia!

How I Successfully Address Insomnia!

When you are sleeping, your body is healing and your pineal gland is producing melatonin which is one of the most powerful antioxidants that your body produces.

If you suffer from insomnia, you need to address specific organ function and support them nutritionally. The protocols that I have listed below are adapted from Chinese Medicine and I can tell you personally that they work! I suffered for many years with insomnia before I discovered these protocols.

If you are unable to fall asleep, usually, it is a problem with your gall bladder. You will need to increase your gall bladder meridian by supporting it nutritionally. I recommend a product from Premier Research Labs (PRL) called BiliVen. Usually 4-6 day with meals will do the trick. (BiliVen and all of the other supplements mentioned are available at www.drjsupplements.com)

If you have trouble staying asleep and/or you wake up in the middle of the night and you are unable to fall back to sleep, usually that is a problem with your stomach meridian. You will need to increase your stomach meridian by increasing your stomach acid. As we age, our ability to produce stomach acid decreases. Emotional stress also causes a decrease in stomach acid. If you are suffering from acid reflux, you don’t have too much stomach acid, you have too little! You are not digesting your food so lactic acid is forming and that is what is refluxing into your esophagus.
I usually recommend HCL and HCL Activator from PRL (2-4 HCL depending on patient size and 1-2 HCL Activator after every meal. Severe insomniacs may need to take it before bed too.) There are times when a patient is very sensitive and they may react adversely to HCL/HCL Activator so I put them on a product called GastroVen for 4-6 weeks to help heal their gut.

If you wake up in the morning extremely groggy or you have difficulty getting out of bed, you have a problem with your adrenal gland meridian. You need to support your adrenal glands with B-Vitamins (Max B-ND from PRL), Pink Salt, ½ your body weight in good, high-quality water daily, and either 4-6 AdreneVen or Adaptogen R-3 from PRL.

As a great over-all, general sleep aid, I recommend PRL’s natural-source Melatonin, NADH and Tranquinol right before bed.

Unfortunately, most of the melatonin on the market today is synthetic and will case insomnia which is why I only use PRL’s Melatonin.

NADH is a coenzyme found naturally in all living cells of the human body. NADH is also called Coenzyme 1 because it is top-ranked over all other coenzymes, including the famous Coenzyme Q-10. NADH is the abbreviation for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, and directly aids in ATP or energy production in the cell.
Finally, Tranquinol is a unique, botanical formula that promotes deep restful sleep.
