Can Insomnia Be Addressed With Natural Supplements?

What Is Insomnia?

Insomnia is an inability to fall asleep and/or remain asleep for 6-8 hours per night. It’s an exasperating condition, as the mind continues to race, often about the patient’s own lack of sleep, further exacerbating the original problem. We’ve all experienced sleeplessness as a natural result of excitement or important life events, but unfortunately, millions of people have chronic insomnia, seemingly disconnected from any life events, but nonetheless insidious and recurring.

What Are The Symptoms of Insomnia?

Symptoms of insomnia include difficulty falling asleep, difficulty finding a comfortable sleeping position, waking during the night and being unable to return to sleep, feeling un-refreshed upon waking, daytime irritability or even anxiety. The lack of sleep appears to have a cumulative effect on most people, gradually growing worse, and exhibiting more and more acute symptoms of sleeplessness.

Is There a Root Cause for Insomnia?

Several things can contribute to chronic sleeplessness, and that’s part of the problem. Since so many different things can disrupt our fairly tentative sleep cycles, it’s a difficult problem to address. Many people suffering from insomnia will resort to prescription or even illegal drug remedies, and this surely leads to higher rates of mortality than people who avoid drugs.

Is There Anything Natural That Can Be Done For Insomnia?

Yes, but it needs to be clear that supplements will not cure or treat the root cause of your insomnia, but simply support your body nutritionally, and help it achieve a state of sleep-readiness. This protocol is aimed at calming the brain enough that it can fall asleep as naturally as it did in your childhood. It will quiet the mind and rest the body without side effects or hangover.

  • The protocol above is designed to address your issues at the foundational level, and not to treat disease. This means, in our opinion, most of our health problems, short of accident or trauma, are of a dietary nutritional deficiency. The listed protocol or supplement provides your body with essential micro and macronut­­­­rients to help and assist normal nutritional balance.
  • Daily dosage are in ( ) parenthesis for most protocols; for example (6) means take 6 per day, but spread it out by taking half in the morning and half in the evening. Some protocols will have more specific instructions to follow.
  • MediHerb products, shown in italics, often speed healing response and should be considered for most protocols unless contraindicated.
  • We recommend adding the General Health Daily Fundamentals pack to each protocol. This adds in the critical foundational nutrition each protocol needs. It contains Catalyn––an entirely whole-food and glandular broad-spectrum multivitamin, Trace Minerals-B12, and Tuna Omega-3 pearls for your DHA and EPA omega 3 fatty acids daily requirements.
  • Spacing out the daily doses throughout the day improves absorption and is strongly recommended.
  • Most supplements should be taken with food except for PMG’s, most calcium products, Gastrex, Chlorophyll Complex™, Okra Pepsin E3, Cholocol II and Zymex II. Also, most herbs work more efficiently if taken away from food.
  • Be advised that these nutritional and herbal products are not intended as a primary therapy for any disease, but rather to provide nutritional and herbal support to help normalize body physiology and repair.
