Throughout my health posts I will be dedicating a large portion of articles toward all types of remedies for helping people achieve a better nights’ sleep. What works for one may not work for another but each herb or remedy discussed will have some link to a known antidote for sleeplessness. The topic of sleepless nights is heavy on my heart as I have struggled with a broken sleep pattern for the last 5 years. I have personally seen many doctors, taken numerous tests and tried countless remedies. I have had a measure of success from different supplements, sleeping regimes, nutritional initiatives, and more. I plan to offer effective ‘sleep engaging’ information for all readers who struggle with this issue and pray that along the way you will find deep joyful relaxation and peaceful sleep.
Whatever you choose to try of the natural and herbal remedies it is suggested that you give it time to work. The optimal results may not be achieved overnight but the very best outcome will prevail with consistent and daily application.
This information and the remedies suggested are in no way to be interpreted as a cure or prescription for the issues addressed.

Modern-day living and all the busy-ness and stress that comes along with it can do a real number on your central nervous system, especially if you are not taking proactive steps to counteract the negative effects on your body. Rather than feed energy and nutrients into your body’s productive systems, an overtaxed nervous system typically […]
Yesterday’s post, ‘Lemon Balm; Part One’ was discovering that Lemon Balm has mild sedative properties. It helps with all types of ailments but my focus is as a natural sleep aid.

I recently had a Nutritional Counseling appointment with Denise. I basically needed some reassurance that I was doing ‘everything’ ok. Sometimes when we are not perfect with our daily consumption of food and supplements we think we are not making a difference. I explained my personal situation with her and she reassured me that I was doing a great job. Denise also provided me with some great advice that will help benefit my overall health both now and the future.Paulette K
