Ah sleep… something we all seem to struggle with at some time or other. Statistics show that sleep problems and deprivation is one of the highest health concerns of our stress out society. Insomnia is one of the most common conditions we see at Gaia Health Care.

Here are some quick tips to get you sleeping better:

Liver activity is up-regulated at night to detox our daily intakes of exhaust fumes and that extra coffee you needed to have today. A liver detox can help reduce the frequency of waking at night.

Meditation before bed can be key to helping you unwind at night. Turn off the TV, turn down the lights and play some soft music before bed to help fall asleep more quickly.

Testing your cortisol/melatonin ratio can provide insights into why your so tired.

There are many Naturopathic remedies can help you deal with stress and diminish sleep disturbances.
