Getting sleep at night is very important for the overall physical, mental and emotional wellness of your body. To work with the pituitary gland and the Krebs cycle of the body ten pm is an ideal time to 'hit the hay'. But what if that brain won't shut down or sleep mode won't kick in? Or dinner is still flip flopping reminders back and forth? Here are some simple assistants for you. The best part is, they are all non narcotic and nourish your system rather than drug it. Nor will they cause the body to produce less of it's own hormones that it needs, such as what happens when one supplements with melatonin types of products.
First on the list is Slumber. The herbs contained within help supply building block nutrients to bring the body down into that all important REM sleep. Without deep REM sleep your body doesn't truly rest, repair or restore. My recommendation is to take one+ per 75 lbs of body weight (so 120 lb person can take two) with water 20 to 30 minutes prior to bedtime. Capsules can be opened and stirred into a bit of vegetable or fruit juice if wanted.
Relax-Eze also can be used for sleep assistance in the same way as slumber. It can be taken before bedtime and can also be taken again in the middle of the night if one should wake up. Several of my clients have also used it to help support their bodies in anxiety, hyperactivity and Restless Legs types of issues. If some of these other issues are challenging in your family I can also direct you to other products for broader coverage if you like. This product can also be used with children at the rate of 1 capsule per 75 lbs (so 1/2 of a capsule for 38 or so lbs, etc).
For the flip flop wont stop stomach I encourage people to try to not eat the last two hours before bedtime, as well as take Soothing Digestion to encourage their stomach to calm itself down and to encourage a healthy balance of flora in the GI tract for digestive health. This product can be used anytime day or night and can be considered a daily supplement. Use Lower Bowel formula with it to help start working with the cause. Also avoid eating fruit (except apples) with or for the two hours immediately following a meal to avoid fermentation problems.
May all of your rest times be blessed!!!
