Sleep Stress Kit
Sleep Stress Kit
Anybody who has ever tossed and turned after a rough day at work knows that stress can make it hard to get a good night of sleep. But the connection between sleep and stress is a two-way street—just as surely as stress interrupts sleep, a lack of sleep can be an uncomfortably large source of stress.
I battled sleeplessness for years. The combination of owning multiple businesses and a bad back from a lingering injury made for many sleepless nights. I’ve actually gone entire weeks only getting 8-10 hours of sleep! The collateral damage from this kind of fatigue is unmeasurable.
Sleep plays an important role in our physical health. For example, sleep is involved in healing and repairing our heart and blood vessels. This is why sleep deficiency is linked to heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and accelerated aging.
Sleeplessness also has a lot to do with weight gain. People with short sleep duration tend to weigh significantly more than those who get adequate sleep. In fact, short sleep duration is one of the strongest risk factors for obesity. In one massive study, children and adults with short sleep duration were 55% to 89% more likely to become obese.
I share all of this with you because my experience and research led me to discover one of the most important tools I’ve relied upon while working to defeat sleeplessness.
This is the combination of Standard Process whole-food supplements I’ve put together after years of trying many different products:
• Adrenal Complex (1 breakfast + 1 lunch)
• Thyroid Complex (1 breakfast + 1 lunch)
• VasCulin (2 breakfast + 2 lunch)
• Min-Tran (6 at bedtime)
• Nervagesic (1 at bedtime)
These whole food supplements do not create a dependency or addiction but are really powerful and effective in relieving stress and helping you to get a good night’s rest.
Additional tools to combat sleeplessness include:
HIGH PROTEIN DINNER - This includes fish, meat, or poultry with vegetables. Remember your grandmother’s cure for insomnia? A glass of warm milk (protein) at bedtime. Of course, her warm milk was real, raw, non-pasteurized, and non-homogenized.
SKIP THE STARCH - Stay away from processed foods, alcohol, coffee, or caffeinated tea at or after dinner. If you have dessert, keep it small and finish it by 7 p.m. Alcohol can help someone fall asleep, but often does more harm than good 2-3 hours later when the buzz wears off.
NOTHING AFTER 7 PM - For millions of people, a drop in blood sugar (caused by too many sweets and carbohydrates for dinner) will wake them up after a couple hours of sleep. Instead, eat quality protein and vegetables, which will keep your blood sugar steady while feeding your pineal gland, your brain, and your production of melatonin and serotonin—all of which are needed for good sleep. Commit to this for at least 90 days to experience significant change.
EXERCISE - Everyone gets better sleep after they exercise. A strong walk after dinner is often sufficient; 22-30 minutes of exercise a day is ideal. The goal is to get a good sweat in without overdoing things. This will increase strength, slow aging, and fight disease.
PRE-SLEEP ROUTINE - Make sure you’re setting yourself up for a good night’s sleep. This includes no digital stimulation (phone, computer, or television) an hour before you go to bed. A 10-minute stretching / breathing exercise like this ONE can work wonders.
WATER - Be sure to drink half your body weight in ounces of water each day. If you’re active and working out, you should double that number and drink your entire body weight in ounces of water. Many people lie awake at night for no reason other than being dehydrated.
