Natural Cures for Insomnia

Hey guys, Axe here from DrAxe . Oneof the most common things I'll hear from my patients, is they'll say, quot; Axe, I can'tsleep.quot; And if you're one of those people that have trouble falling asleep, or strugglewith insomnia, or you wake up during the night, that's very common. In this tutorial I'm goingto go through the exact steps you need to follow to get better quality of sleep andto help you fall asleep fast. Step number one in overcoming sleep deprivationis to change your diet, surprisingly. And, for a lot of people, their diets are keepingthem from falling asleep. Before you go to bed, you need to really drop your carbohydrateconsumption. If you're consuming too many

sugars and carbs, your body is burning those,it's getting warm. And so, lowering that sugar, and grain intake, and carbohydrate intakebefore bed is important. And get some good quality fats before you go to bed. Somethinglike an avocado is a great food to actually help you fall asleep at night, either avocadoor some organic yogurt. So again, avocado and organic yogurt, are the best foods tohelp you naturally fall asleep. The reason they work is those foods are high in magnesiumand potassium. Magnesium and potassium are two crucial nutrients you need to help relaxthe body and to help you fall asleep at night. So remember avocado and yogurt, the top twofoods you can consume just a little bit here

or there in the evening that will help youfall asleep at night. The second step you need to do to overcomeinsomnia is to reduce stress. And for most people, along with diet, this is the big thingthat's keeping you up at night, is your mind starts racing, you keep thinking and you can'tshut your brain off. And there are several reasons for that. One, is you watched TV upuntil the point that you went to bed. That visual stimulus you're watching constantly,especially the blue light, and that doesn't just include the TV screen, it also includesyour computer, your iPad, or your phone. And that light is blue light, which actually tellsyour pineal gland in your brain that it actually

needs to keep running, so it messes with yourcircadian rhythms and cortisol levels. It keeps you from falling asleep at night whenyou were looking at that bright blue light in the computer screens and TV screens. So,about 30 minutes at least, ideally, an hour, but at least 30 minutes before bed, you needto shut off all electronics, and you need to start reading something that helps yourelax. Or start journaling. So you can get out ajournal and start writing things down. You can look at your schedule for the next dayand write that down. But I really recommend reading a novel that you enjoy, reading adevotional, your Bible, or just something

that helps you relax and wind down at least30 minutes before bed. And that's going to help, and in general reducing stress. And if you have something that's really stressingyou out, that's keeping you from sleeping at night, I recommend you start writing downthose things that stress you out. Work on addressing those the best you can, and thenstart scheduling things into the week that you love to do. It is so important. If you'vehad a great day, and you've been happy all day, it actually creates certain hormonesin your body known as endorphins that actually help you fall asleep at night. So actually,having a good mood throughout the day can

help improve your sleep at night. So stepnumber two, shut down the computers and read a book before bed. As well as just add somejoy into your life. Reduce stress; it's very important for falling asleep at night. Step number three, is take quality supplements,especially a magnesium supplement. And taking a magnesium supplement, about 400 to 500mga night before bed, can help you naturally reduce stress, and really improve sleep. Andso I recommend a high quality magnesium chelate or magnesium citrate before bed. So takinga magnesium supplement can help you fall asleep. Also supplements like melatonin can help,or valerian root. But I don't recommend doing

Five Tips To Get Your Baby To Sleep Through The Night

There are only a handful ofthings that would make my baby wake up at night. But it took me a while to learnwhat they all were. Once I knew the challenges, it waseasier to avoid them and keep us sleeping through the night. My told me sleep was veryimportant to the development of my baby's brain and his little body, so Iwanted to help him get as much sleep

as he could. Here were our top five sleepinterruptions and what we did about them. Babies pee at night, a lot. And when mine was wet, he gotuncomfortable and wriggly and woke up. I found a high quality diaper tohelp keep him dry at night. And it was soft and comfortable,so he would sleep.

And a good night of sleep meanta good morning for both of us. For those first couple months, my babyate every few hours around the clock. I learned pretty quickly that Ididn't want him to need to eat to go back to sleep. So I would keep him awake while he ate,sometimes by talking or singing quietly to him.

Or I would change his diaper halfwaythrough the feeding to help him stay awake. Putting him in the bed before he wasasleep was the key to teaching them how to put himself back to sleep. My baby seemed to have a windowof time for putting him down. And if I missed it and he gotovertired, then I'd have a hard time

getting him down at all. It took me a while, but eventually Ilearned all the sleepy signals, things like rubbing his eyes, fussiness,or laying his head down. When I saw any of these, I'd gethim to bed as soon as I could. Loud noises were often a problem,especially when there were other kids or people around, though we also foundthat silence was a problem. So as much as possible, I tried to havesome kind of background noise

when he went to bed, oftensome lullaby music. No matter what, babiesdo wake up at night. But we wanted our son to learnto put himself back to sleep. We tried our best not to run in everytime he whimpered, because our noise and energy would often be thething that woke him up. Have you ever been visiting someone orstaying at a hotel and when you wake up it takes a minute for you tofigure out where you areé Well, that's what it's like for babies,except they will need to see

Getting A ThreeMonthOld To Sleep Through The Night Parents

My name is Ingrid Prueher, and I used to workwith the sharks on Wall Street, but now I have a much tougher job. NOISE They callme the Baby Sleep Whisperer. NOISE Hello. Hello. Hello. Hi, nice to meet you. Nice tomeet you. I'm Eric. Nice to. Nice to meet you. Hi Laura this is Hunter. Hi Hunter. Weare first time parents. One of the main issues we are having is with sleep. The baby is currentlysleeping in this rocker in our room for night sleep. it's tough. We hear her when she wakesup, we wake up. If she fusses, we're up. We're starting at her and I think we probably enablethe baby to wake up more than she would. So what we're really looking for is for Ingridto come in, talk to us about good sleep habits

and how to transition her from being in ourroom to being in her own room. Eric and Laura are having a really common problem. Especiallyfor first time parents. Hunter only goes to sleep when her mother rocks her. It was finefor the first few weeks home from the , but now, it's become a bad habit. And herparents want to move her out of their room, and into her own. This rocker. Yes. I loveit, during a wait time only, but not for putting the baby to sleep. We can start with. Napstaking place in the crib cuz we wanna teach her that her bedroom is a sleep environment.Right. The way she goes down to sleep is the way she's gonna expect to go back to sleep,every time she wakes. Mm hm. Okay. So if

you rock her to sleep, expect that you'regonna be rocking her until she's a year and a half. To get Hunter out of her parents roomand into her own room, we're going to try to recreate the womb setting for the baby.While for grownups, we like quiet when we sleep, but newborn babies are exactly theopposite because the womb is loud, as loud as a vacuum cleaner. So we're going to downloada white noise app from the iPad. Pad. So when you hear her start fussing what you'd liketo do is you take advantage of the fact that the white nose machine is in the backgroundand start shushing along with it to help her calm. Shh! Shh! We're gonna place her feetclose to the bottom railing. And her head

close to the side railings, don't worry she'snot gonna get hurt. But what we're trying to do is mimic the womb setting, she was surroundingby walls. We don't want to place her in the middle where she's gonna feel like she's swimmingin a pool. So what we would do now is we can place her hand over her chest and just holdit down. And shh. Shh. And if she's fine what I recommend is tell the parents to leave.Okay. Okay readyé Sounds good. Alright. Let's leave her and let's see. She does. It takeschildren anywhere from one minute to 30 minutes to wind down before they go to sleep. Justlike adults, so it's natural for her to wind down. What is she learning hereé She's learningthat. She doesn't need the rocking, and she

doesn't need all these other things, thatshe actually has the capability of putting herself to sleep. We all do. Shh. Shh. Goodjob. Good job. Good job. High five. That was awesome. I don't believe it. I can't believeshe's not sleeping in my arms right now. I can actually do things. LAUGH It's a littleodd, righté LAUGH It's a little odd, but Take a deep breath. I know. She's never beenby herself before. We've always been. Next to her on the couch or next to her on thebed. Mm hm. And I didn't think she was just going to go down like that. Yeah. Yeah. Youjust recreated the womb setting. She just wanted to be home again. INAUDIBLE Yeahthat's wonderful. And not watching Steve Harvey

on TV. LAUGH Yeah exactly. Not yet. Ihave to say I'm, I'm really surprised. I mean Hunter is MUSIC Napping as we speak, shh.In her own room, and she went down fine. She's been asleep now for almost three hours andI have never seen that happen during the day. I just know that it's good for her like mymother's intuition tells me that she's getting some of the best sleep that she's had probablysince she's been born. Hi, guys. How are youé We have a baby who now sleeps basically throughthe night every single night without fail. It's fantastic. You know. Pediatrician waslike, don't tell other parents that your child is sleeping LAUGH like that at night. LAUGH She was, like ,. You won't have
