Having a hard time Falling Asleep? Or Staying Asleep?
Is one worse than the other? 

Only half of all Americans can say each morning, "I had a good night's sleep." Are you among the 50% who don't sleep well?

Having a hard time FALLING asleep or STAYING asleep?

Getting a good night sleep is a growing problem! Sleep is when the body repairs and strengthens itself? It is when we release our growth hormones that make us feel young and healthy. Sleep problems are typically a result of chemical imbalances, caused by a go-go lifestyle, stress and poor diet.

The typical recommendations for falling asleep such as NO caffeine, no television or work in the bedroom, turn all lights off and keep it quite are great...and most people do that and still aren’t falling asleep, which tells us there is more going on that needs to be addressed.

A good night’s sleep is more than counting sheep.  When we begin to look at the biochemistry of our body -- we can easily see why so many people are having a hard time falling asleep, as well as, those who can’t STAY asleep.

Stress can be the root of your problem, because it stimulates your brain activity!

Can’t fall asleep?

If your life is always on the go and you can’t fall asleep it could be because your adrenal glands are over-producing adrenaline, due to stress, which stimulates your mind and keeps you from falling asleep.  Your constant “fight or flight” lifestyle triggers your body to produce more stimulatory neurotransmitters (brain messengers).  This excites and stimulates your brain and prevents you from falling asleep.

How can you expect to fall asleep if you just released a bunch of chemical brain messengers that stimulate the brain?

Back in the old days, after a hard days work, when the sun went down, there wasn’t a lot we could do except read or talk with the family.  Basically our body would begin to unwind and relax as the sun went down.  As we begin to slow down the body would begin to produce “inhibitory” neurotransmitters (chemical brain messengers).

In essence, all of the ‘stimulatory’ NT (neurotransmitters) that were being produced during the day would begin to dwindle down. While at the same time, the ‘inhibitory’ NT would begin to increase so you could unwind, relax get a good night’s sleep. 

However, with the advent of the internet, cell phones, text messaging, video games and all night television, people are constantly being stimulated throughout the day AND night.  This causes the body to produce more of its ‘stimulatory’ NT, which is where the imbalance begins.  The overproduction of stimulatory NT can NOT be offset or balanced out by the ‘inhibitory’ NT.  This causes the chemical imbalance and is the main reason you can’t fall asleep at night.  The body simply can’t produce enough inhibitory NT to balance out all the stimulatory brain messengers.

Think about it?  As evening and night time approaches… do you begin to unwind with your activities?  Or, is that when you do your internet searching?  Return e-mails?  Text message? Video games?  Work?  Are you doing things that stimulate your brain?  If so, this causes your body to produce more dopamine, norepinephrine and adrenaline, which are stimulators!  They’re like a shot of coffee, which is going to make it harder to fall asleep. 

Treating the Cause…

Sleeping pills and other sleep aids only manipulate the various neurotransmitters (chemical brain messengers) to help you fall asleep.  In essence, they merely ‘knock you out’…they manipulate what little GABA and serotonin your body is producing. Serotonin and GABA are two powerful inhibitory NT, which help us relax, unwind and fall asleep.  Rather than taking drugs, a better alternative would be to deal with the cause, while at the same time, increase the production of the calming neurotransmitters, GABA and serotonin.

Neuro Calm, sometimes referred to as the natural “chill pill,” is specifically formulated to increase both GABA and serotonin levels.  This not only helps with falling asleep, but is a wonderful way to help those who might also be suffering from mood swings, anxiety and depression.

Can’t stay asleep?

This is a sign that your diet (blood sugar) is a sugar problem -- on top of an adrenal problem!

There are millions of people who have no trouble falling asleep.  However, they are having trouble staying asleep.  They wake up in the middle of the night and can’t fall back asleep, because their mind is ‘racing.’

These people have a similar problem to those who can’t fall asleep.  The only difference is that they also have a dietary component that needs to be addressed...blood sugar.

Again, Stress is at the bottom of both of these problems, because stress causes an increased production of dopamine, norepinephrine and adrenaline, which are produced by the adrenal glands.  The more stress we have in your life, the more you keep pumping those adrenal glands! Finally, you reach a point where your adrenal glands become exhausted and fatigued.  When this happens, you now have a harder time regulating your blood sugar.

Blood sugar is critical in the sleep process, because as it  drops while you are asleep, the body is designed to release cortisol to help balance blood sugar.  This keeps the brain happy, because the primary fuel for the brain is sugar (glucose or carbohydrates) and as it drops the brain is unable to function properly.   This is why some of the obvious symptoms associated with blood sugar imbalances are mood swings, irritability, inability to focus and concentrate, ADD, (take the online health quiz to measure how stable you are keeping your blood sugar).

This is important to emphasize...when your blood sugar drops…your brain takes priority over everything else! If cortisol isn’t available to stabilize your blood sugar, your brain will call upon its backup system to raise blood sugar. The backup response is the release of adrenaline.  This causes the blood sugar to rise, which makes the brain ‘happy’ and allows it to function properly.  The only problem is your body had to use adrenaline to stabilize your blood sugar and adrenaline is a ‘stimulatory’ brain messenger.  Now you’re over-stimulated and can’t go back to sleep!

Fixing the problem…

To overcome this problem you have to pay attention to your diet!  Dinner should have an adequate amount of both protein and good fats.  This will help keep the blood sugar stabilized for a longer period of time.  If you have a late night snack, It can NOT be anything with refined sugars or flours. Try eating half of a NatraLean Health Bar and hour or so before bed.  This will help keep your blood sugar stable over several hours.  You can try eating some whole fruit -- this may also help. But you can NOT make your last meal or snack one that is high in carbohydrates, especially carbohydrates that have a high glycemic rating (see glycemic chart).

Secondly, we need to be helping our body produce more of the inhibitory NT to balance out all the stimulation that is going on in our life.  This is where Neuro Calm becomes very affective.  It will help you sleep better, by helping your brain to produce more of the calming messengers.

FYI…all the over-stimulation of our adrenal glands can deplete and exhaust them, which is why it is important to nourish and support the adrenal glands.

Adrenal-Fuel will help support your tired adrenal glands, which are instrumental in controlling blood sugar.  Many customers use the AM-PM Stress Recovery Program, which incorporates the use of both Neuro-Calm and Adrenal-Fuel.  These products work synergistically to restore proper function.

So, if are struggling with sleep issues, mood swings, anxiety or depression -- try the AM-PM Stress Recovery Program! It includes both Adrenal Fuel and Neuro Calm.  Adrenal Fuel is typically taken in the morning and at lunch, to control your stress hormones. That’s the ‘AM’ portion.  Neuro Calm is taken on an empty stomach, usually before dinner and bedtime, which is the ‘PM’ aspect.
