Podcast 226: How to Kick Insomnia’s Ass!

IMG_3917by Sean Croxton

You do not have an Ambien deficiency.

Insomnia can be one of the most frustrating things ever. So I can understand the temptation to turn to prescription sleeping meds to get some shuteye.

At the same time, I’m a firm believer in finding the root cause(s) of health challenges — insomnia included.

The problem is that most medical doctors don’t have the time — and maybe even lack the knowledge — to properly investigate the many possible reasons why their patients can’t sleep.

It could be blood sugar dysregulation, skewed hormones, neurotransmitter deficiencies due to faulty protein digestion, untreated infections, food sensitivities, poor diet, on and on.

Sleeping pills won’t solve any of the above. Eventually they become a crutch. You can’t sleep without them.

You’re essentially paying to sleep.

In my opinion, sleeping should be free.

Last night on Underground Wellness Radio, my friend and upcoming Real Food Con presenter Ameer Rosic stopped by to discuss the most common reasons for insomnia as well as what to do about it.

Wanna Lose Weight? Then Go to Bed!

What I Learned Today #3
Currently Reading: The Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf

I know. I know. I was supposed to be reading The China Study right now. Sorry, I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. Not that I’m avoiding it at all. I honestly just have better things to do and more great books to read with the limited time I’ve got. I’ll get to it one of these days.

Instead, I pulled Robb Wolf’s bestseller The Paleo Solution off the shelf. Great choice. This book rocks. Full of great info and pretty darn funny, too! Robb’s got jokes.

Today, I’m getting my learn on about the many hormones involved in hunger and satiety. A lot of people I consult with just can’t stop eating. They’re perpetually hungry. Nothing satisfies them, especially the high-carb, low-fat diet they’ve been scared into consuming. Not so coincidentally, these same folks can’t recall the last time they got a restful night’s sleep. They either take hours to fall asleep or they wake up every 2 or 3 hours. Sometimes both. That’s gotta suck.
