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.
