4 Ways to Let Go Of Stress and Insomnia

As COVID-19 continues to spread, peoples’ stress and insomnia soar higher.  Even the most laid-back people find themselves having trouble sleeping or feeling anxious. Uncertainty has become a way of life. Many people need a way to let go of stress and insomnia.

It’s not just the fact that you could get Covid-19 or if you have it ‘you’ll share-it,’ it’s the uncertainty we see in our world. Your life may be filled with doubt about your lively hood, your family, even your home. It’s not just a pandemic of health; it’s a pandemic of emotional anxiety and stress.  It is a time when nights are filled with a routine of waking each night and trouble getting back to sleep.

4 Ways to Let go of Stress and Insomnia


We can help ourselves by watching less news. We can relax our minds more through mediation and mindfulness. We can ease body tension by practicing yoga or other fitness. Let go of stress and insomnia first by looking at habits that may fuel excitement or worry in your life.

When we lack the time or doing the things mentioned above isn’t enough, what’s the answer? I hate pushing supplements, but I can tell you that your body doesn’t make enough of many natural chemicals needed in times like these. For me to let go of stress and insomnia, I have taken a regime of certain neurotransmitters. As we age beyond our teen years, our bodies make less of these in most cases.

Overcome Stress Now

I’m not talking about your basics in nutrients; instead, focus on the necessary natural chemicals your body and brain makes to help you to let go of stress and anxiety. These same neurotransmitters welcome relaxation and can help you sleep better at night.

This is the fourth way to let go of stress and insomnia. Put away the idea of prescription drugs or over-the-counter pills. Instead, enhance your body’s ability to render anxiety and insomnia useless.

I recommend these formulas to anyone suffering from mental fog, cognitive issues, or lack of mental energy, too – given the right circumstances*. I’ve prescribed these to stroke patients*.

Bring back the Zen in your life with four unique formulas.

Relax without sedation*.

Bring the Zen back into your life. Help support a feeling of general relaxation and enhanced calmness during the daytime and night with GABA and L-theanine. Life is complicated enough without hard drugs that sedate you. Relax without sedation with their formula.

Zen Adapt*

Many people have stress or tension that affects the sleep cycle, but it interferes with every part of their person. With this third formula, you can help alleviate the physical, emotional, and mental effects of stress and tension. The main ingredient is ashwagandha and the patented Sensoril formula, a pure water extract.

Zen Sleep*

When we wake from a more deeply relaxed state, you’re ready to tackle the day with more ease and grace. Without a good night’s sleep, we tend to be reactive instead of being responsive to others. Sleep is so vital that numerous notable people have spoken out about its importance in the last decade.

P5P and 5-HTP are precursors to Serotonin and Melatonin. Using both at bedtime can help you drift into a deeper, more relaxed sleep. Often, I recommend a suspended release of Melatonin for anyone who finds themselves repeatedly waking in the middle of the night.

I understand personally how demanding life is, especially right now. There are days I struggle to let go of stress and insomnia. My practice and recommendation to you is to get into meditation if you are doing so yet. Look at your eating and exercise habits.

Finally, if you still are in a battle to let go of stress and insomnia, this group of formulas may be right for you. I am happy to work with you by phone –give me a call.

Why Curcumin May Be Better For Inflammation

Why Curcumin May Be Better For Inflammation

Remember when Turmeric was a hot topic for inflammation?  Then it was Curcumin, the naturally-occurring chemical compound found in the spice turmeric, highly recommended for any swelling.

A few years later, we hear about absorption problems and stomach upset so how can you get the benefits of curcumin and not end up with acid reflux?

Let’s Talk Benefits First


This popular spice of India not only adds a rich flavor to food it is considered a superfood. It helps to fight or reverse several ailments.

  • Indigestion
  • Relieves arthritis pain
  • Treats burns
  • Boosts your immunity
  • Cancer treatment – fights tumors
  • Curcumin is rich in iron and vitamin C.
  • Brain health
Arthritis or joint pain concept
Turmeric and Curcumin

No wonder Turmeric is considered a superfood with all it’s health benefits.

The Best Way To Use Curcumin Supplements

Whether your eating turmeric or taking a curcumin supplement, it is worth noting that you need to eat fat with it. Vegetable fat isn’t enough. A hearty animal protein or a salad with an olive oil-based dressing is ideal. Also pepper of all things activates the bioavailability of this spice so it can do its job.

Bioavailability means to make it useable by your body. So if you’re eating it make sure you use pepper. If you’re supplementing make sure your product has pepper on the ingredients.


Another thing.


Curcumin or turmeric can inhibit digestive enzymes. I recommend you take your enzymes at the beginning of a meal and your supplement after you have eaten – on a full stomach.

Turmeric Or Curcumin Which Is Best?


Most of my patients and I prefer a formula that includes ginger instead of pepper. Remember the acid reflux I mentioned above? Ginger has a similar action to help our stomach absorb the Turmeric while also being soothing. Pepper often irritates the digestive tract.


What About Turmerones?

Turmerones are valuable compounds found in turmeric essential oil. Turmerones have actions that are similar to curcumin, but they have only recently been the subject of serious scientific and clinical research. So far, studies show that this essential oil can decrease inflammation better than Curcumin alone.

If you’re unhappy with your Turmeric or aren’t taking an anti-inflammatory supplement, may I recommend you look into taking it. Even if you don’t suspect inflammation in your body, the benefits to brain health are remarkable. However let’s be honest. Everyone has some form of inflammation, and the fact it may assist in reducing tumors. Taking Curcumin is a no-brainer.

How To Naturally Treat Food Poisoning

How To Naturally Treat Food Poisoning

Have you ever had an itch that burns? An itch that makes you feel like your skin is on fire? The left sole of my foot itched so deep I used a blunted tool to dig in, still no relief. It moved to my left palm, then my right pinky of all places. I had food poisoning. I had an allergic reaction.

The Ultimate Allergic Reaction

The itch, as it’s now called, moved recklessly all over my body. No place safe from the itch. A true allergic reaction. Skin irritation is so unpleasant, and the constant battle brings on fatigue and physical weakness.

It started at one of our favorite [not any longer] Mexican restaurants. By the time we’d finished eating, I knew something was wrong. My stomach was achy, so I quickly took some enzymes that I carry. Food poisoning wasn’t on my mind.

The Many Faces Of Food Poisoning

My husband felt fine until the middle of the night. He woke with all the typical food poisoning symptoms: Stomach ache, diarrhea, fever, and chills. Myself on the hand had a different response.

If you ever have a similar allergic reaction to food poisoning, here are some tips, including not eating that food again. Here’s what you can do the next time food attacks you.

The Best Natural Treatment 

Keep dietary Charcoal on hand. Take 450-580 mg on an empty stomach 2-4 times a day until all your symptoms are gone. The charcoal will bind to the toxins and move them out of your digestion. It must be taken on an empty stomach. It’s critical to wait 2 hours after taking it before eating.

Add-in with your food, Quercetin, Vitamin C, and Bromalin.

Staying Away From Western Medicine

I know many times people don’t know what they can do that is safe and natural. We hurry to get Benadryl or a steroid from the doctor. Both of these do more harm than good.  Suppressing your symptoms only makes your allergic reaction last longer because the toxins are still inside you.

If you’re in trouble with a rash or itchy skin, due to any reason, try these natural supplements. When your skin itches you’re having an allergic reaction. You can also try Allergy elimination treatments. They’re a specific acupuncture treatment to stop some allergies.  We’re happy to talk to you by phone and help you with your online order. Food poisoning is no fun.

Finding Constipation Pain Relief

Finding Constipation Pain Relief

Nothing sucks more than feeling bloated and gassy. It’s that crappy feeling when you can’t go. So, ask yourself are you constipated? I’m going to help you get going on knowing what to do to get going safely. What you need is constipation pain relief.constipation pain relief concept

What Is Constipation?

Doctors and practitioners like myself call this gastric distress too. The whole colon or your intestines are blocked. In their opening statement, the 2018 Expert Consensus Document created by the International Working Group for Disorders of Gastrointestinal Motility and Function they said, “Disturbances of gastric, intestinal and colonic motor and sensory functions affect a large portion of the population worldwide.”

What is Causing The Slow Down In Your Gut?

That’s a mouth-full. They’re saying most people are constipated.  They came away with many constipation pain relief ideas including prebiotics and probiotics. I’d could tell you this just based on over 29 years of being a licensed health provider! The key issue is the lack of frequency of bowel movements. Hey, many people are searching for constipation pain relief, and they want it quick. Not so fast though, what is causing the constipation?constipation pain relief concept

Most people do not go poop often enough. If you think you’re the one, don’t be embarrassed! Most people have the same problem. It can be caused by SIBO or another digestion problem

Weight Gain and More

It leads to weight gain, feeling bloating, being tired, and can cause lack of focus. How?  Waste or stool is toxic to you if it hangs around. Think of the lovely smell that you don’t want to hang around once you go. That’s inside you until you do! The action I like to take with clients is acupuncture and a ‘SIBO’ questionnaire. You likely don’t have SIBO; this rules that out.

Then we can formulate a natural treatment plan for you.

The National Institutes of Health or NIH, reports that people who have fewer than three bowel movements a week have an issue with motility or movement of their bowels. Taking just magnesium will not solve the problem.


Could It Be Your Prescription Medicine?

A big factor today is drugs that people take. These cause bowel problems making constipation pain relief a big product market. It’s impossible if you take drugs or have a compromised digestion to make it through a day without natural support for your gut.

Here’s a list of medicines that can make you constipated.

  • Antacids containing aluminum and calcium
  • Anticholinergics/antispasmodics
  • Anticonvulsants
  • Antidepressants
  • Antihypertensives
  • Antipsychotics
  • Bile acid sequestrants
  • Calcium channel blockers
  • Diuretics
  • Iron supplements
  • Opiates

Tips For Stomach PainSIBO concept

Of course, most medical doctors recommend increasing your fiber and water intake. Many will suggest a constipation medicine with side-effects and long-term health problems.  For many, this isn’t a fix at all. Maybe you just won’t eat more fiber because you live, breath and consume fiber all day. I have help for you that is natural.

What to take for constipation can be a natural solution. A 2017 Study published in Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology showed that probiotics significantly increase how much you go poop. [It’s okay to use that word, honest]

SIBO Or Other Considerations

Knowing why your bowels aren’t moving is your first step. Taking probiotics if you have SIBO can actually make it worse. Back to magnesium. For many this is a safe bet until you either do my SIBO Questionnaire or lab work. Even if you suffer leaky gut, candida, or acid reflux with bowel motility problems you’ll need to have more information.

A 2007 study published in European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, reported if you’re low in magnesium, you’re likely constipated. In doing micro-nutrient lab workups on in-office patients, I find 50% of the patients are indeed suffering from low magnesium. When working with virtual [phone] coaching clients we can use their whole symptoms picture to see if magnesium is a fit.

When asking yourself, are you constipated, remember you should have one to three bowel movements daily. What goes in needs to come out. If you’re looking for constipation pain relief  give us a call.
