Some reasons we can’t sleep can be

Sleep is an important factor in our body’s ability to rest and recover. If you’re not sleeping, your body isn’t having the time it needs to heal.

Having quality sleep is beneficial for us physically, mentally and emotionally. Sleep also plays a role in maintaining our immune system, metabolism, memory and learning.

I know how frustrating it can be when you’re not sleeping, waking up multiple times throughout the night, tossing and turning. Not being able to get to sleep, laying in bed staring at the ceiling and checking the clock.


Some reasons we can’t sleep can be:

  • Radiation poisoning – we are all on various technologies throughout the day and this exposure can interfere with our sleep, especially if it is in the bedroom. It is very helpful to remove as much as you can from where you sleep and turn off wifi and bluetooth devices. Other ways to reduce radiation exposure can include EMF protection devices and using selenite lamps and shungite.
  • Hormones – when our hormones are out of balance they can cause sleep problems. From hormone imbalances related to pregnancy, menopause, menstrual related issues, imbalances related to taking birth control pills or hormone replacement therapies, there are many factors that could be at play. Ideally finding the cause of your hormone imbalance and what your body needs for support is the best way to get back into balance.
  • Stress – stress can be a huge factor that prevents us from sleeping. It’s very important to find ways to reduce it as much as possible. If you can make time for yourself to do something you enjoy like being creative or even just getting out into nature for a walk, this can greatly help reduce your levels of stress..
  • Parasites – they come from all different sources such as our food, water, pets and can even enter our body when we walk barefoot.
  • Parasites are an unavoidable part of our lives, even in the States and Canada! When we have parasites, they can keep us up at night and affect our sleep. This is especially so when we consume sugar and during full moons and new moons as they are more active. Ways to reduce parasites are to wash your fruits and veggies, freeze your meat, avoid sushi, avoid and reduce sugar and carbs and eat garlic (in moderation) as parasites don’t like it.
  • Lifestyle – can play a big part as well. If you like to consume caffeine or alcohol, this can interfere with your sleep and if you workout or play a sport later at night, there’s no way you’re winding down to sleep right after. Working on reducing caffeine and alcohol consumption, avoid drinking caffeine later in the day and if possible workout earlier in the day so it doesn’t impact your sleep.


Some simple ways to help improve your sleep:

  1. Drink organic tea, such as valerian or camomile
  2. Talk a short walk.
  3. Ensure the environment is best for sleeping, consider room temperature, darkness and keeping electronics out of the room.
  4. Take a warm bath with epsom salts before bed.
  5. Avoid caffeine after 1pm, this includes chocolate and sodas/pop.
  6. Avoid alcohol.
  7. Listen to a recording of a meditation or hypnosis.
  8. If you have a lot on your mind, try journaling to get out your thoughts.
  9. Eat food that contains melatonin, our sleep hormone. Tart cherries, salmon or nuts like pistachios or almonds can be helpful!
