3 Keys to Improve Your Sleep

1) Detox, Detox, Detox

Anna improved her sleep. She says, “[Your 30-Day] Detox helped me get more sleep.. It actually helped me with the insomnia I was dealing with. I don’t know what it was exactly that happened but this definitely set me in a mood to sleep every night after [I cleansed]…but this was just an additional bonus on top of making me feel much better overall.”  Anna

So what was it about the detox that helped Anna sleep better?

First off, a congested, toxic liver can cause sleep disturbances. The hours between 1 am and 3 am are when the liver cleanses the blood and performs many other functions. Waking during this time can mean that waste is not being processed well by your liver and it acts out causing insomnia and frayed nerves. Your brain may start chatting non-stop. You may also need to deal with unresolved anger and grudges towards others as part of your cleanse. Between 11 pm and 1 am is gallbladder time, which is related to liver. (Trouble falling asleep around 11 pm?) Liver and gallbladder hop to action during this 4-hour period of time.

How to Get Rid of Floaters in the Eyes

People often ask me if there is anything they can do about floaters.  Many times they have been told there is no hope for this condition.  This is not true.  I once had so many floaters that on a sunny day the various shapes floating by reminded me of a star-studded night.  I have totally cured myself. Here’s what you can do to improve your eye health:

Antioxidants
Eating foods and drinking juices rich in antioxidants is a good home remedy for floaters. Foods rich in vitamin C, beta-carotene, and E are the best sources of antioxidants. Juice carrots, dark leafy greens, lemon, all other brightly colored vegetables.

Hibiscus Lowers Blood Pressure

 

Hibiscus iced tea is a refreshing summer pick-me-up that is naturally sweet so you don’t need to add any sweetener.  It has no caffeine, but it offers numerous health benefits.  A review of the research on Hibiscus shows that an extract of this flower lowers blood pressure in animals (Fitoterapia, March, 2013). In humans, daily hibiscus tea consumption has been shown to lower blood pressure (Journal of Nutrition, Feb., 2010). It works by blocking the same enzyme (ACE) as drugs like captopril or lisinopril.  Other studies show that it fights inflammation.  Stay cool and refreshed on these hot summer days with delicious hibiscus tea.  Try raspberry-hibsicus or make the recipe below.

 

Recipe

Hibiscus Power Iced Tea

Chopped hibiscus flowers (order Amazon) or 5 hibiscus herbal tea bags*

12 mint leaves (optional)

Juice of 1 lime (optional)

2 quarts purified water

Steep hibiscus tea or flowers in water. I put it all in the refrigerator. In about an hour you have iced tea.

*I recommend Hibiscus tea or “Back on Tract”—hibiscus and cranberry—both by Traditional Medicinals (visit their website at www.traditionalmedicinals.com).
