You scored between 1-2 on the Sleep Quiz. Your sleep patterns are satifactory, but you could use some help. Check out the information below…sweet dreams!

1.  Do you have trouble falling asleep?
You may have a deficiency of calcium.  Take calcium citrate before bedtime.

You may benefit from taking melatonin if your sleep/wake cycle has been disturbed, such as in shift workers or people with jet lag.
If you’re stressed out, I recommend listening to a stress-reduction CD before bed.  I listen to Jack Canfield’s “Awaken Your Heart at Work.”

You may also have an imbalance of brain neurotransmitters.  You can take the “Self Test.” Use my practitioner code SLEEP at Neurogistcis.com.

Make sure your diet is pro-sleep.  Here are a few guidelines:

Avoid caffeine. Caffeine can have a detrimental effect on sleep, causing insomnia and restlessness. In addition to coffee, tea, soft drinks, and chocolate, look for hidden sources of caffeine in cough and cold medicine, and other over-the-counter medications.

Avoid sweets.  Sugar can make it hard to fall asleep or it can disrupt sleep in the middle of the night as blood sugar levels fall

Eat foods that help you sleep. Tryptophan is an amino acid that is a precursor to serotonin, which is converted to melatonin. Turkey or almonds are a good sources of tryptophan and make good bedtime snacks.

2.  Do you have trouble staying asleep?
You may have a magnesium deficiency.  Magnesium is a natural sedative. Deficiency of magnesium can result in difficulty staying asleep, constipation, muscle tremors or cramps, anxiety, irritability, pain, and restless leg syndrome. If you awaken between 3 and 4 am, you may need a liver cleanse.  Follow the Liver Cleanse program in Juicing, Fasting, and Detoxing for Life.  You may also want to complete the Internal Cleanse Kit, which includes Liver/Gallbladder Cleanse.

Nocturnal hypoglycemia is low blood sugar in the middle of the night where you wake up hungry.  Eat a protein snack before bed to prevent this.

You may also have an imbalance of brain neurotransmitters.  You can take the “Self Test.” Use my practitioner code SLEEP at Neurogistcis.com.

3.  Do you get too little (under 7 hours) or too much sleep (over 9 hours) when you have time to sleep as much as you want? You may have a physical condition that needs to be addressed.

4.  Are you still tired when you wake up?  You may have stressed adrenal glands and/or chronic fatigue.  Follow the program in The Juice Lady’s Living Foods Revolution.

5.  Do you crave carbohydrates?  You may have an overgrowth of yeast (follow the Coconut Diet plan), a protein deficiency, or a deficiency of the trace mineral chromium.
