Hi there.
If you are interested in natural medicine, a Naturopathic Medical Doctor is
a good and appropriate first step for doing so. You want to make sure your
choice is a board certified and licensed practitioner ( as I am),
because there are still many naturopaths who are not Naturopathic
Physicians.
That said, let me know if I can be of more help.
Thank you.

Sleep. Ah, yes. There are many remedies to aid in insomnia. However, I look at the bigger picture of gut health, stress, use of screen time, food intake, and other factors which can contribute to insomnia. In addition, there are different types of insomnia (for example: no trouble falling asleep, trouble staying asleep; trouble falling asleep, okay once asleep; waking too early, waking
often) and each requires a different approach. Hope this helps and sweet dreams!

Great question as we enter allergy season in many parts of the world. The use of nettles; both in tea and pill form makes a huge difference to combat the allergic response. Many folks also derive relief from reducing and/or eliminating mucus-producing foods; such as dairy and animal products. Spring is a great opportunity to do spring cleaning in our bodies-as we lessen inflammatory foods and exercise outside, we help our body's immune functions. Vitamin C is one of the best ways for our bodies to have healthy defenses. Increase your antioxidant foods, such as all berries, carrots, beets, etc. Look to your natural and colorful foods to provide vitamin C. ( not Skittles)! Lastly, at least 8-10 glasses daily of nonchlorinated spring water. Feel better soon!

Diets are not one size fits all and this is not an easy answer. There is much to know. Any "diet" needs to be completely individualized for a person. And, quite frankly, I don't promote "diets", because then we are either "on" a diet or "off". What we eat, how we eat, our lifestyle, happiness, and sleep hygiene are a few of the contributing factors for lifestyle and weight management. I'd love to share variations on the good, better, best nutrition for you.
