I'm looking for non-pharmaceutical aids in helping me sleep better. What is available? How do I know if products I haven't tried will work for me?

Hi Lindsay, Everything Susan writes is true and valuable. I'd only add that melatonin, it seems, only works for people who have a (slight) deficiency, or below-normal level. It seemed for a while like a magic bullet, but now we know why it didn't work for everyone. I formulated a blend of herbs that relax, and while Susan's right that you won't know what works for you until you try it, I feel confident in recommending it.
You can often find it at your local herbal store, or go to our website. Here are the Deep Sleep details:June 30, 2014 - 1:46pm
