As a Naturopathic Doctor in Mississauga, I commonly work with patients on sleep issues, including difficulty sleeping and insomnia.

Counting sheep not working? Having difficulty sleeping? Try these sleep tips

Poor sleep or insomnia can lead to poor energy, poor memory and performance at work.

Avoiding stimulants such as chocolate, caffeine and energy drinks (containing ephedra) can help, but sometimes this is just not enough to get out of the rhythm of poor sleep.

An easy and cheap fix is sometimes all one needs — here is a short video on how to do alternate nostril breathing. This type of breathing helps to boost melatonin (sleep hormone) and decrease cortisol (stress hormone). Doing this short exercise before bed can help to relax you into a peaceful slumber.
