Treating and curing sleep disorders with common amino acids is the basis of orthomolecular medicine. Large doses of naturally found proteins called amino acids can restore the brain’s imbalance and correct malfunction. These amino acids are affordable and used in therapeutic doses far greater than the levels normally found in food. The concept of orthomolecular medicine is based on the use of very large doses of vitamins, minerals, amino acids or botanical extracts for the cellular repair and improvement of normal brain activities.

Don’t you get a promotion because you’re tired at the office? Are you about to part with fatigue and sleep deprivation? Can’t handle your kids because you’re too tired? Sleep disturbances can cause many problems and you may not be able to break the pattern on your own. Sleeping pills can help you fall asleep, but most make you sleep too much or wake up feeling tired. Modern orthomolecular medicine can make these problems disappear in many people within a few weeks. There may be sleeping habits that also need to be changed and dietary changes that need to be made. Do not eat or watch television in the bedroom if you have trouble sleeping. Stay out of bed until you’re ready to fall asleep. Buy a good mattress and bedding made of cotton, silk, linen, hemp or wool for the bedroom. Try to avoid caffeine and excess alcohol in the late afternoon and evening. Don’t take over-the-counter sleeping pills.

Orthomolecular medicine uses various supplements to improve and improve sleep. These can include botanicals such as Kava, Valerian, St. John’s Wort, Passion Flower, Lemon Balm, and Chamomile. The botanicals should be taken daily for several months. It may take three to five weeks for a noticeable change in sleep to occur.

Melatonin and a combination of vitamin D, calcium and magnesium should be tried for very serious sleep problems. Melatonin does not always work and should be taken about thirty minutes before bed at levels of 1.5 to 3 mcg/day. You may want to take selenium along with the melatonin to boost your immune system.

Chinese patent formulas to improve sleep are Amnien Pian, Bu Nao Wan and Zhi Bai Di Huang Wan. There are at least a dozen different patent formulas from China that can promote sleep. The right formula is selected based on your needs. Most Chinese patent formulas must be taken for at least six weeks or more to address the underlying condition causing the insomnia symptom.

Amino acids needed to improve sleep are 5-HTP, theanine and GABA. The addition of bioidentical hormones may be necessary for men in andropause or women in menopause. Never take any type of hormone without a blood test or saliva test to determine which hormones are low. Remember that the Chinese have avoided many sleep disorders and hormonal imbalances by using food therapy and Chinese herbs. Consider these options with a healthcare provider.
