The real reason we can't "sleep"!

Yesterday we spoke about what happens to the body when we can't sleep . . .

So today . . . let's figure out how to fix it.

Okay . . . as I mentioned yesterday . . . when the body's ratio of "good" and "bad" bacteria are out of whack . . . the body becomes compromised and "too acidic".

You see . . . when our intestines are working too hard to break down the acids in the body . . . the brain is "unable" to fall asleep. And even if it does manage to accomplish that mission . . . the sleep quality is very poor.

So adding things like melatonin to the body, which are supposed to signal the brain that it's time to sleep . . . many times doesn't work because the brain is still unable to send the correct signals due to this "acidity".

Okay . . . so now you ask . . . what exactly is this acidity???

Well . . . as I've said many times before . . . when the body becomes overwhelmed with environmental toxins, stress, poor eating habits, negative social behavior and an over abundance of medications such as antibiotics, pain relievers, antacids, anti-inflammatories and antidepressants . . .

We lose our "good" bacteria and our body's immune defence system. Now add to that, this Western diet we love so much that's overrun with Omega 6s . . . we now find ourselves in a state "acidity".

And as a result . . . for one . . . we don't sleep well.

So how do we fix it???

Well first . . . we need to fill the body with spore forming probiotics. We must replenish the body's "good" bacteria to obtain optimal health and quality sleep.
