Sleep has a significant impact on your health. I want to cover the top things that can prevent you from getting a good night’s sleep.

There’s a direct correlation between your sleep and overall heart function and longevity.

A lack of sleep can affect your blood sugar levels and increase cravings and hunger. Poor sleep can also raise your cortisol and affect your mood.

The top things that prevent you from sleeping:
1. High cortisol
2. Low vitamin D
3. Low calcium
4. Low magnesium
5. Low potassium
6. A bad sleeping environment
7. Taking melatonin
8. Blue light and EMF
9. Low vitamin B12
10. Low vitamin B1
11. Low zinc
12. Stimulants

Cutting out sugar and going on a low-carb diet is crucial to help you start sleeping better. Also, avoid eating too late or overeating to help support better sleep. Another great tip is to focus on your breathing to help you fall asleep fast.

  • Zunilda Martinez says:

    I am glad that Dr. Berg is explaining the causes of not sleeping. This has been my life story, having insomnia. It is very difficult for me to fall sleep. Most of the time, I am awake all night, and when I say all night is true, it is the entire night. have melatonin but I am reluctant to take it. My insomnia is bad, awful. .
    I refuse to take any sleeping pills, and I will not.

    Thank you Dr. Berg for bringing up this very important subject, it is appreciated.
