What sleep aid can you suggest that will not effect my thyroid function?
Q. I have been suffering from chronic insomnia for a year and a half. It could be related to food allergy as I am gluten intolerant, or menopause, or anxiety, or all three. Is it possible to take any sleep aid, prescription or natural, without effecting thyroid function?
A. As related to gluten intolerance, try HMF Neuro to help breakdown any gluten byproducts, and to restore your GI. It contains both healthy bacteria (acidophilus and bifidus) as well as L-glutamine for GI repair. As your GI improves, your body will be better able to manufacture neurotransmitters which will also help with anxiety.
I also suggest you try Magnelevures at night. It is a magnesium supplement which is very effective in anxiety reduction and in promoting restful sleep.
The third consideration I would recommend is Dioscorea Cream, which is natural progesterone. It would positively influence your hormone levels since progesterone is a building block for many hormones. You may consider reading, What Your Doctor Won’t Tell You About Menopause, By Dr. Lee, MD. It is an excellent guide to naturally restoring healthy hormone levels.
