Unlocking Natural Sleep Solutions

A Journey to Restful Nights and Migraine Relief

I often hear from women who turn to medication to help them sleep hoping it will stop their migraines.

Amitriptyline and other sleep aids like Ambien and Xanax are commonly prescribed, but here's the thing: while they may provide temporary relief, they can backfire in the long run.

These medications and others can increase your inflammatory load and ultimately exacerbate migraines.

So, instead of reaching for that prescription bottle, try digging deeper and addressing the root of the problem.

Get started by exploring some natural strategies to improve sleep and tackle migraines head-on.

First things first, let's determine what's truly causing your sleep issues.

Is it a matter of honoring your bedtime and seeking help with daily chores so you aren't burning the midnight oil?

Do you need to establish a new sleep routine instead of scrolling social media to ensure you hit the pillow at the right time?

Or is there an underlying sleep dysfunction that requires temporary support until you can address the root cause?

Understanding your unique situation is crucial in finding effective solutions.

In the meantime, while you work on resolving the underlying issue, there are some temporary sleep strategies that you can consider to promote better rest.

Try them all or pick and choose what works for you.

  • Tryptophan and Serotonin Foods: Incorporate foods rich in tryptophan, such as turkey, nuts, and seeds, which can aid in promoting sleep by boosting serotonin levels.
  • Ensure you're not deficient in calcium, as it plays a vital role in utilizing tryptophan to produce melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep.
  • Higher levels of magnesium have been shown to induce deeper sleep, especially when taken together with calcium for better absorption.
  • Certain essential oils have calming properties that can promote relaxation and aid in achieving the sleep you need.
  • Passion Flower can offer a calming effect that can help break the vicious cycle of racing thoughts, enabling better sleep.
  • Also, consider maintaining a sleep journal to track your experiences and evaluate what works best for you.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Debbie Waidl is the Owner of In The Balance Health Coaching LLC, and Founder of The Freedom From Migraines Method™   & The Migraine Freedom Protocol™ 
She supports busy moms living with Migraines. 

Debbie will uncover what is holding them back from migraine freedom so they can live their life pain and symptom free, work productively, spend the time they want with family and friends, and stop missing out on the things they enjoy.

A message from Debbie:
"I was once right where you are now.  100% believing there was NO WAY to end migraines and my only option was to learn how to live with them or find that magic pill that maybe would work for a while.  If anyone told me back then that I could end my pain once and for all, I would have called BS and popped another pill!

Skeptical times 10  was my middle name for sure because when you try it all and everyone tells you they can help you and they don’t.   You stop believing…  you lose HOPE!

I now realize I was approaching my migraines all backward.

I was trying to cover up symptoms versus trying to end my pain."
