    "To Sleep, Perchance To Dream-Ay, There's The Rub."By Dr. Greg Fors, DC / Board-certifi ed Neurologist

    Many Americans no longer enjoy the pleasure of sleep. The National Institute of Health (NIH) estimates more than 70 million Americans are affected by sleep problems, and a new class of sleep drugs called sedative/hypnotics, such as Ambien, Lunesta and Sonata has taken America by storm. These drugs were originally designed for short term use only, no more than 1 to 2 weeks. In just four years (2000 to 2004) the use of sleep medications doubled among adults age 24 to 44 and increased by 85% for children aged 10 to 19. A recent study fi nanced by the NIH found that sleeping pills like Ambien, Lunesta and Sonata only reduced the time it took to fall asleep by 13 minutes and increased the total sleep time by 11 minutes when compared to a placebo. Individuals in the study thought they had slept 32 minutes longer than they actually had because of a drug induced anterograde amnesia. In other words when people wake up after taking sleeping pills they simply forget they are unable to sleep. Americans now spend more than $5 billion a year on drugs to help them forget they are unable to sleep restfully. The most commonly reported problems with sleep hypnotics like Ambien include daytime drowsiness, diarrhea, and coordination problems. These medications work as a central nervous system depressant leading to decreased inhibition causing aggressiveness, agitation, bizarre behavior and depolarization in some individuals. Visual and auditory hallucinations have also been reported. There have been numerous reports of people taking these medications and driving their cars, preparing and eating food, making phone calls and having sex while not fully awake and having no memory of the event. Ambien actually now ranks among the top 10 drugs found in the bloodstreams of impaired drivers. Using these sleep hypnotics like Ambien for more than 7 to 14 days can cause a chronic sleeplessness that is actually worse than the original insomnia. Use of these sleep medications for more than four weeks can damage to the stages of sleep as well as cause addiction, actual physical dependence and withdrawal once you stop taking them. Also these sleep hypnotics like Ambien slow down your brain's activity. When you stop taking Ambien, activity in the brain can rebound out of control and actually cause seizures. This is why it is important to seek medical help when you stop taking drugs like Ambien. So why do Americans continue to take these addictive damaging drugs?, no doubt because everyone treasures a peaceful restful sleep. What is puzzling to me as a doctor is why no one asks the question why am I not sleeping? The simple answer is that it takes a healthy brain to generate a healthy sleep! It is specifi c areas of your brain that produce the cycles of sleep just like there are areas of the brain that generates a peaceful and happy mood. If the brain is lacking needed nutrients or if something is causing metabolic damage to optimal brain function this will lead to sleep and mood disorders. To actually have restful sleep again you must look to optimizing your brain health. We can now see that drugs do not heal this problem they simply create more complex health issues. A better choice is to address the underlying nutritional and metabolic issues. There can be food allergies, toxic chemicals and toxic metals in your environment that need to be identifi ed and removed. Usually there are decreased levels and/or genetically an increased need for various nutrients: e.g. vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, and essential fatty acids that must be restored, to assist in repair of the metabolic dysfunction related to sleep disorders. It is also vital to test for and treat any hormonal imbalances such as adrenal dysfunction and high nighttime cortisol levels. Added to this proper dosage of melatonin and specifi c herbal extracts utilized by a knowledgeable doctor can help restore restful sleep, naturally! Want to know more, attend my FREE SEMINAR!
