Have some of the solutions so far made a difference in your sleep at night? The goal has not been to have you do every single habit change suggested so far, but to have you choose several that you can try implementing in your daily life. By this point you could expect to be falling asleep more easily in the evening, staying asleep more easily, and waking up feeling more rested. We also hope you’ve seen the importance of supporting your health in all areas, physical, mental and biochemical, to improve your sleep. You’re welcome to share your experience with us on our website. For this last week we want you to select two to four of the tips we’ve covered so far and practice them through the week. We’ll check in with you by email at the end.

However, we know that you may also not have experienced any major results by this point. We understand that this can be frustrating. You may think of it as simply a genetic trait that can’t be helped. While it’s true there are some genetic diseases that can’t be treated traditionally, most of the diseases we experience today are epigenetic diseases. What does ‘epigenetics’ mean? It literally means “above the genes”. It means we can turn our genes off and on based on the environment that we are placed in. That means what you eat and are exposed to, be it stress, toxins or physical stressors, change how your genes express. You may have some genetic mutation that may cause some dysfunction for you but it will often express only if your environment causes it to express. That also means that the environment you are healing in creates a major impact on how your genes express and if you will get well. To put it in simple terms, you have the power to change your genetic response by what you eat, what you do, and how and where you spend your time.

If you have not achieved the results you want there is likely another factor in your health that needs to be addressed by a healthcare professional. That is what makes our clinic unique. We focus on finding the root-cause of our patients’ ailments and offer quality natural therapies to address the cause. Traditional medications act more as a band-aid but natural medicine addresses the cause directly. Many patients see a positive change in their overall health as we meet with them. One of our patients said,

“I originally saw Dr. Fisher over a year ago for persistent headaches and debilitating migraines that I had been suffering with for well over a decade. Over the course of this last year not only did Dr. Fisher help treat the cause of my headaches/migraines he also helped find the cause and a solution to my constant fatigue...Thank you Dr. Fisher and Equilibrium Natural Health!”

Please note, this guide is in no way a diagnosis of your individual symptoms. If implementing these tips into your daily life does not provide a resolution of your symptoms, it is important to visit with a health care provider for further help and evaluation. There may be important pathological issues that need to be diagnosed and treated with a trained healthcare provider. Please refer to your physician before starting
any supplements or lifestyle changes.
