Free On-Demand Webinar: Sleep well, sleep safely: An exploration of the importance of sleep and botanical alternatives to conventional hypnotics
Presented by: Lise Alschuler, N.D., F.A.B.N.O
Recorded: December 3, 2013
It is estimated that up to 10% of all US adults take conventional sleep medication for poor sleep. Rather alarmingly, recent data indicates that conventional hypnotics are associated with increased risk of mortality. At the same time, insufficient sleep alters gene expression, circadian rhythms, and immunity leading to increased risk of obesity, cardiovascular disease, cancer and dementia. What is an insomniac to do?? This webinar will offer a therapeutic strategy of sleep support that relies upon the restoration of circadian rhythmicity in concert with sedative neurological tonification. The webinar will highlight several key botanicals that will ultimately provide safe and effective sleep support including Scutellaria lateriflora (American Skullcap), Eschscholzia californica (California Poppy), Piper methysticum (Kava Kava), Passiflora incarnata (Passionflower), Valeriana officinalis (Valerian), Withania somnifera (Ashwagandha), Magnolia officinalis (Magnolia).
