Sleep problems are a symptom of many different conditions, including heavy metal toxicity, mold illness, hormone imbalances, mineral deficiencies, thyroid issues, stress and more. 


Here's how to practice good sleep hygiene:

  • Use blue light filter glasses or apps on screens from when the sun goes down. Even better – avoid screens 2 hours before bedtime

  • Avoid bright lighting after sunset – switch to dim/incandescent/red light

  • Only go to the bedroom when its time to go to sleep - avoid doing other activities for longer than half an hour in bed

  • Leave at least 2 hours between eating and sleeping. If you get hungry at bedtime, have a small amount of protein to keep your blood sugar stable.

  • Don’t clock watch

  • Turn your phone off or put it on airplane mode

  • Install blackout curtains and use an eye mask

  • Turn the Wi-Fi router off

  • Install EMF shielding nets

  • Opt for a metal free bed and mattress to further limit EMF exposure. A natural latex mattress is best.

  • Place the bed 2 meters away from electrical appliances in use such as a fan or ai purifier

  • Turn of all sockets and unplug anything not in use

  • Move the headboard a few inches away from the wall

  • The room should be cool/cold

  • Use a weighted blanket, pillows between knees/behind back for extra comfort

  • Only go to bed within half an hour of wanting to sleep. If you don’t fall asleep within half an hour, get up and do something with dim light, read a book, write in journal, meditation, breathing techniques, muscle relaxation.

  • Avoid getting into a cycle of daytime naps - they can make it harder to sleep at night

  • Set the alarm for the same time every morning – we are creatures of habit and routine

  • Avoid all caffeine (including coke, chocolate, some types of panadol) from 1pm or earlier if sensitive.

  • Make sure your mattress and pillow is comfortable for your body’s needs

  • Avoid stimulating/energy producing supplements from the late afternoon onwards, such as B vitamins

  • Avoid exercise from the late evening onwards


The most important thing is to find the root cause of insomnia and work on them, whether through detoxing, lifestyle changes or stress management. There are also many supplements that can help improve sleep quality. You should also make earthing a daily routine, outdoors or using a grounding mat. Indirect sungazing and sunlight, morning and evening, is very beneficial in setting the body clock.
