In this article, I’ll be covering my top 3 things you can do to improve your sleep and one bonus option that can take it a step further.
It’s no secret that sleep is one of the most important things your body needs to function properly. Patients in need of healing should turn to supplements, but also to their sleep patterns.
After 20 years of clinical experience and many attempts tuned by trial and error, I have come up with a proven protocol to help you sleep better. It is my hope that you can apply this in your life and experience amazing results.

Number 1: Magnesium L-Threonate
Magnesium L-Threonate is one key product that can really help your sleep improve drastically.
There are a ton of Magnesium supplements and products out there. You’ll notice that in all of these products are magnesium and some other compound. That is because magnesium needs to be “married” in order for your body to absorb it.
The L-Threonate compound allows magnesium to cross through the blood brain barrier. This makes it particularly effective at treating symptoms of anxiety prior to sleep. It can also help with treating other neurological symptoms you experience when trying to fall asleep at night.
I recommend Life Extension’s Neuro-Mag. It is a powder form of magnesium, and comes in a tropical punch flavor to be mixed with water. Take this with 1 or 2 ounces of water right before you go to bed, and preferably after you use the next tip! Start with ½ a scoop (provided with the product) and work your way up to two scoops.
Number 2: Epsom Salt Baths
Epsom salt baths can be very beneficial to your sleep. Some products come with a variety of scents added to them. Many of my patients are allergic to added scents, so I usually recommend just going with unscented products.
You can buy very large bags of this product for relatively inexpensive prices. I recommend you use one or two cups of your epsom salt of choice per bath, and bathe for 10 to 15 minutes before you plan to go to bed.
After your bath, you should take your Magnesium L-Threonate.
Number 3: White Noise
Using white noises in the background can really help your sleep go to the next level. There are a wide range of ways to get white noise to play while you sleep, but I recommend the BetterSleep: Relax and Sleep app available in the App Store.
If you cannot access the app, or would prefer a non-digital option, you can have a fan running in your room at night. However, I recently made the switch from using a fan to this app, and my sleep has drastically improved.
You want your white noise to be loud enough so that you do not hear the other noises that might distract you, but not loud enough that the white noise itself is keeping you up.
Turn off all electronics in your room, including house wi-fi.
Some people are highly sensitive to the electromagnetic waves and forces emitted by electronic devices. All electronics emit EMF waves in all directions. If your phone is too close to you during the night, those waves emitting through your brain can disrupt your sleep. This is simply fixed by just turning off the devices before you go to sleep.
