For years, I was challenged with not being able to remain asleep at nights. Not only that, I had severe stress which led to anxiety attacks. Sure, I had some stressful life events, but I was at the point where I thought I would absolutely lose it! With the sleepless nights piling up and the day-to-day stress becoming unbearable, I was at the point of simply cracking.
One late night, as I was channel surfing, a teaser came on about a Dr. Oz episode that would be airing after Jimmy Kimmel (or one of those late night shows). Anyway, the teaser said
“Dr. Oz will tell you how to get a good night’s sleep.”
Heck, I was awake anyway. I figured I may as well watch.
During the course of the show, along with several other remedies, Dr. Oz suggested that perhaps a MAGNESIUM deficiency was causing millions of people not to sleep. And that by simply supplementing with this mineral, the all-evasive S-L-E-E-P just may no longer be a stranger.
Of course, I rushed out the following day and bee-lined it to my nearest health food store. One important thing he mentioned was the you want to take a chelated Magnesium. Let me tell you, that first night, I slept as if Jesus had laid hands on me. Hahaha! I mean, it was THAT MUCH of a miracle to me that I actually slept through the entire night…and slept WELL.
Nowadays, I do have the occasional restless night. However, when I do, I can usually trace it to the fact that I have fallen off the Magnesium wagon. A couple days of supplementing usually does the trick.
