Our family has been struggling with getting one of children to sleep for the last 5 years. As a baby she slept, well, like a baby. But once she hit toddlerhood, bedtimes became seriously derailed. We would spend hours trying to get her to sleep – the stories, the cuddles, sitting with her, leaving her to cry. We tried it all. Like a jack in the box she would got out of bed over and over again, until she collapsed at about 9.30pm. Then every night, she would end up in our bed as she would wake in the night from her light sleep.
Starting school escalated the situation. Morning tantrums became a regular occurrence. She was so tired and didn’t want to get up. It was particularly disturbing that she was getting upset about her inability to sleep. She would ask why her siblings could just get into bed and fall asleep and she couldn’t.
We eat a really healthy diet, so we couldn’t look at reduced sugar or additives. I had to think more broadly.
Our fortunes changes when we did Bio-compatability hair analysis for her. This gave us a list of about 8 foods which her body was not dealing well with. We easily eliminated these foods, without having to remove any food groups entirely. We haven’t looked back. Now she goes to bed easily every single night, and stays in her bed until she wakes refreshed at 6.30am. This is life changing for us, we actually get our evenings back. This has had a dramatic effect on her school work and she has made huge improvements in a very short space of time.
The test is totally non-invasive. Grab the scissors and cut off a few locks of hair, that’s it. No blood tests, no skin pricks, no scratch tests.
If you or your family suffer from headaches, skin conditions, ADHD, asthma, behavioural issues or sleep disturbances, book in for an initial appointment with me. We can go through your health history and decide if this test is right for you.
