When Americans are ask what the most common health problems are, few would think to say, “difficulty sleeping.” But sleep difficulties affect millions of Americans, creating a cascade of other health problems. American Sleep Apnea Association (ASAA), a leading sleep research group, is quoted:
“More than 50 million Americans already suffer from over 80 different sleep disorders and another 20 to 30 million suffer intermittent sleep problems each year. Chronic insomnia affects at least 10% of Americans. Sleep disorders affect members of every race, socioeconomic class, and age group.”
Those statistics are more than concerning. They should act as alarm bells for everyone. A significant percentage of American adults struggle with sleeping difficulty, which tends to create other health problems. Unfortunately, over-the-counter and prescription sleep drugs can produce unwanted side effects and are often habit-forming. That’s why Americans need natural remedies for sleep.
Why Did Immune Solution® Create an All-Natural Sleep Remedy?
Lack of sleep is one of the most widespread health problems affecting Americans today. Sleep is crucial to so many aspects of the body’s day-to-day functions. When someone is not achieving enough sleep, they are at risk for near-countless negative effects.
When asked why she formulated a 100% natural sleep supplement to help people sleep better, Immune Solution® founder/owner Jackie Page started by explaining how important it is for adults 18 to 60 years old to sleep at least 7 hours each night for optimal health & well-being, emphasizing proper sleep improves immune health, enhances brain performance, improves mood, reduces stress, and even helps one manage their weight. Jackie says:
“Not achieving enough quality sleep regularly raises the risk of many diseases and disorders, ranging from heart disease and stroke to dementia, obesity, irritability, mood fluctuations, poor cognitive performance, memory difficulties, lethargy, and decreased coordination and response time. Simply, the body’s ability to function declines if sleep drops below 7 to 8 hours. We were quite concerned to find 35.2% of all U.S. adults report sleeping less than 7 hours per night, meaning more than 1 in 3 are sleep-deprived. Nearly 70 million Americans suffer from a sleep disorder, with 30% of adults experiencing short-term insomnia. When I learned this, I knew I had to create an organic sleep supplement that would help people achieve proper sleep.”
Thanks to months of work building on over 40 years of research & development in the natural health field, Jackie Page and the Immune Solution® team created the company’s newest premium product, Immune Solution® 100% Natural Sleep Aid.

Tips for Achieving Better Sleep — Practices & Home Remedies
Happily, there are also easy, natural ways to make adjustments to your sleeping habits and easy, natural fixes to improve your sleep. Charlene Gamaldo, M.D., medical director of Johns Hopkins Center for Sleep and Wellness, suggests:[2}
- Drink Up. No, not alcohol, as it can interfere with sleep. For those experiencing sleep troubles, recommended alternatives are warm milk, chamomile tea, and tart cherry juice.
- Warm milk has long been believed to be associated with chemicals that simulate the effects of the amino acid tryptophan on the brain. This is a chemical building block for the compound serotonin, which is involved in the sleep-wake transition.
- Chamomile tea, which doesn’t have caffeine, is believed to contain flavonoids that interact with the brain’s benzodiazepine receptors also involved with the sleep-wake transition.
- Finally, tart cherry juice might support melatonin production and thereby promote a healthy sleep cycle.
- Exercise. Physical activity can improve sleep, though researchers aren’t completely sure why. It’s known moderate aerobic exercise boosts the amount of nourishing slow-wave (deep) sleep you achieve. But you have to time it right, as aerobic exercise releases endorphins (chemicals that keep you awake) and can raise core body temperature; this spike signals the body it’s time to get up & go. That considered, avoid working out within 2 hours of bedtime
- Keep Cool. The ideal sleep temperature for your thermostat is between 65° F and 72° F. Keep the room as cool as possible, and wear cotton or breathable fabrics to bed.
- Go Dark. If you wake and need to get out of bed, don’t flick on ambient lighting, Instead, use a low-light light source (flashlight, nightlight) to guide your way. Doing so offers less visual disruption. If you do wake, it could take up to 30 minutes (completely normal) to drift back to sleep.
Immune Solution® founder/owner Jackie Page continues the “Go Dark” notion:
- Unplug. Melatonin, a hormone long associated with control of the sleep-wake cycle, is naturally released in the brain 4 hours before we feel a sense of sleepiness, triggered by the body’s response to reduced light exposure, which should naturally happen at night. These days, though, ambient lights abound after it’s dark outside—whether from your TV, laptop, phone, or other device. This exposure to unnatural light prevents melatonin release, which can make it difficult to fall asleep. Ceasing the use of electronic devices at least 30 minutes before retiring to bed is good recommended practice. And “unplugging” will quiet the mind, setting the stage for restful slumber.
Jackie further suggests other helpful natural remedies for better sleep:
Food and Diet.
As for milk, I am a proponent of organic (antibiotic & GMO-free) and/or grass-fed (“grassmilk”), as these options are deemed healthier. Limit your intake of sugar, caffeine, and nicotine. Sugar can give a burst of short-lived energy and cause uneven blood sugar levels. Sleep is disrupted when blood sugar levels fall during the night. Caffeine & nicotine can have a pronounced negative effect on sleep; both can cause insomnia & restlessness. Try eating carbohydrate snacks such as whole-grain crackers before bedtime. Also include foods rich in vitamin B6 (found in milk, wheat germ, sunflower seeds, pistachios, chickpeas, bananas, and numerous others). B6 enhances the body’s conversion of tryptophan. The mineral magnesium is a natural sedative. Magnesium deficiency can cause health problems, including difficulty sleeping, Foods rich in magnesium include legumes and seeds, almonds, cashews, Brewer’s yeast, wheat bran, whole grains, and dark, leafy green vegetables.
Light exposure helps tell the body when to sleep and when to wake. If you’ve trouble falling asleep at night, try an outdoor walk upon waking in the morning.
Meditation and Relaxation Techniques.
During meditation, you direct your attention to a point of focus: a sound, a word, or even your breathing. Increase awareness, relax your body, and calm your mind with regular meditation. Slow breathing, and reduce stress hormone levels—all factors promoting sleep. Other relaxing techniques to improve sleep quality include mindfulness, yoga, Tai chi, hypnosis, acupuncture, and aromatherapy. In aromatherapy, essential oil absorption is found more helpful than aromatic inhalation. One of the most soothing essential oils, used a folk remedy, is English lavender. Try adding several drops of lavender oil to a warm bath—helping decrease body temperature, promoting sleep. Also, try placing 1-2 drops of lavender oil on your pillowcase or putting a lavender sachet under your pillow. A few other aromatherapy essential oils believed to help with sleep include chamomile, cedarwood, eucalyptus, patchouli, peppermint, and ylang-ylang. Educate yourself and use caution before handling essential oils.
