GERD, Ulcers, Sleep....What's The Connection? Melatonin!

Karen Fitzpatrick-Dame, ChhC, AADP

If you are having difficulty with sleep due to parasite infections, hormonal imbalances, stress or whatever may be the case, and you don't want to rely on prescription medications which are addicting, there are natural options to help improve and even correct sleep issues.

Melatonin Detoxifies The Brain, Improves Gut Health And Helps You Sleep Better:

MELATONIN Is a BRAIN Detoxifier! When the brain is deficient in Melatonin, metabolic waste and toxic material taken up from our environment build up in the brain because it can't be removed as quickly as it's being produced or taken in, and wherever there's a large amount of toxins that the body can't effectively do much with, infections of all different kinds start to grow.

Eventually, brain function decreases in an increasingly noticeable way: poor memory, brain fog, ears ringing, insomnia, anxiety, depression, seizures, and on up to the neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and others. Melatonin deficiency is just one of the many possible causes of these symptoms, but even when they are due to something else, the deficiency of Melatonin will exacerbate them. Once the brain is detoxed using Melatonin, you'll be able to sleep again and the body's own production of melatonin will be restored.

Could it be that the extensive suppression of melatonin—both from dietary problems and the late-night use of electronics—is connected to the rising heartburn rate? Your body produces a whole lot more melatonin in your gut than it does in your pineal gland, and melatonin can be very beneficial for protecting against gastric damage. Studies show that patients with gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) and recurrent duodenal ulcers have lower melatonin concentrations than healthy subjects.

Melatonin has also been shown to be more effective than ranitidine but less effective than omeprazole in preventing stress ulcers—and melatonin allows a lower dose of omeprazole to be used. Compared to commonly used medications like proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) that can cause serious health problems, neither short- or long-term use of melatonin have been associated with any significant side effects. With all this evidence, it’s hard to deny the possible correlation between melatonin levels and heartburn, as well as its treatment potential.

Prescription Melatonin can be dangerous. It can be addictive and also cause hormones to become even more imbalanced. Homeopathic Melatonin is NOT addictive.
