Naturopaths are essentially natural health doctors. They are experts in natural medicine and dietary prescription and use a range of tests which go beyond a full blood exam recommended by your GP.

Let me give you an example using this months theme, sleep or should I say lack of it.

Glycine Supplementation.

Dr. Andrew Arnold states, Two human studies have recently been conducted analyzing the effect of glycine and sleep. Glycine has a role in the regulation of sleep, with a few theories proposed for its mechanism of action.

1) Glycine inhibits orexin neurons (a neuropeptide) once you inhibit orexin neurons you promote sleep.
2) Another pharmacology study has shown that glycine activates NMPA receptors to induce vasodilation therefor lowering core body temperature and inducing sleep.

In summery glycine can:

  • Improve daytime sleepiness.
  • improve sleep satisfaction and getting to sleep.
  • Reduce latency to sleep onset and slow wave sleep.

However, evidence also support glycine only has this effect when administered during the night time, not day so it’s actually a supporting agent and not so much putting to sleep, agent.

So you see Naturopaths are all about specificity and treatment customization delivered at the highest professional level.

If you are having difficulties with your sleeping cycle you may like to discuss this option with one of the Naturopaths at Cranbourne Family Chiropractic and Wellness Centre.
