man finding it difficult to sleep- I will help you with insomnia

I want to help you sleep better. Sleep is one of the cornerstones of our health and has become a real interest of mine. Sleep is not a luxury

I started to notice that a lot of the clients I was working with could not sleep or were having very poor quality sleep.

This sleep deprivation is quite common in perimenopausal and menopausal women, as well as many other people. So although I mostly work with women this is one of the areas that I frequently work with men.

So with curiosity and empathy as my guide, I delved into sleep with both my scientific and homeopathic hats on.

Sleep Some Facts – Hint there are no positives to a lack of sleep

insomnia writing lights on - sleep better with boyne clinic

Your bedroom needs to be as dark as possible, remove any sources of light you can, I realised I had my LED alarm clock brightly shining into my face. If you can get blackout blinds and dark curtain and /or eye mask

Melatonin is a natural hormone made in the pineal gland in the body that activates when the sun goes down signalling the body to prepare for sleep

If we are on screens late at night or our room is not dark enough at night this interrupts the process and then melatonin is not released


Exercise is essential but if you are having trouble sleeping try to limit high-intensity exercise in the evening


Seek out natural daylight as close to noon as possible. This helps to establish a sleep cycle. If we can get even 30 minutes bright natural daylight exposure we gain around 80 % of the benefits, this anchors our sleep pattern and stabilises our circadian rhythm, makes it less fragile. It also increases melatonin released by about 50 % at night

Temperature –

Reduce temperature to 18 degrees Celsius
