I just saw a headline that the Melatonin Industry has been asked to tighten standards after a 530% jump in ER visits for children.

I’ve written about ways to restore restful sleep and many other things much more extensively in the below linked article, so this is just a short article where I’ll mention what I think the root cause of children not being able to sleep is.

Just generally anything that is harmful to your or your childs gut will cause issues, because the digestive systems and your gut is in constant communication with your brain.

When I was a child I slept like a baby and woke up full of energy until I arrived in the US in 1985 from Norway (Where high fructose corn syrup is banned ), and started consuming items with high fructose corn syrup.

My health just fell apart very quickly. It only took a month to go from a happy well adjusted. high energy kid to someone who felt disconnected, had low energy, lots of allergies, and all sorts of other chronic symptoms (Muscle issues, etc).

In the 1980s is also when US Coca Cola bottlers switched from Cane Sugar to High Fructose Corn Syrup.

The linked article contains the details of how I detoxed from this after a lot of “Experimentation”.

First, the maintenance of the assembly. Man’s body is a perfect machine. I know my circuit and what’s good for him. Food what nearly all people eat, to me it is harmful and dangerous.
