E08: Wired at bedtime? Sleep Techniques for Adults and Kids!

In this episode, Dr. Elizabeth shares how she works with parents and kids and introduces the tools she uses with her own children and clients to help kids calm their nervous system before bedtime, so they aren’t wired and full of energy and not able to sleep. She also shares her own story of going through a time in her life of poor sleep and the impact on her health and joy of life and the benefits of then choosing to improve her sleep. “It is worth it”, as she says!

About the Podcast

Don't Wait For Your Wake Up Call!
with Melissa Deally, Integrative Health Practitioner
As an Integrative Health Practitioner I have come to realize that we simply haven't been taught how to optimize our health, and that the average person has habits that are negatively impacting their health, due to this lack of knowledge, through no fault of their own. Public health and our school system simply don't teach us enough about nutrition, sleep, stress, gut health or how interconnected our bodies are! Modern life has us more sleep deprived, stressed out and the sickest ever, and I believe it is time to bring this education to you, so that you CAN be empowered in your health and you can then make the right choices for you and your family. The choices you make today impact your future 1 year, 5 years, 10 years + from now. It is never too early to start looking after your health, as Health is your TRUE wealth....without it what do you have?
