In this video, I’m going to show you how to fall asleep fast with a simple sleep technique. First, let’s take a look at the reasons why you might be having trouble getting to sleep.

1. Overtraining or too much exercise causes the sympathetic nervous system to go up, keeping your adrenaline high and preventing sleep.

2. If your room is too hot, it can interfere with your sleep quality.

3. High carb consumption and stress deplete vitamin B1. Vitamin B1 is essential for the parasympathetic nervous system, so a deficiency will keep you up at night. Try taking vitamin B1 before bed for better sleep.

4. Too much caffeine is a common cause of poor sleep.

5. Poor gut health can inhibit good sleep. Kefir as a probiotic can help!

6. Insulin resistance inhibits the absorption of tryptophan, a precursor to melatonin. This can interfere with your ability to fall asleep fast.

7. Some people have trouble sleeping after being on keto or the carnivore diet for a long period of time. This is because their insulin is very low. Try having a cup of berries with your last meal to fix this problem.

8. Sodium deficiency can cause problems with your sleep. This can be caused by fasting, OMAD (one meal a day), or not adding enough sodium to your diet. Low sodium can cause your sympathetic nervous system to go up which can keep you from sleeping.

If you want to know how to fall asleep instantly, try this simple sleep technique! You’re going to breathe in a way that synchronizes your heartbeat and blood pressure to the rhythm of your breathing. This will help stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, inducing sleep very quickly.

Try practicing with a timer first! Breathe in for 5 ½ seconds and breathe out for 5 ½ seconds. This will give you about 5 ½ breaths per minute. When doing this technique, breathe through your nose, and within minutes you will fall asleep.

    Magnesium oxide is so underrated! Helps me not only sleep better but also speeds up detoxification from the Thallium in our environment coming from car exhaust, cigar smoke, organic kale, etc. The lighter I feel at night, the heavier I sleep! 🙂 Thanks, Dr. Berg! Have a great day, everyone! 🙌

    • @paulbrooks2255 on February 20, 2024 at 2:54 pm

      Take glycinate. Oxide is junk

    • @seashackf1 on February 20, 2024 at 3:38 pm

      Oxide is the worst form of mg to take. It has the least bioavailability and absorption rate. It’s mostly used in low grade multivitamins and laxatives. There are much better forms like glycinate and citrate.

    • @Lemsnlimes on February 20, 2024 at 6:33 pm

      I’ve tested the glycinate. Didn’t do anything for me. The oxide fixes my lower back aches and pains quite well. Didn’t want to choose this lower grade magnesium but it seems to be the only one working for me

  7. @Dr._Wan___PharmD on February 20, 2024 at 1:23 pm

    1. Over training.
    2. Your room is too hot.
    3. Devoid of B-1.
    4. Too much caffeine/carbs.
    5. Bad microbiome.
    6. Insulin resistance.
    7. Deficient in Na.
    Reasons for being unable to fall asleep at night. Synchronize your breathing in and out at 5.5 seconds each which gives 5.5 breathes per minute through your nose.

    • @SouEuMesmoAqui on February 20, 2024 at 3:33 pm

      For sleep, how much B1 and in what form?

    • @feickpehbehehy on February 20, 2024 at 4:16 pm

      Thanks. Sadly I have everything except 1, which is actually not a good thing as well because I don’t exercise 🙁

  8. @MarieWilliams027 on February 20, 2024 at 1:31 pm

    Amazing video, Dr Berg. Precisely long covid seems to mess with the parasympathetic nervous system since it causes insomnia, increased heart rate, anxiety and panic attacks among other awful symptoms. Thankfully I’ve been recovering gradually by following your advice in your videos. Having some kefir and Magnesium intake before bedtime seem to help get a better sleep. Breathing exercises are also wonderful. Thanks for your continuous support 🙏🏻❤

    • @citizengkar7824 on February 20, 2024 at 6:20 pm

      You should research FLCCC. I Believe they also have assistant protocols for long Convid.
      All the best.
