Sleepless Nightmare

Karen H. has been plagued by a rare sleep disorder since birth, making it impossible for her to fall asleep. Her condition was so severe that she would engage in strange and extreme activities during the night, leaving her parents worried and desperate for a solution. Countless doctors and specialists were unable to explain her condition until renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Ivan P., an expert in sleep disorders, discovered that Karen had a deficiency in a vital neurotransmitter called GABA. This explained her inability to fall asleep and led Dr. Ivan to recall a secret he had uncovered in a Kazakh village known as the "sleeping village," where he had discovered a method to help people sleep better than ever before.

A botanist got fascinated when she heard that the main ingredient of the sleep treatment was produced by a plant. She traveled all the way to Kazakhstan to study the plant further and test its effects on herself. She finally reached this conclusion on this theory:

What Causes Our Mind To Stay Awake?

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that plays various roles in the brain, including regulating sleep. It has different effects on sleeping patterns depending on the area of the brain where it is released and its interaction with other neurotransmitters. For example, in the hypothalamus, dopamine can promote wakefulness and reduce drowsiness by stimulating the release of orexin and hypocretin neurons.

Continuous production of Dopamine plays a role in the regulation of the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), which is part of the brain that controls the circadian rhythm. The circadian rhythm is the body's internal clock that regulates when we feel awake and when we feel sleepy. Dopamine can interrupt the activity of the SCN and affect our sleep-wake cycle. The uncontrollable amount of Dopamine can decrease the levels of GABA in our heads.

Improving Sleeping Cycles and Patterns

The sleep-wake cycle is regulated by a delicate balance between different neurotransmitters, including gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and dopamine levels. These neurotransmitters work together to promote either sleep or wakefulness, depending on the specific needs of the person. When GABA levels are high and dopamine levels are low, the brain is in a state that promotes sleep. Conversely, when dopamine levels are high and GABA levels are low, the brain is in a state that promotes wakefulness.

The Sleep Foundation states that GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter that helps to calm down the activity of neurons in the brain, promoting relaxation and sleep. GABA plays a crucial role in regulating the sleep-wake cycle, or circadian rhythm, by inhibiting the activity of wake-promoting neurons in the brain’s hypothalamus and promoting the activity of sleep-promoting neurons.

Dopamine, on the other hand, is a neurotransmitter that is involved in the regulation of motivation, reward, and arousal. Dopamine levels tend to be higher during wakefulness and lower during sleep. However, Dopamine also plays a role in the regulation of the sleep-wake cycle by influencing the activity of neurons that promote wakefulness.

Valerian Flower Can Help You Sleep Better

People in medieval times used this plant as a natural sedative in ancient Greece and Rome. Based on trials, deeper sleep can be achieved by inhaling Valerian essence using its two main ingredients: Valerenol and Valerianic acid.

When exposed to the Valerian flower or its extracts, Valerenol increases delta waves in the brain of the user. The result is that it prevents any interrupted sleep during the middle of the night, when it is the most difficult time to go back to sleep because the brain has already had a few minutes of rest.

According to Healthline, the essence of the Valerian flower, called Valerianic Acid, will boost the GABA levels that promote calmness and result in a deeper sleep. Valerian is an herb that has been traditionally used as a natural sleeping aid. Using the extract from its flower is well tolerated by the body, and it does not cause any adverse side effects.

The chemicals Valerenol and Valerianic acid will act as anti-anxiety agents for our brains. These compounds prevent excessive activity in the amygdala, a part of our mind responsible for stress and strong emotions. It works by limiting the 5-HT hormone production that may disrupt the sleep-wake cycle in our body. And it stimulates Melatonin production, known as the sleep hormone, which places your mind in a relaxed state, resulting in your brain starting to feel sleepy.

Broke Away from Insomnia in 7 Days

Day 1

Meet Emily, who struggled with sleep troubles for months, leaving her restless and tired. Her partner, James, noticed her distress and was determined to find a solution. He recalled a friend who had faced a similar situation and found relief with a unique remedy - valerian oil. Intrigued, James suggested they give it a try. Emily agreed, hoping for a good night's sleep.

Day 7

A week passed, and both James and Emily couldn't believe the transformation. They woke up each morning feeling rejuvenated and full of energy. The soothing scent of valerian had become an essential part of their nightly routine. They were so delighted with the results that they recommended it to their friends and family, spreading the joy of restful sleep to those in need. They stocked up on valerian oil, making sure they never ran out of this natural remedy.
