The 8 real root causes of Chronic Insomnia and/or Sleep Apnea

1. Vitamin Deficiency

B vitamins especially Thiamin, Riboflavin, Pantothenic acid, and biotin are absolutley necessary and nearly universally deficient in modern diets.  A deficiency will cause insomnia, the most common sign is difficulty falling asleep.  Look for B vitamin supplements that use niacinamide instead of niacin and low levels of B6 (pyroxidine) like my Restitution product found in the health remedies tab above.

2. Mineral Deficiency

Low levels of calcium or magnesium will cause signs of insomnia.  Most of these supplements have low bioavailability and will cause GI problems like diahhrea and others.  My Nectar of Gaia product in the health remedies tab above is an excellent 100% biavailable source. I'm thinking that Magnesium deficiency may be a partial cause of sleep apnea.

3. Strep Infection

Streptococcus bacteria both types A (chronic latent strep throat) and group B cause anxiety, panic attacks, and insomnia.  Likely the most common cause of difficulty staying asleep or early waking insomnia from PTSD. These bacteria are treated with adaptogenic herbs.  My product nature's fury in the health remedies tab above is a powerful blend of adaptogens (triterpenoids) and bioavailability enhancers (steroidal saponins).  I'm thinking streptococcus may be a partial cause of sleep apnea too.

4. Campylobacter Infection

This is a super common gut infecting microbe that can cause real problems at high levels but at lower levels more subtle symptoms including insomnia.  This bacteria has a nerve toxic effect and will cause intermittent sharp pains all over the body that are short lived.  Also this bacteria's toxins seem to interfere with REM sleep causing "brain buzzing" and "brain zaps" that can be countered with extra serotonin since serotonin is a powerful antioxidant.  However to kill this bacteria is kind of tough.  Ginger, calendula, and chamomile counter it well and will help reverse its insomnia producing effects.  B. Longum is a probiotic that research suggests may help supress this bacteria as well.

5. Proteus Infection

This bacteria commonly infects the kidneys producing chronic low level infection that may not be apparent.  My biggest indicator is chronic low back pain.  Not only does this bacteria convert the incredibly important chelator histidine amino acid into histamine producing allergies, but also it seems to cause restless leg syndrome in conjunction with Campylobacter.  Restless legs is a major cause of insomnia.  If you feel like you need to stretch to fall back asleep it could be this bacteria.  Also if you have trouble falling asleep you may have this bacteria. Alkalizing the urine with potassium bicarbonate helps reduce the negative effect of this bacteria.  The herbs (essential oils) that can kill this bacteria best are eucalyptus, clove, oregano, and thyme.

6. Pineal Calcification

And finally pineal calcification.  The pineal gland produces melatonin from serotonin which regulates the sleep cycle.  If taking supplemental melatonin regularly helps you sleep then your pineal gland is probably calcified.  This calcification is caused not primarily by excess calcium, but rather excess fluoride.  Reduce your fluoride exposure from tap water and especially toothpaste, and use citric acid to chelate it.  My product Staybl was designed to chelate fluoride and aluminum from the body and is found in the health remedies tab above.

7.  Antioxidant deficiency.

Antioxidant deficiency may be a large part of why all of these organisms and deficiencies cause insomnia.  But any thing else which depletes antioxidants like Clostridium Botulinum (Botulism) can also cause insomnia.  Resveratrol and bioavailability enhanced quercitin can help not only counter the botulinum toxin but also kill off that bacteria from the gut.

8. Listeria gut infection.  This is killed in the gut with food grade diatomaceous earth.  This will make you nauseous so take activated charcoal to mop up the toxins released.


If you can knock out all 7 of these insomnia producing factors I am 100% confident that you can cure or at least sucessfuly manage your most resilient, untreatable, incurable, uncontrollable, and intractable case of chronic insomnia.
