1) Golden milk (turmeric drink)
It’s an anti-inflammatory, cleansing and calming bedtime drink. Golden milk with its velvety texture (thanks to the coconut oil in it), is soothing and calming when taken at night an hour or so before sleep. It’s an effective deep and restful sleep remedy that is relaxing and soothing for any muscle or joint pain. Find great golden milk recipes
2) Warm milk (minimally processed, organic, full-cream milk)
This is a traditional home remedy for deep sleep used for centuries. Thanks to modern research we now know this works because warm milk contains tryptophan, an amino acid that increases the amount of serotonin in the brain inducing relaxation and sleepiness.
Warm milk with a pinch of nutmeg and a bit of raw honey works even better for deep sleep.
Goat’s milk for deep sleep – a client of mine recommended this to me as her go-to fix for a severe insomnia. Have 1 glass of warm goat’s milk 30 minutes before dinner, and another glass 30-40 min before bedtime.

Sleep is one of the most restorative therapies we have and it costs us absolutely nothing!
Before you grab for that bottle of melatonin, understand how the production of melatonin works. The hormones melatonin and prolactin are the drivers of our biological clocks. Melatonin production by the pineal gland is stimulated two hours after the eye perceives darkness. While melatonin can provide relief in acute situations, when taken long term it decreases natural production by shrinking the pineal gland. If supplemental melatonin is used, it should only be in small amounts (1-3 mg) and infrequently, not on a nightly basis.
Instead, try a warm cup of bone broth or raw milk before bed. Both are teeming with minerals that are helpful for inducing a good night’s sleep. Rubus Idaeus and Tilia Tomentosa are two gemmotherapy remedies that help the nervous and endocrine systems balance and bring relief to insomnia, irritability, depression and hot flashes. Two side effects of low progesterone are insomnia and snoring. Clinical research suggests that chaste tree increases melatonin secretion, especially at night. This, along with daily time outdoors, assists the body in having restful sleep.

In the pursuit of hormone balancing, we must strive to consider the long-term effects of our chosen therapies. Whenever possible, choose non-toxic therapies that encourage your finely designed hormonal system to adapt to the changing seasons of life.

And never underestimate the regenerative and recuperative powers of the incredible human body. It is possible to restore strength and balance to your endocrine system at any age.
Wise Traditions Diet -
The Wise Traditions diet, which is a varied diet based on the findings of Dr. Weston A. Price, is always the diet of choice for those with hormonal challenges. The Wise Traditions diet ensures adequate intake of a variety of healthy traditional fats, moderate to small amounts of pastured or wild sources of protein, generous servings of organic vegetables and fruits, lacto-fermented vegetables and fruits for gut health, raw and cultured dairy products and moderate to small amounts of properly prepared grains, legumes, nuts and seeds.
Iodine is critical, especially for thyroid function. Adequate iodine is essential to optimal health. Eat wild fish and wild seafood and sea vegetables. Use unrefined Celtic sea salt. Avoid bromide. Bromide interferes with utilization of iodine in the body (in glandular tissues like the thyroid, breasts, ovaries, uterus, prostate). Bromide competes with iodine receptors, displacing iodine. Receptors will bind with bromide in its presence. Bromide is found in commercial breads, pasta and refined cereals. Avoid pool treatments that utilize bromine, as well as pesticides.
Selenium is probably the second most important mineral for thyroid function. It is a vital component of the enzymes needed to remove iodine molecules from T4 when converting it into the more active form, T3. Selenium is also an antioxidant, protecting the thyroid gland and immune system. The best dietary source of selenium is Brazil nuts. One to two Brazil nuts daily will provide one with plenty of selenium.
Sulfur (MSM) also provides major support for the thyroid and liver and is involved in the liver’s conversion of T4 to T3, the most biologically active thyroid hormone. Sulfur-rich foods include whole eggs, garlic, onions, leeks and others.
Zinc is necessary in order to make enough active thyroid hormone. It is also necessary for proper conversion of T4 to T3. Oysters are a delicious source of zinc, as is red meat. Copper and manganese help protect the thyroid from free radicals.
Vitamin D is required for the conversion of T4 to T3 and is needed for TSH production in the pituitary. Sunshine, lard from pastured pigs, raw milk and unrefined cod liver oil are excellent sources of vitamin D. Vitamin E is another antioxidant important for optimal thyroid function, protecting the thyroid from cellular damage.
Vitamin A helps to balance the correct levels of thyroid hormones. Adequate vitamin A levels are needed for proper thyroid and liver function. Vitamin A is found only in animal fats (butter, ghee, egg yolks, raw cream, liver, oysters, unrefined cod liver oil, fish skin, poultry skin, etc.) which are a vital part of the Wise Traditions diet.
Magnesium is another mineral essential for thyroid function and the regulation of conversion of T4 to T3. Cooked dark leafy green vegetables should be included on a very regular basis. The vitamins niacin and riboflavin regulate thyroid activity and contribute to the prevention of either an overactive or underactive thyroid. Niacin additionally works as an antioxidant.
