Restful Sleep Therapy

It will inevitably be impossible to heal troublesome symptoms if you are not able to celebrate restful sleep every night. That is how the body heals from the inside out.

Difficulty with getting to sleep and staying asleep is due to a sympathetic nervous system that is running full steam ahead. This is the nervous system that we need to manifest goals, finish marathons and change the world. We can’t get anything done unless the sympathetic nervous system is in working order!

However, you do not want an active sympathetic nervous system when trying to go to sleep and stay asleep.  How then do you (so to speak) put the sympathetic nervous system to sleep and activate your parasympathetic nervous system which will make it possible to celebrate a deep night’s sleep?

Try an icy cold treatment on the back of your neck to celebrate restful sleep. This does a marvelous job of shutting down your sympathetic nervous system. I demonstrate in the video how to give yourself this treatment when going to sleep. If you have an ice pack in the freezer you can try this therapy out tonight.

I have strong evidence that this therapy is worth trying out. I think you will be pleased.
