“Sunset Solution” SLASHES Heart Disease Risk
It’s well known that heart disease is a colossal risk to your overall health.
In fact, every 40 seconds someone has a heart attack.
The grim reality is, your mainstream doc won’t save you from this killer disease. He’ll just push expensive drugs and impossible diets.
Fortunately, there’s a far better way to lower your risk of heart disease.
And it all starts with how you spend your time once the sun goes down.
Once the sun sets, it’s only a matter of time before you find yourself winding down… and getting ready for bed.
And it’s this time spent on your pillow that can make it or break it when it comes to your heart disease risk.
You probably already know by now, that when you don’t sleep well, your mood is horrible and concentration is almost zero.
But not getting your 40 winks damages more than just your brain.
Scientists have known for a long time that there’s an association between interrupted sleep and an increased risk of heart disease, but they never knew why. Until now.
Recently, a group of researchers from the University of California at Berkeley found that interrupted sleep increases inflammation throughout your body which contributes to atherosclerosis (clogging of arteries).
The research team examined 1,600 adults and monitored their sleep while measuring their inflammation. They also looked at the levels of plaque causing calcium deposit in coronary arteries.
They found interrupted sleep was a HUGE cause of inflammation!
That means improving your heart health is as simple as getting a good night’s sleep.
Now, sometimes getting a good night’s sleep isn’t that easy. Especially in today’s world, there are many things on your mind that may lead to stress and anxiousness that make it hard to get a decent night’s rest.
Here are some tricks that can help:
- Sleep in a dark room and use white noise like a fan or sound machine.
- Try to go to bed the same time every night.
- Get off your screens (all of them) at least an hour or more before going to sleep – the light that screens emit can alter your sleep pattern.
- Good exercise makes your body more restful at night. If you can, exercise hard during the day – the harder the better.
- Replace your coffee with green tea. Green tea contains an amino acid called theanine, which helps keep you calm and improves sleep.
- Melatonin is the best natural substance to get your circadian cycle back on track. It’s widely available as a supplement.
- There are great herbs to calm you down and help you get a good night’s sleep, including lemon balm, hops, passionflower, and chamomile.
- CBD (an extract from marijuana) works well to establish normal sleeping pattern.
You can also use my sleep trick: try cutting back on sleep temporarily. You do this by getting out of bed at the same time every morning (no cheating), but staying up at least two hours later than you normally do – you want to be very sleepy when you hit the bed.

Dear Reader, A patient of mine, we’ll call her “Mary”, walked into my office one day, looking rather disheveled. She dropped her purse onto the floor, pulled out a water bottle and took a big swig. Seeing this, I quietly suggested that she might want to make another choice about what she was drinking. “What’s wrong with water?” she said. “I thought you were supposed to...
Dear Reader, There’s a nearly 40 percent chance that you’ll get diabetes sometime in your lifetime. And I don’t need to tell you how bad that is for your health.

Dear Reader, If you don’t already know, your body hates chronic inflammation. A recent study followed more than 160,481 people for 15 years.

Dear Reader, I’m going to be honest — I‘ve never been a fan of hand sanitizers. Most hand sanitizers use strong antibiotics or caustic chemicals to kill bacteria and viruses. When used all the time, hand sanitizers just end up creating super bugs which are resistant to everything we can throw at them. Nevertheless, there are times when you need perfectly clean hands and...
