“Since I was a little kid, I've had a very hard time sleeping. It would take me 1½ to 2 hours to fall asleep, and I was accustomed to waking up at all hours of the night. I grew up watching my mother do the same thing, so it didn't seem that odd to me. I just chalked it up to having a busy brain. But as I grew older, I realized it's not normal, and when my mother and sister passed away a few years ago and I became the oldest person in the family, I started to take my health more seriously.
I found the solution kind of by accident. I had a client tell me during the Olympics that Aly Raisman and other pro athletes drink tart cherry juice every night because it has very high natural melatonin content. Even though I was skeptical, I started drinking a product called Cheribundi and watching a meditation video as I was going to sleep. About 2 weeks into it, I realized I was falling asleep as soon as I lay down. That had never happened in my entire life. I now drink about 8 ounces of the juice around 8 PM and head to bed around 9:30. I fall asleep within minutes and stay asleep for 4 to 5 hours at a time."
