Welcome to Our Healing Roots, a blog exploring natural medicine that returns us to the roots of health and wellbeing. Our Healing Roots, LLC, is a private natural healthcare practice and experiential learning center that advocates the safe use of integrated, natural medicine. Many healing ways have gone by the wayside with the advent of conventional medicine. While it is important to receive professional medical advice for serious conditions, there are many things we can do at home to prevent disease and maintain our health. The Latin word for doctor is docere, which means to be a teacher. Our Healing Roots wholehearted embraces the importance of teaching in healthcare, so that people feel empowered about their health and wellbeing.

Setting a Sleep Routine

One of the most affordable and effective ways to improve your health is to establish a rhythm to your daily routine. The most basic routine is going to sleep and waking up. Support your body's natural rhythm by establishing a consistent bedtime and waking time for yourself every day. This will help re-set a healthy rhythm for your body.

When I was exhausted the summer of my third year in naturopathic medical school, I began trying this idea for myself. It took several nights of practice, but I eventually got the hang of it and started noticing significant changes. It gave me more energy than any supplement. My thinking was less foggy, and my learning improved. I felt good. I no longer needed an alarm clock.

This Sunday at 2:00 p.m. I will be at the 306 Phoenix House in Tulsa for a session called "Sleep: Why It Matters and How to Get Some" with special guest Lacey Kidd, ND.  This gathering lasts one hour. There is no cost, but donations are graciously accepted.
