Falling asleep is “an act of faith,” notes Tieraona Low Dog, M.D., author, educator and integrative medicine clinician, where humans must trust they are in a safe place to become unconscious for hours. It’s no wonder that botanicals and other supplements aren’t sleeping pills or magic bullets that cure insomnia. Rather, as Dr. Low Dog, explains, key ingredients can help reduce stress and can play a role in lifestyle changes that help address consumer sleep concerns. In this podcast with Sandy Almendarez, editor in chief, INSIDER, Dr. Low Dog covers:
- Botanicals and other specialty nutrients that she uses in her practice to help her patients achieve better relaxation and sleep
- The role health and nutrition brands can play in the emerging science of personalized nutrition
- Why good clinicians are crucial to helping consumers/patients in achieving better sleep and health outcomes
This podcast was recorded at the annual conference held by the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), which was held in Dana Point, California, in October 2018.
