Insomnia is a common health condition with significant health consequences, including an increased risk for mental health disorders like depression, cardiovascular disease, musculoskeletal pain, and reproductive issues. Approximately 30% of adults worldwide report that they have problems with sleep, and untreated insomnia costs the average sufferer $5,000 per year. Inadequate intake of nutrients like iron, zinc, calcium, folate and vitamin D have been demonstrated to increase the risk of poor sleep. But how do you use this data to actually help clients with insomnia and sleep disorders to get better rest? In this talk, Dr. Kate covers the evidence regarding micronutrient interventions for insomnia and how to easily apply this information in clinic practice to get your clients real and lasting results.
