Off meds and sleeping all night (Maura’s story)

My client Maura came to me when she was struggling to fall asleep and would go days without sleeping if she wasn’t taking a sleeping pill. She was taking Trazadone and Lexapro to sleep and feel calm. She had to take a leave from teaching because she wasn’t sleeping.

Her goal was to sleep 7 hours a night, get off meds, and not feel anxious about sleep. By the end of our time working together, she achieved all of these goals!

"In 2 months I weaned off Trazadone. On average I’m sleeping 7-8 hours a night and feeling a lot better.”

Her test results showed:

  • Depleted sex hormones

  • Liver dysfunction

  • Mold toxicity

  • Mineral imbalances

  • H. pylori

  • Dysbiosis (imbalance of good to bad gut bacteria)

  • Gluten sensitivity

I recommended supplements and diet changes which she immediately embraced. We worked on stress about sleep and so her anxiety about sleep improved pretty quickly.

She even slept well when she traveled to Ireland. She emailed me after her trip: “I returned from my trip to Ireland yesterday. I was so nervous about sleeping in various hotels in a different time zone. I did great and slept really well. Each night I slept between 7-8 hours. My anxiety about sleep is so much better."

Maura was 100% committed to the process and because of that, she had great success!

I loved having a plan, knowing we're going to work together, slowly add supplements, then slowly take them away. I appreciated having support and being able to email you. Having someone in my court. I wasn't in this alone. And it doesn't take the whole time (6 months)."

In the video below, you can hear her story firsthand.

If she can get better, you can, too! Schedule a consultation today to get started.
