Addictions represent impaired relearning from sleep dysfunction
This is one of my favorite webinars. In it, I discovered that the celebrities that seemed to die of addictions were really dying of their self-medication of sleep dysfunction. From Michael Jackson to Jimi Hendrix, the doctors’ cures and the distillers spirits only made the problem worse.
But efficient sleep can help with the unlearning of addictions and therefore adaptogens that enhance sleep function appear to help get off things like Ambien.
