Achieve comfortable, restful, and restorative sleeping."—Kimberly Burnham, PhD, Balancing the Sleep-Wake Cycle.

"The hormone, melatonin, produced in the pineal gland and in the intestines is associated with brain health and sleep as well as the ability of your digestive system to recover from inflammation, injury and food poisoning.

The organs associated with the Earth elements are Spleen (melatonin, GABA), Pancreas (insulin) and the Stomach (acetylcholine)." —Kimberly Burnham, PhD, The Nerve Whisperer in Balancing the Sleep-Wake Cycle.

"I spoke with a police officer whose shift ran from ten at night to six in the morning. His main job was to catch drunk drivers. However, he has found himself increasingly pulling over tired drivers instead. He can’t impound their cars, so he usually ends up scaring them enough that they stay awake till they get home. And it is scary, because according to this officer, there is little difference between the weaving of a drunk driver on the highway and the weaving of a tired driver." —Kimberly Burnham, PhD, The Nerve Whisperer in Balancing the Sleep-Wake Cycle.
"These solutions are for people who want to have some steam left at six in the evening so they can enjoy the last part of the day without feeling like they are going to pass out from exhaustion.
