Consider a Melatonin Test to Evaluate Sleep Cycle Issues
The most significant hormone for sleep quality and cycle is Melatonin.
Melatonin Testing in Salive was first used in the 1990’s.
Low Melatonin at Bedtime or High Melatonin at Wake can both cause Fatigue.
Salivary Melatonin... Like Rocket Science
NASA used Salivary Melatonin Assays on Astronauts over 25 Years Ago.
Sleep Depends on Melatonin Curves
Sleep Quality is Essential for Stress and Hormone Balance and to slow down the aging process.
Sleeping Pills are NOT Used in Our Practice
Bio-Identical Sleep Restoration never involves sleeping pills. Melatonin and Cortisol Curves are the Key to successful sleep management.

There is so much more to sleep than what is measured on a sleep study test administered away from home in a strange bed with a bunch of disruptive sensors. This leads to abnormal results that then lead to the mainstream medicine billing of insurance for CPAP machines and all kinds of drugs for sleep that often do more harm than good.
The most important sleep hormone is Melatonin which is made in the brain after we sense darkness. It helps us fall asleep, sleep deeply with the optimal time in the beneficial Stage 4 zone and in REM sleep.
New Image always works to improve everyone’s sleep as better sleep means a reduction in stress and aging. Prescription stimulants and sleeping pills that drug us to become tired don’t fix the actual cause of the insomnia at all. Like the Salivary Cortisol test, Salivary Melatonin tests can help reveal if stress is affecting melatonin levels at night or if there is excess residual melatonin in the morning.
Pharmaceuticals cure sleep issues long-term and many can have lingering side effects from the metabolites which can linger into the next day, resulting in drowsiness despite that seemingly good, but drugged night of sleep.
Any person with difficulty falling asleep or feeling refreshed the next day should consider having a melatonin test. Spit a little now, correct your deficiencies, so you can sleep better, soon.
