Tossing and turning, checking the time to see another sleepless hour passed… It’s just another ordinary night.
You know what I’m talking about…
50-60% of adults struggle with some form of insomnia.
And the next day you feel tired because you didn’t get enough sleep.
That used to be me…But things have changed since I’ve implemented precision health recommendations.
And keep in mind it’s not always about exactly how much you sleep, but even more so what your quality is like. One night recently I slept for less than 7 hours, but my deep sleep is through the roof in terms of time and percentage (54%)!
I’m friends with some of the well-known health leaders and they’ve told me in private they don’t get anywhere near this much deep sleep.
And my resting heart rate is similar to an elite athlete. Strange because I only exercise a few times a week.
But the journey here wasn’t easy…
NEW Insomnia DNA Wellness Report
I have a high genetic risk for insomnia – greater than 89% of the population…
Unlucky for me, I carry the PER2 variant linked to a high likelihood of imbalanced circadian rhythms – likely the culprit robbing me of sleep…
It’s easy to see this as a bad thing, but it’s not.
Before I knew which genetic variants were at the root of my problem, I was on a wild goose chase for the right supplements, diet and “sleep hacks.”
Knowing about my PER2 gene told me where to focus: light exposure.
People with my PER2 variant often stay up later due to disrupted circadian rhythms (I could relate).
Early light exposure kickstarts the circadian rhythm into gear, which rebalances my internal clock by boosting my melatonin levels at night.
I targeted this and a few more of my “problem genes” and sleep hasn’t been an issue since – something I never thought I could say.
Do you get a consistent good night’s sleep? Do you wake up seven days a week feeling refreshed and ready to take on the next day?
If you answered no to either of these questions, your DNA may be to blame…
