About issues with Insomnia

Insomnia is a common issue with many people, not just cancer patients. As with any health issue, you NEED to figure out the CAUSE. Some common causes include:

  • Cortisol levels – stress hormones are possibly the most common cause of insomnia. Often, overt or covert stress is inevitable given certain situations. Using adaptogenic herbs like Corti Clear can REALLY help. Conners Clinic Originals Corti Clear helps your body resist and recover from the effects of everyday stress. Components of this multifunctional formula have been shown to support healthy cortisol levels, help alleviate occasional fatigue, promote mental clarity, and support relaxation and restful sleep.
  • Brain Inflammation – inflammation from injury (like post-concussive disorders), infection that crosses the blood-brain-barrier (BBB) like Lyme disease, food allergies (like dairy or gluten), or toxicity (very common) will be a major factor that can disrupt sleep.

  • Family history (genetics): Sleep traits and conditions, including insomnia, seem to run in families – consider our Genetic Workup.
  • Health conditions – your physical health can affect your ability to sleep. This includes temporary illnesses like minor infections or injuries, or chronic conditions like Cancer, acid reflux or Parkinson’s disease. Conditions that affect your circadian rhythm, your body’s natural sleep/wake clock, are also factors.
