WellMind: A Natural Way to a Good Night’s Sleep

wellmind natural sleep aidIf you’ve ever taken prescription sleep medication, you’re probably familiar with the “hangover” they can leave. Melatonin works for some, but others experience overly vivid dreams or even nightmares. One homeopathic, natural sleep aid that works gently is WellMind (formerly Neurexan).

WellMind’s ingredients work together to calm the mind, readying it for sleep. There’s not the pre-coma drowsiness some prescription sleeping pills can cause. An overactive mind, or frequent insomnia, can be disruptive to our ability to remain calm in the face of daily life stress. Insomnia in the United States is at  epidemic proportions. A good night’s sleep is key to optimal health.

To give WellMind a chance, adjust your bedtime routine. After you dissolve a tablet under your tongue, consider reading something non-stimulating: i like to spend a half hour ro more with philosophy or spiritual readings. Avoid bright screens and put your technology away-  really, step away from all devices.  In a short time, you’ll begin to feel the effect.

Those clients and friends I know who’ve tried WellMind share that it does calm the overactive mind and really helps them to “wind down” at the end of the day. Used as a natural sleep aid, sleep is generally uninterrupted and best of all, no sleeping pill hangover or grogginess. Several friends and colleagues have replaced their prescription sleep aid with WellMind.

WellMind’s homeopathic active ingredients include:

  • Avena sativa – Relieves simple nervous tension
  • Coffea cruda – Relieves irritability
  • Passiflora incarnata – Relieves simple nervous tension
  • Zincum valerianicum – Relieves occasional nervous sleeplessness

A Natural Approach to Joint & Arthritis Pain Relief

T-Relief homeopathic pain reliefMany of us suffer occasionally, or even chronically, from joint pain, stiffness and osteoarthritis. Aging often brings arthritis pain, as do old injuries and new. Or it may be that you overdid it at the gym or on a hike. Even minor pain can keep us from doing the things we love, with the people we love. As our options for pain relief grow, I find my go-to homeopathic pain relievers remain T-Relief™ Arthritis Tablets and Ointment (formerly known as Zeel).

  • The T-Relief Arthritis pain relief ointment is suitable for relief of osteoarthritis pain, joint pain and stiffness when massaged into the area. It features organic oils as well as homeopathic pain relieving ingredients.
  • The T-Relief Arthritis pain relief tablets dissolve under the tongue, “reducing pain that causes lack of mobility.” It also features all natural active ingredients for relief from joint pain and stiffness.

A bonus: these products are safe for the stomach and our organs. Many of our prescription and over the counter pain relief medications can play havoc on the sensitive stomach. Being able to give our hardworking organs a break and still get pain relief can be a win-win.

As someone who actively seeks out natural pain relief options whenever possible, I can attest to their effectiveness. Ease of movement is essential to being able to demonstrate and spot our Pilates clients, so if I’ve overdone it the day before, I’ll turn to T-Relief.

In fact, I’ve offered the products at Body Fundamentals Tucson studio for over 15 years. Over the years, we’ve found that our clients swear by them, as well. A tip: Using the products in combination can effect even more immediate relief.

As always, it’s recommended that you check to be sure there are no contraindications for either prescription or over the counter medications, or the potential for allergic reaction.

If you have any questions about the retail products carried at Body Fundamentals, please feel free to ask at your next Pilates session, or give us a call at the studio: 520-299-6541.

In health,

About Heel Inc.

I’ve been selling Heel products at the studio as well as taking them myself for over a decade. Our clients swear by them.  Over the weekend I walked a little longer than normal and awakened at 3am Sunday morning with throbbing pain in my upper back.  Although popping a couple of Advil works, if I can receive relief naturally, that’s my first choice.  I took one Zeel and within 10 minutes had significant pain relief.   It’s not promoted as a product to help with sleep, but having less pain does help me sleep better.

I use Traumeel and Zeel on a regular basis and continue to receive quick relief from joint pain, osteoarthritis and muscle stiffness.  They can be used separately or together, and are available in creams, tablets and gels.

Sleep better with Neurexan and relax.

Improve your sleep! Use Neurexan.

How many hours of sleep a night do you get?  Sleep better with Neurexan.

There are several Stages of sleep: Light Sleep which is between sleeping and being awake. Then your body starts to relax its muscles and regulate its breathing.  When your body starts to fully relax,  your breathing slows down. This is when your muscles receive more blood, your energy is restored,  and needed hormones are released. Then, REM sleep. Rapid Eye Movement. During this time  your muscles are completely relaxed, your body is releasing hormones fully and your brain is busy dreaming.

Neurexan is a safe, homeopathic sleep aid. It can be taken alone or with other medications. Neurexan can help you sleep better at night.  There are no known side effects from taking this product. It’s also helpful for over active mind and anxiety. Many of you have asked me if i use this product.  I have and i do.  I’m sensitive to prescription medications and  try to avoid taking them if at all possible.  On  nights when I’m keyed up and my usual evening  rituals aren’t enough to relax my mind or body,  I take a Neurexan.  If it’s been a particularly stressful day, then i  take more than one.  The instructions are on the bottle and we have a brochure at the studio if you’d like more information.
