Go to CVS, Walgreens or RiteAid, and look for a generic multivitamin with all 8 B vitamins and 10 milligrams of pantothenic acid. Do not buy a multivitamin from a health food store or a vitamin store because the dosing of the B vitamins is typically way too high.

There are some specific issues that are not responsive to the RightSleep Program:

  • If you have Sarcoidosis you should not be supplementing with vitamin D.
  • If you are working nights and not able to switch to days, RightSleep is not for you.

If you do not have these specific issues, RightSleep may work for you but you need to be under the supervision of a doctor, in case you run into unexpected results.

The most accurate vitamin D blood level is the Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectroscopy (LC/MS) technique. The RightSleep Workbook shows you when and how to get the correct test.

If the only vitamin D level available to you is the less accurate immunoassay, then you should expect your results to be approximately 10-15 points higher than the more accurate LC/MS vitamin D test.

You will then generate your own “best sleep” level by observing what level of vitamin D produces your best sleep, and maintaining that level. Then, try to stay in that range.

RightSleep

It usually takes 3-4 months to see improvement in your sleep. Most people need to thoughtfully participate in the RightSleep program for a minimum of a year to achieve lasting, meaningful results.

In some cases, it may take longer. The longer your sleep has been suboptimal, the more time it may take for your sleep to be fully restored.

Taking a vitamin that you are deficient in can help you sleep better. But when you are no longer deficient, that same vitamin can have a different effect. That’s why the RightSleep Workbook teaches you how to listen to your body through a combination of checking blood levels and journaling.

If you’ve always been a ‘’light sleeper’’ or a ‘’restless sleeper” your sleep is suboptimal. RightSleep® can help you have more restful and restorative sleep.

Sleep Issues

Narcolepsy means you fall asleep during the day despite trying to stay awake. It has several possible causes and all can be improved by following the RightSleep program.

Headaches usually suggest that you have an underlying sleep issue. Your headaches will be most effectively improved by returning to healthy, restorative sleep by following the RightSleep program.

While you sleep your brain moves what you experienced today into permanent storage; it becomes a memory. If your deep sleep is shortened or interrupted you may notice memory problems. RightSleep® can improve your deep sleep and help your memory improve.

Child's Sleep

The RightSleep Program can be used to help children with mild to moderate sleep issues. Please see the RightSleep for Children Video Series (to be used in conjunction with the RightSleep workbook).

You know how cranky you can feel after a bad night’s sleep? That can happen to your child as well. Suboptimal sleep every night (even if your child appears to be sleeping) can have your child waking cranky, tired, depressed or anxious. RightSleep® can help your child return to optimal, restorative sleep and wake in a better mood.

One of the functions of optimal sleep is for the body to be paralyzed during sleep so that the brain can repair moving parts. Vitamin D deficiency can produce abnormal leg movements during sleep that prevent repair and cause leg pain.

Growth, brain development, learning and sexualization of the brain all happen in deep sleep. Children who sleep but have less deep sleep than they need can have growth and developmental delays.

RightSleep® can help optimize your child’s deep sleep and allow your child to improve their development.
