Are you getting a full 7-8 hours of sleep each night? Many adults don't. 

Dr. Ken Redcross has some natural solutions for better sleep: 

1) Understand how caffeine and alcohol affect you. A good rule is to not have caffeine or alcohol two hours before bed, but some people may be more sensitive. Find the time frame that works best for you. 

2) Keep your immune system healthy! A strong immune system makes for a more restful night. Consider a supplement like AHCC, which is clinically proven to keep your immune system healthy. 

3) Chamomile, lavender, almonds, walnuts, and tart cherries can all aid in sleep! 

4) Get the right bedding! Old, flat pillows can lead to back and neck pain.
