[Sleep Expert Interview] The Necessity of Sleep with an IBS Healing Protocol

You may not feel that sleep belongs in a digestive healing protocol but I promise you that it is next to impossible to heal your painfully bloated irritated tummy without at least 7+ hours of it. This is when our body can take the time to actually heal and rebuild that damaged digestive tract. ⠀ ⠀ This is why I brought in the big guns today Beth Wyatt, who gives women safe, natural and practical solutions to relieve insomnia and bedtime anxiety, so they can get the deep, restorative sleep they need.
