Dr. Oz's Ultimate Sleep Solution

As many as 70 million Americans suffer from a sleep disorder and it's one of the most common complaints received in the medical community. If you’ve been tossing and turning, take back control with this sleep solution. Discover how to regulate your sleep cycle to ensure you’re getting quality rest.

Set a Sleep Schedule

Set a bedtime that works with your schedule, both during the week and on weekends, and stick to it.\r\n

\r\nIf you're four to six hours before bed, do not eat or drink anything containing caffeine and don't eat a meal two hours before bed.\r\n

\r\nAn hour before bed, turn off all electronics. In the middle of your brain is something called the pineal gland. It releases melatonin, the hormone that readies the mind and body for sleep in response to lowered light levels.\r\n

\r\nWhen you're 30 minutes before bed, drink water or warm milk to help soothe you.\r\n

\r\nAt five minutes before bed, make sure your bedroom is dark, quiet and slightly cool. The ideal sleeping temperature is 65°F.\r\n

\r\nHelpful hint: Reserve the bedroom for sleep and sex only.
