In this video, Dr. Berg talks about all the possible reasons for not being able to sleep.

It is recommended to do long walks when you have sleeping problems. Potassium, Magnesium and Phosphorus are the key minerals for sleep and you can get it from leafy greens, vegetables and meat. Phosphorus is an accelerator of the nervous system and consuming too much protein and not enough vegetables could also cause problems with sleep.

  1. I need to watch this one again and again until I memorize every word. This video is worth a fortune! But I’m sure glad it’s free. God bless you, Dr Berg!

  2. This video was uploaded 3 years ago and I happened to see this couple of days back.
    I have sleep problems and long walks especially helped me to sleep better.
    I am yet to start Keto.
    Thank you so much. As many have mentioned below, Dr.Berg must be nominated for Nobel Prize for health advice.
    Our Doctors in India don’t talk about these things. As a matter of fact they get irritated if you ask them questions about the prescribed medication. Certain Ayurvedic Doctors do address the issues in detail and we Indians generally ignore them.
    Love from India.

  3. My father had a cardinal rule that no one in our family go to bed mad with each other. As I was a typical confrontational teenager, many a night he sat on the edge of my bed and we talked out our issues until we could “pinky” squeeze our fingers with a nod to our reconciliation. He was such a wise man and the best father.

  4. Really love his lectures. His voice and the way he explains things are soothing like medicinal yoga for the mind. Also love his subtle but effective humour. I’m a big fan for life!

  5. Dr. Berg, sincerely, THANK YOU! You are a gift to humanity. Thanks for such value, dedication and kindness to improving the lives of others. Love from Togo, West Africa.

  6. I really love how Dr Berg builds up his videos, nails every detail of a subject without turning in circles and in the smallest possible time frame, compressing all his research from we don’t know how much time and effort it took. So many other bad and boring videos on YouTube about the same subjects but mainly presented by narcissistic people or people that like to commercialize something for their own financial interests. Dr. Berg you’re the best. I wish you all good karma in your life.

  7. Wow, a very comprehensive yet “sweet and short” course for better sleep that billions of urban people need to know. Thank you so much.

  8. Dear Dr.Berg, my mom suffers from insomnia the last 8 years, after stepping in menopause. She has no problem to fall asleep but very easily wakes up in the middle of the night (sometimes even after just 2h of sleep). Would you be that kind to give an advice what to do to help her to fall asleep again during the night..? Thank you so much!!!

  9. Thank you Dr. Eric Berg ! Your YouTube channel is golden. Thank you for all the time and effort you put into creating these videos !

  10. Smh… This guy needs to be nominated for a Nobel Prize. He’s telling us stuff about our bodies that most of our doctors don’t even tell us. He tells us about the physiological roots of our issues. Meanwhile… at the doctor’s office… “I’m gonna write you a prescription for some opiods, and schedule you for an unnecessary surgery. That Lambo ain’t gonna pay for itself.” God bless you Dr. Berg!

  11. So to summarize, avoid tea, coffee and chocolate, eat lots of salad, exercise in moderation during the late afternoon, take a relaxing walk before bed, avoid the news or any potential stress at bed time, go to bed around 10:30 pm making sure the room is very dark, quiet with no electronics near your head. Do some slow, relaxing breathing when you get in bed and turn onto your right side when you feel sleep coming on.

    All the above certainly contribute to proper sleep but there are a couple of pieces missing. It may seem obvious but the right mattress is huge in good sleep. Many Americans sleep on mattresses that are either too soft, too hard or worn out. Finding the perfect combination of soft yet supportive is difficult but worth the effort. You have to feel heavenly comfortable when getting into bed. Room temperature is also important. It may seem obvious that you don’t want to be too warm and uncomfortable but finding just the right temperature, the sweet spot, adds to the comfort. For me, it’s around 72 degrees in the bedroom. In the winter, when the bedroom cools even more and I can pile on layers, I sleep even better. Finally, as mentioned in the video, breathing is huge but it should be more than just slow breathing with five-second in and exhalations. Try some deep breathing through the diaphragm where the stomach area rises and lowers. Take a long, deep breath through the diaphragm raising the stomach area as far as possible, which allows for better oxygen absorption. Then slowly exhale with the lips puckered to create an exhale that is just as long as the inhale. Two or three of these deep breaths will get you relaxed and provide the oxygen for a relaxing sleep. Sweet dreams.

  12. Appreciate all the information Dr. Berg!

    I go to sleep at 10 pm and wake up at 6 am feeling refreshed, I turn off my phone and laptop 1 hour before I go to sleep.

    I also don’t drink any caffeine after 1pm and that seems to help.

  13. I do the BEST deep breathing exercises that has helped me sleep no matter what! I lay in bed and try to relax as I breath in through the nose for 4 seconds, hold my breath for 7 seconds and slowly breath out through the mouth for 8 seconds. I do this 3-4 times and go to sleep faster then ever! Keep your bedroom dark, cold and no distractions in it like tv etc. Keep a journal and write down everything that bother you and what you can do about it, but do it like 1 hr before bed, not when you are laying there! Just a few tips that worked wonders for me.

  14. Doc I like your slightly longer videos because they have more details without going too long. They are just right. Thanks!

  15. This may be the best video, for me, that you have ever done, Dr. Berg! I will watch it again and again and take notes. Thank you!!
