Melatonin is best known for its effectiveness as a sleep aid and regulating the sleep-wake cycle. Beyond sleep, research shows that melatonin benefits are profound and far reaching. Known as the body’s most efficient free-radical scavenger, melatonin has powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immune properties for brain, cognitive, neurological, heart, and cancer protection.
Join Dr. Gurinder Dayal, ND to learn how to optimize the powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger properties of melatonin in patient care. From cancer prevention and control to improved brain, neurological and cardiovascular health, melatonin goes beyond just supporting decreased pineal-derived melatonin availability (age or lifestyle related) for improved sleep. From his expertise in biotherapeutic drainage and homotoxicology, Dr. Dayal will discuss the relationship between sleep, melatonin and detoxification; recommend supportive therapy for nightly repair, regeneration and detoxification through increased duration of REM and deep sleep; and detail melatonin usage in conditions resulting from free radical damage.
Practical discussion for:
- Promoting extracellular matrix drainage with melatonin
- Melatonin and liver detoxification
- Using melatonin to support detoxification during sleep
- High dose melatonin (10 mg and higher)
- The importance of vitamin B6
- Balance natural rhythms of the body
