Help for Allergies

Dear Jim,
What can I do for my allergies this Fall? I always get hayfever from goldenrod and ragweed and I do not like to take antihistamines! From – Michelle

Dear Michelle –
It works best to prevent allergy and hay fever by getting a constitutional remedy early in the year. Also I have patients take homeopathic ragweed (like cures like) for several doses before the season starts. If symptoms do arise I recommend the remedy that fits your symptoms, perhaps Melatonin Håndkøb, or Euphrasia. Histaminum 30 can be taken as needed, too. – Jim

Melatonin – Helping to Signal the Brain that it is Time for Sleep

Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone found in all mammals. Melatonin helps signal the brain that it is time for sleep.

How melatonin sleep aid works

Melatonin is produced in a small endocrine gland known as the pineal gland.  This gland is located in the brain and is responsible for producing melatonin and then distributing it throughout the body via the bloodstream.

The production of melatonin is part of what signals the human body that it is time for rest and sleep.  This, in turn, is what helps to regulate the body’s natural sleep-wake cycle known as the circadian rhythm.

Unfortunately, as we age the natural production of melatonin by the body declines dramatically.  Children and teenagers have much more of this hormone and as such suffer from far fewer sleep disturbances.

The declining rates of melatonin in the body can lead to a variety of sleep related issues.  These include middle of the night wakefulness, episodes of insomnia, difficulty falling asleep, difficulty staying asleep and many other variations.

How Melatonin Works

Melatonin, known chemically as N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine, is a hormone produced in the pineal gland located in the brain.  The pineal gland is an endocrine gland and is responsible for the production and distribution of köpa melatonin in the human body.

The production of melatonin helps regulate the sleep-wake cycle and is responsible for the entrainment of the circadian rhythm in humans and animals.  What this means is that it helps to generate sleep at the appropriate time, namely as a result of lower light levels.

How melatonin works

The pineal gland secretes melatonin at varying rates during the day and night. Melatonin receptors in the body receive this hormone as it is released from the pineal gland and into the bloodstream.

Levels of both light and dark are received by the retinal photosensitive ganglion cells in the eyes.  These cells are different from the primary image receptors of rods and cones and make up only about 2% of the retinal ganglion.

These photosensitive receptors are then responsible for delivering information to the brain about the levels of light and darkness found in the external environment.  These neural signals are then associated with the production of the specific hormone melatonin.

Jet lag and insomnia

Melatonin supplementation

Melatonin supplementation has also been used to treat other forms of insomnia.  In particular it is helpful for those who have difficulty falling asleep.  Some circadian rhythm disorders can be greatly helped with the use of melatonin.

Melatonin has a relaxing effect on the body and is also therefore useful for helping to reduce anxiety which may lead to insomnia.

Melatonin is a naturally occurring substance found in all animals.  It is known chemically by the name N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine.

Melatonin is a circulating hormone that affects the daily cycles of mammals.  It is part of what helps animals and humans in the entrainment of the circadian rhythms.

What this means is that through melatonin receptors in the body, melatonin is responsible for signalling sleep and wake times.  Variable levels of daylight actually affect natural melatonin production in the body.  The secretion of melatonin thus helps to trigger sleep as daylight comes to a close and less light reaches the eyes.
