Might help: Give these a try to see if they can help your insomnia. They have no side effects and should not be a problem. These are both refined products and are not quite natural any more than white sugar is "not" natural. The definitions of natural are very nebulous and undefined so beware of depending too much on this labeling. Poison ivy is certainly natural, but that does not mean it is not toxic. ...Read more

Doctors and vitamins: I hope you understand that the various vitamin products on the market are something that most physicians would not have any expertise in. There are vitamin standards set by the government and daily recommended doses. These are all well displayed on the vitamin products available.
