My son is almost 14 years old and has trouble sleeping at night and sometimes is up until 2 am then next morning is very difficult to waken.

  • I had the same problem with my son and now he is on the quick acting. I search out a product DermaSleep in internet and tried a suitable course for my son. I found his eating and sleeping are more manageable. You may read about their product at www.dermasleep.com I did a bit of correspondence with them before trying.

  • Hello,My 13 yr old son had chronic bilateral ear pain last Jan, then Apr., then Aug to end of '08. We saw several Drs, MRI's and Cat Scans, etc, etc. were all normal. He didn't snore at night, but discovered he was grinding his teeth at night.Our Chiropractor, who is brilliant, said that when kids grind their teeth at night, they have parasites! You can read about this online. It's called bruxism. He used a non-invasive test called a Stress Meridian Test, which focuses on the meridian flows of the body (Chinese medicine), and the test can detect any toxins, parasites, yeast, etc. in the body. Well, this test showed he had roundworms! He was treated with herbs to support his lymph system, liver and GI tract and also for the roundworms, over a 3 month time, and the ear pain gradually went away!The pediatrician doubted us, but when I told him that I showed my son what roundworms looked like, from a picture online, my son said he actually saw them in his stool, but didn't think anything of it to tell me about it!Even if standard physicians think of testing for parasites, the stool tests are a small snapshot of the issue, and can have false negatives.Anyway, my son hadn't been sleeping well for months, always a restless sleeper, with covers everywhere by morning, and at first we tried different pillows, got chiropractic adjustments, but nothing worked. It just took several months to figure out that he wasn't sleeping at night (also took forever to fall asleep and hard to get up). The reason: parasites are more active in the body at night. Gross...I know.Good luck....let me know what you find out. Find a good alternative health care provider to check for parasites.
