As many as 40% of Americans deal with insomnia, and most of those people use pharmaceuticals like Lunesta or Ambien to help them deal with it. Here are some natural tips to help deal with your insomnia, and get back on the sleep track.

"You're not healthy unless your sleep is healthy," - Dr. William Dement, father of sleep medicine "A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book." - Old Irish proverb I don't know too many doctors who have "sleep books" that include much else beyond Ambien, Lunesta, Rozerem, Sonata, Halcion, Restoril and Desyrel, the common drugs used to treat insomnia. Side effects like drowsiness the following day, confusion, inattentiveness, and drug tolerance and dependence are enough to push you through the withdrawal symptoms and not look back. Did I mention drug interactions, rebound insomnia and the possibility that these medications may mask underlying problems?

You know the feeling. It may start with a scratchy throat or with a few more aches and pains than normal. Or it could begin with a runny nose and a feeling of exhaustion. Yes, it's a cold coming on - or maybe worse - the flu.

Before you reach for the antihistamine, however, why not try an effective natural remedy instead? Essential oils have been used for centuries to fight the symptoms of the common cold. You can add them to your bathwater, diffuse them in the air you breathe or even apply them directly to your skin. Essential oils help the body fight off infection and serve to strengthen the immune system. In her book The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Essential Oils, Julia Lawless explains that essential oils can boost the body's defense system against bacteria, fungi and infections.

The massive heart attack which took the life of former finance minister, Jim Flaherty, on April 10 has focused public attention on the potential dangers of prednisone.

Prednisone is a synthetic corticosteroid used widely for numerous acute and chronic inflammatory conditions like asthma, temporal arteritis, autoimmune diseases (ie. Bullous Pemphigoid, Crohn's disease) and numerous skin conditions (especially eczema and hives). Its basic effect is to suppress the immune system's natural inflammatory response.

If you buy a true Himalayan salt lamp and use it regularly, you may just notice easier breathing, a calmer demeanor and better sleep in your near future.

What on Earth is a Himalayan salt lamp? Himalayan sea salt is believed to be composed of dried remnants of the original, primal sea dating back to planet Earth's creation. I've talked before about the health benefits of Celtic sea salt and Himalayan salt , but what if I told you that there are actually lamps made from Himalayan salt? It's true! They're called salt lamps or salt rock lamps, and yes, they're actually made from pink Himalayan salt and are able to light your surroundings - but they're really not bought for their moderate lighting abilities.

Folks have finally awakened to the impact of prescriptive opioids' highly addictive quality.

There is a drug-free health care option that has enjoyed a history of success, but has been cordoned off even though it is licensed by the Illinois Medical Practice Act: Chiropractic. As a chiropractor, I strongly recommend a couple of changes to allow a drug-free option:

Are you still smearing Vicks all over the kids when they have a cough or cold? This lovely winter weather is bringing on the cold and cough season with a vengeance this year but you might think twice before reaching for the familiar green Vicks jar.

Vicks Vapo Rub is said to cause breathing problems in babies. Vicks Vapor Rub contains ingredients that "can be irritants, causing the body to produce more mucus to protect the airway," according to a doctor who has been doing studies on the product. In a study released by the Wake Forest University of Medicine (in North Carolina), pediatricians warn that the ingredients of Vicks Vapo Rub could turn out to be harmful for young children and babies. The reason for this is that it can cause severe respiratory distress when applied.

It has been a common household name in over-the-counter pain relief for more than 50 years, but the popular painkiller drug Tylenol is getting a major labeling makeover following a string of personal injury lawsuits.

Even when taken at recommended doses, acetaminophen, the primary active ingredient in Tylenol, can cause major damage to the liver, potentially leading to liver failure and even death. In fact, acetaminophen is currently the leading cause of sudden liver failure in the U.S., as its toxic metabolites have been shown to kill liver cells. The drug is so toxic that as many as 80,000 people are rushed to the emergency room annually due to acetaminophen poisoning, and another 500-or-so end up dead from liver failure.

Rhett Earhart lies calmly as chiropractor Cecelia Mikles runs her hands down his spine. When Mikles reaches the bottom of his spine, she notices a little curve to the left. She extends Rhett's legs so they're straight and checks their length.

Rhett, who is 13 months old, is just learning to walk. But he's been a patient of Mikles since he was just 6 days old. "I just want him to be healthy," Dearey said. The Vancouver mom isn't alone in that desire, nor is she alone in seeking infant chiropractic care. A 2007 study estimates there are 30 million pediatric chiropractic visits each year.

If you have chronic pain in your neck or back, you know how miserable it feels day-to-day. Perhaps your options have whittled down to pain killers, anti-inflammatories, physical therapy or surgery.

There is no cracking or aggressive movement involved in NSA. Lewis and business partner Amy Gunderson focus on gentle, precise touch to your spine and the connective tissues around it. "I honestly was at a point where I was willing to try anything," said Madeline Kiefer, who calls NSA a lifesaver.

For people who take an antihistamine such as Benadryl for a cold or allergies, drowsiness is often a welcome side effect. But a Baylor College of Medicine sleep expert cautions against turning to this type of medication as a sleep aid.

"Many allergy sufferers know that antihistamines work for their symptoms but also make them sleepy. People sometimes turn to these medications to help them sleep, even when they're not sick. But the use of medication to force children or adults to sleep is generally not the best idea," said Dr. Philip Alapat, assistant professor of medicine.
