Q&A with Naturopath Susie – Should I take melatonin?



In this week’s Q&A Thursday, I answer a question from Becky from Texas on whether melatonin can be taken long-term, and I share my own experiences with sleep disturbances due to stress and hormonal shifts. Listen in as I discuss the limited research on melatonin use and the importance of speaking with your healthcare practitioner to determine the best course of action for managing sleep issues during perimenopause and menopause.


Don’t miss the tips I share for reducing stress and promoting relaxation, such as body scanning and the four, seven, eight breathing technique. These methods can help shift your nervous system from a stress response to a relaxation response, making it easier for you to fall back asleep during those restless nights. If you’re struggling with sleep disturbances, this episode is packed with valuable insights and techniques to help you regain control over your sleep and overall well-being.
