Hi, I’m Maria Marlowe, a Certified Health Coach and author of Detox without the Deprivation. This is my weekly “Ask Health Coach Maria” series, in which I answer frequently asked questions that relate to health and wellness. Have a question? Ask me here.
Dear Health Coach Maria,
I’m currently in grad school, and mother to a bubbly 2 year-old baby girl. Needless to say, I haven’t had a good night’s sleep in ages. I lie in bed for hours tossing and turning before I finally fall asleep, and then it feels like the alarm goes off very soon after. I don’t want to start taking medication to help me—are there any foods that naturally promote sleep? Help!
