Well DUH is all I can say.

They didn't speculate on the cause of the GABA disorder. Just that benzodiazapem drugs seem to work.

The stomach produces 98% of the serotonin in your body, serotonin is converted to melatonin in the brain (melatonin is the sleep hormone),

the key here is to avoid wheat, dairy products, soy and corn....all of which damage the small intestine villi (the villi absorb nutrients), these four also are high in glutamate and aspartame,

once the stomach is repaired it will begin to produce serotonin normally and abudantly,

this is turn will alleviate insomnia.

Amen, bobby. I suffered for too many years from insomnia...even as a child. Didn't know that all the fast food we ate was responsible. My mom was no cook and her favorite standbys were Campbell's soups, MacDonald's hamburgers, mac and cheese from a box, tuna casserole (mushroom soup and canned tuna), and most processed items as they came onto the market. I was born in 1947 when MSG was new to the industry. By the 70's, more and more serious symptoms manifested themselves. Thankfully, I sleep so much better now that I eat whole foods. MSG interferes with the production of serotonin and many other important hormones that effect sleep, appetite and so much more.
