Sleep Issues & The Mineral Connection
Trace minerals, like Magnesium, Zinc, Copper, Selenium and Iodine are all vital for our health. In fact, trace minerals are needed for hundreds of thousands of functions within our bodies. The above minerals are vital for Thyroid health, for example.
Being mineral deficient has dire consequences for our health. Many serious long-term illnesses have their roots in a very simple and straightforward mineral deficiency…
So, it pays to be aware of the importance of trace minerals and to take steps to ensure you are getting the right minerals for your health. This can either be done through your diet or via supplementation. However, if you are otherwise healthy, obtaining trace minerals from your food is preferable to supplementing.
Those suffering from digestive issues will, however, struggle to obtain sufficient mineral intake from their food, even if eating a nutrient rich, organic diet. This is because those with a compromised digestion suffer from absorption issues.
Plus, Magnesium, the most important trace element for sleep, is much more easily absorbed through our skin, rather than through our digestion. This is why Wild As The Wind offer a Mineral Spritz product as part of our range.
Self-Diagnosing Your Sleep Issues
Sleep is heavily compromised in those who are deficient in Magnesium, but the same is true of those who suffer from yeast / fungal infections. And, obviously, excessive stress and anxiety are a problem for some.
So, it’s important to get to the root cause of your sleep issues, and treat where necessary. Essential oils are excellent for addressing the problem of fungal infections. But, if it is stress and anxiety that are robbing you of sleep, then these could also be caused by mineral depletion in your body. So, the good news is, increasing your mineral intake will improve your stress and anxiety levels as well as restoring restorative sleep for you.
In this article you will learn why minerals are so important for sleep, particularly Magnesium, and you will learn to self-diagnose the reasons why you have a sleep disorder. This article also outlines what you can do to remedy your sleep problems.
The Importance Of Sleep
We heal when we are asleep, and so restoring our sleep cycle is one of the most health-affirming things we can do.
Insufficient sleep ages us more quickly. This is because our body performs vital maintenance to our body whilst we slumber. Insufficient sleep means that vital maintenance is skipped, and things start to malfunction.
This leads to emotional problems as well as physical problems. Both are exacerbated by inflammation and toxicity, and insufficient sleep leads to systemic inflammation and toxic build-up.
The most popular essential oils for aiding sleep are:
- Lavender Essential Oil
- Vetivert Essential Oil
- Chamomile Essential Oil
- Deep Calm Essential Oil Blend
- Courage Essential Oil Blend
*Wild As The Wind carry nine different Lavender Essential Oils, and several Chamomile Essential Oil and Vetivert Essential Oil options. Please use the search box on the top right of this page to see all of the different options.

- Why Are We Mineral Deficient?
Stress & Digestive Health
Deteriorating gut health, along with highly stressful lifestyles, are two of the key causes of mineral deficiency. But, excessive exercising will deplete mineral stores, as will excessive sweating in saunas.
However, many of us are suffering from chronic dehydration, at differing levels, due to insufficient minerals / electrolytes in our system. This just serves to compound the problem. It is especially true if we are filtering our water and failing to remineralise it once all the toxins have been removed.
Electro-radiation, or EMFs, from non-native, synthetic sources, such as WiFi, and WiFi enabled devices, disrupt the healthy function of our bodies. Wireless technologies dehydrate us, which interferes with our uptake of minerals. It also causes the calcification of important cells within our bodies.
These important cells are known as voltage gated cells, because they are protected by an electrical current. Wireless technologies interfere with this subtle electrical current, leaving the cells exposed to calcium deposits. This simply means that the voltage gated cells are impaired when our natural energy is adversely affected by non-native energy fields.
*Magnesium regulates Calcium in a healthy functioning body.
Mineral Deficiency & Gut Health
A poorly functioning gut will prevent us from absorbing the nutrients we need from our food. Sadly, our all-important minerals are some of the first nutrients we fail to digest.
Digestive health is a vast subject, and I am unable to do it justice here. But, if you know you have digestive issues, then please read this extensive article on Gut Health after you have finished this one.
For the purposes of this article, all that needs to be understood is that mineral absorption is heavily impaired if digestive issues are present.
Insomnia & Stress
Many of us are unable to sleep owing to excessive and chronic stress levels. Again, I have written comprehensively about this elsewhere so please just follow the link to Stress Is The Cause Of All Illness for more information.
I have also written a great article about adaptogenic herbs. Using adaptogenic herbs is one of the best ways to address chronic stress and to alleviate health issues caused by excessive stress.
Sometimes the stress is more physically felt rather than emotionally. Excessive exercising, or eating with impaired digestive function, places our bodies under a lot of stress, for example.
Our Food Is Mineral Deficient
If you are eating conventionally grown food, and factory farmed meat and poultry, you will be mineral deficient.
Even organic food doesn’t contain the ideal mineral content, but it is a darned site better than food grown using petrochemical pesticides, which are largely poisonous in and of themselves.
Why Conventional Farming Is So Disastrous
Our soil has been largely stripped of any nutrients. Most of the minerals have been lost from our soil over the last few decades.
80% of nutrients have been lost from our soil in the last 70 years.
Food grown in depleted soil will be as nutrient deficient as the soil itself… and we will be as mineral deficient as the food we eat.
Intensive, large-scale farming, in the form of mono-cropping, has ensured extensive soil erosion. Also, large scale farming operations use lots of chemicals to artificially grow crops, whist at the same time, doing absolutely nothing to replenish the nutrients lost from the soil.
Sadly, we have really been fed a line where modern farming methods are concerned. They are claimed to improve efficiency and crop yield, but, in reality, they don’t. Plus, we are told that using pesticides, herbicides and fertilisers is the most sustainable way forward. But, it’s simply not true.
Conventional pesticides, herbicides and fertilisers are all petrochemical, which means they are derived from fossil fuels… and, unless we’ve had our heads under a rock for the last fifty years, we all know fossil fuels are fast running out.
Anything which ends in …icide, like herbicide, pesticide, larvicide, regicide and suicide… means :: TO KILL. Sadly, everything within the wild is needed for the correct balance and health of the whole… to kill entire swathes of insects and plants will inevitably be disastrous in the long-term.
Organic farming takes care of the soil and ensures much greater nutrient density within it, than any other method of farming. It works with nature instead of against it. It encourages insect populations rather than destroying them. Seeing as 80% of food is reliant on pollinating insects, this is clearly a good thing. Without pollinating insects, which start the processes needed for plants to bear fruit etc, humans would be dead in four years.
If you want to improve your overall health, as well as your sleep, and you want a sustainable world for future generations, then perhaps it’s time to start eating organic?
Please note, wireless technologies are also implicated in the mass-scale depopulation of insect life on earth. Insect numbers are down at least 90% the world over from 20 years ago.
Because the consequences of stripping the earth of it’s nutrients has dire consequences for all living things, modern farming methods have been declared a crime against humanity as well as a crime against the environment, aka Ecocide. (RIP Polly Higgins.)
But, there is another crime being committed here. Farmers are being financially incentivised to grow certain crops in a particular way. This essentially means that modern farming methods, which are so devastating for all, have been subsidised, thereby artificially keeping chemically grown foods artificially cheap.
Food grown naturally has now got to be labelled as organic to distinguish it from the chemically grown alternatives. It is very expensive for producers to pay for the right to claim their products are organic.
This effectively means that a heavy tax has been applied to organic producers, and subsidies given to producers of food which is grown unnaturally, and harmfully.
What Does Mineral Deficiency Ultimately Mean?
If we continue to be trace mineral deficient the outcomes are not likely to be good.
In the short-term, we will catch everything that’s doing the rounds, because we need good mineral levels for effective immune function.
We will also have hormone issues.
As hormones are extremely important chemical messengers, which are used to inform our bodies of what needs to be done to maintain homeostasis, hormone problems will ultimately affect us at a systemic level.
I’m sorry, there’s no easy way of saying this… If we are chronically mineral deficient we will eventually get sick at a systemic level, which will eventually lead to potentially life-threatening conditions. And, of course, in the meantime, our daily lives will be made increasingly difficult as well.
One of the ways in which a mineral deficiency makes itself felt is in it’s ability to deliver night after night of sleeplessness. Thankfully our bodies are beautiful self-healing systems, given half a chance. And, they communicate with us to let us know when things are out of whack.
Sadly, however, we have entered a paradigm where we have been brainwashed into believing we should mask these signals of ill-health, and not bother to establish the root cause of their emergence. We have a medical system that is largely focussed on prescribing drugs to silence the bodies cries for help. Pain medications are a great example.
If we have pain, or inflammation, then there is something systemically wrong with us, that needs addressing. Often it’s a nutrient deficiency or a case of being exposed to substances (food or environmental factors) which we are intolerant of. It can also be emotional stress, etc…
And, if we fail to address the root causes of the problems, then we are doomed to keep on compounding the fundamental issue, with very serious consequences. Minor complaints, left unaided by corrective action, can lead to life-threatening conditions over time.
Heavy Metals Can Also Be An Issue
If we are mineral deficient, we are very likely suffering from heavy metal toxicity, also. This is because the body holds on to heavy metals if it is mineral deficient.
If you are forgetful, as well as unable to sleep, then you will very likely benefit from reading Heavy Metal Toxicity & Hormone Health.
The good news is, reversing mineral deficiency is very easy to do, so there’s no cause for alarm… Just read on to find out how…
But, please be aware heavy metal toxicity is implicated in all neurodegenerative disorders.
The main sources of heavy metals are, in no particular order:
- Food from farms using modern farming methods
- Injected pharmaceuticals
- Conventional personal care products, especially deodorants
- Amalgam fillings
- Our environment
Fluoride & Sleep
There are a good number of studies which have highlighted the role of fluoride as a neurotoxin, particularly its link to lower IQ in children. However, there have only been two studies into the relationship between fluoride and sleep issues.
Nevertheless, the results are pretty compelling…
A study conducted in 2021 stated that at 0.5 mg of fluoride per litre of water was “associated with a 34% higher relative risk of reporting sleeping less than the recommended duration for age.” This result points to fluoride being disruptive to the production of melatonin. The gland responsible for this is the pineal gland.
It is possible to detoxify the pineal gland with Tamarind.
Another study in 2019 found that a median increase in water fluoride concentration was related to an almost doubling of the incidence of symptoms, which can be interpreted as sleep apnea.
Mineral Deficiency Causes Insomnia
Once it’s understood that trace minerals are vital for our systemic health it’s not hard to imagine why mineral deficiency causes insomnia. Insufficient Magnesium, in particular, is a big issue.
In fact, according to the preeminent neurosurgeon, Norman Shealy, MD, Ph.D…
Every known illness is associated with a magnesium deficiency and it’s the missing cure to many diseases.
So, it’s not only your sleep that will improve if you start supplementing with Magnesium. Many other biological processes will return to normal when Magnesium levels are restored.
Plus, Magnesium helps regulate other minerals like Calcium and Potassium, so the knock-on effect will be significant.
But, perhaps more importantly, where sleep is concerned, low Magnesium levels make Vitamin D ineffective.
Vitamin D, which is actually an Hormone, is as critically important for sleep as Magnesium. So, a Magnesium deficiency causes a cascade of events which make it increasingly difficult to enjoy restorative sleep.
A 15 minute exposure to direct sunlight in the morning is critical for a good night’s sleep. It is also vitally important in determining the quality of our lives in general. Sunlight exposure is critical for the production of Vitamin D within our bodies. It is also vital for the assimilation of Vitamin A.
Luckily, the solution for insomnia, in most cases, is pretty simple.
Quite often, increasing Magnesium and Vitamin D3, and Vitamin K27, will do the trick.
*Learn why Vitamin D3 and Vitamin K27 must be taken together in Eating For Hormone Health
Finding natural ways of increasing these constituents is preferable, through diet and bone broth etc, but if your digestion is compromised, sometimes applying minerals to the skin is the best way forward. Magnesium Oil is one option, and then there’s Mineral Spritz, containing 26 different minerals, which is also useful.
I could not believe how much a few sprays of the mineral spray would help my overall health and sleep.

**If you take supplements to assist your sleep, please be aware of the following.
Minerals, like Magnesium, prefer to go through the skin as opposed to being digested via the gut, especially if you have compromised digestion.
The very popular Wild As The Wind product Mineral Spritz, as mentioned above, is one of several transdermal mineral rich products which you can consider.
Mineral Spritz also has the added benefit of potentially alleviating Eczema and Psoriasis, and often eliminates the appearance of dry skin, replacing it with really healthy looking skin, which feels silky to the touch. (Please read the feedback for Mineral Spritz on the dedicated product page for more insights where this is concerned.)
***Dry skin is very often an indication of Magnesium deficiency.
Epsom Salts are also a great way of getting Magnesium into your body, but there are environmental issues to be considered here.
Using a Mineral Spritz is a lot more environmentally sound.
Food sources of vital minerals are covered in the video at the end of this article. This highly informative video also covers all of the foods to avoid to optimise mineral absorption.
In addition, it mentions how prescription drugs interfere with our mineral absorption.

More On Vitamin D3
Vitamin D requires Vitamin K2 to be assimilated.
Do not take Vitamin D supplements close to bedtime, it will keep you awake!
It is much better for your body, and your purse, to get your Vitamin D from direct sun exposure every morning.
Vitamin K27 can be obtained from grass fed, organic butter and meat. It is found in very high concentrations in organ meats. Organ meats contain other vitally important minerals and nutrients that we tend to be deficient in. So, eating chicken liver pate three times a week would be enormously helpful.
However, we store many toxins in our liver. Animals are no different. Unless you are eating organic chicken liver pate you are likely to be doing as much harm as you are doing good. So, only eat organic pate and organ meats!
A Word About Mould
Sleep issues can also be caused by mould infection, as this causes mycotoxins within our bodies. If you have mould in your home, or you have been exposed to mould elsewhere, then this may be the cause of your sleep issues.
If you are hypersensitive to chemicals, perfumes and air fresheners etc, have chronic sinusitis or suffer from migraines, then your problem could also be mould… Mould will even cause hormonal issues, gout and diabetes!

***If you are hyper-flexible then you will be even more susceptible to the harms of environmental mould.
Ensuring proper nutrition is vitally important, but so is a good sleep routine. What we do in the run-up to going to bed is deeply important.
*Many natural health professionals are referring to healthy sleep routines as sleep hygiene, these days.
Sleep hygienists consider approximately 10.00pm to be the ideal time to go to bed in the main, with others believing an even earlier bedtime is optimally beneficial.
Because we do most of our healing when we are asleep, it’s best to be in the land of nod for the important daily maintenance schedule of the body.
Bodily Daily Maintenance Schedule
Eastern medicine determines the daily bodily maintenance schedule is based on the following timescales.
I’ve started the schedule at 9.00pm with the Endocrine System & Pancreas which, you will see, spans the 9.00pm until 11.00pm slot…
9.00pm to 11.00pm :: Endocrine System & Pancreas
11.00pm to 1.00am :: Gallbladder
1.00am to 3.00am :: Liver
3.00am to 5.00am :: Lungs
5.00am to 7.00am :: Large intestine
7.00am to 9.00am :: Stomach
9.00am to 11.00am :: Spleen
11.00am to 1.00pm :: Heart
1.00pm to 3.00pm :: Small Intestines
3.00pm to 5.00pm :: Bladder
5.00pm to 7.00pm :: Kidneys
7.00pm to 9.00pm :: Circulation
It is considered extremely beneficial to be asleep when the night-time organ processes take place. For example, the Liver, which is our major detox organ, fulfils many of its most critical functions in the early hours of the morning.
Sleep Disruption & The Liver Connection
I am regularly informed, on the days that I am ‘customer facing’ (in other words, out on a market somewhere), that people are consistently waking up at three ‘o’ clock in the morning. Fascinatingly, this is almost certainly due to some kind of liver issue, in most cases.
Our livers are being made to work excessively hard. Modern diets and modern stressful living conditions are really making themselves felt. In a lot of cases, our liver is overwhelmed, and can’t function properly.
If you have cellulite, wake at three in the morning, and come down with everything that’s going around, then your liver is almost certainly not functioning properly.
Whilst the liver processes fat, and cutting down, especially on bad fats, is highly advisable whilst we get our liver back in good shape… it’s actually the following things which we need to eliminate from our lives:
Sitting in front of computer screens is giving us fatty Liver!
Minerals & Immunity
People with lowered immunity tend to be mineral deficient. Our immune systems need minerals in order to function properly.
Aside from supplementing with minerals, detoxifying our bodies is another great step to improving our health and sleep function.
There are major liver and kidney detox protocols that can be embarked upon, but more often than not, a gentle approach is the best way forward. The following are very effective means of detoxification:
Chromium, *Copper, Iodine, Iron, Manganese, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Selenium, Sodium, Calcium and Zinc.
*Copper has been viewed by many as a problematic mineral. It has been determined that a lot of people are obtaining toxic levels of Copper in their diet, especially if they are supplementing with a multi-vitamin. According to a world leading expert on this matter, Morely Robbins, who has written a brilliant book on the subject, there is no toxic level of Copper.
*Morely Robbins also maintains there are many of us who are Copper deficient, leading to chronic fatigue, dizziness and brain fog.
Zinc regulates Copper in the body, and vice versa. If you are supplementing with Zinc you need to increase your Copper intake.
*We should only seek to obtain our Calcium intake from food, via leafy greens etc, as Calcium supplementation has been proven to cause serious health issues.
Be aware also, that more Calcium is robbed from our bones to process the Calcium in milk than is actually obtained from consuming milk products.
Ensuring we have a consistent source of bio-available minerals is vitally important if we are to achieve restful sleep as well as good overall health.
The body can only use ionised minerals, and so it is important to supplement with a good source of ionised minerals. In this instance ionisation means pre-digested.
However, this is not the only potential cause of malabsorption of minerals. Poor gut health will also lead to malabsorption.
Heavy metal toxicity can play a significant role in mineral deficiency. For example Aluminium will deplete Magnesium levels.
The way in which heavy metals tends to cause mineral issues is because heavy metals occupy the same binding sites as minerals in the body So, if we are mineral deficient our bodies will use heavy metals, from the air, water, personal care products, amalgam fillings, or our food, to try and complete the bodily functions for which minerals are needed. It’s a bit of an ‘any port in a storm’ type scenario.
In fact, having insufficient minerals forces our bodies to retain heavy metals instead of detoxing them. So, before we even think about embarking on a heavy metal detox we must first ensure we are obtaining enough ionised minerals every day.
And, we need to be sure our liver is able to cope with intensified levels of detoxification, because all of the heavy metals we start dumping back out into our system will have to be processed and sent packing by our livers!
If our livers aren’t coping with normal levels of detoxification, then mobilising heavy metals is a really bad idea.
This article on Heavy Metals reveals, in more depth, just how toxic heavy metals are for our bodies, and explains how we need to detox our liver before performing a full body detox.
However, when we don’t have any gut absorption issues, and our liver is functioning properly, then supplementing with ionised minerals does us a power of good. The ionised minerals actually dislodge the heavy metals from cell receptor sites, and replace them with the minerals our bodies need to function normally. Essentially, the minerals push the metals out.
This is what mobilises the metals!
*We need to bind these metals so that we are not just forcing the metals back into our bloodstream, where they can travel through the body looking for an available receptor. Some heavy metals have an affinity with our brains. The last thing we want to do is mobilise heavy metals so that they can make their way to our brain.
Please read the article on heavy metals to learn more about detoxification by following the link above.
Most of us are Magnesium deficient.
Magnesium is vital for a good many of our most important biochemical processes. Up to about 700 in fact.
There are a number of reasons why so many of us are Magnesium deficient:
- Soil depletion
- Modern Western diet
- Refined sugar ploughs through our Magnesium stores as we require a lot of Magnesium to process refined sugar out of the body. On top of this, sugar actually decreases Magnesium absorption and also prompts the kidneys to excrete Magnesium faster. As Magnesium is vital for stabilising blood sugar a rapid downward spiral is achieved. One of the key reasons so many of us are deficient in Magnesium is because there is so much hidden sugar and even tangible refined sugar within our Western diets.
- Stress, including physical, mental and emotional stress. If you suffer from things like anxiety and restless leg syndrome then it’s time to get yourself some magnesium mineral supplements!
*A good way of topping up our mineral intake is by re-mineralising filtered drinking water with something like Himalayan Rock Salt, as mentioned in Morning Detox Protocols.
Fulvic Humic Acid
Fulvic Humic Acid, aka Shilajit, is extremely mineral rich and has been formed from decomposing plants and animals a very long time ago. It is a very rich source of minerals.
Sleep Regulation With Ashwagandha
Ashwagandha is a brilliant, mood elevating, calm-restoring herbal remedy often used to help restore hormonal balance in stressed out women. But, many men, who are working flat out, are becoming increasingly reliant on the broad healing powers of this super-cure.
Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb, which means it replenishes where there is insufficiency in the body, and it also reduces where there is too much of something in the body. So, Ashwagandha is all about bringing balance back to burnt out systems.
One of the ways it does this is by exerting a sleep regulating influence on the body, as well as enabling a more restorative form of sleep to take place.
Tart Cherry Juice For Melatonin
The food with the highest concentration of Melatonin, our sleep hormone, is Tart Cherries.
Without sufficient Melatonin no-one is getting to sleep. Plus, Tart Cherries have been scientifically proven to reduce inflammation, and the symptoms of autoimmune conditions like Arthritis, Fibromyalgia and MS etc… These conditions are notable for symptoms such as joint pain and inflammation.
Transdermal Magnesium supplementation and Tart Cherry Juice may be the safest and most naturally effective ways of helping to beat your insomnia and increase the amount of sleep you get each night.
Studies have shown that the effective dose of cherry juice is the juice which has been derived from 100g of cherries.
The amount of melatonin in this amount of cherry juice is equivalent to 0.135 μg, and the dose of melatonin recommended for sleep is 0.5 to 5 mg. Thus, it would appear that the effect of tart cherry juice on sleep is due to more than just its melatonin content.
Tryptophan is a precursor to Seretonin production which is also required for sleep. Tart Cherry Juice contains a small amount of this.
*90% of our Serotonin is produced in our gut, so if we have gut issues, then our Serotonin production will be impaired.
*Obviously, cutting down on caffeine and sugar, (the two most common stimulants in the Western diet), and things like MSG, found in Chinese takeaways etc. is also important.
It’s possible to buy Melatonin supplements in the US, but not in the UK. You can buy Melatonin supplements from companies like www.iherb.com, which is a US online business which delivers to the UK. You will have to pay import taxes, however.
But, Melatonin is a hormone! And, as advanced as modern science is, we are a great distance to understanding everything. Supplementing with a hormone is serious. (Vitamin D is also a hormone!) And, we cannot be sure that we are not doing more harm than good.
So, getting 15 minutes of natural sunlight each morning is a much better way to go. Sadly, in the UK the sun is too low in the sky from November to March, to stimulate Vitamin D, so sometimes supplementation is necessary.
*Vitamin D plays a vital role in our immune function.
There are a few good organic brands of Tart Cherry Juice such as Biona. It is also possible to buy Organic Dired Whole Fruit Tart Cherries. These, of course, must be unsweetened or else you will do more harm than good. Nevertheless, the sugar content of dried fruit is always much higher than in the fresh fruit, so tart cherries are definitely best eaten when fresh.
Technology & Poor Sleep
There is no question that modern technology, in the form of smart phones, computers, tablets and TVs, is robbing us of the ability to sleep on a grand scale.
I very much hope you read the following article and take the practical steps advised:
In this incredibly informative article, Top 4 Supplements to Improve Sleep, Dr. David Jockers explains why sleep is so important, and what health issues we will develop if we suffer from chronic insomnia. He also discuses the importance of minerals and adaptogenic herbs for our health and improving our sleep quality and patterns.
If you have any of the following, then you will benefit from this video… insomnia, anxiety, fatigue, high blood pressure, migraine and clustered headaches, muscle pain, and cramping…
