I talked to Nish Joshi to find out his holistic tips to improve your sleep, here’s his advice for a dreamy slumber. Finding out why you cannot sleep will help hopefully change your old patterns and give you some helpful new rituals to follow and improve your dreamy slumber.
Look at the temperature of your room, a cooler room is better to sleep in.
Overthinking can keep your mind racing on the pillow, try keeping a journal and write things down before you sleep to clear that monkey mind.
Stressed? Herbs like Ashwaganda, Chamomile and Valerian can help calm the central nervous system so the mind and body is preparing to switch off and able to rest and relax. I take Magnesium at night to help me relax and if you like a banana, try swapping it from morning breakfast to an evening snack as it contains potassium and magnesium great for sleep. I hope you find a way to get a good night’s sleep tonight.
About Nish Joshi
Nish Joshi, of Wimpole Street detox centre The Joshi Clinic offers a pretty in-depth list of wellness-centric services which includes his signature 21-day nutritional plan. He started his career as a registered osteopath in the UK, and his reputation began to grow when he brought dancers at the Royal Ballet back to health from injuries with remarkable results. His success was down to the fact that he realised the dancers needed more than just osteopathy – they needed targeted nutrition to help their bodies heal properly. Seeing the dancers thrive with his combined treatment was a ‘lightbulb moment’ for Joshi, and he realised optimum health could only be achieved if a holistic approach was used. It was during this time Joshi met and started to treat the late Diana, Princess of Wales. They soon developed a deep friendship, and Joshi credits her with being the driving force behind his truly holistic approach to medicine. Not only did Diana encourage Joshi to go back to India to further his medical training, but also urged him to train in the traditional Ayurvedic medicine his Brahmin family had used for centuries. Along with his osteopathic medical training, he pursued his passion for holistic healthcare with further training in nutrition, acupuncture, metabolic detox, herbal medicine and Ayurvedic medicine. . Joshi’s deep commitment to treating the whole person has made him one of the best known holistic practitioners in the world. He opened The Joshi Clinic in 2002 and sees private clients in major cities worldwide including New York, Dubai and Moscow. ‘You are a star Nish, and bring so much light into other people’s lives’ – Diana, Princess of Wales, 1997
