1. Cut caffeine. Completely. Anyone who suffers from insomnia shouldn't be having any at all. It will keep you awake, not to mention making you more anxious. Decaf coffee still contains theobromine, a stimulating chemical, so it is still detrimental to good sleep.

I see an awful lot of people of all ages who suffer from recurrent infections - be it chest infections or coughs and colds that just won't go away. Building immunity is something that naturopathic medicine does extremely well. It is about strengthening the immune system so it can fight back itself - a permanent fix, rather than just killing off the pathogen and waiting for the next infection.
I use herbal medicine for this - strengthening the areas that need it with specific herbs, for instance the lungs or upper respiratory tract, as well as building up the immune system itself.
