"How does it cause insomnia if it's meant to lower what is causing insomnia?"
I don't know that was just my bodies reaction to it. The first two night I got sleepy which was great because my insomnia at that time was horrible. Then next two night it made me restless and I could not sleep.
I have just successfully lowered my cortisol after 3 years of high and tons of symptoms. It took me less than two months but a long time to figure out the formula of stuff to do and supps to take. I really liked Relora, the Healing Codes, binaural beat meditation and NMT. In fact I lowered my cortisol a little too low, but just for a couple of days. My BP has been a little low so now I am taking licorice to get the BP back up.
