Let’s explore the topic of sleep and health together by letting me tell you a brief story.
It was 1934. Depression years. Very little money around. “Dr. Silver,” my grandfather, was standing on the corner of a hectic, noisy downtown street in the big city of Detroit, Michigan.
He was waiting for a friend who owed him two hundred dollars.
“Hey Silver!” Majeski shouted. “I don’t have the money but I do have something that’s even better. I know you're interested in health and I’ve got a health drink formula you can use to start a business. How ’bout I trade you the formula for the two hundred I owe ’ya.”
“Deal,” said my grandpa. (Gramps knew he’d never see the cash anyway so what the heck...)
And that was the day my grandfather took his passion for health and nutrition and started Vigere Foods, a health and nutrition supplement company. Vigere is Latin for “to flourish, be vigorous.”
My granddaddy took that formula and turned it into Flax-O, a nutrition drink based on the incredible health food flax seeds. He was way ahead of the times, because nowadays, flax is a big deal for health foods.
Gramps had a motto and slogan for his company that he fervently believed in: “America overeats and starves for lack of vital body elements.”
Well guess what...
A good night’s sleep is also a vital body element.
Yet people all over this pale blue world of ours are starving for peaceful sleep.
They don’t know how to fall asleep. Have trouble staying asleep because of sleep maintenance insomnia. Perhaps they have several sleep apnea symptoms yet don’t know what sleep apnea solutions are available.
Or they ask, “Are natural sleep aids safe?” And “What about over the counter sleep aids?”
That’s where SleepPassport.com comes in.
Hi, my name is Rich Silver. Who knows, maybe studying topics like sleep and health and nutrition is in my genes. Because in 1979 I went to college to study in a program for students who wanted to go to medical school.
Now I’m publishing SleepPassport.com so I can help you and your loved ones learn about sleep and health, physical effects of sleep deprivation, sleep apnea treatments, herbal sleep aids, and other sleep remedies.
The interesting thing is that my grandfather, affectionately called “Dr. Silver” by his customers, did the exact same thing I’m doing. He was studying medical books and medical dictionaries and publishing his health newsletter, The Vigere-O-Gram, back in the 1930s.
That was long before health newsletters and health magazines were cramming your mailbox, filling local newsstands, and being published on the Internet.
The guy was way ahead of the times.
With SleepPassport.com, I’m following in my grandfather’s footsteps and carrying on his legacy by publishing excellent, vital information about sleep and health, sleep disorders, and sleep supplements. Here's how:
My grandfather died at age 90. He ran his health and nutrition company for several decades until he retired. And it is my fervent wish that I bring to you the sleep and health information you need to flourish, be vigorous, and reach 90 and beyond.
SleepPassport.com is only the beginning. Because I will show you how having all the facts about sleep from the sleep experts will help you live the life you want to live.
In the many days and months ahead, I will show you how sleep and health and nutrition go together like peanut butter and jelly and bread. Neglect sleep and your health suffers. Eat poorly and have lousy nutrition and your sleep suffers.
Make no mistake. There is a wholeness to life. All the pieces must work together.
Both of these topics are serious business. Your life, productivity, and financial well-being all depend on consistently getting a great night’s sleep.
And as I said at the top of this letter to you, it’s all about doing what you love to do with your one and only life.
I happen to enjoy reading about sleep and health. I like to take the research in the medical newsletters and nutrition journals, make it simple to understand, and then share the information with people like you.
Here’s the bottom line. Sleep is a vehicle that drives you to better places in your life. SleepPassport.com is your personal driver.
