Getting Rid of Melatonin Supplements

    Hey guys! I've recently learned through Dr. Kruse how bad it is to take exogenous melatonin. I've taken it for about 8.5 years. The last two years, due to some severe health problems, I got very little sleep of any kind. Then, finally, after incorporating Jack's work (light environment, Magnetico, etc.), I'm finally starting to sleep consistently. I have had dreams three or four nights in a row now. I haven't had that . . . ever.

    My question now is, how do I get rid of the melatonin without going insomniac again? Obviously some of you will disagree with this, but getting sleep is more important than being perfect and not taking melatonin. However, I want to detox from using it in a way that will allow my body to start producing its own again. How should I go about that? Assume I'm already doing everything else correctly with light, magnetism, water, EMFs, etc. and that other sleep aids don't help. Assume this is going to be more of a process than an immediate cold-turkey. Thanks!

    (Phrased in another way, how important is stopping melatonin use in the hierarchy of important things to correct in order to be well? Obviously sleep is at or near #1.)

    By the way, I don't find that relaxing herbs or teas, progress relaxation, or any other supplement helps me, except Diphenhydramine citrate (Benadryl, basically, which I'm sure is as bad as or worse than taking melatonin).
