About The Sleep Detective

The Sleep Detective helps people who have tried everything and still can’t sleep. The programs use functional lab testing (DUTCH, GI Map, Neuro Focus panel, and HTMA) to find the physical reasons why they can’t sleep and addresses the mental aspect with life coaching techniques. We work with clients virtually all over the world.

The company’s values are:       

Walk the talk: We care about our health, we follow the DRESS principles, and we have a healthy work/life balance.
Growth mindset: We’re always learning, growing and improving ourselves and our knowledge.
Problem solving: We figure shit out and ask for help.
