Start there with that. There's a rich world for us to dive into Do you want to start any place in particular. Because i kind of had this dividing line where we have female hormones and thyroid hormones and can kind of oh was with one of those guys more interesting. Well we're we're interested in both and we have time so you pick where you're you to drive house that you can't you start. Let's start with thyroid. Is because this is something.

Why do i have joint pain. You're going to arrive at many different attentional reasons for those symptoms and so having order of operations in terms of how how to go through those causes can save you a massive amount of time and money that could be squandered on doing the wrong therapy

"You talk about extraction what. What is extra. Because whenever. I think of extraction. I'm like oh that it feels like demonic. I'm like what kind of thing are you extracting from the self. So when you when you're doing that work. What do you mean when you say extraction so extraction is similar to like an exorcism by in the religious perspective of regular tied down to a bidden rather throw up but it's about energies energetic. Imprint programming thought forms especially as impasse as we're going through this rise in ascension consciousness. More people are more comfortable with talking about shocker. As their bodies open up their their energy centers right. and that's a good thing But we also have to know that when we're opening ourselves up we also have to have boundaries of protection as were opening up so when we're living in a chaotic environment a city really busy sometimes those energies you know from the environment space can really penetrate your aura. You know you can have a great day in the morning But other people around you really bring you low.

Your energy writes sometimes. Sometimes you know it can happen on accident of people's stuff inside your space and it can show up in different forms of illness when there's a lot of people's energies or even of traumas that you've experienced that haven't been cleansed in cleared out from your space and result into nightmares. You having insomnia. You're not feeling comfortable. You kinda going through the space of dark place very mellow or very. I wanna say mellow but it's very very neutral to the point where it's kind of concerning you know like when you're not you're happy space so an extraction is media in an extraction and easy way to put it is. It's like a deep court

Avoiding Weight Gain During Stressful Times
"If you're worried that you have gained or are gaining way during the stressful time. We're definitely so stressful brittany with this pandemic and the ongoing at home and working from home and you're not the only one i'm hearing it more and more in clinic in fact a survey of eight thousand. Us adults published in the journal of obesity. Found at least a third of adults in the us reported. The corona virus pandemic has led to dramatic changes in their good health habits. Today we want to talk about some of these behaviors and ways that you can avoid weight gain during the pandemic or during any other highly stressful time in your life. Now that you know what we're going to be discussing this morning. I want to myself and our co host. I'm melanie beasley and have been a registered dietitian for the past thirty years one of the joys of my life is sharing the benefits of eating real food with as many of you as possible. I can speak to the benefits of eating real food both professionally and of course personally as well if you read my bio on weight and wellness dot com. You'll see that. I've had some very serious health problems over the years myself. So i truly know the value of eating real food for my own health at nutritional weight and wellness. We all believe health is so much more than the number on the scale does so true. It's so much more we have to feel good. You have to feel good. Everywhere had shoulders knees and totally. It's sad to say but is true. That many people just focus on their weight and now their overall health. Well i know that for me for years and years. This was really important. So i was always looking at what was the scale. What was on the scale now. What was going on internally. Well joining me this morning as you can hear. A voice is brittany. Vincent who's also a registered dietitian britney. You also have had some health problems that went away when you switch eating real food. Yes very transformative. I understand so share with us. Some of your pass health struggles with the listeners and how you overcame them well good morning everybody. You know I was in my early twenties and after finishing while towards the tail end. Finishing school to become a dietitian started having insomnia migraines. I was really tired. i will never forget. I was at a bar with a group of friends. And i like conked out in the in the booth because i was so tired. Oh no and i. It was not from partying. It was just ringing so tired. Exactly as like oh i know. That's when there's something going on. And i always say i saw the light finally an eating real food. I was looking at what i was eating and it was really just processed low fat. I mean everything that i was taught in two and so i made an overhaul of eating more fats Real vegetables purchasing better quality foods and then all of a sudden. My energy got better. I was sleeping better Eliminated gluten as well. My magazines basically disappeared and hers. Feeling great feeling as you should as a young adult and i think that a huge huge Switch that. I made was really the fat really because i was not eating those healthy fats. So making sure and getting that tablespoon of butter or olive oil avocado oil. Some not some avocado. I think really made made a huge difference for me. Plus just tastes delicious. Oh right so much. Easier to eat your veggies with some delicious fat on it and you know i think that For everybody listening that you can definitely be touched in many different ways of just changing changing your diet. Some just curious did you have anxiety that is sort of resolved. I did not do not while the insomnia would be racing thoughts but other than that. No no no. But i'm happy. That's that's over. That is not fun So you know. Understanding the science of nutrition to help to solve a personal problem is so powerful. I think that Experiencing these things ourselves just allows us to better help. Our clients visits us mercy and compassion for everyone who's walking through door or through zoom. Yeah right so you know britney when you were talking about that. I got to thinking. Let's discuss getting back to our topic. We're discussing ways to avoid weight gain during stressful times and certainly living in the midst of the pandemic has its own unique and unpredictable. Stressors right but many of us have had other times in our lives that we have also had highly stressful times so when i was going through cancer and treatments and all surgeries. I was stressed and my family was stressed. In lots of scenarios we can have tremendous stress. I think the most important thing that we can learn during these stressful times is how we manage our stress so true that we have some. We can develop some tools today. We wanna focus not on the stress but on how how each of us can increase our stress management skills. I want us all to focus on the foods and behaviors that increase our stress management skills. The first step is to to see that we have the ability to improve our bodies ma- how it manages that stress. Think of it as adding some tools to your tool box that you can pull from that. You have some control in how your body manages stress. Yeah and i hear that from clients who really are dedicated to eating real food throughout a stressful time and they comment. I am handling this a lot better than i. otherwise would be. It really is about chemistry. And i know people's character. It is in our survey reported in the journal of obesity included peop- people from different counties but also from different states in the in the us in the study found that the corona virus pandemic for many adults has led to a major decrease in their healthy habits and that they had that they had practiced prior to the pandemic and the study found two thirds of people eight more junk food well only a third eight healthier meals cooked at home again about two-thirds exercise less because gyms were closed but many rescue dogs and consistently walked their new dock. Some have more anxiety slept less where others were able to sleep longer to to less commuting time some people viewed the pandemic as a time to cook more healthy meals at home sleep longer also to have time for a pet. The sussex study also broke down the results by the different bmi classification such as normal weight overweight and obese ir that study in the study i noted to the study found the stay at home. Order had the most negative impact on the individuals in the obese category actually found. They found the anxiety. Scores increased most dramatically in people with obesity. The people with obesity also gained the most weight during the stay at home order so from results of the study. There are many different questions we could ask now number one do people of normal weight. In general practice better healthy habits for number two d normal weight people have fewer cravings. Find it easier to maintain a healthier eating plan number three to overweight and obese. People have more stress in their lives. Very good questions. Yeah do you have the answers necessarily but we're gonna talk. We're gonna right so to answer some of those questions. We want to share some basic lifestyle and eating habits to help you avoid weight gain during stressful times. Because i am seeing in clinic. I do see clients who've gained weight who've had a weight problems stressful and if it's a chemical chemical process and perhaps another way to live at this time is to find ways you can increase your stress management skills those tools in your toolbox that may be a new thought for you and yes you can learn and practice certain tricks to manage your stress whether it's during the pandemic or taken high school or college exam whether you're going through health crisis and i think time to dig into a demystify these tricks and the first trick to come out of the magical hat is eat breakfast every day. Not a sundays days. Breakfast is in spat especially important if you have stressful meeting or Chemistry exam or presentation or you studied all night absolutely. We're going to get back to eating breakfast but we have to take a break. I you are listening to dishing up nutrition and we are discussing how you can avoid weight gain during stressful. Times will be right back. Welcome back for dishing other for many of our clients. Tell us they need healthy new snack ideas so we decided to share a couple with you today. Make an egg. Salad with celery and expel or pressed. Safflower may or avocado mail. Then place a scoop of the egg salad and a half of a red pepper love I love deviled eggs as well. So my favorite is our salmon patty recipe that's in the weight and wellness way. Cookbook and nutrition guide. It's also on our website weight and wellness dot com ad and variety of raw vegetables. The vegetables to and you can Dip in some mayo at that. And then you've got this nice balanced out snacks so stay tuned and we will give you additional snack. Ideas have to say i love that I never tried it until pre pandemic one of our front desk staff gals was eating it. And i thought oh. I want to try this and she goes. Oh get a fork. I tried it. I was like it so delicious but when looking at the ingredients. I thought me when i wanted to make now i make it. You just plop it. Cook it and then take those patties and freeze them. They freeze great. Yeah so easy. It's awesome so stay tuned because we're going to have more of these ideas we are and i think it's time to dig into and demystify these tricks that we have the first trick to come out of the magical hat was eat breakfast every day. So fringy have for breakfast. I had leftover hamburger patty at six thirty. This morning did in samantha's and For something quick. I had part of an apple. Yeah wonderful e you got a gun. It wasn't gone. My husband always makes a eggs for me. He always gets up. When i have the radio show and So a couple eggs. And i also do half of an apple with sunbutter easy. Yeah got it done early in the morning forest feeling good for the radio show feeling over the radio show and you don't take out your energy you know and i always tell my clients breakfast really Tone for the day. You are going to feel better having a balanced breakfast. And then you're naturally going to make healthier choices because you're starting the day with a balanced blood sugar. It really makes the world of difference. And i the key to that balanced blood sugars like i had the eggs the protein and you had the hamburger patty protein and that kind of anchors not only your blood sugar but also begins the process of making those rain chemicals. The neural transmitters us that helps us with our day. Yeah yeah. I have absolutely recognized. I need enough protein in the morning just to feel good the entire day so i need at least three ounces. Good to to get me started. And i think that you know. A lot of people aren't in the habit of taking the time to make breakfast Your after something easy so you might sit down. Pour your favorite dry cereal in a bowl until the bolas fall. Always you know not a cup of cereal. Several cups of syria but that may be inviting obesity earnings -iety to come visit. There's been many studies. Demonstrating that high carb. High sugar diets often lead to anxiety and obesity. So what could be happening when you eat a big bowl of breakfast cereal which could easily have eighty one grams of carbs. When you consider how high carb that is in how high sugar foods affect your brain chemistry. It's very likely this unhealthy breakfast is causing a reduction in your serotonin. Level and serotonin is one of our. Most important are transmitters. You can think of neurotransmitters feel brain chemicals and serotonin helps to make us happy calm. Less anxious more focused all things that we that we need right. If you could just have a cup of serotonin But the next step we can just buy a coupla. Serotonin is that protein xactly so importantly we know a diet. High in processed carbs raise blood sugar level above normal and then the pancreas produces excess. Insulin leading to people being overweight or obese So when we say process carbs pathetic of the foods that come from a factory versus a farm Cereal is one. there is no serial bush. No there's not another interesting fact. Is obesity associated with having more anxiety one study found at the obesity. People have a twenty five percent increased risk of suffering from mood and anxiety disorders. Additionally chronic stress can also increase the fat stored in the abdominal area. And around our organs it is also an increased risk for type two diabetes heart attacks. High blood pressure so many risk factors we want our clients to avoid absolutely. And that's often a question i ask A new client. If weight loss's one of their goals asking them whereas there where they have gained weight where they're storing it can indicate to us. Hormonally what could be going on. And i'm sure you can agree. But i'm hearing more and more. People are starring in their abdomen that stress. And then also you know. Eating more processed carbs increases insulin resistance so can really be twofold mentioned earlier. We talked about if you have that bullet cereal and maybe skim milk. Possibly sugar sprinkled on. Tom It raises that blood sugar. And when your blood sugar goes higher than the body once it to It really is a stressful event entirely. Yup and when we have that stressful event internally we're increasing our stress levels yep so that's a simple tool really it is and you know. Our body doesn't know the difference between that stressor of eating cereal or the stress from covid. No good point. We respond to it the same way So keeping that in mind and again we have control of everything. We're putting in her mouth. So if that can impact stress that much We really need to take control of that is that is to have control over few things and that is one of i
"insomnia" Discussed on Today in Focus

So we have this sort of understanding in our country that we should all be getting eight hour sleep. That's not true. Some people need less sleep than that. Some people need more sleep than that. If you are a person who only requires six hours sleep in order to feel wasteful for the majority of the next day but you're trying to force yourself to get eight hours sleep your typically be lying in bed for a few hours unable to sleep which will then start to forge all these negative associations in your mind. Then you can end up having insomnia even though you just the person who requires less sleep. The next thing he does is dispel. The myth of there is an ideal bedtime so typically someone who is suffering from an so many think. Well i need to go to bed earlier so got more opportunity to try and sleep. Says that's completely the wrong way round. Do it what you need to do. Set a wake-up time and then you never ever from that wakeup time so if you need to be up at seven o'clock for work that day you wake up at seven o'clock on saturday on a sunday every day you don't you don't lie in an whatever ever feel like well then the cost of that may be that you your insomnia comes back. The idea is to establish a routine for for a long term insomnia. What this will do is sort of recalibrate themselves. So that if you always have a set wakeup time and then you find that you have insomnia annual e you drift off at like five. Am be still wake up two hours later than the next day. You're going to be more tired and you fall asleep a little bit earlier. What happens is then over a long period of time you start to work back and then you find your ideal Sleep window for how long you sleep in the way that he would do that. Is that fairly small increments. So to begin with. He might say right. If you are a person he needs you estimate six hours sleep. You have to wake up for work at seven. Am seven am shakeup. Time so go to bed at one. Am in the morning. And then you just do that religiously for five six weeks until you start to recalibrate and then if you want to see if it's possible to get more sleep you just simply move your bedtime back by fifteen twenty minutes each night so you would then. Yeah good sleep. It set twelve.

A Women's Guide to Getting a Good Nights Sleep
"Shelby. It is such a pleasure to have you back on untangle. All thank you so much for being here. Thank you for having me patricia. I love talking with you. Yeah you were one of our first. Meditation teachers asleep experts and you did our sleep. Basics course on meditation studio and now just come out with your first book called. The women's guide overcoming insomnia for storm. So proud of you. Thank you so much for writing this book we needed. That's for sure and let's start with this question. Why did you decide to write this book. There are books out there for just general insomnia treatment overall but i work with so many women of all ages from teenagers to older adults. And it's like women oftentimes either suffering silence or they don't appreciate what is treatable and what isn't treatable a lot of times think. Oh this is all just hormones. And there's nothing i can do about it and sometimes there are things that can't be done but a lot of times. There are things that can be done and they wanted a book that really addressed that women in particular. And how has it been received so far. Is that a silly question. Because you know this book so desperately. It's been fantastic. I am so excited with the reception. Overall it's funny. I have colleagues and patients who will be reading the book in like a coffee shop or something and then they'll tell me that other women will come over to them. Where did you get that book. I need so it's really just venus. The most surprising to the honestly about the whole thing is that men have come up to me and said things like is this only for women can help me to so men thinking that there were secrets in there that rank being kept from them but yes other than the hormonal chapters and all the women who is a lot in there that's applicable to. Yeah i think so too uae. Are we such a sleepless bunch of peak ball. I think there's a few things. So the biggest thing i think is that we're just distressed society. We just don't know how to put an end to the day anymore and there are some days that were going going going. We have our phones on us nonstop. We think that we can just put things down and crash and sometimes we can crash and go right to sleep. Oftentimes we wake up a few hours later opening up early. Whatever was on our brain right when we crash right there other times. We just can't turn off because we're going going going right until bedtime. And i think that's the biggest factor the other big factor for women especially or torments. That's a big thing that happens throughout the lifespan. So whether it's just performance -tuation women tend to have really poor sleep right beforehand or when they're pregnant or just after having a baby. There's a lot of anxiety and depression. I can happen. And that's for men to but paramedic pause. I think distressing variety depression or emotional shifts. There's a big firestorm of reasons why we're having a lot of insomnia one of the first things you were talking about just now with just about how busy we are and how our nervous systems are on high gear all the time. Do you think that it is really hard to sort of. Shut down our bodies before going to sleep so that were it's almost like we're in shock like our bodies are moving so fast so fast fast. It's like if you look at a poppy. That's it takes them a while to calm down. I always describe it to patients when they always the patients. Fight me all the time just allowing for. I would love our of winding down before bed. I that's even not enough but patients will fight me for a half hour an hour. But i always describe it as sleep is not an on off switch. If you think that you can just turn the light switch off and just go right to sleep. You likely are sleep deprived person if it really should be a process of a dimmer switch. Way or slowly dimming. Your body demeanor brain to wind itself down to land the plane gently so that you can men glide into sleep that makes so much sense and a lot of people use television as a way to mine down. But you're saying that that's not really a great way to wind down. There's reason so one thing the reason. We don't love screens staring it's like it's one thing if you're an hour before bed. You want to do a meditation. I totally all for using meditation now before listening to something. Put your phone down. Not staring at it. The problem is staring at a tv or screen right before bed for a prolonged amount of time is that it's too so one. Is that the screen. Your brain reads the screen the light from the screen just like a son and our brains do not like the sun to be able to go to sleep so we have. This thing called. Melatonin are brain's melatonin a hormone of darkness and it makes us sleep. People take pills of melatonin but we have in our brains naturally and melatonin comes out when the light goes out or the sun goes down. If you're staring at a screen your brain thinks the sun is still out. And that's the problem so you're making your sleepiness hormone melatonin surpressed and we've seen in data that it can actually take an hour longer for some people to fall asleep. The quality of sleep can be worsened. If you have a prolonged exposure to blue light from screens

I wanted to quickly talk about what breath work does for your body and a device that has recently caught my attention lately. There is helping me switch off my negative stress. And then we'll begin our session together all right so firstly stress. Activates your fight or flight. Sympathetic response leaves you feeling distracted overwhelmed and makes it difficult for you to get sleep. Stress also plays a key role in our evaluation sometimes especially to run away from a predator or to solve it challenging problem. You need the energy to make it happen. That's when your heart rate increases your cortisol levels rise and your blood shoots to your limbs but this is like stepping on your gas pedal of your car and it's not really sustainable because you need to at some point switch off your stress and start relaxing so their energy can be used for other functions like digestion and sleep and creativity when that switch off does not take place. Your body is constantly releasing stress. Hormones like cortisol making your breathing shallow and fast and sending your heart rates up and your heart rate variability down. What does hundred variability h. r. e. which is most reliable invasive biometric of stress measures the balance between your batta sympathetic rest and digest nova system. And you're sympathetic.

Dr. Chris Winter On Why Your Sleep is Broken and How to Fix It
"Chris. It's great to have you on entangled today. thanks so much for being here. Thank you so much. I appreciate it. I want to start by asking you this question as a neurologist. How did you originally become so interested in sleep and the problems that we all have with sleep. The short answer is is all very accidental. But this is something kind of intoxicating about sleep. It's very easy to have fun with well. It's funny. I mean it's good news bad news right because people love to talk about sleep because we have so many challenges with it if it were simple hey spleen split big can take it out if you do. This is not even necessary exactly but you can't like not sleep. Let's talk about that. That's an important sentence right there. You just said yeah. And i mean i personally have had sleep problems forever so i'm super excited about getting some of this information. I did love your book. Although i'm still not sleeping perfectly but i'm still not doing i'm supposed to be doing so that's air. Why does so many of us have sleep challenges to begin with. There's a couple of answers that one is. I think that for the first time we have generations. Now that are looking at sleep as a modifiable. Variable and not a trait okay. You're going to have to say more about that. What does that mean by that. Is i think that probably in the past if you slept poorly just kinda slept poorly. Didn't really think much of it and now with the idea. That sleep is its own science. There's all kinds of things you can do can alter the lighting you can do a sleep study to determine if there's something wrong with your sleep versus there's nothing i can do about the fact that i'm short of sort of big years and i've green is like those things are traits. I can't fix those. I don't know maybe a hundred years from now they won't be and you can choose your own hide. You can easily genetically altered your colored. This has now come into this idea. That sleep is a science not just sort of a casual observation. I also think there's a lot more out there. That is impacting our sleep. Where twenty four hour culture now. We're always awake where shift were culture. We can eat whenever we went to. We can watch. Game of thrones starting right now until sometime at the end of next week one episode after another of these. Were not things that we had. The cell phone is a huge issue with us right now. Our access to information and all these things were not a problem in the past. It was sort of boring to stay up all night. And you're living in a cabin. That had a whale fat lantern and papas fiddle on the wall. Like that was it. It was nothing to really do. And you work really hard all day while you had sunlight so there were things are naturally regulated our sleep a lot better than we have right now not mention the chemicals we put in our body cetera et cetera. So i think a lot of excitement about technology and moving into the future. But there's also some drawbacks particularly when it comes to a biological organism. The probably wasn't meant to do a lot of things doing right. Now when you talk about. Binge watching game of thrones or cell phones. Do you think that these. Let's call it addiction. Or even the lure of these entertainments options are these causing more insomnia in our culture right now. Or how do you see that connection. I think it's really important right off the bat define when insomnia is just. We're all very clear. I've got a bunch of slide shows that i've done for people. One of my favorite slides is a series of headlines that have come out of the last few years and they literally go like from forbes magazine and very reputable sources. why forty million. Americans can't sleep and the next one for the new york times. It says fifty million americans can't sleep and here's why we're talking about insomnia. We're not talking about people who can't sleep that doesn't exist. And that's very important thing. Say there are people out there who dissatisfied with their sleep. Have certain drawbacks or obstacles are trying to overcome but nobody out. There can't sleep and it's important because that's what most people associate in their mind with the idea of insomnia on song note that is that's when somebody can't sleep and that's not what insomnia is insomnia. Really is more of an individual who is not sleeping in a way. They want to or at a time they want to. They have gone to bed at eleven o'clock and it's taken them two hours to fall asleep. They woken up at two in the morning and is taking them an hour to get back to sleep so heart one is. You're not sleeping in the way you want to part two. Is you have to have a negative emotional response to it. Meaning if i meet somebody who says takes me two hours to fall. Asleep by next question is always. How do you feel about that. If the individual says auto remind can alight lying in bed away thinking about my day planning out my weekend. Forget what to do my wife or anniversary thinking about my celebrity crush. Your whatever it is. It takes the emotional upset to really create insomnia care so do phones does. Game of thrones create more insomnia probably but it also creates the flip side of insomnia. So when you're looking at the people that we treat clinic we treat. I can't sleep. We also treat. I can't stay awake
Who is Miles Morales in Marvel's Spider-Man?
"Games that release this week. I've been playing is spiderman. miles morales. which is the sequel to two thousand seventeen spiderman by sony and insomnia and i have to say this is miles morales story and you'll know miles morales. If you're not coming read from the movie into the spite of us which is excellent right. It might be the best. I've got the best buy movie you know. Even though it's an animated movie just fun. I think really good portrayal of spiderman it's waikiki and there's all these different spiderman anyway. This is miles morelli story and it starts with pizza parker. It's spiderman he's just. He's training miles to be also spiderman. He's not been training for very long and pizza us to leave new york city for awhile with. Mj don't know what he's doing. Yes to leave. Andy leaves miles in charge of the city s spiderman. So it's it's got this new the story and the way the people in the city react to you is kind of funny because it's like. Oh you're that spiderman a we were expecting the spider-man's zone so the city hasn't really they don't really see you as spiderman so you the new kid and the shoes and like you can do your as good as pizza. You've got the same power if not more powers because miles different power but the people in the say and not really that into him so yes to kind of win the city over and then you know early on in the game the city you know. It's very typical marvel as a. Let's say or mark zuckerberg type reruns this big tech company. And he's doing something we try and take everybody over. Somehow the miles gets about moving safe the city so it's the same game. Play really is a two thousand seventeen one you. It's the same city you know because it wouldn't be spied him on if it wasn't new york city right and if spiderman was swinging around london just wouldn't seem right to me so it could mean another universe but it needs to be in the same city right. This is the same. this is just the same. The same city was different about the map. Though is it's christmas time so it snowing and there are christmas decorations all over the city. So it's really decked-out to like christmas which looks a lot different to the spiderman game twenty seventeen which was in midsummer like right in the middle of summer so it looks different on that level but the game plays exactly the same so if you liked the game play. Is that gameplay. You know you go in. The city's missions in it. Though further the story this collectibles you can collect to spiderman and suits to collect his lows different suits that he can wear. One of. The sues is one of the coolest things i've ever seen in a game. And i was just saying to use it You know the s by into despite of us cartoons remember they animation style it it was kind of choppy but it made it what it was like because it was cool looking suit when you put it on. It makes the game the animation style so the whole game is choppy looking book. Cool looking. Because it's i don't even know how they did. They've done it like it feels like the whole of the city is running at sixty frames per second but the animation of spiderman is running way less and it's also kind of jerky but it looks like it around great be able to. It looks like it came straight out without cartoon you'll like. Yeah i can see what they're doing. It's it's weird to look at but it is cool. Because i was like. Oh the soup from into despite of us let me put that on and see what that's like and then i'm like oh now. The game looks like that animation. That's crazy so that spider man. Miles morales is out on the ps. Four and the ps five.
Solutions for Menopause Symptoms
"Well. Let's get started on today's topic. And i. i want to clear up a misconception. That many women still believe in the past. Many women were told that as we age and reach menopausal years we become deficient in the hormone estrogen. Now the truth is most women have too much estrogen. The excess estrogen. Let's just call it. Estrogen dominance and joanne is gonna talk more about that as well. That's right. I think a better way to explain. Estrogen dominance is if we compare the amount of the hormone progesterone that we have to the amount of estrogen that we have so. It's really we really want to be in balance and when we have too much estrogen and not enough progesterone. That is where we get the term. Estrogen dominance right and when we taught her popular menopause survival seminar in house. Most women were very surprised to hear they did not need more estrogen from hormone replacement therapy or hr t which has a lot of what they had heard from Their from their doctors And to be honest these women actually needed to detox. The excess toxic estrogens for their health. Now some of you might be wondering what are the symptoms of access toxic estrogen. So i want to share some information before. I answer that question because i find that women. Even when they're younger you know in their thirties or forties they can also experience those symptoms of estrogen dominance or excess estrogen and so again too much estrogen. That's the of what we've always been told her. That the misconception that we need more men right. here's just a couple of the symptoms that can occur from this. Estrogen dominance and so many women will experience. They'll notice a decrease in sex drive decrease in libido irregular menstrual periods swelling of the breasts breast tenderness. Even fibro cystic breasts. Disease and uterine fibroids sign of too much estrogen right. You had mentioned earlier Headaches or migraines the ones that come before the menstrual cycle. That's right irritability. Depression problems sleeping insomnia and of course weight gain is another one favorite topic right exactly. Oh in joanne You and i were talking before the show about how we have both had clients in the past who had come in and they would talk about. Oh i used to get headaches and migraines but they would be coming to us postmenopausal and they say oh my headaches and migraines no longer bother me right. So that's just an example of someone who was getting headaches and migraines due to likely s excess estrogen right and then with you know with menopause. The hormones all shift right and then the headaches and migraines style and that's not the only caused migraines but it definitely plays in because yachts of women have come in and say i used to get migraines but now don't anymore so we know that's true and there are also more Other more serious symptoms that have been linked to excess estrogen or estrogen dominance and there are certainly links to estrogen dominance and breast cancer. There's also links to uterine cancer. There are links between excessive estrogen and autoimmune diseases especially comes to mind the hypo hypothyroid shimoda thyroiditis. There is a link between excess. Estrogen and excessive. Blood clotting that can lead to heart disease so those symptoms can be very serious.

"Did you meet any patients from the clinic for him at wet. So one of the most striking stories one of Sussex Patience I spoke to was a lady who? She's now in her early forties but had had chronic insomnia since she was a young teen and she remembers lying in bed and she drew a dot on the wall of her. Becherman fixate on that and try to watch it for as long as possible before Falling Asleep. And sometimes she just stabbed for hours without blinking. Her insomnia was so bad she had three children and she would drop them at school in the morning. Having hands Was she would say you know one or two hours sleep. Perhaps it was more. But that's what it felt like to. Her would then come home sort of lie on the floor of her bedroom with a laptop trying to some work trying to eat and sort of drift in and out of consciousness with sort of how she put it to me so it's a very desperate situation for her. She went along to the clinic. Fairly skeptically as as most people would tend to think. She spared such a major turnaround in her experience with her. Sleep that's She has now decided to give in the business issues running and try with associates help to establish her. I sleep clinic what you're describing is basically cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia isn't it? I mean it's not rocket science does dot to sell.

"If you share a bed with someone then and their sound sleeper. That's intensely frustrating. You feel sort of admiration and jealousy and then the slightest movement they make conserve. Send you into this silent rage. I'm the really annoying sound sleeper next to you. I mean literally next year next to my husband I wonder if he likes to take his rage out and actually just wake me up in the middle of the night did you to do that. I don't think so maybe hoke yawn got up to Yank on the bed code other any famous techniques. That people tend to use to help yet. There's sort of stories of artists and entertainers and their strange rituals that they come up with van. Gough apparently soaked his mattress in Turpentine believing that to help. How does that help to? I don't know if it did. Sounds quite dangerous. Helped us out.

Wc fields he claimed he could only fall asleep with the the sound of rainfall in his ears and so His poor girlfriend would fire hose. His windows are believed to help him. Drift off trade off. Yeah beyond the cool. And how little sleep can people be getting one thing? I have heard since reporting this story on insomnia for the garden. Is that insomniacs. Underestimate the amount of sleep that they actually do. Have some people often report only sleeping for one or two hours in fact this leaping for two or three times that that amount when they undergo proper tests you get those watches? Which tell you how long you sleep. Yes and I had a newborn baby and I was like mony. I'm not getting any sleep. It's absolutely ridiculous. And so I went to sleep from like twelve till seven and I put the watch on when I click sleep and I wake up in the morning and I said I had slept for six hours and fifteen minutes. Maybe I'm might be so maybe that's less important than the feeling of. Oh I've only slept. Two hours ensued. Then have the anxiety the next night. So it's not you've written about having just a few hours a night and even sometimes no sleep at all. What impact was that having just struggling to concentrate often? When I when I was working the day after a night of relative sleeplessness. I think it was affecting my made and the amount that I could stay attentive for each day which is a problem when you're obviously have worked today and then just feelings with not exactly depressed but under some sort of weight or cloud of fatigue.

"I had no idea about the ties to the dark tower. But I'm reading rose madder now and it's like that is also kind of tying into the dark tower so there are more dark tower books than King has labeled essentially. Because you have the stand. You have this then you have rose matter almost immediately after this or immediately after this actually I think and then who knows how many more of his books will have these little tidbits but I feel like with insomnia. You're getting even more important information than maybe what we get from the stand about the dark tower. Yes and I have been told that 'cause I again haven't read the last book this ties in incredibly heavily with the last book like it is. It is something that you should read if you're reading the dark tower series. That's kind of how it's important side material will say because it gives you more background. But the connections to the tower kind of very slowly creep in and I wonder what someone would think if this is like the first Steven King Book they picked up like I feel like I. I would feel bad if you've been reading king for a long time like even if you've never read any of the dark tower books like you're kind of aware of the tower as thing and you've seen scene Rowland mentioned because he's mentioned couple times in this one never in any real capacity but he's talked about and you've heard mentioned mentioned. You've you've seen other things in that kind of hint that there's some other bigger world going on in the background of all of kings books but if this this when you like. Why do I care about this kid? Who's what's what so but if you've read any of his other stuff like I feel like this is a really rewarding read in not because of how how it manages to take the dark tower mythos and bring it into his other books and help it? really flesh out wrote how diverse works like you said like the tower has the levels and this gives a different metaphorical reading on what at those levels are and how the tower exists in all dimensions. I guess that's the word we'll go dimension. I feel like that's the only word that might suffice. Because when it comes to the fantasy elements of kings storytelling. Fantasy isn't necessarily my in January. I mean the most I've dug into fantasy really is like Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings and some of Neil gaiman stuff so it's not like I'm An avid fantasy reader by any means I got into king because of his horror elements and I felt enough of that in this book for it to kind of keep me wanting wanting to figure out what happens at the end but I feel like because I've only started the dark tower and I don't really know how this ties in yet. It made it a little less enjoyable for me if that makes any sense because now I'm kind of like okay. Well did this story serve any purpose other than serving as a connection to the dark tower or is it just one of those things working was like. Oh Hey I have all these dark tower stories in mind so let me just give you a random piece and not label it as dark tower book. Yes I can totally see that 'cause I think how well the ending works for you and like the the under arching structure of why the story is happening because you're right. This is very much a on a certain level. This is very much a explanation of of character in the dark tower But it's also like a story about Ralph because the story is indirectly about the person. It feels like it's kind of trying to work at two purposes. You know trying to like tell two stories at the same time almost and it. It's really going to depend on how it works for you because I liked it but I do read a lot of fantasy novels. I went through a period of reading a lot of epic. Fantasy like big tomes So it wasn't that they do that a lot and fantasy books. That is not unusual usual to have kind of multiple purposes going in a story so for me it was like. Oh Okay I see. We're we're trying to world build and tell a whole complete story and it's a real tossup of how it's GonNa work for the individual. Yeah because the grounded rounded parts of the story certainly take place in dairy so then you're like okay. Maybe this has more than just the connection with Mike aac being part of the story and then it Kinda doesn't go that direction and once the Greek mythology came into and I was like I don't know any of these names so there's probably probably a lot that I'm missing here so I'm glad that you have clarified some of that for me and then the character in question for the Towers Patrick Danville and he appears in this book and then in the dark tower which is book seven of the series. which you said is the last book? It's not the last published book but the one after as like a space between books four and five so you know he just really stood out of order for whatever reason but as far as I know that is at the end of the dark tower series. So the fact that I'm going to now have to wait like I don't know twenty more books. Take before I get to that. I don't I think it's twenty but it's pretty close so I have quite some time before I'm going to get to it. And that's probably how people who read these books as they were being released felt because there's a huge gap between this and that dark tower book right and I mean this was ninety. This was published in nineteen ninety four and was was the dark tower. Like you said like twenty bucks and I mean I think this this would have been after the fourth one but before the big rush of the last three that it happened because he didn't publish any dark tower books for quite some time and then he had learned three back to back to back right and I think that was the from what I've read. I think I think it's an on writing. He talks about that he realized like Oh shit I better finish the series right right right and so there's at least ten years if not more space between this and the last star tower. So it's it's very very interesting to me that this character has been was set up so long in advance because it would have been weird if he didn't didn't use it but that's a lot of setup for something that doesn't come to fruition for an incredibly long period of time and from the From what the the apropos season. Not Atra Pos close and leases. Tell him like. It's kind of clear after that king knew what he was going to use this character for. It wasn't just like oh well we'll just tell this interesting story. It's like he had a plan of like okay. This character. Patrick has this purpose that he needs to get taken care of. So we'll tell the story of his life being saved so he can fulfill that purpose. Yeah and you were right. It was ten years so book six and seven both came out in two thousand four and five came out in two thousand three so he really just like cranked out the material. And from what I can tell from the gunslinger booking knew what story he was going to tell because in the early books he kept saying and you know the story will continue so obviously he had this idea in his head for years upon years because the gap between the gunslinger being released in eighty two all the way to the series quote unquote ending in two thousand and four. That's a big gap. That's a Lotta years twenty two years and then you have the wind through the keyhole which came out even later in twenty twelve so to really get get the entire story. People had to wait thirty year. So that's just crazy for a series to drag drag on that long and it's because king was putting out so many other things he didn't want the dark tower to be his only thing he was working on right that that man is ahead is obviously stuffed with ideas. They're constantly begging like commanding to be get to be released. And you know with that kind of book or that kind of series rather you have to be so careful with what you're doing because it's usually has to come at the right time it's hard to just I force that to come out and have it come out right especially for someone who's constantly coming up with new ideas and like. Oh well I really want to write this book now. Oh and I want to write this book now. And he just didn't get back to it and I think my guess would be by the time he hit the fourth book he was like. Oh God this is. This is really complicated. I'll just put it off and keep putting it off keep putting it off until like okay. I better finish this because I might die type of situation and I think that. But he's still kinda like gives us little tidbits from this and rose matter and a few other books Later on in the series are in his collection of writings were. Yeah I definitely found Ralph and Lois as a team very compelling and like I mentioned earlier that sort of what kept me going with the story because I was so invested in those two by the time you had the little Oh ball Dr doctors playing a bigger role and trump does so you have this buildup that makes you like these characters and I think that's something Matt King does so well because if I didn't like Ralf in lowest other than this podcast I would not have had a ton of incentive to want to finish that book especially with that being as long as it is. Yeah I think they're they're so compelling there so interesting and like they're so different like you just don't get to see these kind of people who and as always he writes people who are different than him because obviously he was not seventy when he wrote this book Quite a ways away from it at that point and but yet they feel so lived in as most of his characters do and I just wanted to know and I think it was a it was really good idea a start. START US getting to know Ralph with the death of his wife because when you see someone in a book who's going through that kind of trauma like you get to. I know them on this very deep vulnerable level pretty quickly. Because you're seeing how they're reacting to all of this pain and it makes us feel for Ralph and want him to feel better and then he gets the insomnia any just starts to go downhill from there and it's like I just want this guy to have win. He's got to have a win right. You know. And then his relationship at his Ann Lewis is relationship with bill McGovern who's Ralph's downstairs neighbor And I really love how the three of them have the relationship between the three of them and how they all interplay with each other because McGovern is such which so different from the two of them so it allows them to bounce off of him and creates little conflicts. Wants to keep us going as we're building to the bigger conflict exactly and a lot of what I enjoyed about this has to do with how king structured the the story as a whole but also just the various character arcs within the story. Like you said if we didn't start off with seeing the trauma that Ralph had gone through and how he was suffering with the insomnia and everything like that we wouldn't have cared as much about his story and how so it led him to lois how it led him to ultimately in the end his sacrifice which will talk about in a little bit but just the way king rights characters. I he really knows where to drop them in in the story. It's like okay. We're going to give you this character. Who has been through this horrible thanks and is struggling so much to get over it because of this other thing that came about because of it right right and that it gives us such a recent isn't root for him and I think in particular? I think one of the things I've really loved about Ralph's character is how he interacts with a deep know. WHO's the puppet bit of the puppet? Yeah he's Atra posts human puppet and how immediately Ralph is like. I've gotten no time. I'm for you once Ed. Because we see ed in the very beginning of the book where he's acting completely out of character and he's got some road rage going yeah and cursing cursing and hitting this guy who was much bigger than him in. Ralph Kinda helps defuse the situation. But then that all gets Kinda lost once You know his wife dies which is like the next scene and then we see where Ed has beaten Helen and sheet the scene where she is walking after after he's horrifically beaten her and she's walking with her baby and how Ralph becomes so enraged despite his age seventy year old man again. Dan Goes to confront this like early thirties. Dude who literally just beat the shit out of his wife and knows he.

So the reason lily gave for needing to the beautiful picture of this bedroom.

I shut case but I wanted to put it to the finest legal minds of the podcasting world because of this the room is apparently now very special to them and she thinks thinks she should be allowed to move in. I don't think that fucking in a room suddenly denotes ownership. Also lillies girlfriend is a notorious quote player on the scene so so she certainly did not have her first time in my wardrobe.

This is the headline Tim. ABC told Batman Actor. Burt heard war to take pills to shrink penis. His penis presumably for pills are these. I don't know so. Basically basically he's saying that the Catholic League of decency thought that he had a very large bold for television. This sounds sounds like an old man telling tales out of school. Well the church didn't like big. My Weiner was not only that. He's he's he's He's speaking king of the dead because he he said like it was all you know that it was all him. Unlike Adam West voight Batman with Adam they put Turkish towels in his undershorts. What's your right? That guy's dead like it's I wanted to be brought in quite a jerk. Burt Ward Oh they were chums old chums. I don't know these jemmy enough that like you wait a year. After he dies to be like his duke would mud dick was bigger.

Get in line with the Catholic League of Decency So they they send him to a doctor who prescribed medication to quote shrink me up now this sounds I and then is is like it never returned and so I was really mad. It never went back to know. He's he says quote. I took them for three days and then decided that they can probably keep me from having children. I stopped doing that and I just use my Cape to cover it. He he didn't Robin as a I. Guess the sixty six Robin had a longer Cape but bike. I don't remember him like always having his Cape in front of his crotch. I'll just be like yeah taken. Those pills nets all working. Yeah Dick's tube. It's not on him to cover up with a cave. I think you know what just change changed pants a little bit. He probably did tell him he was still taking them. I bet he was just like no. I can't take these pills but also like the Reich keeps being a problem. Problem is like the sixties and like people would kill to be on television and I would kill to be on television bill. Go Oh to something more extreme. They'll tell me like he. I get this penis would alling surgery or something. A lot of people had that mistakes. It makes very sleek dynamic.

Why because I think a circus owed money to the mobster? And he was like e they're not paying up again You send them a message by killing the top trapeze. STAS never never borrow money from the Mafia is especially if you run a circus If you run a circus that's your holy hop Xi Yang. Go to the bank and be like I need more money for the circus.

Yeah do all latrine tracks in the world can not the world but the country connect now. That's started off as a serious question. I think halfway it through you tried to pivot all of them connect but I'm wondering what percent connect i. I would say ninety percent that can't be I mean we. You can kind of emails. Severity connected through stations at lease. Can you get to any train station from any train station. No I don't think so. Maybe maybe a roundabout way.

Yeah Blurry now's in color but some people so black and white. Yeah Yeah some other revelations from this article. Burt Ward never smoked drank or did drugs and claims to have never been in a bar in his entire life. That's fair in his entire life. I mean he ran afoul of the Catholic applic- League of decency.

To Do Robin because she said he could have been. He should have been a nuclear air. Physicists that he was in the top three percent in the United States in science and math.

"Were grateful for you our listeners you allow us to do what we love. Let us know how we're doing reach out on facebook and Instagram at par cast and twitter at podcast network. This is our first episode food on the still incurable syndrome that came to be known as fatal familial insomnia and the anonymous Italian family. That's been haunted by this mysterious disease for centuries this week we'll trace the family's troubled history from the pre. Napoleonic canals of Venice to twentieth century Padua successive generations tried and failed to understand their biological curse next week will explore the discovery that revolutionized the study. We have infection and learn how fatal familial insomnia fits inside a much larger and deadlier paradigm of diseases than anyone could have imagined engined. We cannot help but sleep. We can try to avoid it it. As many a procrastinating teenager or anxious warrior has attempted but we will always fail eventually it might take a few minutes or a few hours but that familiar heaviness behind the islands eventually sneaks up but what if sleep didn't return to you after a long day of work what if no matter how you twisted.

"Whatever is the. EU find resonates best for you and I think that's down onto each and every person to decide so you've created your own meditation approach. She is Jada. Can you tell us a bit about that wanted to do that. So what it's all about yes sure well the the majority of it is actually based on the orders technique in the world which comes from the Himalayas. It's about ten thousand years old and that's been passed from US issued student for all of that time and I'm simply twenty-first-century conduit to that butts there were a couple of gaps steitz discerned and so I'm woven in a couple of extra things for beginners to actually make it much more complete and much more relevance the twenty first century and then if shoots WanNa go on a journey and really if they wanna get that sorts of Jedi skywalker thing that I had then I can take people glowna journey and again there are things I've learned from other parts of the world and from other traditions knowledge basis which I we've in just to make it as complete as possible so I'm not doing anything particularly spectacular. I'm simply synthesizing the various various knowledge bases. I've encountered in a way that feels most comprehensive complete. Can you tell us a bit about your book and your APP as well please. I actually go approach by loads of publishers to write a book about all of this not sure I have time this teaching today but I took the challenge on and what I wanted to do was tell the story of meditation but not in a really dry why the teachers just saying this and that and the other says why don't we actually get case studies over the people who are lots of people that we saw and to give their sort of the story and to help the audience realize that they're just like me because that has been for so long this idea that meditation is <hes> monks or for hippies and that puts a lot of people off financial factors for every one of us because we're all human we're all subject to these same emotional oh experiences and we will have the same brain chemistry so meditation works for everyone but how do you communicate that well by getting people who are representative of the general population to tell their side and people who have all of these very common situations things whether it's anxiety depression insomnia chronic fatigue physical issues like ibs such like because not all these things again to epidemic proportions so they tell their stories in the book and it's rarely very hot woman and then what I do is I us what they say is launch pad to try and share all these wisdoms about meditation but also how you get the most out of meditation patience because Meditations really there to make your life better. It's not necessarily meant to be just this little escape. Hatch where you just go for twenty or thirty not minutes to shoot from the audit does serve that function but the best meditation is actually what they do is they power you up to be able to go back into the world and we more engaged in more vibrant and more yourself and so. I felt that there are these key messages we needed to get across to help people understand meditation more and to demystify so that people felt comfortable with and inspired to go and the APP up is my way to try to democratize meditation because I'm actually just finishing up teaching six people to to become teachers and they'll go to various cities around the world and that's great. We'll be in a few major cities in year-on-year they'll be more but that still depriving ninety eight percent of the world's population of having access to it but the challenge is trying to get quality teaching across Viren App any digital platform because you you don't have that one to one interaction and so it's actually quite tricky to deliver a high level meditation experience purely through digital medium so I held off quite a few years and then eventually I started to work out how it could be done and I also felt that a lot of APPS are out there. They're trying to make it dependent on the phone. You gotTA keep tuning in every day into your phone. Find which I felt was a bit paradoxical so whilst we have will those guided meditations on the APP really what is there to do is to help. You become self sufficiency so you don't need the APP anymore. If you want to use it as a support aid you want the game indication an extra content to give you wisdom outside of the meditation and it says all those functions but I want you to be able to actually go and do it by yourself. Wherever you are without being dependent on anyone or anything this this year and then you're empowered so I guess the book is there to help inform and inspire and the APP is actually there to help empower you to be able to be a your best self without needing anyone's help within a few weeks. The book is called effortless mind though right now and the APP is out yet or is it out soon. It's called. BG's Yes Bijan Meditation. It is our came out about ten days ago. Actually great congrats so both out now. Thanks very much for coming in just by that. Is there everything you like to add. All odd really say is if anyone listening is wondering whether meditations really for them or if they've tried it and they found it to be quite difficult Michael which is a lot of people's experience. Don't worry honestly meditation can be really easy and it can be more effective than you could possibly imagine and so the river would finding practice works view is so unbelievably high and it will change your life so if in doubt give a guy. I keep the first one doesn't work. Keep going keep trying until you find the right one because once you do your life will be forever improved and so I I get on with the show is mentally today <music>.

"If it's on your brain right when you go to bed. It's going to be on your break up at two in the morning so get it out. Write it down whether it's journaling whether it's a to do list if you have a lot of worries stories that are just the same worries over and over again spend a little time in our before writing them all down on a piece of paper for ten minutes. Where do you stand on supplementation when not talking about prescription drugs. I'm not opposed to it at all but we do try to do. We try to treat sleep without anything at the beginning because we because that's for how we're supposed to sleep it really varies at least at home. Most people tend to use melatonin. It's not regulated by by any government agency and it's over the counter and so people miss this and it's not and you can get bottles that have one dose inside lied and another bottle have different dosage even though they are all labeled the same so melatonin. It's helpful for some people. It's really great for jetlag and certain certain disorders but not so much for insomnia but i have patients who swear by it but magnesium some people use for calming effect when it comes to hormonal issues platt coho sh <hes> there's def- def- definitely definitely things that you can try but i always encourage people to talk to her physician. I because just because it's over the counter doesn't doesn't mean it doesn't have interactions with medical disorders that you have other medications that you might take and just because it's over the counter doesn't mean it's not without side effects either so people take melatonin at home like it's candy but it can make you have more nightmares more vivid dreams.

"Coping skills get better you can deal with life better data and so you don't always have to focus as much on xining depression but a lot of times there is other stuff going on too and we need to address that as well and that's why like doing it more in practice on the side yeah but i mean it's also interesting and as you said listen <hes> saying to shelby dr harris earlier shelby showing that <hes> i've suffered with insomnia and really disrupted into him to sleep for a long time and that's when i know will i need to look at other. Things is in my life because that's why sleeps being affected. Yeah i mean sometimes that is important. I mean it's always important to do that to look at all the areas of your life and look at your stress anxiety zayda levels depression whatever it might be medical there can be a million reasons why people have insomnia and sometimes i have come to me and they cannot pinpoint any reason why it might develop. Sometimes you just have insomnia. You just don't know why and yes you might have to address those other factors but sometimes you don't have to you have to address the things behaviorally that you're doing might be making the insomnia keep going on and on and it's not that you're doing anything wrong like if somebody's listening to this in the having the experiencing insomnia yeah they shouldn't be doing anything wrong. It's okay it happens yeah. It happens. It's super common. I've had insomnia myself. It's something that we just just as my patients all the time. I don't sleep perfect every night. We just have to know when we're starting to have trouble and one of the things we can do to get ourselves selves back on track to fix it now. One of the reasons that we are talking is because you've got the brilliant book that i i was saying to shell we before we started recording every chapter. After i read i would think oh. I really want to know the answer. These questions that i'd start the next chapter low behold we clearly have some of the thought process but the book is called the women's guide to overcoming overcoming insomnia and insomnia actually is unfortunately more likely to affect women. Yeah it is a rate of three read it two times more than men. It's really it's a problem and we've always just kind of lumped it together just insomnia that everyone has it but really we need to focus on it for women and more to and what does what does that potentially is it because of hormones is it because of load-bearing everything you hit it. There's a few reasons hormones or one really babies and that is throughout the lifespan so we actually see insomnia rates so trouble sleeping we see equal in children and young adolescents once we reach adolescence in our hormones for women we start to have estrogen levels. <unk> gesture unravels start to change engine women's start to earn young adolescents. I should say start to hit menstruation. That's when we actually see women's start to have more rates have insomnia over men and it's during that time immense race you're just before some women have trouble sleeping for about three to five days just before they menstruate and that can happen month after vermont so that's a very common time for insomnia for women and then pregnancy you're uncomfortable. Stress is a big one right.
