"You define cold laser therapy or so. We look at at at cold laser therapy. That means it's non-thermal because there are some lays out there that are thermal. There's some high powered ones that work by heating up the tissue low level lasers. They've been used since the nineteen sixties. And they're really pioneered in the former soviet union where there was so much research by nineteen seventy four that the russians were using them in their state-sponsored Medical care so they're using them for every branch of medicine basically even if it was. Obgyn if it was a oncology neurology orthopedics because they were able to see that it can help people to heal much faster. By the way the laser actually stimulate. Some changes will be called photo biochemical changes so the easiest way to think about lasers. Let's start with plants. Let's look at photosynthesis so you've gotta plants leaf and when sunlight hits the plant's leaf. They will absorb the photons of energy. Sounds like star trek but it absorbs photons and then the plant will convert that into food through photosynthesis so that's one simple way that living organisms can use light in humans when sunlight hits us. We can't make food but we can absorb that energy and make vitamin d that goes throughout the body in order to cause you to me stronger bones or affect the immune system and inflammation or the sunlight can cause you make me Melon for a suntan melatonin for your sleep wake cycles and for some people. They can't even get seasonal affective disorder. Where if they don't get enough light they can get depressed so we know that our bodies are already light reactive now. What happens when we get laser on the skin. You're not gonna make food or vitamin d or a melanin. But you're gonna make some other molecules that have a really powerful impact. One of the primary ones is you're going to make atp which is made in the mitochondria and so you have listeners. Who have autoimmune conditions fibromyalgia.

"melatonin" Discussed on 1-800-Dreamzz with Amelia & Cecilia
"It is to synchronize our biological clocks. He those taking Could be helpful. If you're traveling two time zones that are five hours or more away from your normal time zone but it's otherwise not really helpful with sleep disorders so kind of not really helpful well back to matthew wacker who agrees that melatonin is there to help you. Get your clock on track and not to generate sleeper. Hope you stay asleep. He says the placebo effect is very powerful. If you feel like you're getting quality sleep with the militants element. Fine talk to your doctor. So we're you know we're running trying time so which is one tip to help our listeners. Sleep if they choose to not go the route of melatonin. This is kind of a boring but it definitely bears repeating We know that too much technology before. Bad is not ideal honestly. That's probably for a number of reasons. But in this case it's because melatonin production can actually be inhibited but blue wavelength light. Which is why suggested to not look at electric's before bed. That being said they also make like those blue lens blockers just straight up blue-blocker glasses or you can get like a nice lake filter on your glasses. I've seen many phones now. Kind of like. Try to change the color of your phone sons. Lots of that blue light that being said. I'm probably still keep taking me. I definitely notice the difference. Like with an ice off and my daughter where it's like okay instead of being like because that's like my big awake time. I'm such a night owl. Hi s. it's nine pm where you know. You're still have you seen her name. Telling us taken melatonin. S super helpful. Because it's like now it's dark out you need to go back. Yeah which isn't like super great when it gets dark out in the mid west at five pm pt seriously. Yup yup same woman in that sense because mine is five milligrams. I will cut those into like little tiny pieces. Yeah yeah that goes. That's what i honestly like the children's ones. You can buy like one milligram. And i just got a pill cut her. Cut them in half for her. So she's getting milligram. If i need her to sleep you know. I do everything. That's blocking the sun with the curtains. And all of that too. But like i'll give quarter of a wine it actually. This episode actually really reinforced to me. Because i was like giving one for nap time because she won't nap like she refuses to now and it would help her now. But then i wouldn't necessarily have to give her one in the evening. Oh okay because those in their club. I see interesting. Okay and by till culture. Do you mean a file down old credit card gotta cut the stock youtube. I like the least all right.

It's Okay To Sleep Late (Do It For Your Immune System)
"So here's a little sleep wanna one. There are two important parts of this that have to sync up for good sleep. The first one size is something called. Sleep homeo- static drive sooner sleep whom you static drive. What happens is that as you're awake awake more and more waste products to eleven your brain and one of these products is identity and the more dinner you have in your brain the mostly you are in fact. Caffeine works by blocking the action of identifying the second part of this equation is your circadian rhythm which is kind of like a little clock. Ticking in your brain debt clock basically defines when you're asleep when you're awake and this clock is is quoted by jeans so when it's time to sleep disc- lock alerts your opinion plan in the brain to start secreting melatonin. And when that happens your body and your brain your light. It's time to go to bed now. You get the best sleep when board these processes match so in person who the late leaper their melatonin releases later than me. Are you for example people who go to bed at ten pm. Their melton is being released later in the night so even though they go to bed at twelve they cannot fall asleep. The falsely by two three m and then have to wake up at seven the basically functioning on three four hours of sleep. It's not optimal solution. So my brain's like garbage can. It should get full when my brain clock strikes bedtime youth. Those things are are are happening but not everyone works that way. Yes yes basically. Most people What's happening. Is that when you wake up in the morning So this clock is like an old grandfather clock you know. It needs to be distinct every day. So what happened. Is that every morning. When you make up light hits your retina and actually communicate suprachiasmatic nucleus and tells it daytime and it it kind of syncs it today but in certain people. This clark makes you feel sleepy later. And so if these people try to sleep during normal hours they would have a harder time falling asleep and they will have pools and what decides whether your body prefers one over the other. Because you mentioned that it. The clock is decided by your genes. So what scientists thing. Is that why. This clock was developed for us because we needed to sink ourselves to lighten days because humans are diurnal that needs to sleep during the night and wake up during the day. But i lose what we also found. Is that society needed people with differing clocks for example deletes arcadian. Leap is people who sleep late and make up late or found to be beneficial because they would protect the tripe bright there would be up. They would protect them from predators and things at night. But now what's happening is that we are trying to fit everyone into the same box. And that's like height like intelligence cure. Color your circadian clock very across the population so we are not hitting the individual uniqueness of every person and that's where the problem is coming. Our society is so different now is what you're saying this. Do you feel that. The way we work puts late sleepers at a disadvantage. Yes i do. Yes and i have started realizing this more since i've been doing Clinics is because people have come in and have broken down in front of me and that really disturbed me and these are scientists. These people who are very productive the issues that instead of focusing on parameters like productivity efficiency. We're still looking at parameters like. Are you here in the office early morning and i think that puts people especially people with lately at a big disadvantage. Yeah i mean the shaming. Shame is so much tied up in this because it's not just about what is biologically perhaps perferred but going to bed early and getting up early seen as morally better or more virtuous i mean what rolled is shaming playing in. All of this think it plays a big role and especially as you see in movies and all those sitcoms like the ceo culture like you see the success of ceo. Who's only three hours a night and making millions of dollars so successful. And i think this is what has been so prevalent in society. This kind of thinking you know that to be successful you have to wake up early and you need to sleep less. Which is this is completely opposite of what neuroscientists sending us so shaming playing a big deal number one. It's it's making these people feel guilty anxious which is worsening the sleep. The other is that it's it's making it harder for people to recognize it as a thing the sleep disorder that needs treatment instead of something that is in the hands of an individual person shaming is a big reason why people are afraid to come forward and talk about sleep so last question last question. I'm asking us not just with corona virus in mind but what role does sleep play in staying healthy and also recovering from illness so as with other things. We are discovering how sleep affects diseases and body physiology. And what you've seen is that in animal. Studies and human studies is that manipulation of sleep can affect how your white blood cells microstate. How your body produces cytokines which useful for fighting infection antibody levels how your immune related genes are activated. There have also been studied in flies and rodents that suggest that cleavage increases the survival from an infection and there are service studies in humans. That indicated sleep laws increases the susceptibility infections. So i mean at a time like this. I guess it's even more important. That people are getting really good night's rest. Yes yes. I think it's important. I think it's i think what people need to realize. That leap is not a passive process is a dynamic process that is associated with metabolic Associated re of hormones. It prepares you for the next day. It helps it memory that health drawer. So i think people need to focus on getting good sleep especially in times like this because it may it it helps the body be the best it can be to fight infection and to be the best
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
How To Deal With Depression
"Hello, Hi and welcome to another bullet points episode where I posed the question. Feeling. Sad and I don't mean sad as in all you feeling a bit blue I'm talking about sad that seasonal affective disorder. In the throes of seasonal change and given how odd the year has been overall for all of us wherever it is that you're listening to this episode wherever you are in the world I thought it would be worth liking this up because it's just a useful thing to watch out for and perhaps more importantly just check in with yourself to see how you doing and if. You're feeling what I like to call funky right now because a few tweaks could actually help you navigate away from that down blue low feeling. Now, before we go any further, it's obviously very important that I say very clearly that I am not a medical professional and any concerns about your health, your mood, your mental health are best discussed with your doctor GP MD or family physician. and. I'm sure we can relate to feeling different and by different I. Mean we may notice a drop in energy feeling a bit lackluster, less enthusiastic all of those things during the cold months and especially. So when eve morning might start looking at summary and then quickly and you get to mid morning and it's definitely winter CEO kind of in this hopeful period of its today going to be Nice Oh actually, no today is going to be really wet and cold. So during the colder months when the days are shorter and the evenings all longer, it can just be a little bit harder to get motivated to feel. To feel that get up and go that just seems to come naturally in the summer, and if you feel a drastic change in your in your mood, your disposition or enthusiasm in the autumn, then you may very well be suffering from a form of seasonal affective disorder and obviously there will be a spectrum it'll be mild, and then they'll be more severe instances. So in the UK, it's on the website and it just being the National Health Service as the seasonal affective disorder is a type of depression that comes and goes in a seasonal patterns. So it makes sense right? So in the wind down in the summer summer you up. And the varying degrees of that down and that will be unique team. It goes on side is sometimes known as winter depression because the symptoms are more parent and tend to be more severe during the winter. The symptoms often begin in the autumn is the day start to get shorter and they're typically most severe during. December. January and February and that's not only when it's dark but also usually when the temperatures really do drop Now I personally can relate to this and I feel as though. When it comes to winter I, have to really fight the urge to hibernate especially in this this time October. November. December I really have to fight that urge and but then I mean I have this instinct to get on the blankets or stay in bed longer will. It sounds really dove preserved my energy like a hibernating bear I have honestly at times had to catch myself and say you're not a bear. You don't need to preserve unity and you don't need to eat all of that. So just don't do it and every time I get that urge to have a D.. Day. I have to remind myself how great it is to go for a long walk on the Crisp win today or even I mean even this weekend I went up for a really long walk and it was budgeting with rain but I had to test out my new rain jacket. So I made into I, made it into something exciting and I tried on the walk to notice how fresh everything smells like when it rains and you go for a long walk in the woods, it just smells incredible and I have to remind myself at that. There is nothing wrong with the DVD I hasten to add we. All benefit them from them. They can be absolutely wonderful but it's just making sure for me personally and I don't know about you that I'm not having too many in a row. So seasonal affective disorder is brought on because the brain is exposed to less natural light and vitamin D during the autumn and winter, and this intern disrupts our production of Melatonin Serotonin and Melatonin is the sleepy hormone and Serotonin is the mood hormone. So if those two are taking a bit of a battering or if they're affected anyway and they get out of balance, you're definitely going to feel in how you sleep and your mood. And you're suffering with sad. Then you may feel quite extreme changes in moods across the season's usually a in autumn winter that'll be characterized by depression. With periods of not feeling depressed throughout. Spring. Summer. The lack of light and exposure to vitamin D and the shorter days mean that the actually pretty prevalent in the northern hemisphere and the instances tend to increase further north you go which makes sense when you think about it let's daylight the signs look out for are things like hypothermia. So that's that feeling of extreme lethargy sleepiness just that feeling that you just want to. Curl up which sometimes valid because you're busy and you really do need to rest but other times if it if it's tipping over the edge and it's just getting all the time, remember what I said about me wanting to be a bad. The other thing to look out for is the urge to an you are overeating or you're craving carbohydrates about some part of it. Also part of it is a notable lack of motivation and energy. You might be irritable and your mood might be noticeably depressed or down. You might also just not enjoy the things that you normally like. He might be withdrawing socially and he might be struggling to do the things that you normally do or even think clearly,

An has become a top resource for essential oils education on the Internet today Jodi it is just fantastic to have you here with us today. How're you doing great and it's nice to connect with other essential ill people always yes. So Jodie, how did you come into the world of essential oils and specifically breen related issues? While I had kind of started my life as a journalist and then I started working business had my first kid who was easy had a second one twenty two months later less easy and it turned out it was nutrition that was really throwing off his little system, and so I spent so much time banging my head against the wall until I figured that out the one that I realized how important food was in. Terms of your mood, your energy, your ability to focus I went back and got a degree in nutrition was helping other people a Lotta MOMS but you know Kinzer squirmy and it's hard to keep them still the test them. So I learned this technique called missile testing that allowed they could deliver. It was still really an easy way to identify remedies which was helpful when my bottom fellow my man has been was bipolar. Antonio suicide and had to be moved to a residential treatment facility and the kids were five and seven, and once we got him all Seta. I collapsed my adrenals have been running a ten year marathon and it just it had taken a toll on me but that wasn't very sustainable because I was suddenly a single parent I had a job and. It no matter how exhausted I wear they still needed to be fed the laundry John need to be cleaned exactly. So it was then that a friend actually gifted me a box of essential hills because I had been trying everything I could think of all the things that have worked in the past really failed me and I was so desperate and and really so fatigued both physically, and mentally that I just muscled. Tested you know as anything in here, going to be helpful for measuring all's and my experience muscle testing is if something works, it's almost like it's a very loud signal and it was such a strong signalise league felt optimistic and I was like Oh you know identified five oils and then it occurred to me like what do I do this? I normally get one and I realized that I can combine them so i. Each oil and kind of combine them in the right amounts, put them on my adrenals on my lower back and for the first time in a month felt like myself again felt like Oh my God I go running. Do you have to remember what those five oils were by chance? Yeah. It's actually the combination that I now have in my adrenal gland it's time Rosemary Rosemary Stimulatory Manuka cinnamon and. Gabum in as you know oils ever powerful in their own but when you combine them, there's synergy that occurs. amplifies Fairfax, and so they're stimulatory oils but they seem to be adapted genetic Yeah. So you re rub them on the on your lower back over the dreams. Yeah. Man I just recently had this. Huge moment with oils. Again, you know you have them all the time you know you just keep having them and you're like Oh my God big things really do work and it was when I was cutting out coffee. Drinking how day in the morning which verdon normal person is probably fine. But for me, it was like really recognize system and so I just cut it out cold Turkey and I was. I. Was just I had Migraines I was just miserable and so yeah I. Busted out some oils and rub them on major knowles and then put like hot pack over top. And it really Mike would bring me back to life. It was it was an amazing feeling. So That's interesting that that was sort of your in for oils was it anyways it was so quick and I thought this is amazing. You know and also I had been working as a practitioner and you know someone's deficient in vitamin B wants an easy fix ray if you're trying to trigger your pineal gland or at least Melatonin were balanced hypo film, it's get into areas of the brain. That's tricky. There all these kind of low hanging fruit, easy things and then harder things and so once I had that experience of wow, is work then. I kind of was reverse engineering witched do right Oh. My Gut is really compromised I league. So makes sense that no matter what I'm taking three my digestion pathway isn't really getting a simulated but something I can topically apply that could sue the skin into the bloodstream immediately. So okay. That makes sense why the other remedies were working in while this worked really quickly right? Just sort of bypasses the gut there and that it makes total sense to me when I hear that that explanation of getting the oils into your bloodstream, which is gonNa then go to all these parts of your body really get in deepen in my mind it seems very. Pretty straightforward just like you would use any form of planned medicine or any sort of you're getting good stuff into your body and letting it do its job. But for a lot of people they just they can't look past essential oils is just things that smell good. You know.

Think Twice Before You Eat That Halloween Candy
"The urban legend of Razor Blades in your Halloween candy or poison hidden behind the sweet taste of a snickers bar has been around for decades to this day. Parents are still worn to inspect all candy give into their children to make sure that it's safe for consumption quoted from a mental floss article written by Ethan treks quote it's easy to see how urban legends have taken hold because they're so terrifying after all parents Ben Three hundred, sixty, four days of every year telling their kids not to take candy from strangers precisely because of might be poisoned. Then, give the thumbs up to taking snacks from every house in the neighborhood on Halloween, and that's so true and it also calls to mind the whole idea of like when we re under it, we were told not to talk to strangers online and not to get in cars with strangers, and now we literally use the Internet to summon strangers to get in their cars yet. So. Weird. It's crazy. So in one, thousand, nine, hundred, five Joel Best, who's a professor of sociology and Criminal Justice at the University of Delaware publishing article that reviewed reports and press coverage of candy tampering in the United States between nineteen, Fifty, eight to nineteen eighty-four during the search he found a report as early as nineteen fifty nine where children were falling ill after a California dentist named. William. Shine had distributed four hundred fifty candies laced with laxatives. Two Children Jesus thirty of these children were actually affected by candy tampering and he was later charged with outrage of public decency and quote unlawful dispensing of drugs for a dentist. A dentist, a nine, hundred, sixty, four in New York a forty, seven year. Old Woman named. Helen feel was. Annoyed by the Halloween custom of handing out candy to children especially to children who she felt deserve to be given free candy for she handed out bags of treats including ant poison and dog biscuits while when she was confronted about her actions she said, she was doing it as a joke and only gave the items kid she felt were too old to be trick or treating. Is later reported that she was admitted to the State Hospital for mental observation. Good. God right. You don't know what their issues and why they're treating, and even if they don't have an issue like who fucking cares don't be so stingy. Yeah. Like would you want them taking part in egging in toilet paper toilet paper people's houses or would you like them going door to door and get some candy? Just let them go home with bags of candy and then do whatever they're going to do at the house. They're not gonNA come back at midnight to your house. They've if you give him dog biscuits. Yeah. It's like you just set yourself up for some mischief right in one thousand, nine, hundred, Sixty, eight, Toronto police had discovered razor blades and noodles and Halloween apples. The footage found in the CBC Archives Showed Police Displaying Candy that was supposedly poisoned in nineteen seventy, five year old boy named Kevin Dotson from Detroit died after supposedly eating heroin laced candy diseases. After news media outlets had a field day with telling all parents to dispose of their children's hard earned cash flowing treats. It was later discovered that the parents of the child were trying to hide the true events led to his death apparently the uncle of the boy. had a heroin stash in his home and the little boy had gotten into it and ingested a capsule filled with heroin. The parents sprinkled heroin on the boys Halloween candy after he had died as a cover up to protect the boy's uncle God. But that also kind of reminds me of the the thing that goes around of Lake don't watch out people are putting edibles in your candidate and like no nobody's giving you hundreds of dollars of drug senior kids. In two thousand and Minnesota a forty nine year old man named James Joseph Smith was charged with felony for tampering with candy after a fourteen year old boy was pricked with a needle after biting into a candy bar. Lou. He apparently had put needles into snickers bars and handed them out on Halloween. Night. He was charged with one count of adultery in substance with the intent to cause harm illness or death new four other boys were found to have the needle lace snicker Bar, but the only one boy was harmed. In Two thousand sixteen in Nova Scotia a twelve year old boy was injured when he reached into his candy bag and was cut by a razor blade poking out of a kick cap arc. In two thousand, seventeen multiple reports come out of Ontario Canada where eleven year old girl underwent surgery at U. ship it into recess peanut Butter Cup containing a metal object although it was unclear if this was a result of candy tampering or a manufacturing incident. And other eleven year old boy was also reported to have received a Tutsi roll containing melatonin pill before. Tone of all things so. Yes. So harmless but just go to sleep in two thousand, nineteen in Connecticut thirty seven year old Jason Racks was arrested and held on a two hundred fifty thousand dollar bond after the parents of at least two trick or treaters found razors in their children's candy bags. He was charged with risk of injury to a minor reckless endangerment and interfering with police officer apparently did not go quietly when arrested and he also stated that the razor blades were accidentally spilled into the Cannibal for boxer razors who just happened to have next to it. Yes. Yep Yeah I totally believer like you do a later unrelated incident involved someone handing out THC laced gummy candies in their Halloween trick or treaters. Each of the bags contained colorful gummy cubes each packed with ten milligrams of THC. It was stated that it was unknown if this was intentional or from might have been an unintentional oversight by the person handing out the treats but the packaging was obvious enough that it shouldn't be consumed by children Marcos is probably high end didn't notice it air probably high and just in the bag knows because there's pictures of it and that looks like little gummy little gummy bear bags. Yeah. So again, the joke comes up though that nobody's going to willingly hand over yet. They're edibles. Yeah. At the conclusion of Joel Best Research. So get it only went from nine, hundred, fifty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, and a lot of these cases. I, told you about were in the two thousands So, this was his conclusion with his research at the conclusion of Joel Best Research into candy tampering incidents. He concluded that the vast majority of reported about seventy five percent who were either hoaxes conducted by children or their parents or didn't result in serious injury interesting. He also stated that contemporary legends are ways that society expresses anxiety and urban legends like Halloween Sadism could've stemmed from societal grievances like nineteen, eighty, two with the cyanide laced tylenol incident in. CHICAGO? The September eleventh terrorist attacks and subsequent Anthrax scare and of course now with Yeah. which actually plays into what you were saying. Devil's night about the depression and the war and how people just kind of like did what they did on Devil's night as a reprieve or as Cathartic. Occurrence. Yeah. So yeah, and that a lot of these urban legends Kinda just stemmed from people just having so much anxiety about the world in the world's problems. Yeah. Yeah. He has stated quote is it possible that someone maliciously passes out treats with the intent of harming children at random of course but this raises the question why they're usually aren't multiple reports from the same area effectively saying that the urban legend is just that nothing more than a hoax or scary story to tell her on time we're anxieties already

"melatonin" Discussed on Dr Ron Unfiltered Uncensored
"So it's good for our bones. Keep us up straight. So we have the get up and go until it's time to go. so What do we do you guys also? Don't take your phone or iPad pad to bed with you. Remember these devices give off bad types of light when it comes to melatonin production. Another source of melatonin zapping light comes from those energy efficient CFL bulbs. Your best bet is the old incandescent kind but just remember they get hot they're getting harder to find. If you have to go LEDs get ones with a low number on the case scale. Which means the light is warmer and less blue. And what are melatonin boosting Foods you say well pineapple bananas oranges and tart cherry juice. melatonin tone in boosting Foods pineapple bananas oranges and tart cherry juice Keep your bedroom as dark as you can when you go to bed. And when when you're under the covers and in bed, make sure it's really lights out even one lamp switched on during the nights as a message to your brain to stop that melatonin production. If you need a light on at night, they recommend a red light or a blue light. Take that melatonin about 20 minutes to an hour before bedtime. So again, you have to be CEO of your own body. Take charge. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Don't take everything. I say for granted either. But this is really important material a melatonin. It is in creating credible hormone. And I think you have to remember if you're over fifty or not producing much. So this is something you have to drink a lot of tart cherry juice or you know, take a supplement. I recommend excuse me taking the supplement. and don't forget vitamin D and say All right, just so I can make sure I covered everything. I wanted to cover with you today..
Melatonin, CBD, Creatine, and Immunity Boosts
"Chris Welcome welcome to another episode of. Ask The guys here. We have a title. So here we are. This is what I would we do. Five or six other episodes like this before it's been a while and well we've done. One and people have been asking so you are again Chris is. Chris Irvine. On that nailed it the Kitale tallest. Trying to new break out a little bit more and changes named you just name. We talk about so. Talk about what you're stuck. We'll talk about it off off off Mike. Be Out. We're GONNA. Talk about stuff. Hopefully, not everything Joseph's. Chris's our resident expert here. BIA curiosity so cuny time. This one is about supplements if we got a lot of questions about. Settlements how to use them when to use themselves. Fire him off to see. We have all right so first question we have is from Heather N. and the question is should I supplement with Melatonin? If I'm having trouble sleeping so I would say no, and we can this. This is in my newsletter couple of weeks ago I. Don't know if you read that, but tour down a little bit. MELATONIN has its place. It is a precursor to a letter to the. Is Naturally secreted by your brain anything that's naturally secreted by your brain. I'm not a huge fan of. Taking Sasha Sisley. This is actually if you look at it, it's the only hormone that you can get without a prescription. Technically. Hormone your body. It's the only way you can get without a prescription interesting, yeah! I mean I. think my thoughts with Milton I think the answers that depends because I think it depends on. If you are living a lifestyle that allows you to produce it naturally so I think if you're a night shift worker, or you're somebody who is able to. You know if you're not, it's not the first step you should take if you're having trouble sleeping so I if you if you're not checking the boxes. With you're trying to improve your sleep quality then you shouldn't be turning Melatonin, but if you are work your work, circumstances are living circumstances. Have you in a position where you aren't going to be able to produce a lot of Melatonin? Naturally then I think you prior getting good sleep is going to be important, and if Melatonin can help that I think it can be a good song. Yeah, so the question is what is melting do and how is it? Producing one is produced by the body naturally. Melatonin essentially just tell you about it activates cascade of different Newark. Chemicals screwed that basically tell you buy. It's time to go to sleep. At screened by Pinal Gland I believe. And it is. Associate with a lot of things, light is major one. So what happens is most people don't. Fall Asleep with the sunset right and so the sun normally go down in all human history, and for every other analysts happens. By starts up regulating melatonin. melatonin sort of master switched. Those tells the rest of your body's going down and shutting down for arrest. When this doesn't happen. Can Be hard to go to sleep, and only that cannot stop you from getting into different stages of sleep as fast as you normally would, so you may be unconscious, but that doesn't mean you're getting the restorative sleep that you normally would so. Why is this problem? While people are after the sun goes down, they're exposed to blue light on their screens fluorescent lights in their house. The suppresses Melatonin production. So if that's the case, you have no other option. Maybe it's a good idea to take it I would take it regularly, but it at the same exact time. You shouldn't be producing it all over the place, so it shouldn't be off the map like. If you're taking Melatonin and you taking it one eight PM. One at ten PM. One and seven PM. In place you basically telling your brand that you're traveling in time zones back and forth and back and forth so I would focus far more on this is a last resort, and for special circumstances moving which we can get into, but the number one thing that I do when I go somewhere as If I have blue light, blocking glasses I blue blocks. and. There's a bunch out there. That's the ones I prefer. If I can't control the lights on my house. I've liked that dim when the sun sets and turn red and orange, after the sun has set, so those are wavelengths that do not. Suppress, Melatonin and this why the lends them blue light blocking glasses, the sandy fill blue light. You think about it like if you're outside at a campfire. The Ladies Very. Orangish, Yellowish Reddish Hue, there's very little to no blue light in there, so that's all from the sun so. Removing that from your day to day, life in is consistently as possible so that way you're not getting these weird signals of your body that you're switching time zones against another completely natural thing for humans to go through. That would be a huge thing, but I think there's a Lotta other things why people aren't getting good sleep, and so assuming that it's because of your lack of Melatonin production is i. think a little silly I think that you could look at. Obviously light is a huge one temperature of your room and then. The ability for light the in your house from. Blue. Blue. I'm trying to your. Shades. blockers no time. Look. light-blocking shades trying to say here. Oh blackout curtains blackout. So those are a good thing, and then we have lights actually if you're in a city where there's a lot of additional light, yeah, we have then lights that turn on the sunlight. One Sunrise should be happening. So this is another. Thing that happens. Has People Get Blackout Curtains? And then they don't wake up to the sun, which is again? In the wrong direction, so we actually have lights that turn on. As the sun rises locally, so you can just do all this stuff is super easy, Philips. Hue Lights, but we have. Great and Eating Super Close about times and I WANNA. Thank people you way too close to bed. I put at least three hours before you try to shut down and mental stimulation is also too much, so people are worried about this at that looking at the news. They're watching TV. They're just in. There had even hanging out with friends like I've done last couple of nights. You know people talk. Nine nine thirty s usually go to bed then I get home and it looks super stimulated. I can't sold out for a couple of hours. There's a lot of reasons why people wouldn't be able to sleep or feeling Russ restless. Having lack of militant brushes by news worry about? Your thoughts here. Will agree with that I. Think the the two things I would add to. That I agree that like I think it's a last ditch. Thing that you need to try. There's a of other things you can get in check with your environment and with your health habits before you need to turn to that supplementation. Do things I would add for helping is. Sleeping with your phone either out of room, or at least face down or not sleeping with the television on. There's some really interesting research out there that even when your eyelids are closed in your sleeping, flashing lights can cause face shifts in your circadian rhythms that can suppress Melatonin production or ramp up cortisol in the middle of the night. Things like that so. That's can be as simple as having your phone facing up and it lighting up while you're sleeping. That can completely threw off your sleep. So I thought that was really interesting thing when I was reading that studies. That would be a big thing. To consider and then. There's there is some interesting research on Melatonin for neuro degenerative diseases where you know, it seems like as we age, our natural production of Melatonin starts to decrease in. They've done studies where supplementing with it in elderly populations really increases cognitive function. That actually just came out this year I. Think showing that so like you said I think it's either. It's either a last ditch effort, supplement or something used for very specific circumstances.
How the Pandemic Has Changed the Way We Sleep
"According to preliminary results of a study of sixteen hundred people from sixty countries, forty six percents of people reported poor sleep during the pandemic. That's up from just twenty five percent before the pandemic insomnia and vivid weird dreams, both caused by the increased stress of the time we're living through has been evident anecdotally and as indicated by a fourteen percent uptick in sleep. Medication Prescriptions Melatonin sales in over the counter supplement for the natural hormone that induces sleepiness are up forty four percents. Philip Musket a professor of Psychiatry at Columbia University Medical Center said he's avoiding prescribing medications to patients preferring to offer sleep hygiene tips. He's seen that actually staying asleep is the biggest problem for most people and says some of the primary factors causing that is that people are lacking in structure and exercise. Stain active can help you sleep more soundly and boost your immune system Dr Musk's also advises sticking to a regular sleep schedule and avoiding naps during the day.

Experts recommend that if you can't fall asleep or wake up in the middle of the night and are unable to go back to sleep after twenty minutes get out of bed and do something, relaxing and quotes. Natasha Bouillon a Phoenix based family physician at one medical, says most people's sleep problems right now either stem from a lack of normal schedule or general anxiety about the pandemic. Some tips she recommends mindfulness through meditation, exercise or cognitive behavioral therapy. To maintain a consistent sleep schedule, turn devices off an hour before going to sleep and make your sleeping space a device free zone, consider even ditching your smartphones alarm and getting an actual alarm clock, as for anyone, experiencing vivid dreams or nightmares Melinda Jackson, a senior lecturer at the Turner Institute for Brain and Mental Health at Monash University in Melbourne, says quote. During Times of stress, there's a release of narrow chemicals that can trigger these vivid dreams and nightmares in some people end quotes.

Going All In on Sleep Hygiene
"I love what you wrote here you do in our in our little prep document. He said okay. Gone all in on my sleep hygiene. Those words are music to my ears. Well you know I wrote this document before I went to bed last night and then last night was just in party with Mehan insomnia just a sexy dance between the two of us but it was okay. I figured it out I worked through it. I would say insomnia is probably not the maybe it is the right term but just I had a really hard time falling asleep. I could not do it last night. I did all my little things that I try but then finally I've mentioned this on a recent episode of here for you but I got mentioned again. A listener recommended something called good day. Chocolate sleep supplement candy coated pieces with one milligram of Melatonin per piece. Now got some in a grocery order. I should tell you Dorie yes I ordered it. I had done like a whole foods pickup order. Okay and I put this on my list thinking it'd be like a big bottle of vitamins. It is eight pieces of. Oh my gosh. It's so tiny. It's literally like the size of an a little cardboard box the size of an eraser that you get an elementary school. It's a very small. Wow or eight pieces of chocolate and I've already had two of them last night. So like you now loops and I just dropped. What on my desk so just FYI. I I don't know I need to do a little more research on if I can acquire more but they are basically giant chocolate eminem like candies that have Melatonin in them and at one thirty last night I took to them and that did help me transition into sleeping. Okay do you know. Do you know why you weren't able to fall asleep last night. Okay as I confessed to. You already pre recording. I was doing the thing where a looked at my phone late. Yeah and I regret it. I deeply regret it. So let me let me. May I fill listeners? In on kind of just what? I'm Lee the steps. I am taking s please. I would like nothing. So our we've talked about sleep hygiene a lot on forever thirty five and I have always found it to be a struggle and I've had sleep issues in the past and they go hand in hand with my anxiety so i. It's pretty clear to me that this is pandemic related. Yes omnia and stress like I know what it is and I do feel very fortunate that like while I do have to wake up and work and take care of my family. It's not like I have to wake up and be at an office eight o'clock so because when I used to get this kind of sleep. Insomniac used to be at work at eight and it would be this kind of like all night panic about it So so that is. That is very lucky for me. I feel like right now. That is that does help. But I'm trying to figure out ways in which to not Trigger this kind of bedtime sleeping Zayed's so the one thing I need to do that I think really helps get off my phone about an hour before I plan on falling asleep. Okay and that is hard for me because like when I go to wash my face a bring my phone okay. Do you do this studio the no? I put my phone away before I start my whole bedtime routine brain. It's like I want be looking at facebook while I'm washing my face. That's what I do. Here's what I do and like you. Can you're welcome to do or not do this? I don't care if I'm if I'm doing something in the living room like say watching TV. I will finish watching TV. I'll take one last look at my phone. And then I'll plug my phone in the kitchen and then like I'm done with the phone for the night. Ooh And I go into my bedroom. I change into my pajamas or maybe. I'm already in my pajamas. I do my whole you know. Wash my face put on my serums my lotions. I brush my teeth floss etc. Do Yoga Toes. I write in my journal I'll usually read kindle for a little bit Last night I was on my ipad looking for something but I will talk about in a little bit but I try and I try to stay off my ipad because then I get then. It's tempting to look at news websites and I don't want to be doing that and then I usually get so tired. I often fall asleep while reading. Yeah that's amazing like lights on kindle in hand and then I like jerk. Oh Okay and then. I'll put the kindle away turn up late and like really go to sleep. I feel like that's how you know that you hit Middle Age because I do that too and I feel like I would watch my parents do that and be like they are so weird though kick in their bedroom and they both leap with the lights on with books on their totally but like now we're there and it feels good and like you get why you just Kinda like close your eyes mid book. Yes I I've had that experience in my better sleep days and I and I I really admire that. You are so consistent with that that and not the just that it works but that like you. So much of it is forming the habit. And you've done that and you've done that as long as this podcast has been in existence even before you know well. Yeah I mean as discussed on this podcast. I have had to be consistent because of my sleep disorder and even though I still get night terrors. Having a consistent sleep routine does help. So did you talk to anyone. Like did someone guide you through figuring out asleep routine in terms of dealing with your sleep disorder or is this something. There's a lot of articles about it that I consulted. It's also partly why and Matt Matt and I are at odds about this. I like to have my bedroom be cave like I like it pitch dark preferably like blackout curtains. No late getting in quiet as to WHO and he likes to like. He likes to wake up with Natural Light. Which means that there's late seepage. All the time and I so yeah so so that's been that's often been a source of conflict but lake ultimately. I think the person with a sleep disorder wins out a man But yeah like some of the like I've talked about this before but like going to sleep at a consistent time every night is also very important. Yeah Yeah having that wind down period is important earplugs. I mask like do earplugs at night. I do okay okay. Do you have a certain brand of that? You like or is it just kind of like a generic drug store earplug. It's a generic drugstore earplug. I believe the one I have right now are from walgreens great shoutout to Walgreens shout to Walgreens I so I don't know I like a very loud white noise eight. Yes yes and I love the variety of white noise. Machines have cranking up all over my house. I have been finding Melatonin to be very useful and as well as reading and journaling at night. That does really kind of helped me wind down. It's the transition from phone to non phone that has been really hard and maybe I need to move my phone out of the bedroom completely. I've been leaving it on my desk. Which is in my bedroom and as you mentioned you like when we were talking about this previously I think work needs to be kept out of the bedroom but right now. My workspace is literally twenty four inches from my bed. That's very hard right now. I'm sitting at my desk and I can reach behind me and touch my bed. So that is. That is a little tricky. Like I will look at my computer and I'll think of something I haven't done for the podcast and I'll be like oh just do this one flip it. Oh men and do it. So so. That's that's hard for me to. I need to kind of start figuring that out but I will say I have been wearing an eye mask a lot more in not only is it helpful and filtering the light. There's something about the pressure of it. That is comforting. You do you experience that like the jazz header. Caress of an eye pillow against my face. I'm finding very soothing. That's very
The Lightbulb Strikes Back
"So we're talking with a niece Ramirez a material scientists about her new book on inventions the technologies that we've created that intern have shaped us one chapter that captures this dance and really threw me for a loop. Was the one on artificial light. I mean it's all around us and yet I don't give it a second thought or barely. Even I thought if I'm honest yeah I had no idea. The Light Bulb is such a simple invention and I used to be a professor for many years. If I were to give a lecture on it I would just say this is on and this is off the lecture go home. Well don't go home because in her book a nieces serves us up some late. Eighteen hundreds drama are characters. Thomas Edison to you probably know and William Wallace who you probably don't see Edison who is largely credited with the light bulbs. Invention was actually inspired after going to visit Wallace. One Night Wallace was super excited to have the Thomas. Edison at his house cooked them. A meal showed him like contraption. But at the end of the night Edison's like great. Start Buddy now watch me make this without you? He's leaving the man's house and he's saying I'm GonNa beat you wallace. You're going the wrong direction. And he does. I'm just GonNa say I feel like William? Almost got robbed Wallace did get rob. And what's so bad about him? I live two cities over from William Wallace lives. I've been here about ten years. I never heard Wallace right. And I go over to that city. Nobody's heard of walls. He's been completely erased even more complicated than the history of the light. Bulb is how artificial light has affected our lives. Our Body has two modes has daytime mode and a nighttime mode and how it knows what mode to be in is by the type of light it needs blue light to know that it should be in daytime mode where we have a higher temperature higher metabolism and then as the light changes where it has less blue sort of in the evening or when our ancestors were alive when we lived under candlelight our bodies would enter into nighttime mode and we would be in this rest or repair mode but most of us live by artificial lights. Yeah and so. We're getting continuous blue light all the time and we're daytime all the time right and so being you know. Constantly bathed in blue light can throw off our MELATONIN LEVELS. Right that hormone. That tells us kind of that. It sleep time. That's right that's right. It's an old molecule and we have in our bodies it tells all of ourselves to go into nighttime mode but I've heard that very small marine animals they have to and it lets them know to rise to the surface when it safe and wanted to go back down. So it's a very old molecule. It tells the cells that it is nighttime mode and so you should be in rest mode and So Melatonin is going throughout our bodies and it tells us to go into rest mode but Melatonin is suppressed when blue light is detected by the photo sensor there. Yeah right so some of the advice in the book is to reduce the amount of blue light. You're exposed to later at night so you kind of want redder late less blue light so powering down your cellphone and computers and maybe having kind of a nighttime only light in your room. That's more red light. Is that right? Yeah it sounds Corny. But I actually did it after I started writing this book and my brother who I live with he. He now wears these funky yellow glasses from time to time. I'm like crazy. But he wants to put put himself nighttime mode but but in the mornings we should have Bluer Light. So go outside. The Sun has blue light or blue. Led's or compact fluorescents as the sun sets. We reduce those blue lights. If you don't have Non Blue Lights you know. Just dim them. So there's not a lot of like going into your eye but you can use redder lights so there's red. Led's and incandescent bulbs yeah and then also changed the setting on your computer so that it's a nighttime mode. Nice okay. So it'll come as a surprise to probably nobody but our creation of artificial light. Has You know intern. Really negatively affected the natural world in some ways so when really concrete of this is the courtship of lightning bugs. Yeah Awhile I love firefly's and I didn't know that there was a bar scene going in my backyard when I saw firefly's and what's going on is the firefly mail is announcing himself saying. Hey I'm a male screen and the females looking and if she likes what she sees she'll flash back. I like you and then they go meet future firefly's but what I've learned is that the number firefly's is decreasing and it has to do with the streetlights so the male fireflies will announce himself and female firefly won't see him and so she won't flashback no future firefly's and another scenario which is even worse is that he'll announce himself with the street lights above him. She'll see him. She's not impressed. Because FEMALES LARRY. Flies like male fireflies bright lanterns in his lantern is looking pretty dim in front of that street light. So it's right like he has game but artificial late is coming in there and is it. Yeah is messing with him. He's like no it's bright really is bright and she's like. I'm sorry and she swipes left. That's it no future firefly's come on humans like help. Agai messing me up. I mean Gosh. What does it take? This is fun. Okay so something that really struck me was. How many historical figures we meet in your book who you know tinkered and tinkered away for months and years on those inventions like you spent pages describing Henry. Bessemer 's early experiments with making steel. Why was it important for you to kind of include that entire process? Well we kinda live in the microwave generation and we think that you know in three minutes Things are gonNA happen right away and scientists fun but science does take was some work and what? I'm trying to impress upon people. Is that even though? It was long and arduous for them. What motivated them that they were passionate about it. And when you're passionate about something that time doesn't seem to be so onerous so So I just thought it was important to show that people worked really hard to do things. And it's not an instant overnight success that it does require some some time and effort. Yeah so throughout the book. The inventors are noted as frequently for their successes and failures not just in perfecting their inventions but also their personalities. What made you decide to focus on that interplay? Well I think story years or stickier I wanted people to really resonate with technology and talking about stuff by itself portrait of stuff that works for some people but if you hear about the people in the motivation and then you see oh you see their flaws. Then you really are pulled into the story and to be quite honest. I all I actually wanted. To debunk a lot of geniuses to. I wanted to really get into people's stuff and so I'm in the archives and I'm looking at old papers and I'm like all right. I'm here to get into your dirty laundry. Tell me about you and Samuel Morse. I'm like all right. I'm in you I'M GONNA. Oh Wow you're not such a nice person. I'm gonNA write that down. I I need people to know about that. Because we loft these geniuses and what I want the next generation to feel like they too can be inventors right because if we make these people seem so brilliant that they feel distant feels unachievable. But if we're like. Wow that guy was kind of a jerk. If he can do it I can do it That's that's my motivation. That's exactly what I want people to say.
How Does Jet Lag Work?
"GonNa talk about jet lag. I grew up flying back and forth between America and Singapore. So I wanNA share what I know about jetlag with you. First of all jet lag occurs when you travel between two or more time zones via air travel and the thing is it disrupts your circadian rhythm. Your body's natural cycle and you're sleeping patterns now. The Circadian Rhythm dictated by the daily appearance of the Sun. So light and darkness. Influence our bodies. But when this is disrupted it's official name is D- synchronous symptoms include insomnia fatigue loss of concentration irritability depression and even gastro intestinal ills but look jet lag or decent. Kronos is prevalent a nineteen ninety. Eight study found that ninety four percent of Americans get it and forty five percent reported that their symptoms were severe. So what causes jetlag? Well there is a whole field that exists to study how life is affected by time it's called chronobiology and here is what it's taught us. I late triggers a reaction in a special I pigment this activates response in the neurons of your brains hypothetical. Mus The twenty thousand nerve cells located. They're they're called the Super Cosmetic nucleus or S. C. N. for short are what starts your body's daily processes and also the lack of light causes other developments in your body. Circadian Rhythm tells you when to sleep and went awake and it regulates your body temperature blood pressure digestion urine production and hormone secretion so for example when it's time to sleep the SEM releases Melatonin and that encourages you to go to sleep when you cross into multiple timezones though your body has trouble resetting quickly and this is worse when you fly east. This is called phase advance. Flying West is called phase delay. This is because our circadian clock is actually closer to twenty five hours. Going East would require going to bed earlier. A study showed it takes four days to adjust to a twelve hour phase delay. In comparison. It takes more than eight days to adjust to a twelve hour phase advance and also jetlag is worse when you have to awaken when your body is still at its minimum temperature. There is also research from the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. The indicates jet LAG is connected to your L. H. x. One gene and this gene regulates neural development and Circadian Rhythm. And Sleep. Okay. So we've got what causes it. What are the symptoms? How do you know if you've got jetlag? Well it's time to talk to Dr Christian beyond the insomnia fatigue loss of concentration irritability depression and even gastro intestinal ills. There's even more symptoms. It can aggravate menstrual discomfort or contribute to the development of heart disease and diabetes jetlag also releases stress hormones. Which make you anxious and grumpy? It drives up your blood pressure. It sends inflammation stimulating chemicals here arteries it also disrupts your appetite regulating hormones. It disrupts the release of Melatonin which we mentioned earlier. Not only does this affect sleep but it can also protect you from cancer in finally research on animals shows that there's other symptoms as well. A twenty ten study at the University of California found that when subject to jetlag the brains of hamsters created neurons? At half their normal rate they showed memory and learning deficits. And a two thousand. Six study at the University of Virginia. Found that younger mice rebounded from jet lag but making older mice undergo the equivalent of a Washington to Paris flight. Every week would actually increase their death rate yet. That's how big it is well for mice at least so we've got what causes jetlag and we have it's symptoms. You're wondering Dr Christian where the remedies. How do I fix this? You've probably heard of some of the common remedies like operating on your new time zone before you fly there or wearing yourself out before exercising by exercising in two thousand nine researchers recommend the following regimen to beat jetlag. I you readjust your rhythm before the trip by using a light box that simulates daylight now depending on whether you're flying phase advance phase. Delay us the light box either. In the morning or the evening to stimulate your circadian rhythm another suggestion from the same researchers was to take a Melatonin supplement by changing when you take the doses in relation to going to sleep. You can alter your circadian rhythms the CDC actually recommends exercise to a balanced diet. And lots of rest in the weeks before you fly. They also recommend avoiding alcohol and Caffeine as well as drinking water. Finally they recommend wearing loose comfortable clothing. While you're flying and moving around the cabin this can help avoid thrombosis or blood clots so do not take sleep medication. So you can sleep it off in your seat. In mobilization for long periods can actually raise your risk for thrombosis and this can actually lead to a stroke. So there you have it. The causes symptoms and remedies for jetlag.
Tools For Faster Recovery: Sound Therapy, Vibration Therapy & More - With Guest Ben Greenfield
"Listen have you ever thought about about what the true limits of human potential are are we limited by our physicality limited by our ability to think differently and are we limited by our ability to express health and wellness or our ability to recover quickly from the things that we go through. Well today. You're going to find out out that the human potential is actually boundless. We are boundless individuals. Even our brains capacity to learn to process information. We're only scratching the surface on what we are realizing we're capable of doing. You might have heard the statement that we only use maybe ten percent of our brain. But that's not actually true. We in fact us a hundred percent of our brains every day even were sleeping. They're different parts of our brain that going into overdrive doing a lot of work and even a lot lot of housekeeping but the sad reality is we use one hundred percent of our brain but we don't use it very well we don't use it to one hundred percent of its capacity. And that's one of the things we're GONNA we'll be talking about today is how do we actually improve that amazing organ that's governing our entire life or at our brain is where we're able to actually really see right. We're taking in information we have these optical receptors but we're seeing inside of our incredible brain right so it's like a a a screen inside of our brain. They were really watching these things. It seems like we're seeing taken to the outside world but that visual of our brain is actually towards the back of our brain. That's one thing how we're seeing taking information. Site sounds our senses but also our brain is controlling our metabolism if we talk about the Hypothalamus for example which is Kinda master master gland and our brain it determining in communicating with our thyroid which is regulating our metabolic rate our adrenals which is determining different hormones. Are we in a state of stress where we are potentially breaking down Tissue in our bodies our muscle tissue and turning it into glucose for fuel because because we're running in this hyper sympathetic nervous system so your brain is controlling based on your perception of reality and the awareness of the nutrients we have available in our the system and the list goes on and on is controlling metabolism right and so those are just a couple of aspects are emotion or mood how we feel we have these neurotransmitters and hormones and your hypoth- ou- Mrs Actually the interface of all of those things are neurotrophic transmitters in hormones in determining how we feel and how our cells communicating with each other which is kind of important and so again us understanding and supporting our brain health and also our physicality you know the stuff from the head down what's up there. How can we perform better? How can we increase our rate of recovery? What if we're injured? What can we do to get better faster faster? And so we're GONNA be talking about all of that today. With one of the foremost experts on the planet and his new work is going to talk about and teach you how to become boundless. And he's just going to provide you with a ton of new things that you can have at your disposal throughout your entire life and before we do that. I WanNa give a quick shot. It's one of the things we're going to talk about today which is helping to regulate your sleep and today more than ever humans we're traveling where cloud hopping we are moving around at a pace that our ancestors didn't even know was possible via train plane automobile. All right we can move around and the crazy thing is that your body is always looking for its place in all of this. It's looking for its ability to sync up with the environment. We are hardwired to connect with their environment to circadian rhythm. Your Circadian Rhythm is matching up with the you know the Journal Nocturnal Patterns of the Earth every single day. And when you go when you jump into a different time zone the earth in like your body trying to locate each other to get sinked up again. That's determining win. Your hormones are getting secreted. Certain neural transmitters. Doing their job. Your mobility in your gut. All of that stuff is trying to sink back into a rhythm in so this is why why. I'm a big fan of helping your body to reset when you travel so today. A lot of people are leaning towards reaching reaching towards Melatonin to help them to sleep better. And there's an issue with this. Because according to a study published in the Journal of Biological Rhythms found that faulty timing timing or large doses of Melatonin can cause desensitization of your melatonin receptors. Basically your body. We'll continue to produce Melatonin and you can have melatonin supplements but your ability to actually use. It is going to go down and when that happens we can run into some serious problems problems and so we want to be very judicious and cautious about our use of Melatonin. Now I'm a big fan of Melatonin in spot cases or there is some evidence towards microdosing however in those spot cases especially when travelling changing timezones. That's a great time to utilize melatonin. Oh Tony because it helps your body to sink back up in the Melatonin isn't just about sleep. It's not a sensitive it's about regulating your circadian timing system and so for that I'm big Fan of sub lingual spray under your tongue. Hold that in their high quality earth grown nutrient source of Melatonin. That's something synthetic just because you could buy whatever. Convenience store or pharmacy does not mean that that it's high quality in also. The dose can be problematic. especially if you're taking pills like to find the right dose for you versus a couple of
Can Camping Help Us Sleep Better?
"Hey grainstuff Lauren. Vogel bomb here in this Hetty era of peak efficiency officiency in productivity when APPS and software. Promise you the fastest path to personal or professional organization. You might even want to regulate the amount of time that you spend dozing between excessive screen. Time longer working hours you might be desperate for a more natural and probably earlier bedtime but setting a sleep schedule is no small no matter how ever a study published in current biology shows that there might be a rather simple solution a weekend. Camping could be the path to an earlier bedtime and no. That's not because of exhaustion from constant grizzly vigilance. Although that can't hurt it's because we rely on electrical light at night and get get to little exposure to daylight so our circadian rhythms push for later bedtime. Our Circadian Rhythms Are Twenty Four Hour Cycle of behavioral responses to light and bark this and that controls our biological clocks. The researchers studied campers for a week in the winter and a weekend in the summer to test seasonal snow and environmental circadian changes during the winter. The cameras used no electronic light at all. The study found that after spending time in natural real light in darkness the participants adapted to the natural light dark cycle. They slept longer and went to bed earlier than they would electrical environments a whole two and a half hours hours earlier for the winter group notably. The research shows that even around the winter solstice when nights are long folks enjoyed an earlier bedtime after being out the nature for a few days Milton levels which regulate wakefulness and sleep rose night and fell right when the camera's got up the typical cycle but before were they trump through the wilderness. They're MELATONIN levels. Were slightly off following hours after they got up meaning their bodies still desperately wanted to sleep. Camping camping is particularly advantageous on the weekend. The research also shows because that's when we usually wake and sleep later and have circadian delays. Even more benefits might come from knowing humans respond to seasonal light so strongly a Kenneth Right a CO author of the study points out that workplaces with more natural light could lead to more arrested and productive workers so it is possible to reset our biological clocks just like a lot of animals.

"Power. You guys. Managing this your family because you written a lot about this. And we just need to make sure that we're we're talking about. And you guys have done such a good job of saying this has got to be straightened out as a family. Absolutely. I think you hit the nail on the head with sleep. Because like, you know, I'm sure with the health aspects if you aren't getting enough sleep, but actually largely doesn't matter how good your eating or anything else like that can largely be cancelled out by poor sleep, and you have bad blood sugar levels. You have bad stress hormones all of that suffers when you don't sleep enough. And we all know that and still so few of us are actually getting really good sleep in. So I just some practical things that have helped with the kids. We don't do any screens after dinner. So we have a family charging station in the kitchen and everything goes there. They don't have their own devices other than computers for school in bad. But all of that gets charged in the same place at night. So nobody's on screens. Once it's time, and that also helps just on a cellular level because if you're not exposed to that amount of blue light actually, improves your body's ability to create melatonin. Which improves sleep? So we're really strict about the screen time and back to the systems that's really helped us dial-in sleep as well. So just like we would set an alarm to wake up we have really pretty strict bedtime for both the kids and for us, and that's been keys that there they go to sleep on schedule, and they realized that we do too. So we're not being hypocritical by forcing them to have an early bedtime. And then we're staying up to all hours of the night. It's something that's a family value as we are ties sleep, and they know that. But I also think with kids you do have to address the sleep environment because they are so sensitive typically to the environmental factors when they're sleeping. So whether that's things like too much light coming in or any kind of sound that can wake them up making sure they're the very basics warm enough or cool enough in and all that. So we have blackout curtains in every room that get closed at night. And that's made a really big difference in how long they will sleep in how deep it will sleep. And that's been well worth it for kids who specifically struggle with sleep issues, a tip that I always. Give I'm not affiliated with them in any way. But there's a website called brain harmony, and they have this pillow is called a dream pad. And you can basically it's got a bone conductivity aspect to it that helps essentially create brainwaves that mimic sleep in put the body in Paris. And so I don't wanna parents, especially parents with any kind of the child has any kind of learning struggle or processing disorder those really helped them to actually physically be able to get in the right state for sleep until for couple of hours, especially really active that's been key.

"And dinner. I just think it's it's almost like a little bit of a myopic overly restrictive diet. That's kind of like a a lazy way out. But that ultimately if you eat that way your entire life. I suspect you get pretty bored. Most people have talked to about it. They're like love her by. But after a month or two just like, I'm getting tired, and I agree. And I I would be prone to think that this would show some type of deleterious impact in the long term. Just like, you know, we we in the kinda paleo-ish camp or one in the paleo-ish can't loves to criticize the vegetarian diet for the potential nutrient deficiencies, I think the same logic applies here that a diet that's too extreme in what it limits opens the door increases, the likelihood of some type of neutral deficiency in the long-term. Yeah. I wanted to ask you one other question. And this was just like a little anecdote from your book that I found very interesting, and it was this idea of melatonin actually being something that could help with a leaky gut. And I'm curious if that is literally like just supplementing with melatonin, or if it is more related to sleeping, more or sleeping better. Or what? The deal with that would definitely say that the the optimum choice would be to have your sleep be adequate and quality to try to goose the melatonin pathway for gut health, but there has been at least one trial showing inability to improve IBS symptoms with supplemental melatonin and melatonin does seem to have an anti leaky guts mechanism to it perhaps due to its antioxidant capacity. So it I mean, it's certainly something that you could tinker with it's not something I use for the application in the clinic. If someone's having a hard time sleeping than I think Milton is is definitely a supplement to consider because it has secondary health benefits. So I see it having applicable there. But if someone's having a hard time sleeping, I would say look into the health of your gut because it has been fairly well identified that inflammation in the gut can lead to insomnia. So there's there's kind of this this closed loop circle. Where problems in the gut may lead to insomnia that insomnia may decrease melatonin melatonin may make gut worse than they're stuck in this self feeding cycle. So yes, melatonin can't help with leaky gun. Any of those studies? Remember how much melatonin was being used? You know, I don't I'm assuming it's probably anywhere from five milligrams a day to ten to ten probably the somewhat standard o- slow bit on the higher side there. But it's it's not something. I would say use a probiotic way before you use melatonin for for healing that he got interesting. I thought that that was kind of a cool anecdote was the USA melatonin. So all I'll linked to some of the research on this.

"Lake so it will help solve the suger to be stored as fat let night meal might tell your body to store a big porcelain appeared as fat instead of using it as glycogen all burning attacked of but right away then another interesting thing where light and insulin they get together is few years ago uh lives humans energetic studies to look at dive itit's uh found that melatonin this septa this is a protein that bind to melatonin and signals this sale that hey melatonin as they are do your stuff to that melatonin deceptive mutare some appeared again again in human subjects who were either vertical or overworked and that was confusing for a lot of people so that's why a lot of research went into it and now we know that the melatonin to septa his byzantine pancreas and when it and give this week melatonin than it tells the pancreas has not to secreted as much insulin so that might be the reason why at night time as we naturally buildup our melatonin level we also tell our pancreatic that this is nighttime the kitchen is closed undo can go back to sleep so it's almost like asleep signalled 210 creates and at that time if we eat than we end up storing more in fact and also keeping up lots of high powered long period of time white interesting when iraqi towns like when when people go in ketosis and night i always have background ketones because of the way i eat but i'm now at a three zero carb diet most of the time i i cycle in and out of it were not tying the were not handed pancras in at all adds there's many different pathways that are affected by key towns but i i'm unaware of of circadian research tied into ketosis but given at so many people are now doing things like bulletproof coffee or keto diets and things like that do you think that there is a role in setting circadian rhythm by manipulating fat.

"Retired i'd been up quite a long time as soon as i boarded the plane i took another dose of melatonin so if you've listened to the sleep episode you know that i use melatonin occasionally when i travel just a step away a little bit and remind you what melatonin is four melatonin is naturally produced in your body in a circadian rhythm that has to do with nighttime and daytime to your body will start producing melatonin in the evening it's one of the ways that your body start signalling hey it's time to start getting sleepy so what supplemental melatonin is doing is kind of forcing that signalling to happen at frankly an unnatural time and a lot of things control your body's melatonin i'm not going to get into that right now but one of the big things that helps control it is exposure to light and dark so really when you're going to beginning on a plane at three 45 for instance and you need your body to think hay were that's about bedtime so that when you get to your destination you're already getting adjusted melatonin his what i used to help but i don't stop there i have no reservations in telling you that i also as soon as the boarding door is closed so i don't do this while people are still getting on or while they're still any really chance that the fight might not be taking off but after the boarding doors clothes and the plane pushed away from the gate on this trip i took one zantac's now for many of you all that may not be comfortable for you i have the prescription from my doctor i've had the prescription honestly for about four years now and when i say the prescription i mean this same bottle of the annex had do not take it on obviously a daily basis only take it if i'm flying from for instance east coast to europe because i know i'm going to have about uh at least an eight hour flight that i can sleep on i have found xanax to work really well to help me go to sleep and stay asleep for most of the flight so on this particular flight to portugal that's what i did.

"Isn't directly tied to sleepiness it's sort of a promoter of sleeping when it's supposed to occur but more important than that what we find is in individuals who who can't perceive light these still have a circadian rhythm they still have a melatonin cycle so they have melatonin that rises and falls it's just that it is not coordinated with the with the twenty four hour day and so compared to individuals that perceive light do we have it among people that are blind you see that the end up suffering from various sleep disorders so they'll have excessive sleepiness during daytime at certain times of the year and then other times of the year they might actually suffer from insomnia and that's because this cycle of melatonin seems to be shifting over time and so they're sleepiness and wakefulness is also shifting as well you know it turns out that our understanding of how melatonin is actually regulated and it's linked to perception of light a lot of that understanding comes from research with people that have different degrees of blindness so you have individuals who can still perceive light thought there considered legally blind and in in those individuals the melatonin cycle circadian rhythms everything seems to be normal and properly synchronized with the 24hour day but in people with total blindness who do not perceive light at all uh this is where their circadian rhythms their melatonin cycle becomes de synchronized and so our understanding of how light synchronizes uh melatonin secretion and are are now 24hour circadian rhythm sleepiness and wakefulness and all of that a lot of that understanding comes from research that was done among the uh among individuals with different degrees of blindness.

"And so it incur in what happens is gets in a pattern all of our hormones work on a pattern in so by getting up and doing a little bit exercise and that first part of the morning we're helping to encourage that quotas saw secretion so that it can reset itself and gradually dropout and be a low in the evening the help facilitate sleep in the bottom line kind of peace for that is that quotas saw in melatonin have sort of an inverse relationship so it your cortisol elevated melatonin is suppressed and that's not good because melatonin is kind of like a a gear shift for us changing stages of sleep when it's very important in initiating that so so that's one strategy and to bata that's four minutes of exercise people could do that i've got this minitrampoline you know you could jump on a rebounder a school for quick power walker take a couple of laps laps around your your your block a you know maybe this is the time it you go to germany make that a habit but even he workout a later part of the day which i don't recommend working in i i actually just did a post about this yesterday in this is all based on research we want to have that evening workout wrapped up if you wanna get optimal sleep you wanna be done three hours before you plan on board asleep because it elevates quarter saw and it elevates your core body temperature which is another issue and so that's kind of a good transition is sleeping cooler people have probably heard a lot about this and again i've been pushing his in culture for several years now buds are bodies have a process called thermal regulation and this is there is essential a drop in our core body temperature at night were designed that way.

"What happens is when melatonin is suppressed because of exposure to light at night what you can get is a shift in the secretion of that melatonin so it can be pushed to a different time of the day so if you actually had somebody that did nightshift work on a regular basis every single day for for many many many weeks you might see that are melatonin cycle is pushed to a different time of the day now what we find with shift workers though is that they don't stay on a night shift schedule on their weekends on their days off they wanna join their families hang out with friends they wanna you know participate in the world of the living so to speak and so they end up switching back to a day shift schedule so they never end up getting completely use to shift work so that their melatonin cycle might completely shift so what ends up happening is these individuals don't ever really seem to benefit from from that full rise in melatonin that somebody who's working the day shift consistently would have how did you go about looking at the role melatonin plays an increasing the risk of cancer so we chose to look at uh something called eight hydroxy de oxy guan asean real mouthful to say this is a a marker that can be easily measured in urine it turns out that wind reactive oxygen species make their way to the nucleus of a cell they have a real high propensity to react with dna and if this remains in the in the dna it will lead to a mutation that can then contribute to to cancer.
