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.

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 The Carlat Psychiatry Podcast
"Sleep system or dot is call it primary insomnia. There are three types of insomnia one when it takes more than half an hour to fall asleep to when you wake up in the middle of the night or early morning and can't fall back asleep three when your sleep is such poor quality that you feel rested even when you get but all of us have a rough night from time to time and insomnia is only a disorder when it happens repeatedly and here we have numbers at least three nights out of the week for at least one month. Sounds kind of arbitrary. But there's some logic to those limits and it has to do with the most common close of insomnia when things are going well. Our inner clock corrects itself. After a night of poor sleep. The clock is set by neuro. Hormones like melatonin cortisol and about a dozen other chemicals that rise and fall over twenty four hour cycle in our body. The clock is pretty smart and it usually resets itself. If we let it go about its business we can get in the way of that repair however when we do things to compensate for a night of poor sleep things like sleeping in or napping to catch up drinking more caffeine or worrying too much. If we'll be able to sleep the next night. Those are all natural reactions to insomnia but they make the problem worse in the long term. It's like trying to catch your breath if you think too much about your breathing and try too hard to get. Just the right amount of air in you'll end up feeling more short of breath and before best to trust your lungs to do their job. Sometimes they'll draw too much oxygen or too little but they'll self-correct and smooth out any bumps along the way you're going to see this theme throughout this podcast part of sleeping better is learning to trust your body to do its best. It may not be perfect but it generally does a better job.
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. Which is your fight and flight branch of your nervous system. A high heart rate variability gender lee indicates a strong guardia vascular system and low levels of stress being in a constant state of fight or flight makes it physiologically harder to focus harder to meditate. Relax sleep or even exercise because your body and your mind think that you are under threat and needs to be escaping danger and not sleeping not focusing on your work now like i said this does of abyss.

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.

Guys went from I think the first week we attract I. I slept for an after four point. Three hours for seven hours five point four five point seven. I'm up just over six hours a night on average now, but the sleep efficiencies really were. The cool part is so I haven't had probably last month. I'm a week below ninety and some weeks are just one hundred I. Every hour lay in bed. I sleep. Every and it's you know I'm asleep within a couple of minutes, and if I do wake up in the middle is are the sleep tracking sheet I'm using think as fifteen thirty forty-five minutes our kind of ankles, but it's like I wake of online fall asleep again immediately, not worried about it at early those down as I might say woke up, but that I had zero minutes woken up. So still gives you a hundred percent sleep efficiency. And it's really cool to see that and have more time in the day, and to also feel feel better than I did. Mention America for the call. I think I'm ready to open that window up a little bit more. I've been a little bit more active in the day, and I feel like I could use a little more hours there by how this toolkit to be able to do that and I know that if I less sleep efficiency undisclosed, my sleep Wendo up again and start to build confidence again. Yeah, exactly, and it can be helpful to suggests recognized the waking during the night is a completely normal off sleep Even people have no issues with sleep. Typically wake many times during the night the differences. They. Don't pay any attention to them. You know so. They'll pull back to see really quickly I'm probably won't even remember those wake innings. So that can be really helpful to it goes back to off the educational component, just recognizing understanding what normal sleeve Ashley is a waking during the night completely normal. The problem is often how we react to those awakenings that determines how easy it might be full back to sleep. I, love it, so this is I. Hope an interesting to the audience like I said. This is sort of different. Than our normal topic talking about academics talking to research talking about building all businesses. but I bet and the reason I put this episode. Is that I I? I believe that it's it's probably pretty prevalent in. In this field for people to have at least have some struggle asleep, and certainly some that would be adding issues insomnia so.

Falling asleep is a totally different problem. That someone who wakes up. Ed can't go to sleep so if you are somebody who is waking up at dead. Your and can't fall asleep that is. Let's just walk through some possibilities here because there's a lot of different possibilities when When we talk about Sleep issues so number one is. I can't fall asleep. I go to bed. That's that's what's called insomnia but it's time to go to bed. It's really my time to go to bed. I gotta get up at six o'clock at its ted thirty a good bed and you lay in bed for an hour or so before you could fall asleep. That's insomnia so insomnia could be cost for both people things there. We've spoken about it. It passive calls Stop looking at screen. Time several hours before bed because watching a screed like a computer screen or your fold screed or televisions greed. The screens are folk sinead. Anna very high hurts. Sixty fifty sixty hertz is what they're focused on. That is a training. Your brain at fifty to sixty hertz. Your brain waves are only supposed to be focused at the highest hurts of about. Twenty eight hurts which is a high beta wave. So you're trading your brain at a super high beta wave of course your Go that high. But you're in trae your brain to be a high beta wave. Nobody could fall asleep in a high beta wave. You have to get down to a data wave to get to sleep somewhere between five fifteen hurts to be able to start to fall asleep so it's difficult to be looking at your fode it at. It's time to go to bed. So you put your foot by your side of your bed. You try to go to sleep. Itself doesn't allow your brain to get to data wave to get to sleep. That itself could be a problem so number. Would you can't fall asleep. Stop us leads. Greens several sarah hours. Before you go to bed. Why do that already. They still kit fall asleep. Okay yeah i think that could be taking place is your is your other. Have a little teeny glared at your brain called peel glared. That's supposed to be secreted toted at the time before you're supposed to go to sleep so you could use sabella toted. It's typically recommended that us about three milligrams ability billeted about a half hour before bed to help fall asleep. Though we have melatonin in our store we also have a product called. It sobbed atoll it. Our store that has the billeted has of seville lariat route. Add some other herbs. That could be very calm made to help you fall asleep. So everwood screen time to low bella towed levels Ballato levels are also controlled. A go along with it. An inverse relationship with cortisol cortisol is a stress horrible so vibe under a lot of stress this is why if you've ever been a lot of stress it's difficult for you to fall asleep so it is because if you have a lot of a lot of stress you have a lot of cortisol secreted in it you have a lot of cortisol flying through your bloodstream. You won't make bella toted or you won't release bella oded from the pineal glad in going to be difficult to fall asleep. So deal was stress levels. That's why sometimes people do better exercise. He'd at night before bed. Because it could help bert off some at cortisol and that helps them their body release melatonin to help them fall asleep so exercise it before bed kid be beneficial in that case. There's other reasons why you could fall asleep. And i could. We could talk for a long time. Just to sleep patterns now waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to fall back asleep has to do with other issues. That could be very complex to but usually are not related to melatonin. They can be related to adrenal bird out because at night so at night. You're in a fasted state so you have any said snyder cock or something like that ed. Now you're fasting but there's one part of your body that needs glucose all night long your muscles don't need a lot of glucose 'cause you're not exercising the rest of your body doesn't need a lot of glucose senior not doing a whole lot of activity. Things are in a stalled while you're sleeping but your brain is always active in order for your braid to continue to be active. It needs glucose your adrenals release cortisol at night to stimulate the glucose breakdown of glycogen stores of the liver to keep a steady glucose level to keep your brain alive. So what person says i wake up about water to fall asleep. Just find i wake up about. What are two o'clock. And i can't fall back asleep again. That's usually because they're a drills are deficient probably because of past stress. Baby kurds stress. But there are drills are deficient so they have adapted jobs or some adrenal support F you could support the jurado to get back healthy adrenals again that all that whole system working to get there could be some other things with mineral deficiency. That can cause a person to not be able to fall asleep. Her not be able to get back asleep at night either. It has this little diagram talks about leg crabs that would be the deficiency issues. Acid reflux will not go back to gut health and other issues like pain so paid could be an issue that keeps a person up. Doesn't allow them to get back asleep. I would suggest if you really have issues with had zombie ed sleep patterns. That you do call it. Make an appointment to talk about them if your kid Deal with it to kid figuring out with some of those brief things. I spoke about here. Another thing to try is the insomnia programs on your rife We've had people say they've tried to but it didn't help at all we've had other people saying they tried to be your dig for them so bella towed come out that sidonie. Net high dose militated has been showed it several studies that its bid helpful for sound cancer patients to help with cancer so bill toted is is not contra indicated for cancer patients that could be helpful for cancer patients. So i would not discourage you from trying to take you know. I don't wanna do that. That is going to be dependent upon. It could be good for cancer. So i would say try bell. Toted the insomniac we have. We've had a lot of people with very good success with that..
