2019-06-28T14:41:27-06:00

There are two planets, one where you get a great night’s sleep and feel phenomenal the next day. And a second where you can’t get a good night’s sleep, and your tomorrow feels like trudging through molasses. In modern life, it’s easier to end up on planet number two. Healthy sleep is under continual attack, and threats against achieving a restorative night’s sleep keep mounting. Today’s sleep gets mugged in many ways: By chronic daily stressors, like tending aging parents or having kids who announce they want to change their genders, or from single severe traumas—such as tornadoes and wildfires to [...]

Are your antidepressant or sleep meds eroding your bones? Or is one of them helping? Which are doing what?

Yikes! Why doesn’t this make headline news? Canada has socialized medicine, so they have great records. Researchers identified women 50 years or older who had osteoporosis, and what prescription medications they had used in the years prior. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, atypical antipsychotics, and benzodiazepines were associated with higher risk of osteoporosis. Tricyclic antidepressants were associated with lower odds of osteoporosis. These drug effects were independent of mental illness diagnoses, including depression and schizophrenia. The authors from the Department of Psychiatry, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, concluded that some psychotropic medications are associated with an increased risk of bone loss, [...]

It seems that how we sleep affects our perception of how we live, and vice versa. We’re all connected. As above, so below; from sleep to sleep affects how we move through our world and attract what comes our [...]

Sleep Performance Anxiety

2019-02-14T13:55:09-06:00

But anthropologists have been studying traditional cultures and seeing that very healthy people can sleep in very different patterns, or for less hours, and do just fine. This October 2015, here is yet another study published in Cell Biology by UC Berkley. It shows that three traditional native societies get an average of 6.5 hours sleep a night, and stay healthy and have lots of energy and stable weight. It is not [...]
