    More calories destroy my sleep ?

    I'm quite thin (barely 70 kg for 1m82) but I notice that each time I increase my calories on purpose (to try to gain weight for example) my sleep problems seem to get worse. I have big problems with insomnia, but my best nights sleep is when I'm "undernourished", I actually even perform better...

    7 day water fast + Rectal Ozone + RO water enemas = ended a 7 year journey of hell!

    Just went through hell and back. Been struggling with insomnia and gut issues for the longest time. Came across RP and got a little careless with antibiotics which ended up giving me SIBO (I suspect). Took over a year to get rid of it but developed histamine issues. Tried everything under...

    Body temperature/bounding pulse insomnia.

    This has been happening for more or less past 7 months. It's worse if I do ANY exercise during the day, even some slow walking. If I sit on my **** the entire day it gets tiny bit better, but even if i go shopping which takes me like 20 min at a slow pace then the symptoms will be aplified...

    Hyperserotonemia confirmed as a cause of autism and insomnia

    Given the flood of recent studies lately, with virtually identical findings as the study below, I don't think much needs to be said. So much for "serotonin is the happiness hormone"...Yet despite the solid evidence implicating serotonin as a (if not THE) major cause of autism, even this study...

    I have read that it should actually improve sleep, and make you relaxed and sleepy but me and another person I give the t4 both experience insomnia or only a few hours of sleep in total, with tossing and turning, when we take it in the evenings. The dose is 25 mcg. Has anybody else experienced...

    A fairly quick article on how I tackled and restored my ability to sleep: How to Sleep, When You Can't. Having suffered the most severe form of insomnia, I can say the two most therapeutic things—after cessation of alcohol consumption—were casein protein and pregnenolone at bedtime, although...

    Uridine Monophosphate For Fatty Liver/weight Problems/depression/anxiety/insomnia

    From a Ray Peat view of the organism (humans), it is generally viewed that all degenerative conditions are interrelated in one way or another. As is in my experience, mental and physical problems go hand in hand and rarely ever present singularly. The major themes of my struggles have been...
