    Anabolism all the time = more dreams. Why?

    Sincer started eating 500g+ carbs a day, a meal every 2 hours I started sleeping way deeper but at the same time I always have vivid dreams. I don't wake up tired but I would like to know why it happens. I remember when I was not peating, dreams were very rare. I think that my mind was on low...

    This magic morning.

    So, I awakened at 4am. Felt like sitting with my laptop to read, but instead began my morning exercise/stretch routine. It's upper body day so a little different from lower body day. I grudgingly went into the library where I have two yoga mats over the rug with a rug pad. Underneath is our...

    Easiest way to increase body temperature

    I tell you that by doing this you will cure many of your diseases. My advice is Wear More Clothes, simple as that. When it was winter I always have been complaining about being bloated, being foggy, fatigued and having a low quality sleep. During that time I also woke up few times a night. It...

    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...

    A left lateral body position increases pulmonary vein stress in healthy humans

    Pulmonary vein (PV) stretch is proarrhythmic for atrial fibrillation (AF). AF patients often report that a left lateral (LL) body position can trigger arrhythmia symptoms. Because the PV myocardium is thought to trigger AF, we hypothesized that the LL compared to the supine body position...

    How vitamin D helps you sleep like a king

    Vitamin D literally got rid of most of my sleep disturbances, such as restless leg syndrome, long sleep onset, nocturia, shallow sleep, bad dreams, random body aches, etc. Diet obvious also played a huge role, but it felt like vit D was that final puzzle piece for me...

    My sleep is literally like a coma. Can't wake up, feeling drunk after I do

    You can stab me or shoot me when sleeping, it would not wake me up. When someone is trying to wake me up, I'm aware of it, but can't control my body and bring myself out of the sleep. Sometimes, I have extremely strong nausea, which I'm also aware of but still can't wake up. When I somehow...

    Do we really need 7-8 hours of sleep ? Does low stress/faster metabolism lower the time our body's require to rest ?

    I noticed that when my health was bad or when I had a stressful job I could sleep 10 hours a day probably - I know that if I had a long day at work and only got 6 hours of sleep I would wake up very tired and with adrenaline pumping - did not feel well rested at all - I would get so tired from...

    Sleep Times the cause of low testosterone in contemporary society?

    I believe this is one of the most overlooked aspects of testosterone decline in males, I understand the argument about diet, drug use etc, the claim that humans are becoming weaker all over the world because of this doesn’t add up, records are being broken regularly and sports performance is...
