    Vitamin D Supplementation is Improving my Sleep

    For the past few months I've been taking an oral vitamin D supplement, and I'm sleeping better than I have since I was a kid. Some nights I don't wake up to pee, which is really significant for me, because typically I get up at least twice. I'm taking a 4000IU supplement on average three times...

    Waking up early with painful morning wood

    I usually go to bed between 11pm and 12am and sleep 8 - 9 hours but lately I have been waking up at 5 or 6am with extreme morning wood. It's actually a little painful and causes me to wake up. I usually fall back asleep within 10 to 15 minutes but the remaining sleep is not restful and I need...

    How Do You Ensure A Good Night's Sleep?

    This is one of these issues that's been plaguing me for 2-3 years now. Actually, it's been plaguing me since I started working. I figure that's at least part of the issue - it's subconscious, or psychosomatic, whatever. Why do I think? Because it's almost exclusively an issue when I have to go...

    Chronic Pain Relieved Greatly By Benadryl/diphenhydramine & Nightmares (story-time)?

    I'm including details here that I've never told anyone/written that much about to my knowledge, but all of it does not need to be read if you're not used to my extremely long, often (arguably) strange posts I make here. So I was going to post here about it (the pain), but figured it would be a...

    T4 Causes Sleep Problems At Nights?

    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...

    Inclined Bed Therapy - Sleeping With The Head End Of The Bed Elevated

    I was surprised to see that there wasn't a thread dedicated to discussing people's experience with it so here we go. At the risk of stating the obvious, it is just raising the head of your bed 6 inches and sleeping at an incline. It has been reported to achieve some impressive health results...

    Pregnenolone Activates The Glycine Receptor

    This mechanism of pregnenolone is one of the proposed methods through which it enhances neurogenesis, memory, mood and even motor function. Low doses pregnenolon improve sleep quality and are even mildly sedating, which may also be due to the activation of the glycine receptor. Subunit-specific...

    Ritanserin Restores Energetic Function (metabolism) During The Night

    I wanted to post this study as a separate thread as it caught my eye with its obvious relevance to Peat's views on sleep and metabolism. The restorative slow wave sleep (SWS) is highly dependent on metabolism and disturbances in oxidative metabolism immediately manifest in SWS. As such, SWS...
