Do You Have Regular Trouble Sleeping? First, think whether you are having trouble sleeping at night on an ongoing basis. Those who struggle nightly may want to refrain from utilizing melatonin as a means of getting to sleep and instead, look into other more natural methods of falling asleep such as meditation or deep breathing. While melatonin is going to help you sleep, it is not a supplement designed to be used every day for the long-term.

While it is considered safe, some people may experience unwanted side effects such as…

  • dizziness,
  • stomach cramps, and
  • irritability.

What’s more is you may become reliant on the supplement over time.

How Do Sleep Meds Impact You? Also, consider how sleeping medications impact you. Are they leaving you feeling drowsy during the day? In many people, this is very normal. They take sleeping medication and the next day feel completely out of it.…

Protect Your Hearing

May 1, 2019 Billy Kamerskin 0

These are the conclusions of the World Health Organization which recently analyzed data from various studies conducted in mid- to high-income countries. The conclusion: nearly 50% of 12- to 35-year-olds “are exposed to unsafe levels of sound from the use of personal audio devices, and around 40% are exposed to potentially damaging levels of sound at entertainment venues.”

So how loud is too loud? Noise levels are measured in something called decibels, dB for short, and:

  1. Regular exposure of more than one minute at or above 110 decibels risks permanent hearing loss.
  2. No more than 15 minutes of unprotected exposure at or above 100 decibels is recommended.
  3. Prolonged exposure to any noise at or above 85 decibels can cause gradual hearing loss.

Use this National Institute of Health’s “It’s a Noisy Planet” guide to keep you in the know:

  • 140-165 ~ Firecracker, shotgun firing
  • 140 ~ Jet taking off

Diet for Hypothyroidism

April 30, 2019 Billy Kamerskin 0

Many people do not realize that the thyroid controls many different body processes, as it is not a hormone or part of the body that is talked about often. The truth, however, is that this hormone is responsible for making sure that the body stays in homeostasis at all points in time, which is why getting hypothyroidism is a very difficult thing to deal with.

A Diet: Some people believe that there is a way that you can control the condition using only food. While many doctors disagree, there is much evidence to prove that the best diet for hypothyroidism is one that can help the body to produce more of the thyroid hormone and is one that can help the body to function normally without, or with the help of, medication.

Activity: The best diet for hypothyroidism is nothing without staying physically active. Being active is a very good …

Food and Nutritional Supplements as Sleep Aids

If you are suffering from insomnia, you might want to take in food that contains tryptophan, an agent that undergoes transformation in the brain and becomes serotonin, a substance that helps the body relax and feel sleepy. For food that contains tryptophan to be effective, it needs to be taken on an empty stomach. The most well known food that causes sleepiness is tryptophan-rich turkey. Other food rich in tryptophan include turkey, chicken, milk, cheese, and beans.

Food rich in carbohydrates are also regarded as beneficial for insomniacs. Carbohydrates are said to increase the production of serotonin and melatonin. It is recommended that people who experience insomnia should take a carbohydrate snack of cereal or crackers downed with milk before going to bed.

Tryptophan and Melatonin Supplements

Sleep aids are also available as nutritional supplements. For many years now, people with chronic insomnia …

Sleep, Sleep, and More Sleep:

Sleep is your body’s natural way of regenerating. If you stay up late playing games or checking social media on your phone or tablet, you can disrupt your sleep pattern. Lack of sleep can lead to tiredness and a weakened immune system, making you more prone to getting sick. When the body is not rested it increases the production of cortisol, a stress hormone that can suppress immune function. Try to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep every night, or take an afternoon siesta if you go to sleep late.

Participate in a Cleanse:

When one thing in your body isn’t functioning right, then the rest of your systems and organs can’t function properly. Many health conditions can put strain on the body, so participating in a cleanse can benefit your entire body. By getting rid of built-up toxins in the body, your organs …
