Sleep is one of the most critical factors determining health, weight, mood and longevity. Statistically, satisfying sleep of 7 to 8 hours has consistently been the essential requirement. In general, this requires a regular pattern of going to bed and getting up within a narrow time range. Things that interfere with sleep include:
  • Eating or drinking alcohol within 3 hours of bedtime
  • Vigorous exercise in the evening
  • Having any light in the room other than red
  • Having any electronic gadget within 3 feet of head
  • Noise
  • Being unable to shut off the mind—anxiety or depression
  • Caffeine within 4 or more hours of sleep
  • Diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and cancer are all linked to long term inadequate sleep.
Many prescription drugs interfere with sleep and the prescription drugs for sleep all create far more problems than help. Cranial electrical stimulation in the morning often helps sleep at night. Photostimulation with the Shealy RelaxMate is one of the best assistants for sleep. Timed release melatonin, building up slowly to as much as 10 mg is one of the best assistants. Kava Kava, Tryptophan and Taurine may help.
