Are you a restless sleeper?
Always feel exhausted?
Is your sleep interrupted by snoring?
If so, this podcast interview is for YOU!
Join Kristy Jo as her guest, Carl Lanore, takes us on a journey to better understand sleep. Over 20 years ago, Carl had a heart problem and was over 300 pounds. One of the key parts of his regaining health was focusing on improving his sleep.
We're not supposed to snore. This means your airway is obstructed which raises cortisol as your body receives a stress signal. If you are snoring, Carl says you must get it addressed.
This could be due to:
1. Gut problems (view Kristy Jo's program to help with this--www.PowerFoodsDetox.com--complete 1-3x)
2. Dairy Sensitivity and Nasal Obstruction (sinus infection)
Carl has taken Melatonin for over 20 years. Melatonin is the only antioxidant that crosses the blood-brain barrier. It is not a sleep aid directly, but indirectly. How can you preserve your own melatonin?
1. Wear Blue Blockers in the final few hours of the day (3 hours before going to sleep).
2. Take 600 mcg/night 1/2 hour before going to sleep. Only take this if you sleep between 7-9 hours each night.
"If you don't sleep well, you will die sooner."
"If you don't sleep well, you will develop disease."
Carl advocates that in order to improve sleep, it must be tracked. He says sleep is like the ocean where you can stand and look out at it and think it's beautiful, but there is so much beneath the surface that you can't see.
Do you need to eat in the middle of the night?
You're waking up because your blood sugar is dropping dramatically. This can mean your insulin sensitivity is off and you're on the track to Diabetes.
If you're someone like this, go buy some Glycine. Take 3-5 grams before bedtime. It's the most glucogenic amino acid and easily becomes glucose on demand. This will help keep your blood sugar level.
