Sleep Disturbance 3 – Calcium

If you tried taking Chlorella before bed time and during the night to counteract sleep disturbance and you are still not sleeping well your sleep disturbance may spring from other causes. Here are some other things to try for insomnia. I suggest trying them one at a time so you will know which one helps you.

Try taking calcium at night just before bedtime (if you need to take calcium supplementation) since it can have a calming effect on your system.

Make sure your sleeping room is totally dark. Any light at all can disrupt the pineal gland and melatonin rhythm. Melatonin levels rise at night to induce sleep. Light activates the pineal to decrease melatonin production, a good thing if it’s morning and you’re ready to get up, but if it’s the middle of the night, not such a good thing.

So remove or turn off all of the electronic devices with led lights in your bedroom. Turn off night lights and televisions. I don’t even turn on the lights to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. Instead I use a small flashlight that produces a small amount of light if I need it. Use light block out drapes in your bedroom.

Besides led lights electrical appliances create an electromagnetic field that can be stressful to the electromagnetics of your body. If your body has to work hard to deal with those foreign electromagnetic frequencies, you may not sleep well nor regenerate your tissues well. Therefore, keep all electronics far away from your bed including clock radios, alarm clocks, electric phones and anything else electric that’s plugged in. That list includes electric blankets. If you must, turn the electric blanket on to warm the bed, then turn it off and unplug it.

Avoid exercising within a few hour of bedtime. Exercising late in the evening may keep you too stimulated to go to sleep. On the other hand, definitely exercise daily earlier in the day. Something about regular, good exercise promotes good sleep and counteract insomnia.

Read something soothing or inspiring once you get in bed. Good thoughts may wash away the stresses of the day and let your brain relax. If that doesn’t work, then read something boring. A technical, dry medical journal can put me to sleep right away. But best of all, read your Bible and pray. Give God the cares of the day and relax in His loving arms.

Let me know what works for you.

Food allergies, inhalant allergies and hormonal disruption can also cause sleep disturbance. Each of those topics need some in depth explanation, so we will be addressing those issues in future Be Wise articles.

In the mean time, rest well.
