Hi Storm

There are two things that come to mind when I hear someone cannot sleep for more than a few hours at a time.

Sleep Apnea or Magnesium deficiency or both!

As for magnesium:

55% of Americans are deficient in magnesium and 20% are dangerously low. Not being able to sleep or stay asleep are common symptoms for deficiency.

Google... magnesium deficiency

An easy way to find out if your sleep patterns are due to low magnesium... I recommend a product called ‘CALM’ It’s a drink you fix yourself just before going to bed. I won’t be without it! Here is a link giving more info on it.

The drink taste great (fizzy and very refreshing) Orange or lemon flavor... I like both. Before I started taking it I wasn’t getting more than a few hours of sleep a night.

Sleep Apnea:

If you suspect Sleep A, your Dr. can order a sleep test. You don’t have to be born with signs of it. Sleep apnea can show itself at any time.

All the best to you... I know what hell lack of sleep can be. Hang in there girl, there is help out there Wink

This is when my body is not even in a state to be able to assimilate foods properly anymore.

And also, my experience is that, "conventional" doctors actually have told me in my face, that they are not familiar with, nor trained to recognize dysbiosis (along with other things such as chiropractors and adrenal fatigue) Rolling Eyes

So maybe that is why you haven't heard much about it. I consider myself an analytical person (with a Computer Science background) and this idea of dybiosis makes a lot of sense to me, for what I am dealing with. I can be skeptical too, and am open to that I can be wrong too, if I gain more insight.

The typical American MD is not trained to apply nutritional principals. I do 8 sprays of magnesium a day and often use the Calm product in the evening before bed. Mg is an important mineral and one that is sorely deficient among many in this country. It is less and less in the foods we eat - due to soil depletion etc. Bella mentioned prefering foods for acquiring but in the case of magnesium, supplement is likly advisable for most of us. Magnesium levels in typical foods known for magnesium may not get close to a typical level of many years ago.
