Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • Strokes symptoms came and went in a week's time, but never were treated or really diagnosed with anything but pacymeningitis a year ago. Still insomnia, headaches, shoulder and neck pain persist. Wondering if sleep medicine and other medicine intereactions from diabetes. could be a cause. Still looking for treatment

    Are your sleep problems caused by your mattress? Many mattresses since 2000 are made with synthetic chemicals. Example: Memory foam comes from polyurethane which is made from extremely toxic 2,4-Toluene diisocyanate. It was also stuffed in my upper level leather recliner and I coughed a dry hacking cough all night, every night.

    A new mattress from organic materials, latex from trees, wool from sheep wrapped around some of the latex layers, and the whole encased in certified organic cotton is heavenly. You'll be sleeping on a cloud. Check out Organic Mattress Inc. or SavvyRest.

    I rarely use sleeping aids, but if I do, I use Valerian root according to the label on the bottle (buy at health food stores). Instead, I make certain I eat enough calcium rich foods and always add vitamin D3 with my fattiest meals.

    Kale, bok choy, collard greens, broccoli, figs, certified organic tofu (MoriNu), and organic yogurt like Stonyfield Farms can help your body get the calcium it needs for a restful sleep, not to mention to build bones.
