Re: sleep

I have a cheaper version of the ChiliPad that I got on Amazon. It's allegedly more quiet but does not come with a remote control. I don't even notice the noise (like a fan at the lowest setting) and it really does help me sleep. I set it to 71-73F. If I set it below 70, I usually wake up cold. “Che...

Re: sleep

I just ordered the Ooler, a slightly more advanced version of the ChiliPad. I won't get it till mid-August due to backorders, but I'm curious if anyone else has experimented with this?

Re: Best diet for women 4/4’s?

If you are healthy with no MCI, then your low fat vegan diet is great. If you do have MCI, then a mostly vegan keto may be t...

Re: animal protein

JgilberAZ,

Several routes can likely lead to the same effect of insulin resistance. Moi, I am on a whole foods plant based diet (high carb, low fat) and my fasting insulin is 2.8. I doubt anyone out there with some knowledge of nutrition believes that vegetable oils are good for us.

Re: Sleep

This is a really interesting episode of the Broken Brain Podcast with sleep medicine dentist Dr. Mark Burhenne. Circular, thank you so much for posting this talk. I listened to it yesterday and it is very relevant for me. I have a scalloped tongue (I learned from a dentist last week) and tongue tie...
