Within fifteen minutes of entering his office with my reports he had me on a new supplement protocol at night: Gaba 1g, L-theanine 400mg, melatonin 10mg. I’ve focused on my circadian rhythms for three years now and have impeccable sleep hygiene, but I was struggling with staying asleep, and I couldn’t get past an hour of deep sleep each night. Within two days of this protocol my deep sleep tripled! I now go to sleep 45 mins earlier, I stay asleep all night, and I’m getting three to four hours of deep sleep a night. I track it using an apple watch and the AutoSleep app. It uses a combination of heart rate drop and movement to determine sleep cycles. It’s been very informative!

He asked a ton of questions, his medical student took furious notes, he told me things about my childhood food issues no one ever should have known...and then put me on a protocol for my HPA axis issues.
Lyssah wrote:Hi Heather, so glad you found someone you think could be helping you. I suspect I have these issues too (HPA axis dysfunction) along with the lack of deep sleep symptoms. Would you mind telling us a little more about what he told you? Also, would you mind terribly if I asked you to send me the name of your practitioner in a private message? I have been looking for someone like this for a long time.
