I think I saw that on Dr. Oz. He recomended it for sleeping instead of sleeping Rx. I've never tried it.
Hmmm.

I can hardly function at all if I take ashwagandha during the day. It makes me relax all right! I can't remember it helping me sleep at night, though. Strange.

To recount:
"Okay, past that, I am 51 years old, white and have a long long history of dieting.  I did Atkins and gained 8 pounds.  I gained weight in the delivery room,,,, twice!  The only diet that ever really worked for me was starvation. I quit smoking 5 years ago and all hell broke loose.  I gained the 40 pounds in under 9 months.  I had a lot of loss during this time, my Mother, my Father in law, my brother, sister in law, 2 nephews and a grand daughter. The weight came on hard and heavy."
If she is swamped with "worry" it doesn't seem to be coming through in this post. Calling severe trauma a simple "worry" seems somewhat "off" to me.

I just started taking ashwaganda again (the one that Gaia manufactures) and it really seems to be helping me.

Quoted from grey rabbit
I am an A that used to worry and stress out over things but I learned to stop. I've learned to remind myself that worry never made anything better. I've also learned to hear what my inner voice is telling me and asking myself if it's true.


Yes, that's my experience too and I've rather trained myself to make mental choices...picking and
choosing what's most logical....also asking myself IF the worse case scenario happened, then what?
When I realize most of my worries are about my fear being projected into the future and not about me living in this moment, I start to see where I have faulty thinking.  I start to see where worrisome
thoughts come from.....and at that point, I actually CHOOSE to be living in the now....when everything
IS just fine. I remember thinking when they predicted this last storm that we could get high winds.
Immediately I conjured up high winds and trees blowing so hard that one actually fell on the roof,
and that a humongous tree went through the kitchen....tearing up the whole room.  I imagined myself actually being in the kitchen when it happened....looking around in an apocalyptic environment....everything decimated and and us freezing to death.  When I realized it was my insanely wild imagination going through this drama, I said to myself "STOP, change these thoughts".....and suddenly I was taken back to realizing this was simply a weather report I was
reacting to and not a reality of the present moment at all!

Maybe we need to start a separate thread about worry!

I'm a worrier too - especially when I can't sleep in the middle of the night.  I've gotten better too but I still tend to see "the possibilities."

MF why not give it a try not all A's have will have the same effect

It has so many benefits that it is a shame not to take advantage of it.


Really good for us A's--- take it at night if it makes you sleepy.

It is in Attentia too.

Chloe, you have described me a few years ago!  I too have to stop and take a reality check, I have a very vivid imagination & would tend toward "worst case scenario" preparation which I used to think would help me at some stage be ready for anything... however i was so stressed out preparing for the worst all the time & "the worst" rarely, if ever, happened.
Yoga helped me practice being in the present, meditation is a must for me!  I tell myself, "right now i am ok, i am calm and safe". that does the trick most times
Stress is an A's enemy on every level.

Hello All.
I just wanted to give a wee bit of an update.

In the last week after eliminating wine, beer and over doses of fruit juice, here is what has happened.

I have lost 3 pounds.  Now this may not seem like a lot but it is, it really is.
I bought a rebounder and use it every day that I am not working (manual job).
I am grounding/ earthing with a home made unit that lives under my feet while I am at the computer.  I thought it might be better than adding any more pills.  It makes me tingle, kind of cool.
AND I am eating turkey.  Gawd how I missed turkey.  It kind of took me off guard when an organic bird cost $135.00.  But we deboned it and cooked the whole thing and now have enough turkey to last 6 months.

Question......  Can we A's have saki and wasabi?  We have been invited out to a new sushi bar and would like to try both.

There are some here that are thinking I maybe still reeling from the large losses I have had.  Well, yes, but I know enough to cry when I have to and that really does help.  Thank you for your concern, I really do appreciate it and all of you.


Going to try Taichi with my husband this upcoming weekend.  This will be interesting.  And for the first time in 6 years, we are planning on going to the Coast to have a bit of a vacation.  I can not wait to dip my feet into ocean water.

You are taking some very good steps - keep up the good work!  

I thought you might enjoy browsing this long thread on the benefits of rebounding.

Kudos for making those changes that you mentioned.  Self-motivation will take you to the next step.

I took Tai-Chi many years ago.  It was kind of rigorous but let me just say I had a toned body. And I loved it (although probably didn't appreciate enough at the time).  Never mind.  That and the rebounder will help with balance and do "your computer (my word for brain)" alot of good.  

I was invited into the Black Belt Club but declined.

Enjoy your changes.

What a wonderful update!

For wasabi, I'd follow the recommendations for horseradish.  http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?203 Sake is considered a "distilled liquor" (avoid for As) but it's also brewed from rice, which is compliant.

If you're overall eating well, you can probably afford the occasional "imperfect food choices" in a social setting. One or two cups of sake is a reasonable "cheat" but I'd avoid "getting drunk."
