Cherries naturally have melatonin in them. I think it's pretty neat that it's working for you, susanC!

When I briefly took melatonin, I found the smallest pill size (dose) that I could, and the first night, I took one pill. Major hangover feeling the next day. Next time, took a half. Same thing, not as bad. Worked down to less than 1/4 of a pill. I felt ridiculous cutting the pill up. But...success! I slept sooo well.

I learned my problem is I have a delayed response to falling asleep. So once I do finally fall asleep completely, I need my 8 hours from that point. Maybe it's 30 minutes, maybe it's 1.5 hours...but it takes my mind that much time to "shut down". I think it's because I resemble the Scandinavian part of my ancestry (Danish, I'm a natural blonde). So I think I'm much, much more sensitive to sunlight and artificial light than a lot of people. Our modern life with all of the artificial light just makes me nuts. My hubby is mostly Italian, and he has no problems at all falling asleep and getting less than 8 hours. *sigh*

Getting back to the main topic, I have been on a roll lately with cooking. Been making all kinds of gourmet-ish grain free dinners. My poor hubby who loves his grains (but he's still an O) has been complaining that "I go to bed hungry most nights". Ha! I told him to eat more of what I make.

Yesterday was grain-free for me.  And I had trouble getting to sleep. But did eventually.

Today grain-free until dinner when I had about half a cup of rice penne and pesto mixed in with green peas along with my little lamb loin chop.  Peas/lamb a genoharmonic for me.

Quoted from san j


After looking at that, I would try bean-and-banana panacakes with white types of beans!

In the absence of Stone Root, when mold and grass pollen are at their highest, I'm doing well on Orgeon Grape from the antifungal protocols! And successfully staying grain free that way! Gimme my peas beans sweet potatoes and tapioca.

I.....WILL.....NOT.....eat that bag of oat bran leftover in the kitchen! All my starches in the house are gone.....I burnt my tuber dinner by mistake.....I would rather suffer food martyrdom with cups full of soymilk and more handfuls of frozen veggies than DECEIVE myself into thinking neutral, yummy oat bran will not trigger me!

Get thee behind me, satan-oat-bran
And I will awake with a clear head and happy disposition.
Be ye scattered to the 4 winds tomorrow under the trees for the wildlife to eat.....
