Well. it was another hot night, so I took Chloe's advice and took a Cortiguard before bed, and slept like a baby. Nice!

I just got a bottle of Cortiguard last week and have been taking it daily.  I took one at night a few days ago but I don't really know if it helped.

I do seem to be a bit more "in the moment" and not misuse my energy levels.  I tend to push on through especially when I don't really want to do something I have to get done.  

Not sure if this is an A thing but like others said the heat affects me very adversely.  Just seems to drain all energy.

I'm the same way with the heat; it is an energy drainer. I'm good up until 88 degrees or so, then I suddenly don't want to do (or eat) anything. At least here in NM, it's a dry heat. I lived for 3 months in the summer in CT when I was younger, and that was miserable!

As far as taking Cortiguard on a daily basis.....I'm rather a newbie with this supplement but I do
notice if I miss even one dose.  Lots of heat stress right now...I just feel calmer when I take my
regular dose on time.

I'm always remembering that Dr. D said that high cortisol mimics insulin....so I don't want my
blood sugar going up if I feel stressed. High insulin causes the body to store fat...  And BT A is likely to have high cortisol from stress. So the connection is that lowering cortisol is likely to help with
weight control if you're blood type A or B. (the two blood groups that Cortiguard was designed for)

I too do best if I take supps on a regular basis.  I take a lot of DPN products....which I really
love!

I am the same with the heat. My son is an O and the heat does not go over too well with him either. My husband loves it.

I love the product. It is working for me now. You all know about my phobia to cars. I started to feel very anxious yesterday morning because I was getting a lift with someone I have never driven with before. I took my cortiguard and it settled me down. I was fine in the car.

Update on Cortiguard....I am taking 3 pills.  Am still waking up anxious....and gotta just say that
sometimes As just have to meditate....do some de-stressing exercise like yoga....I sleep well
but waking up in panic mode is a crazy feeling.  I immediately swallow one Cortiguard, spray
my body with magnesium oil....go back to the bed and meditate for 30 minutes...and then I get
up just fine and feel much calmer.  I am incorporating this morning ritual of meditating because
it's something I think helps me start my day in a calmer place.

I take a second pill around 2 pm....a few hours after lunch...I keep playing with that second pill....I want to wait
until I need it....but sometimes it's closer to 5 pm....before dinner....Not quite dealing with anxiety at 5...maybe hunger, low blood sugar....but for the past two days I took that second pill at 5 pm and felt it was the perfect time.

Last pill is right before bed....I sleep well....but still, many mornings wake up feeling very anxious.
It's bizarre....it's not every day.....

Cortiguard is definitely helping....I'm not cured of anxiety...I'm just managing it better.

I have to agree with your statement about it being an A thing.  Sleeping well seems to be a challenge lately.  

I've been taking two calcium/magnesium tabs with a valerian capsule at night and sometimes it works like a charm but ...........

I may substitute a Cortiguard at night  - I'm only taking one in the AM.

So far it seems to be a testament to helping with the ZZZZZs.

I take one cortiguard in the morning...away from food..just like quercetin.
I guess I've never needed more than that or just didn't think to take one if I did!
I have been taking it for over one year.
I believe A's that get stressed easily ( probably most of us! ) could really benefit from cortiguard and yoga breathing. Both have made a huge difference for me.

Joy,
I take my polycal at night with my vitamin D and I know it helps me sleep!

Cajun,

What's polycal?  It sounds like a supplement that has calcium in it?  How much Vit. D do you take also?

Thanks.  I guess we're all looking for the right formula especially at night.

Oh, I see.  Thanks Chloe.

I'll stick with the calcium/magnesium tabs which I just ran out of today.

I just popped a cortisol a little while ago so we'll see how I sleep tonight.

Sorry guys! Thanks, Chloe!

Yes, I meant phytocal........
I take 2000 IU of vitamin D3 along with my phytocal(calcium) for maximum absorption. ( before bedtime )

Each morning I take the NAP basic pack for A's ( polyvite/polyflora/deflect),
proberry, helix, then about 2 hours after breakfast cortiguard and quercetin.

I'm almost out of Cortiguard. I'm trying to decide whether to reorder it, or Traquility Base. Chloe, I read your post about it at the beginning of this thread...I've been taking one Cortiguard first thing in the morning for several months, and last night took one before bed...but am still waking up at 2 am, then 4 or 5 am...I'm looking for help for staying asleep. I don't have any issues with falling asleep to begin with (my job is hard and I'm so tired at the end of my day).

I went ahead and reordered the Cortiguard. I know it works for me, maybe not for the staying asleep part, but for overall stress...

Yesterday I tried two Cortiguard.....Nope....not enough....I took one in the AM and another before bed... and felt that I woke up even more anxious than when I was taking 3 pills.  So back to 3 pills per day until I feel I've got anxiety under control.

As for waking up in the middle of the night....one methyl B12 taken with breakfast and another with dinner has helped to balance my circadian rhythm to where I'm not waking up in the middle of the night anymore.
I used to sometimes wake up around 3 am, check the clock, maybe go to the bathroom, but if
it randomly happens now, I can fall right back asleep.  I used to wake up way too early and not be able to get back to sleep at all...  I don't think Cortiguard by itself would normalize my sleep pattern.  I really felt the methyl B12 was responsible for that.  Cortiguard manages my anxiety level....I find I breathe normally hours after I take it.........don't get upset over small things during the day....and 3 pills makes me feel pretty balanced.  As with stress are really a mess!

Chloe, is the methyl B12 something you bought at a hfs or from NAP? (Please say hfs, because I've already placed my NAP order!)...

I was at the local hfs today and picked up a bottle of Bach Flower remedy called Aspen. I'll report if that helps me stay asleep...

Hmmm. I was reading on another thread that Holy Basil helps regulate cortisol. I was drinking a cup before bed for a while, then stopped. I wonder if there is a correlation between sleeping well and the tea . I'll have a cup tonight to test the theory...

I've tried several of the Bach Flower remedies for stress and tension - Agrimony, Star of Bethlehem,
White Chestnut, and I just received an order which included Impatiens.  I'm going to try a few drops of that tonight.

I'd be interested to know how the Holy Basil tea works for you?  

Maybe A stands for aaaargh!!!!  We're a group it seems that is looking for that solid sleep forumula.

I'll take six hours of that every night.

Sorry, but it's Dr. D's methyl B 12 with folic acid.  But I still think Cortiguard will lower your cortisol... and hopefully keep it lower when you're trying to sleep through the night.  Try taking Cortiguard every night before bed for awhile....and make sure you eat dinner at a reasonable
time....a balanced dinner...I used to wake up after a few hours of sleep when my blood sugar
wasn't staying stable.

http://www.4yourtype.com/prodinfo.asp?number=NP008

I've become a great sleeper....and for my age, that's saying a lot....because lots of people I know,
including my husband are not sleeping through the night.

In fact, my third Cortiguard is right before bed. I found that one first thing in the morning,
one right before dinner and one right before bed keeps me feeling like a much calmer person.
