Well, in an effort to be able to find out what the one thing that is helping me stay asleep is, I did not take a Cortiguard before bed. Instead, I drank a cup of Tulsi tea. I was asleep before 10:30pm, woke up at 2:30am, got up to pee, took some Aspen Bach Flower, lay awake (yet extremely relaxed; thank you Aspen!) until 3:39am, then woke again at 6:05am and finally just got up.

So the tulsi tea might be good in general, but it didn't help me stay asleep. I'll take the Cortiguard before bed tonight, and also a cup of tea (because I already know that the Cortiguard alone doesn't help). I loved the way the Aspen made me relaxed, but I want something to help me sleep!

Since I have been taking cortiguard I have been very tired. Feel tired all the time. Has to be a coincidence because my son and husband are going through the same thing.

This is interesting ......about circadian rhythm and sleep

http://www.talkaboutsleep.com/.....eep-and-activity.htm

Princess Mia, what time of the day are you taking Cortiguard?  Initially, as I was starting to feel
calmer when I began taking it, I thought I felt more tired too....but it was probably my wound up nervous system trying to find a more relaxed "zone" and the shock from "hyper" to calm sort
of felt like tired........It's been a month since I'm taking 3 pills a day and it doesn't make me feel sleepy at all. In fact, I need it before bed so I can fall asleep calmly. If your son and husband
are tired too...perhaps you're all needing to drink more water.  Is it very hot where you are?
You could all have adrenal issues.

Drea.....Your sleep pattern used to be mine.....I would fall asleep, and wake up at 2 or 3 in the
morning and just lie there, wide awake....so I kind of think your cortisol might be high when it
should be low.....It takes awhile for the body to adapt to the adaptogens in Cortiguard....I've
tried Tulsi tea with little effect.....But Holy Basil by New Chapter was far stronger and helped
me sleep through the night when I was having sleep issues.  Have you tried Cortiguard before
bed? Taking 3 pills per day?  Also foods high in tryptophan might help you sleep.  Peanuts
comes to mind.  Turkey too...but better combined with some complex carbs like brown rice.
I always sleep like I'm in a coma when I eat turkey and brown rice together...plus veggies for dinner.

I ate turkey with brown rice and vegetables last night, but still didn't stay asleep. I'll start to be more regular about taking the Cortiguard before bed, once I get my new bottle, that is. I only have two caps left in the current bottle.

Update: last night I had a cup of Tulsi tea and took a cortiguard right before going to sleep. I slept through the night, but didn't get to sleep until after midnight and had to get up before 7:30am. But at least I didn't wake up in the middle of the night!

Drea,
Just wondering if you have alot on your mind, wheels spinning away right before bedtime?????? If so, have you tried keeping a notepad or journal on your nightstand so you can write down whatever is going through your head, appointments or things you don't want to forget????
Do you have a nightly ritual or way to unwind for relaxation before bedtime? Maybe you need one because your job is so physical....in order to stay asleep.

I do (usually) wind down before bed; just not last night -- and last night was the exception to my waking up pattern!

I do have a lot on my mind, but it's not worry, just thinking about problem solving...

I'm going to start doing alternate nostril breathing before I go to sleep and if I wake up in the night. That should help me relax.

Try rubbing your ear lobes between two fingers till they feel warm at the same time while deep breathing.
