Sleep In The Modern Age
People are not sleeping and as a result they are not healing. The modern world is making it harder than ever to sleep. You might think it's stress making your mind race and your ears ring at night. In a sense it is true, but is more likely a result of the stressors you can't see that are relatively new to our environment.
There are a million reasons why people aren't sleeping but here are some big categories to look at:
-Tech (wifi) and non-native EMF
I was Light -
The modern tech light environment is telling us to wake up because it is largely excitatory blue light. Street lamps, home lighting, business lighting, and even cars now use predominantly LED lighting with stripped frequency for higher efficiency. The cost of higher efficiency is damage to our biology. We are constantly in front of cell phone, computer, and TV screens but don't seem to realize that light is information as far as our biology is concerned. I have done numerous blogs and talks about light so please check those out.
Tech is another major theme of this site. It is so very difficult to get people to understand what frequencies really are, how they affect us, and how the amount of exposure has grown exponentially. All non-native (unnatural) electromagnetic frequencies (nnEMF) have an effect on or natural frequencies. Our natural frequencies are most active as we sleep in order for our cells to repair. The process of frequency (information) that's expressed over a spectrum to our dividing cells requires a lot of power or charge. So much that we can't be moving around during this process...and this is a major reason why we sleep. All "smart" tech or wireless tech, smart meters, cell phones, wifi, and on and on are affecting us in ways we can't imagine. I was just talking with a client who is receptive to the idea that EMF pollution is an issue and she asked about the signals we are exposed to. I told her to go to the wifi section of her computer and see how many signals her computer (receiver) is picking up. Her jaw dropped as it had not occurred to her that she is being bombarded with all those signals 24 hours a day. Don't get overwhelmed, just allow that feeling to motivate change. The worse the tech environment is, the more we have to do right which is why I'm writing this to you now.
Caffeine - I did a blog about coffee about 2 weeks ago. I since ended my love affair with chocolate and am now 100% caffeine free. In my blog post I explained why caffeine in the modern world has a very different effect than it once did, even just 10 years ago. I have shared my caffeine-free experience with several others and it is amazing how many "I only have one cup" or "I just drink black tea" comments I get as an excuse to continue. It takes weeks for the blood flow to return to normal after just one cup of coffee. Go off 100% of caffeine for a month and you'll be amazed at the withdrawal symptoms you experience. No one with sleep or anxiety issues should be on caffeine.
This is a hormone and when you take it you won't make it internally. If you are taking melatonin please consider going off. If you are on caffeine and on melatonin, this will create a snowball effect of problems down the road. Supplementation shouldn't be taken so lightly as it impedes your body's natural ability to produce what is needed in real time.
Although it may help you initially fall asleep, any form of THC keeps you from getting into the deeper states of sleep. It can cause major issues to your REM. If you regularly take THC try going off and start a dream journal. I'm confident you will see what I mean after 3-4 weeks of consistency.
Any form of alcohol (yes, wine too) is bad news for sleep. The effects of this drug do damage on so many levels especially in the modern tech world we live in. I don't think I need to embellish much here as the effects of alcohol are pretty well established and known at this point.
If you want to experience your true sleep potential, get off all these substances 100% for at least a month.
Low charge -
So many things including all forms of prolonged stress and aging reduce the body's charge. The simplest explanation of aging I can think of is reduced charge potential. The best solution for this besides the info above is a 20 gauss Magnetico sleep pad. I have done a number of posts on this as well. They aren't cheap but if people knew the true benefit it has on sleep and overall health, they would find a way. Magnetico offers interest-free financing on 6 payments over 6 months and I can offer you 15% off with my discount code: ROBA. So many of my friends, family, and clients have purchased one and have all been very grateful they did. You can check them out at the link below.
Magnetico Sleep Pad
I had to do a sleep post. I am getting next level sleep in a way I have never known. Here is a list of some of the things I do
I kill the breakers in my bed room at night.
I sleep on a magneticio sleep pad .
I use only candles and salt lamps in the house at night.
I wear blue-tech (blue blocker) glasses when driving or exposed to screens at night.
I am 100% sober from alcohol, THC, caffeine, and any other mind-altering substances.
I use incline bed therapy (raising the head end of the bed up 6")
I keep a lot of indoor plants in my home.
I have no wifi in my home, out Internet is hard-wired.
I turn all devicess and cell phones off or on airplane mode at night.
I am now in the process of putting up a custom bed canopy that will shield me from any EMF signals while I sleep. The pre-made canopies on the market are unfortunately not high quality and I don't vouch for any of them. I got a very specific fabric from Sheilded Healing and had it sewn into a canopy. This is a very unique hack and I am very excited to take my sleep, (which has been really amazing) to the next level. I plan on doing a video and blog post on this as soon asI have it all put together.
Tech does not sleep and if you are wired in it, neither will you. The best way to get healthy is to get truly restorative sleep and unfortunately I think that's a very rare thing these days. Make it a priority. If you need help with your sleep environment or if you know someone who is struggling with sleep, please share this and/or schedule a consult today. I'd love to help.

Solid info on melatonin. I wasn't aware of hormone production and supplementation. Where can I read more on thc and sleep? I'm aware of its cortisol production, but am fairly sure it's specific terpenes. Not fully sure in that department.
