I’ve always been a night person. For years I worked as a waitress or bartender basically working all hours (some times grave and etc) For the last 2.5 years I’ve been going to bed and waking up pretty consistently, but I still have trouble.
For five years I worked from home and for a majority of that time, I slept when I was tired and ate when I was hungry (small meals) and I found that usually I slept the best between 5am and 1pm. Obviously that sleep schedule doesn’t work well with the outside world. I’m doing a lot better. Usually in bed by 11pm and asleep by 12am, but I feel like that is mostly due to taking the melatonin and Vitamin D about 30 minutes to an hour before I fall asleep.
It was actually my Gynecologist that tested me and found that I had the Adrenal Fatigue. I think she found it by blood testing me. It’s been at least a year since I was diagnosed with that and I’m off the natural Adrenal pills she had prescribed, but still take the Vitamin D at night. She also ultimately found that I had Candida in my stomach. She had me submit a 3 day stool sample. This was also about a year ago, and I’ve been trying to get rid of the candida ever since. My biggest issues are with the bloating and stomach pain. At one point I was so bloated or swollen it looked as though I were pregnant. I work out pretty hard core a few times a week, and stay pretty active in my daily life. It was so frustrating doing all the work and still not seeing any results. It wasn’t until I started the cleanse… Within in a week I had lost 15 lbs and besides the die off symptoms (I hope that’s what they are at least) I do feel better. If nothing else my body looks better.
I’ve had about 4 colonics, but now I’m having a lot of constipation. I’ve read the examples given for how to treat it, so I’m going to be trying some of those. I’ve also canceled my colonic for this week. See if I can get myself back on track regularly.
