-and some supplements-.
Background: I've slept terribly since I was a baby. I went to all kinds of doctors, got two surgeries but nothing seemed to help. People didn't believe me and I was starting to doubt myself.
I went to a very expensive sleep study that confirmed what I already knew. I was too restless all night and got very little deep sleep. Still, no diagnosis.
January to February I woke like our friend Bugs Bunny here.
I got an Oüra ring to measure tendencies and find consistent improvements -or damages- to my sleep quality
and provide me with real data.
Turns out It wasn't "in my head". Most nights I had TWO OR THREE minutes of Deep Sleep. 40 minutes If I was lucky.
I had to sleep almost NINE HOURS to get SIX of poor quality. No wonder I was taking coffee all day.
Then I determined to fix it. Here's what worked for me:
- Fasoracetam 40 - 80 mg per day.
- Noopept: It increased the vividness of my dreams and my REM time.
- Cerebrolysin: Hands down the best Nootropic in my book. *Optional
- CBD oil 10-30 mg. This is the one seemed to make a HUGE difference. From the very first night my sleep jumped to n hour!
- Magnesium. Every night.
Finally I get deep sleep consistently. As you can see from the "after" screenshots I finally got more quality out of less sleep time.
Sometimes I don't feel as refreshed as Oüra says BUT I do notice the difference 10-15 minutes after waking up, and my energy is high all day long.
