Don’t Lose Sleep When Texting In Bed!

So you want to use your computer or phone before (or in!) bed - but don’t want your sleep to suffer?

Enter f.lux Redshift!

There’s a strong inverse correlation between nighttime use of computing devices & sleep quality.

You see, when your eyes receive blue, purple, or white light, your brain is triggered to wake up.

Why?

The sky is blue.

So it must be daytime.

And you should wake up.

Or so your brain thinks.

Whenever you’re seeing blue, your pineal gland stops releasing melatonin.

As previously blogged, melatonin is a hormone that promotes sleep.

And the colour palates of modern computer displays definitely don’t skimp on blue, purple, and white!

Due to the aforementioned effects on melatonin release, these colours – and the screens displaying them - make you feel stimulated, invigorated, and awake!

Which is great … when you want to work.

Not quite so wonderful when you’re prepping for bed.

Fortunately, warmer tones don’t have the same stimulatory effect.

Colours like green, yellow, orange, and especially red are soothing & sleep-promoting.

That’s where f.lux or Redshift come in.

Either program adjusts your display to the time of day.

Warm, relaxing, sleep-promoting tones at night.

Bright, stimulatory, invigorating ones during the day.

By the way, if you or your child uses a night light, the same principles apply.

So avoid blue, purple, & white.

Fortunately, at this time of year, that shouldn't be all that difficult!

And, come to think of it ...

... due to my (ahem) proclivity for purple …

... you’re probably better off avoiding this website any time after dusk as well!

(... sigh ... another terrible business model ... ;) )

Naturopathic Medicine & Homeopathy Testimonials

Distance had been created between myself and my wife - in our sex life and our marriage in general - when I came to see Dr. Somody. The naturopathic counselling and homeopathic remedy quickly helped me to overcome my ejaculatory control issues. and my marriage and sex life are doing good now.

Brian C., Port Coquitlam, BC

The cancer had made me so frustrated and slowed down.

Time was my enemy, and I had to get better.

Andy's homeopathic remedy, biofeedback and neuroemotional treatments helped my mood and bowels almost immediately.

The cancer didn't go away overnight, but began to recede gradually.

Even during this time though I could tell I was getting better.

I had more energy and motivation than I had had in 20 years.

So when the doctors told me the cancer had gone into partial remission, I wasn't surprised.

Colin Wood, Delta (Ladner), BC

I have seen a huge shift in myself - mentally, physically and emotionally.

It's awesome! 

Things are going really great and most importantly I am connecting on all these different levels. 

Yesterday, I was jumping on my bed with my kids and I wasn't having those crazy heart palpitations, I wasn't even out of breath, I am not cold...I could go on and on...thank you.

Tamar Conner, Kentville, Nova Scotia

I just wanted to send you a big huge thank you!!

That cream is wonderful!

i put it on last night and this morning and my fingers feel great!

I have given my sister some of the cream that you gave me for my nephew and we think that it is helping and in fact their naturopath wants them to use it exclusively!

Julie V., North Vancouver (Delbrook), BC

Years ago, I slipped in my bathroom, fell and fractured my tailbone.

I think it got worse after childbirth too.

Then I injured my shoulder and got whiplash from a car accident, and hurt my hip running.

The combination of Andy's homeopathic remedy, neuroemotional releases, and Bowen therapy helped my whole body feel better.

Now I don't get pain any more when I walk, run, or drive.

And I don't seem to get so easily injured either.

Diane B, Richmond (Steveston), BC

A couple of days after Dr Somodys homeopathic remedy and Bowen treatment, my breast got hot and some smelly, pussy discharge came out of the nipple!

I felt a lot more energized after this.

And then, after a few weeks, the doctors told me that the tumor had started to shrink!

Even my skin and gut are doing better.

I'm feeling optimistic about the future for the first time in months!

Ilona, Surrey (Newton / Fleetwood), BC

My husband and I both had fertility difficulties for years before meeting Dr. Somody. The few times we managed to conceive, we'd lose the pregnancy. But then three weeks after Dr. Somody's homeopathic treatment, I became pregnant again, and we now have a beautiful baby boy!

G.A., Coquitlam, BC

The homeopathic remedy Dr. Andy gave me really helped my focus and motivation, and my acne, dandruff and dermatitis have really improved under the naturopathic treatment.
My blood pressure is also a lot better since taking the homeopathic remedy.

Chris Y., Vancouver (Kerrisdale), BC

We were all very scared for my daughter before we took her to see Dr Andy.

She's so sensitive, she can be really loving and warm.

But she would also feel completely abandoned, ashamed and hurt from even small things.

It had gotten so bad that she had started cutting, drinking, using drugs to cope.

Dr Andy's homeopathy remedy seemed to make something shift in her.

I think the mental-emotional releases and perhaps the bowen therapy also helped.

It was hard to see the changes day-by-day at first, but the difference between the way she is now and how she was a few months ago is obvious to all of us.

She's still as loving and kind as ever, but the negative emotions don't affect her so much.

And the best part is that she hasn't tried to hurt herself in months and her moods seem much more stable overall.

B.E., Delta (Ladner), BC

I have been so fortunate to be one of Dr. Somody's patients and have to say that he is one of the most competent people I know.

I had painful stiffness, swelling, and arthritic pain in my hand joints.

And then it changed, and went to my tendons.

I would get throbbing pain in my fingers at night, I couldn't bend my fingers or work properly.

I also would get these little knobs or growths on the joints.

The joints would get really inflammed and red.

Some doctors once told me it was gout or a type of arthritis related to psoriasis.

I also had psoriasis that caused painful cracking and flaking skin on my hands.

Dr. Somody's homeopathic remedy and other naturopathic approaches made all these much better.

For instance after the first few days I could already notice the joints were less swollen and painful.

After a couple of months the joints, skin and tendons were at least 50% better.

They just kept getting better over the next few months and other than a rare flare-up I don't have these things any more.

I haven't had to see Dr. Somody or any other doctor again in years and I consider myself cured.

If it wasn't for him I would probably still be suffering from these problems or even unable to work.

 

Alex, North Vancouver, BC
