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

Thank you for such a thorough homeopathic treatment.

My eyes feel much better already.

I've stopped having that irritating feeling of something always being in my eye.

I notice I'm only blinking or tearing up like how a normal person would.

The ophthamologist had recommended surgery last year, but a few months after your homeopathic remedy, he told me it's no longer necessary.

Christopher, Victoria (Metchosin), BC

My jaw had been frozen shut by a bony fusion, and nerve damage from many destructive surgeries.

I had such severe and destructive scar tissue in my mouth.

Andy's homeopathic remedy, neuro-emotional work, and especially the Bowen therapy helped to unlock my jaw and break up this scar tissue.

My nerve pain is also less intense than it's been in years, and is still getting better with every treatment.

Brent G, Burnaby (Whalley, North Surrey), 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

I had given up on the conventional medical doctors, and was going crazy trying to find something to cure this debilitating bladder pain.

I was pretty resistant to Dr. Andy's homeopathic treatment and all neuroemotional techniques - it's pretty strange.

But I do feel much better now, so I know that it did something good.

And not just with my cystitis ... my sleep and energy have improved too.

Diane W, Surrey (North Surrey / Bolivar Heights), BC
