  1. I have orange juice from concentrate... I have never been tested for an ulcer...

    It may just be that the acids are annoying an already inflamed gut, maybe try cutting them out and reintroducing them later on when things have settled down for you.

    Avoid everything that has citric acid in it, will be hard as its one of the most common food additives.

  2. I used to get really bad night sweats. At one point I was convinced I had lukemia because I did a frantic internet search and that's what came up. :blink: Now, I just get hot esp. in the mornings when I am getting ready for work (to the point that I'll stand outside while letting the dog out when it's 5 degrees and STILL be hot) but I don't have the night sweats anymore.

    I get hot to the point of prickling on my scalp around 8 every night, even if I am working, I sweat profusely till around midnight and then I am just plain hot for the rest of the night.

    I sleep with the Air con and a ceiling fan, no bedclothes, and sometimes I am still uncomfortable.

    I am post menopausal, so its not that.

    I am on thyroid meds, looking for an alternative at the moment.

  3. Part of the reason they suggest not taking them daily is because any substance you take like that can be psychologically addictive. I don't recall it having many other interactions, but you might want to check google just to be sure. Additionally, making a regular bedtime routine, if you don't already have one, may help as well.

    Valerian has some nasty side effects if taken over a longperiod of time in reasonable doses.

    As with anything, you should only take it when you absolutely have to, limit it to when you are absolutely exhausted.

    Any sleep problem should be checked out by a professional person.


  4. Bruxism is what it is called.

    There is only really three treatments for this, a Dental device, Stress Management, and perhaps Bio feedback therapy.

    Some anti depressants cause Bruxism, there may be an element of gastro oesophageal reflux involved, and some misalignments of the teeth may also impact on this.

    Its a Sleep Disorder which is hard to treat.

    Most of the over counter dental devices are inadequate, and you need to have a special one made.

    I would also look at googling Biofeedback therapy in your area.

    Good Luck !!!

  5. yeah! i would love for those dreams to go away! they are so powerful and real feeling and only my husband as my witness knew how bad it was - every one else thought i was just having normal nightmares. NOT!


    There are quite a few sleep disorders, one of them is REM sleep disorder which can cause this behaviour.

    There are ways of beating this.

    You need a referral to a Sleep Disorder Centre, where they will monitor you overnight and video any behaviours. Medication helps this.

    Good luck !!

  6. I feel like you....I went on this forum to see what others had to say about fatigue. I consistently get 8 hours a night but I literally can't keep my eyes open during the day. I've lost all my energy and my poor daughter is beginning to think I'm lazy. You all have motivated me to call my doctor - I'm going to do it today....plus my md told me to take freeda's prenatal vitamins & calcium supplements (not trying to get pregnant) and I haven't taken them in a while. I'm sending my husband to the store to get them and taking them immediately.

    These are thoroughly sensible responses.

    I work as a Sleep technologist, I have sleep apnoea, and use CPAP (without it I am hopeless), and a sleep study is a must if you are sleeping more than 8-9 hours per day.

    Good luck !!

  7. I just had to share this weblink with everyone who have experienced these vast array of heath problems and how it relates to Candida. I had systemic candida for a very long time and I thought it was dealt with. Now I realise the fungus may still hide inside my organs (heart or brain) doing its destruction...

    It is darn scary! :o:( This is a must read



    Also note that both articles metion that gluten grains feed candida. I kind of get the bizarre idea that Candida causes leaky gut and gluten intolerance.

    I have been using a supplement for some time now and it made a huge difference.

    Its called Threelac, I buy it online here in Australia, but I dont know where you would get it in your home country.

    Basically its live cultures.
