Sleep more

August 9, 2017

I heard a few days ago that LeBron James slept 12 hours per day during the NBA playoffs.

I remember in grad school my advisor slept 10 hours per day.

Last week I heard a doctor talk about sleep flushing away plaque in the brain, which is essential for preventing Alzheimer’s.

Recently I increased my sleep from 8 hours per night to 8 ½ hours per night. That has been very helpful. I think that I will increase to 9 hours per night (or more).

How I overcame brain fog

July 21, 2012

13 months ago I started having brain fog.

It was a great effort to think. Seeing the light on a subject required penetrating a heavy fog in my brain.

I thought perhaps it was due to poor and insufficient sleep. So I got more and better sleep. No help. I sought help from my primary care physician. No help.

Finally, a month ago I decided to try essential oils. I went to the vitamin shop and purchased flaxseed oil, omega 3 oil, and safflower oil.

In one day my brain fog was gone!

It was amazing.

That was a month ago and still no brain fog. I take the oils every day now.

Here’s what I take. I am a big fan of the Solgar brand, so all that I mention are Solgar. (I have no affiliation with Solgar)

– Flaxseed Oil — 1250 mg
– Omega 3 — 700 mg
– Safflower oil — 3 capsules
