Insomnia and Fatigue – Fatigue and Insomnia – A vicious cycle …

Insomnia and Fatigue … While updating a couple pages here today I was reminded of my old enemies, insomnia and fatigue. See I haven’t had a problem with either in quite sometime – that’s why I had to be reminded. They used to rock and rule my life.

Are you caught up in this vicious cycle of can’t sleep well at night & don’t want to get up in the morn? This link may be your first step to recovery. It starts with the letter M …

Constipation and Fatigue. What’s the connection?

Ninety-five percent of adults have bowel movements between three and 21 times per week, and this would be considered normal. The most common pattern is one bowel movement a day, but this pattern is seen in less than 50% of people. Moreover, most people are irregular and do not have bowel movements every day or the same number of bowel movements each day.”


Many years ago I was helping a teen-age boy clear up a terrible case of acne. Tried this, tried that, tried everything. Finally I ended up with him at a health food store. The manager took an interest is us and, to make a long story short, it turned out that this young man was having a bowl movement every 3 or 4 days! (Contrary to the above stat “normal” is having a bowel movement after each meal.)

Anyway, he was given herbs and immediately his body starting working properly. Not only did the acne clear up, so did his migraine headaches. This was a huge “ah ha” for me.

What does constipation have to do with fatigue?

Well … constipation, just like fatigue, is a sign that your body isn’t functioning properly. It is wake up call vs. “the way it is.”

Constipation feeds fatigue, literally. Because toxins aren’t being eliminated properly, they are in fact building up and demanding more of your body’s energy to process and store. Yes, your body is providing rent free storage space to a bunch of crap.

Today, just do a couple things to get moving in a healthier direction. (Don’t go nuts. It took time to get blocked up and it takes time to turn it around. You are probably not 12 years old, right?)

1. Add more fiber. Add a serving of brown rice at dinner. How about the Fatigue Buster breakfast tomorrow?

2. Breathe Out. Breathe In. Breath. It is not just our bodies that get backed up. It is our thinking and our feeling.

3. Suppliment your diet. Good quality and the right kind of vitamins and minerals definitely help. Here’s what works for me (Psst. My minerals include lots of Magnessium which is essential for releasing toxins and sleeping well at night. )

An Ancient Chinese Proverb tells us, “If we do not change our direction, we are likely to end up where we are headed.” If you are tired of feeling tired all the time, perhaps it’s time for a new direction.

Magnesium & Insomnia & Fatigue — Duh! What was I thinking?

Today while doing some additional research on Insomnia & Fatigue I stumbled upon my old friend, Magnesium.

For the past year or so I’ve taken 400-800 mg each night before going to sleep and have, by and large, slept quite well.

Ran out of it about a week ago which corresponds with this recent bout of eyes wide open.

Here is some of the interesting trivia about Magnesium I learned today …

1. Most women are deficient in Magnesium due to diets high in processed foods, purified drinking water, excessive alcohol, caffeine and exercise, HRT and the Pill.

2. Magnesium levels drop at night leading to poor REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep cycles and unrefreshed sleep. Headaches, blurred vision, mouth ulcers, fatigue and anxiety are also early signs of depletion.

3. In addition to sleeping tight, other conditions that may benefit from MG suppliments include: asthma, kidney stones, gastric disturbances and pms.

4. Magnesium deficiency is often misdiagnosed because it does not show up in blood tests – only 1% of the body’s magnesium is stored in the blood.

5. Men need it too. It helped my husband go from toss and turn to sleeping like a babe. Of course, since I was sound asleep you might wonder how I knew … he told me and showed me by not being crankkkkky and depressed.

WAIT! There’s more …

There are many brands and types of Magnesium. For best absorption you need to order:

* Capsules vs. tablets
* Magnesium citrate vs. oxide or carbonate

And, take it with food whenever possible. Often at night I’ll have a cup of wheat bran cereal, TBLS of Wheat Germ (both are excellent sources of Mg.) and a splash of milk or a milk subsitute. By the way … don’t be worring about gaining weight – the better you sleep, the more you lose.
