Do You Grind Your Teeth At Night?
Do you have trouble falling asleep? What about nightly leg cramps, or sensitive to poison ivy, cold sores, and itchy skin? I recommend taking a calcium supplement. You could take up to 1200mg a day. I would suggest you might want your vitamin D tested and your thyroid evaluated. Proper amounts of vitamin D and adequate thyroid function are important for proper calcium metabolism. I also found those who go to sleep, but wake in an hour or two may need B vitamins, and if you cry easy, you need B vitamins as well. Recent antibiotic usage might also create the challenge of absorbing B vitamins in your colon.
Lastly, if you consistently wake up in the middle of the night and have a challenge falling back to sleep, the reason might be parasites. Do you grind your teeth at night? If yes, you may want to have a consultation with me. Grinding one’s teeth is common with parasites. Parasites are not the only reason to grind your teeth. Cut back on caffeine if you have a challenge going to sleep, also do not watch TV before bed, and get off the computer. Your brain needs a chance to chill.
