    Yes the reality its that sometimes sleep studies are not useful... But worth a try. I used to wake up 3-4 times too but now I am back to just two (excluding the final one). It could be sleeping earthed. Yesterday I bought a flower essence product called Sleep from Siddatech, if it work wonders I will tell you guys :rofl: Me trying flower essences, who would have said. Maybe doing methylation would be better (some people got normal sleep from it) but cannot do that right now.

    Before I started methylation, it was 4 pinches of salt, 1/4 tsp of BioEnergyC (vitamin c with ribose for buffering), and 1 tsp of Vinco's magnesium glycinate powder three times a day. Then the same with salt and vitamin C but increased to 3 tsp of mag glycinate before bedtime. I don't need potassium.

    I've done a bit of research recently and found out if you aren't getting enough magnesium, this will cause a need for potassium. So maybe this is why I don't need the potassium like other people.

    In terms of actual mg....each pinch of salt is 1/8 tsp, so that's 250mg per pinch. 1/4 tsp of BioEnergyC is about 800 mg vit. C. One tsp of magnesium glycinate is 300mg magnesium.

    So for the whole day - 4000mg salt, 3200mg vit. C, and 1800mg magnesium. A lot!

    Note - spacing it out throughout the day is important for absorption, plus your body is constantly leaking this out.

    I determined these amounts via muscle testing.

    So, if your blood levels are already normal, I don't get how this is safe?

    caledonia How do you do muscle testing with these things? I have youtubed it and its not clear. Do you hold the supplement on one hand and try to pull up your other arm?

    Also, how much do you take now? Thanks.

    1 scoop of Carlson glycine powder, mixed into a little water. It works by lowering core body temp. and helps you go into a deeper state of sleep.
