For optimal brain
function and the restoration/healing of the body it is best to try to get
uninterrupted 8 hours of sleep... If possible!
Lack of sleep is linked to
an increase in cytokine molecules that control immune response and inflammation.
More sleep is required when the immune system is working overtime as in
a body filled with Lyme and other zoonotic infections.
The Pineal gland produces
melatonin hormone which controls the body rhythms and in particular the
internal body clock/sleep/wake patterns. Melatonin increases the deeper
stages of sleep. In a balanced pineal gland there is almost no melatonin
in the blood during the daytime, while at the end of the day the melatonin
increases in the blood allowing sleepiness.
Melatonin remains in the
blood all night while the person sleeps and lessens as morning approaches.
When light enters the eyes, the melatonin of the blood goes away. An unbalanced
pineal gland creates a too early or too late sleep pattern, which in these
infections may stem from an inflamed Brain Stem or infected pineal gland.
Sleep is vital in promoting
and restoring physical health and emotional well-being. Poor or/and minimal
sleep takes a toll on mood, mental sharpness, energy, productivity, creativity,
and ability to handle stress. Lack of sleep prevents the body's natural
cycle of healing, thus pain increases. Every system in the body is affected
from lack of sleep.
The quality of sleep determines
the amount of hours of sleep required for a body fighting bacteria and
repairing itself. Restorative sleep means deep sleep (stages 3 and 4) and
With zoonotic diseases their
toxins, or where they are located in the brain, manifest sleep disorders
and more often then not poor quality sleep is the norm, creating a cascade
of stresses on the body.
*Inflammation or spirochetes
Hypothalamus, mid brain and brain stem area disrupt the healthy
functions of this area... the sleep pattern included. The inflammation
manifests weird symptoms such as the inability go into deep Rem sleep,
falling asleep at incorrect times for no apparent reason,
difficulty falling asleep, being WIDE awake in the middle of the night,
feeling extremely fatigued yet unable to fall asleep.
The lack of muscle repair/healing from lack of sleep increases the pain
level throughout the body and then it is the pain that also keeps a person
Perform a daily ritual
Preparation of the Physical:
No caffeine, alcohol or other stimulants. No smoking. No vigorous exercise
5 hours before bedtime. Preferably do not to set an alarm and go to sleep
with the intention of sleeping in and then sleep in if you can to allow
body to heal itself. But, if you must set an alarm, then plan your
bed time ritual so you will have at least nine hours or more before you
need to wake up to the alarm.
Preparation of the mind:
have an interesting project going so you have at least one "enjoyable purpose"
to look forward to in the upcoming day. Before going to bed look at the
"problems/worries" that are running through the brain. Analyze it, decide
if it is your problem to own. If so, write down on a paper what action
you will take to solve it and which day you will do it. If it is not your
problem to solve, get your self out of other peoples business.
* Establish a wee
ritual, such as washing up, slowly sipping a sleepy time hot tea, going
to bed, and reading something uplifting until you drift off to sleep
but not one where you want to finish the book)

Sharing my Sleep habits when I was in
I sleep on a firm mattress in
the cool bedroom, in the basement, with the window open. During the winter
I have three comforters on top of me. When my body wakes me up because
it is boiling inside, I just flip off the comforters and lay in the cold
for about ten - fifteen minutes to bring the temperature down.
I do not use the top bed sheet
as I get tangled in it and when I am weak,or have an urgent bladder
call, it is just one of those struggles I do not need.
I do not tuck the comforter
at the foot of the bed as it puts too much pressure on my toes and feet
as they get numb very quickly.
I have a vessel near the bed
for when the bladder is erratic as I know that sometimes it will never
hold until it reaches the bathroom.
I most always have a creative
project going so that in the morning I have at least one "enjoyable purpose"
to look forward to the upcoming day. It calls me to get out of bed and
step into my day with anticipation..
When I become wide awake during
the night I have learned to just get up out of bed rather to lay there
as the pain always grows when I just lay. So I do computer or TV until
I am tired and then go back to bed and then usually fall to sleep quickly
before the pain builds up. My pain seems worse when horizontal.

The "the sleeping room":
Quiet: Ideal is
a room in a basement where the walls keep the heat out and muffle outside
noises, or in an area away from street noises and the business of the family
kitchen, and no Big Ben ticking clocks. In some instances, music that
can promote sleep by relaxing (not music that activates the brain) and
the soft music or a fan running can also block out noisy environments.
Darkness: Total darkness
by blocking all light from outside windows, no led lights in room, no glow
in the dark alarm clocks or digital clocks. No plugged in appliances such
as TV, phones, any electronics, except a bed lamp. (Preferably a touch
Fresh Air: Room aired
out prior to going to bed. Sleeping with opened window for circulating
Temperature: Cool to
Comfort: Bed comfortable
firm mattress, clean linens. No top bed sheet as weak people with urgent
bladders easily get tangled up trying to get up. . No tucking of comforters
at the foot of the bed as it puts too much pressure on toes and feet already
neurologically numb. Ideal is a comforter larger then bed size.
Bladder relief: If Bathroom
is not attached to the bed room and spine nerves causing weak bladder muscles,
or inflamed brain is sending incorrect messages to the bladder, then place
next to the bed a large oval empty plastic soap container bottle, with
the handle on it that has the top cut off or any vessel. Use it until the
infections have been eradicated and bladder re-balances itself.
plenty of rest when doing heavy duty eradication and body is
detoxifying. Body must regenerate many new cells as the pathogens die with
Sleep an average of eight
hours to give your body time to heal and re-balance itself from what
has assaulted it and from the previous day's activities.
Take sleep naps when
your body calls for it. Sometimes a five minute nap is all you need for
your body to catch up to itself.
Think of sleep as money for
your immune system bank; If sleep was only four hours, as soon as you become
sleepy again go to bed and sleep for four hours or more. Learn to nap.
It may be needed a few times a day. If you are in the Lyme stage where
deep sleep no longer is occurring, even more sleep will be required as
you will feel you are always running on empty, your muscles aren't repairing
themselves, the body isn't healing... It is sleep deprived.
Dealing with the wide awake
disorder in the middle of the night: Stay in bed for only fifteen minutes
and then get up and out of bed, rather then laying there (as pain will
just grow). Get busy at doing something relaxing until yawning begins then
go back to bed. DO NOT fret about how tired you will be the next day. You
have gone without an entire nights sleep before and you have survived!
Walking around barefoot
naturally balances the energy in the body. It massages the meridian points
in the feet which are correlated with sleep.
