Time for a Good Snooze
But not in the middle of the day! This is not the post I planned, but it requires addressing. Last week I talked about getting into nootropics in a small way, but not really conducting in-depth research. I decided to tweak my serotonin levels with 5-HTP, L-Theanine and ultimately some Tryptophan. By the end of the the week, my brain was in a fog and I couldn’t focus; sleep beckoned.
Fortunately I was able to think clearly enough to realize something was amiss, and I recalled the tweaking of my supplements. I think the Tryptophan tipped the balance. I must have forgotten that old episode of Seinfield. I immediately removed it from my stack and decided some additional research is warranted. These things absolutely have an effect, good or bad. Any doubt in that area was removed.
I met someone on-line in one of my private FB groups that has extensive experience and practice in these areas. He recommended a book, The Mood Cure. It contains self diagnostic tools and has diet and supplement guidelines.
My next steps will be taken more carefully with a lot more knowledge. I’ll follow-up in a few weeks with the results.
