A general rule of thumb is that if you have consistent problems falling asleep (not necessarily due to your brain racing), or problems staying asleep, there’s a good chance you are deficient in calcium, which is a natural muscle relaxer. So in that case, I encourage you to try Shaklee’s calcium (suggested minimum dose for adults is 2 in am and 2 in pm), to see how it works for you. Then, depending on your age and lifestyle, you might need to incorporate 2 more calcium at bedtime (either regularly) or just occasionally.
When Shaklee was formulating their probiotic, they put 500 million of these live organisms into their tablet, but unlike most other companies, simply knowing they put them in there wasn’t enough. Shaklee went through the time and expense of simulating it being swallowed, and remeasured to see how much of LIVE organisms survived the journey to the lower gut and discovered that 85-90% of them were dead. After a few more changes and failures to deliver them ALIVE, they went to the stores, grabbed several other brands of probiotics to put them thru the same testing. Some of them were already dead in the bottle (not even surviving their shelf life), those that were still alive, were then put through the same simulation and every single one of them also arrived in the gut anywhere from 85-95% dead.
What you say repeatedly, and how they view themselves, can turn into a self-fulfilling prophecy!
When was the last time you heard a parent describe their toddler/child (outloud) as being “shy” or “timid” or “wild and uncontrollable”, etc. All toddlers and young children can have bouts of being “shy” for instance, or act crazy on occasion, but watch what you start saying about them and be careful it doesn’t become a “habitual” description. Believe it or not, just as negative “self-talk” can cause us difficulties and barriers in our own lives, describing a child over and over in a particular way….can actually lead them to “becoming” that way….whether it’s a good or bad personality trait! Because what you believe you are…..YOU ARE!
