Welcome!

This used to be a blog dedicated to one of my interests, dream interpretation. I have decided to expand it to include thoughts about pretty much Everything.

Helping people

Back in the day
Medicine woman: "The ancestors have long used a tea from this plant to help ward off evil spirits that attack at night. Drink it at sunset, and it will protect you."
Result: The patient can fall asleep better and get better rest.

Today
Doctor: "Serotonin levels drop when the sun starts to go down, and then, normally, your body increases melatonin production to bring itself to sleep. When serotonin levels drop, though, it can trigger anxiety and overarousal. This drug will increase your serotonin levels and help you manufacture melatonin more efficiently. Take one pill every night shortly before going to bed, and you'll start to feel better."
Result: The patient can fall asleep better and get better rest.
