Key Time Stamps:
06:25 Sleep disorders expedite ageing, even in children.
07:40 Sleep disorders are an endocrinologic disorder.
12:20 Pantothenic acid is made only by your microbiome.
12:50 Sleep apnea and insomnia are characterized by poor body chemistry for sleep.
13:25 We have 4 complicated linked sleep switches.
14:52 Vitamin D feeds the gut bugs that make B vitamins and the vagus nerve directly connects our gut bugs to our brains.
18:10 Dr. Stasha Gominak sees sleep apnea, requiring c-pap is an end stage disease.
20:20 Every night the tongue sends feedback signals directing growth to the brain.
21:15 When the mouth is open during sleep, the jaw and the rest of the face will not develop normally.
22:00 The chemistry of the brain plays a part in sleep disordered children.
29:40 Vitamins don’t fix people. You need to be asleep to apply them to repair.
36:40 B Vitamins play a huge role in our sleep.
37:40 B vitamins come from gut bugs, not your food.
42:30 The 8 B vitamins are created as an 8-pack in specific ratios.
46:00 B5 paralyzes us for sleep.
52:20 Children who develop autism have an abnormal immune system and microbiome and are deficient in acetylcholine and endocannabinoids.
55:50 Normal sleep is needed to improve the functioning of an autistic child.
01:11:13 If you have autoimmune disease, each immunization risks flaring the condition.
01:23:49 Acetylcholine is responsible for our ability to concentrate during the day and responsible for our ability to enter sleep, stay in sleep and get paralyzed in sleep.
01:27:40 Acetylcholine is a major player in the parasympathetic nervous system/rest and digest.
01:30:02 Improper heartrate variability means that your sympathetic nervous system is in overdrive.
01:32:36 Acetylcholine, not only acts like a neurotransmitter, it acts as an anti-inflammatory hormone.
01:35:08 Some scientist believe that ADD, as well as autism, is a disease of acetylcholine deficiency.
01:38:00 Your microbiome makes your serotonin, using vitamin D and pyridoxine.
01:41:10 Vitamin D2 is not the same as vitamin D3.
01:44:00 A vitamin D blood level of between 60 – 80 is optimal for a sleep disordered person.
01:44:50 The accurate vitamin D testing method is the LCMS.
01:54:37 Vitamin D works directly upon the pituitary.
01:55:40 1,25-OH is directly linked to the repair of DNA damage resulting from UVB light hitting the skin.
01:56:30 Each hormone in your body is designed to have a unique affect on each organ that has that receptor.
01:59:00 Dr. Gominak has a workbook on her website for you to use.

Blowing my mind
Listening to Stasha Gominak sleep episode. You have a great podcast, this is a fascinating episode, and AMAZING guest. I have been listening a while, and really felt compelled to rate the show. Greatly appreciate the work you’re putting in!
Great science backed content
I love Mike’s passion for science and for putting out great content on, sometimes, controversial subjects. These subjects need to be addressed from many angles and we cannot allow just one view to prevail. That flies in the face of science!
Keep up the good work Mike, but one piece of advice – stay focused and on track! Sometimes you spin off in a different tangent and never return to orbit. Take some lion’s mane already!
Think About it
Yes, we will all have better protection against the virus if we have proper nutrition, exercise, and are metabolically fit. But stop dragging mask wearing as a policy or a practice. The huge numbers of unfit people aren’t going to get fit overnight. We need interventions that work now, not 6 months from now when someone turns their health around. Mask wearing is still the best prevention that works in the moment for the most people (healthy OR with preexisting conditions) and is a public policy that should be encouraged, not derided.
