This is what I do when I can’t sleep. It works really well and I am reluctant to add anything else to this formula.
B6 modulates the nervous system and promotes relaxation. It helps your body convert food into fuel and converts tryptophan into serotonin. A lack of B6 may result in insomnia. Take the active form, P5P, which has already been converted into a coenzyme.
It’s not as easy to find, but much easier for the body to metabolize. Take 50mg-100mg an hour before bed. AOR is a fantastic brand and one of the only ones that makes a P5P-only supplement.
Magnesium deficiency is common with chronic infections. Some claim that Lyme leeches magnesium, leaving us depleted. Some even say to remove magnesium from the diet to starve the Lyme. I did this for a while when I first got Lyme Disease. It’s hard to say if it helped. But without magnesium, mitochondria don’t function properly, shaking occurs, even seizures. Magnesium calms the nerves. It also lowers stomach acidity, so take it away from food, as you want acidity increase when eating. The dosage depends on your body.
