Most melatonin gummies in US are inaccurately labelled

1. Melatonin gummies are routinely given to children for sleep, stress and relaxation.
Melatonin is not approved by FDA for use in children, and hence #melatonin gummies are bought OTC or online.
#MedTwitter #sleep
2. Pediatric melatonin ingestions in US increased 530% from 2012 to 2021 and were associated with 27 795 emergency department and clinic visits, 4097 hospitalizations, 287 intensive care unit admissions, and 2 deaths.
3. In a recent study, 25 melatonin gummy brands were analyzed. Twenty-two of 25 products (88%) were inaccurately labeled, and only 3 products (12%) contained a quantity of melatonin that was within ±10% of the declared quantity.…

Step 1 - accept chronic illness as present
Step 2 - pursue THOROUGH self-care solutions
Step 3 - Prenatal/Child page is good for the family (no elderly specific info on the page though)…
Step 4 - autoimmune & mitochondrial support!…
Step 5 -
"Doctors can't help or they refuse to help. " @BlueSlots
<- accept that that statement, sadly, is factual - the medical system has been taught wrong. They are either confident in their wrong methods, or complicit with the culling. CAUTION entering care & losing rights
Once in a hospital setting the patient and family can have little control over what happens next.

The US CoV death rates STRONGLY suggest that the US CoV "protocols" are quite DEADLY.

Not much data out there but even #redlight with a high lux will suppress #melatonin & disrupt #circadianrhythm.

So make sure your red light machine is far from you at night to reduce intensity! Use a lux meter.
Light exposure in evening, night & morning affected circadian phase of #melatonin levels. In addition, even longest wavelengths (631 nm, red) & intermittent light exposures induced circadian resetting responses & exposure to...
low light levels (5-10 lux) at night when sleeping with eyes closed induced a circadian response.

you reach your 20's. Giving little kids Ipads and video games is basically child abuse.

basically makes them dumber because white matter contains the cables in your brain that makes it possible for you to learn and develop cognitive skills etc. It also makes your kid's behavior worse.

This is in addition to wrecking their #circadianrhythm, lowering their...

UV power level at sunrise in Northern hemisphere summer = Zero.

You usually find UV light doesn’t emerge until about 20 minutes after sunrise (this depends where you are in the world). Even at that time it is very weak UVA registering a... Image

I suspect there is UV at sunrise just not detectable by a meter but, there definitely is UV light out in early morning hours shortly after sunrise. You are not UV free until 930am or whatever some meme shows.

So get out there early for the uv free red and...

There are many reasons but as you see in the pics below, UV light power vanishes and we see a #bluelight SPIKE in the sun's spectral output. Color temperature also spikes at this time too.
The vanishing of UV light along with the...
increase in blue light along with a color temperature spike triggers photoreceptor cells in your skin and eyes (cornea and retina) called melanopsin and neuropsin. Neuropsin is a UVA photoreceptor. It senses the diminishing UV light and alerts your body clocks that night is...
coming. Melanopsin pays attention to this brightening/dimming of light especially light in the blue light range (480nm peak). As this kind of light at sunset bursts and then dims quickly after sunset, melanopsin sends a signal through your main body clock called the...

@organichemusic interesting article on melatonin as a therapeutic for #longcovid. Can you include a melatonin try/efficacy question in an upcoming survey? Or if someone has tried melatonin for. LC with success or failure please share observations in this thread. Thx!

#covid19 Key Emphasis on #Melatonin Safety and Therapeutic Efficacy

"it likely that multi-tasking melatonin will provide multi-protection, maintaining its efficacy against the virus variants that are already emerging and will emerge"…
"Melatonin is a systemic dealer that".."brings into play its cooperative triad, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immune-stimulant backbone, to stop the infective cycle of SARS-CoV-2 or any other endogenous or exogenous threat.
"In COVID-19, the corporal propagation of
SARS-CoV-2 involves an exacerbated oxidative activity and therefore the overproduction of great amounts of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (RONS)."

#3 OMEGA 3s. Fish Oil, Krill Oil, Algae Oil are all good sources of Omega 3. Be careful the EPA/DHA ratio. EPA helps with inflammation/DHA helps with cognition. You need both! Opt for a 1:1 or 2:1 ratio of DHA to EPA (2:1 ratio eg. 800 DHA/400EPA)…

@Mktweets0 Going to start a thread on #melatonin & its effects on CKD validated by scientific research. Please correct if you find any medical faults.

@Mktweets0 1/ Melatonin was first purified and characterised from the bovine pineal gland extract by Aron Lerner and co-workers in 1958.

However it has systemic effects. #Kidney cells (proximal tubule) express a melatonin receptor of type MTNR1.
@Mktweets0 2/ Looking at mRNA expression across several human tissues, surprisingly it's rather strongly expressed in colon and #kidney.…

Top #biohacks for increasing your #melatonin

Melatonin production happens 24 hours a day - this goddess healer and master antioxidant is not only a night-time pineal gland thing!

Melatonins regulates so much including your:
💎leptin (hunger drive)
1. Sync with the sun
Suggested Hacks:
A. Embrace sunlight in daytime
Eat outside, take breaks outside, walk & cycle more, work/exercise outside, walking meetings
B. Embrace darkness after sun down
Switch overhead lights to dim lamps or candles, swap video for audio media
2. Use infrared light to your advantage
Suggested Hacks:
A. be in the sun early in the day and later in the afternoon to boost melatonin production from the red light spectrum
B. use a red light devices eg. infrared sauna unit, blanket or bag, red light therapy device

Thread about #painless #birth

Did you have painless contractions?
Tell me your #birthstory
#momlife #pregnancy #OXYTOCIN…
I think this topic might trigger some in particular, bc of the #religious belief that #WomenMustSuffer

#christian cultural training:
In their origin story,
the women was the reason #EveAndAdam were damned. Because of Eve’s failure,
they believe
#childbirth must hurt.
#Childbirth was never expected to hurt, can trigger many people who had bad experiences.

Every birth is both physical
AND psychological.
Christians tend to have painful births bc they are TERRIFIED.

The curse of Eve
works on believers.

TW: @LAPDHQ went at us with batons hitting mothers and babies and peaceful protesters in front of @MayorOfLA. LAPD pulled one of us randomly and ended up grabbing Jaime.
.@JoeBiden and @Transition46 please pay attention! This is how @MayorOfLA treats the people of LA. This happened right outside his window while he was sipping his morning coffee. #BlockGarcetti from everything and anything.
Update: @RealJamiePenn released after being held in solitary for 3 hours. @NBCLA provided an offensive mouthpiece of a story for @LAPDHQ. LAPD claims “lynching” as the charge. To #chuds asking to see kids getting hit, go find ur jack off material someplace else, you sick fucks.

I'm not a big #tweetorial person, more a #bitesized learning guy.
But important topic + healthy peer pressure =
Let's talk about #Delirium in the ICU (#DICU)!
For the most part, this is applicable to most patients.

Q: Do you regularly assess for #DICU?
What does delirium look like?
<5% "hyperactive": EASY TO JUDGE these pts
95%: "hypoactive" or mixed: somnolent, not accepting feeds, withdrawn:
EASY TO MISS these pts

What's the big deal?
Vent time 🔼 8d
Hosp LOS 🔼 by 8d
Cognitive impairment at D/C: 50%, long term: 33%
WHAT is delirium:
😣 Altered level of consciousness (hyper/hypoactive) +
🙄 Inattention

With either:
😇 Change in cognition (who, you?, what is life?) OR
🤓 Change in perception

Easy to miss in a patient that isn't "belligerent" or "climbing out of the bed". It can be SUBTLE!

Nice @FrontPediatrics paper providing guidance for docs and #pwME in the diagnosis and management of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome #MECFS

#MedEd #MedTwitter #chronicillness #chronicpain #SickNotTired…
2. #MECFS is commonly misdiagnosed as a #somatic disorder

#pwME "..have been humiliated or dismissed by other providers, so [doctors] will need to be.. nonjudgmental.. & acknowledge that #MECFS is not a #psychological condition but a real illness"…
3. #MECFS symptoms can be diverse, complex, fluctuate and overlap with many other conditions making the diagnosis difficult

This @FrontPediatrics paper lists 33 (!) co-morbidities commonly associated with #MECFS
