Is this normal? Is anyone else having these problems or is it just my hormones adjusting to the new IP? Even melatonin is not helping..... argh..... where is the sandman?????
My sleep was affected the first 6 weeks or so but eventually settled down. The magnesium does help with sleep. I actually increased the dosage for a bit.
Cortisol disruption can cause sleep problems (& diets like ours can disrupt cortisol cycles). I got some help from a Functional Medicine doctor
