With all the mattress technology and clinical studies many people still don't sleep well. For thousands of years people have slept on flea and bed bug infested sacks, hay, or simply where they lay down. Why is it so difficult now for so many people to get a good nights sleep?

This is really very good, thank you, I don't think most people realize how our diet and lifestyle is conspiring against our health and well being. Much of what we eat is so processed that I wonder if our bodies can even recognize it as food.
Thank you. It is no wonder that we have so many health issues.
Yes, very true. We are in a grand experiment, no former generation has ever had such a strange combination of stresses. It's interesting and terrifying at the same time, don't you think?
It fascinates me, how the body works. Then how well, or how bad it works.
The body is a machine with millions of years of R&D in it. As you suggest, if we co-operate with our history and eat what makes sense, rest and lower stress we can avoid most of what we suffer from now.
I think you've hit it exactly, We never let ourselves rest and it becomes harder to do so, we are under extraordinary pressure now, thanks for your imput
thanks, that's good to know. Do you know if sleep apnea ever get better or go away after awhile?
I think it does if, say, it was brought on by overweight or other things that can be controlled...structural obstructions that can be surgically corrected. But sometimes this answer is no...too great an answer here. I encourage you to research it. :)
Apnea is very curious, I'll look into it. Thanks I know we're kind of limited here but I appreciate your thoughts
Darkland, not to toot my own horn, but I wrote an entire piece on sleep apnea if you wish to read. Cheers.
interesting, thanks ithabise, I like to read it.
Wow that's very interesting...I didn't know that being comatose would make that kind of change. I guess that was a silver lining.
I have no idea if it is a common outcome of being comatose; however, in my case the change was significant...
As I understand it there are a lot of anomalies that can come from comatose, the brain is such unknown territory
Yes indeed; it was life-changing and all good. I now understand when we die, we are just passing on and death is far from our ultimate ending...
