  • I'm no doc, but it looks like you get more stressed throughout the day, especially around lunch. That seems normal since you arguably work or go to school and have so many outstanding circumstances like nerves, etc. Go back to the BP book about cortisol. I believe that stress hormone can be hacked with deep breathing/meditative states, walking/light exercise, or bursts of energy like HIIT to wear you out so you can sleep. Saunas, dry or infrared, help me sweat out toxins that can add to the hormone. You can try tea, and of course, good fats and less carbs (think induction phase like Atkins...less than 20g), try to be "centered" by being in nature, opening and sitting by a window and breathing in fresh air, prayer if you have spirituality... anything to relieve stress. Avoid foods that stress the body, like plants and nuts that are susceptible to mold toxins. Try eating fish and two high quality veggies like steamed asparagus and cauliflower with butter and intermittent fasting if you are able. Just "clean your system" so you can think clearly about your problem and begin tackling each and every one of them. And you will be able to handle all your dilemmas with high, clean, delicious, nutritious brain food, aka fats!
