Dr. Jim Pagel, director of Rocky Mountain Rest in Pueblo, Col., agreed with the finding. It doesn’t surprise me personally, he said. At puberty onset, the circadian design is very unstable and very sensitive to light. So the complications they’re finding make sense. That opinion was seconded by Kelly Baron, director of the Behavioral Sleep Medicine Program at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago. This study didn’t actually test how light affected sleep itself, but it did find that it causes a issue on the pathway to rest by suppressing melatonin, Baron said. Simultaneously, other studies have consistently shown that consumer electronics in the bedroom are detrimental to sleep for both parents and children, frankly, which means we all really should be thinking about ways to limit our exposure to electronics, and light generally, before we go to bed, Baron said.Acupuncture is more intimate than that. There exists a relationship between your practitioner and the individual on an energetic level. The practitioner observes and senses the health of the individual and how they react to the insertion of the first few needles, and then the practitioner modifies their plan accordingly. They may insert as much as 30 needles at different factors, and those points would change from one patient to another, even if they showed the same symptoms. That’s because each patient is unique. Each patient has a different energy system, a different physical make-up, a different posture, a different design of energy expression, and so on.
