He says that he wakes up anywhere from 4:30am to 6:30am. He turns off his computer at 7pm. When sun goes down, he wears orange glasses that blocks out blue-light. Blue light is light of the day and it hampers melatonin production. He also turns off the WiFi and shuts down the electricity to his bedroom. Incidentally, he mentions he walks about 8 miles a day.
To learn about concerns of EMF’s effect on sleep, there are plenty of articles, here is just one. Dr. Jack Kruse is another resource on EMF effects. He also turns off the electricity to bedroom and sleeps on the Magnetico Sleep Pad. He doesn’t watch TV after dark, doesn’t use florescent light. And he uses Amber glasses to block blue-light. [reference] He uses spring water. Bedroom pitch dark. He gets out in the sun. No microwave in his house. Cold temperature simulates melatonin production.
Suzanne Somers, author of Tox-Sick, says she sleeps 8 hours and take melatonin every night. She also advocates epsom salt bath as a sleep aid.
