  • Hey, great video thank you! So I was hinted about this “alternative kind” of website I read in some comments. If infertility is your problem, you should at least skim through it, google Dobbie Nerkstrol’s website for a science backed way to get pregnant within 60 days.

  • Dr told me pre-menopause but I wanna baby my age is 39 +2 month now I take fermoston 2/10 because my MH level is 41 aur hormones imbalance, please how can I do conceive, please reply me?

  • Great! I was long-looking for just this, thank you! BUT has anyone here had the opportunity to read Dobbie Nerkstrol’s Infertility Cure? Well.. there’s this one specific plan she recommends getting pregnant within 60 days, and start feeling your body change within the first weeks, not for everybody! But to each their own.

  • One of the worst parts of adulthood is lack of sleep. When we tried to conceive it happened that I spent several sleepless nights in a row. But after months of struggle we finally had found solution. Happened that my hubby is huge baseball fan. So, once he saw advertisement of a Ukrainian baseball team whose sponsor was reproductive medical center. After quick online dialogue with manager and after viewing their site closer we decided to take a chance there. Our journey with that clinic (Biotexcom) was nothing but pleasure. We planned to spend whole our savings but in reality left there only half. As our whole all-inclusive package cost only 30k euros. We choose allinclusive package with ultimate attempts. One thing we noticed right away was that our doctor had an eye for detail. What is important for us, clinic also helped us to prepare all the necessary documents. What I like the most is a strict and simple contract. Without any traps and pitfalls. So now, my reason for lack of sleep is more pleasant and loved.

  • The best thing to quiet your mind and have amazing sleep is to take CBD Oil, works perfect for me and lots of my clients…I also take it everyday to reduce anxiety…

  • I am curious to know if having a retroverted uterus, means you need to sleep in a specific way once you are pregnant. I have found no evidence of this need on the internet, however, my doctor told me I needed to do this.

  • What a great video full of interesting information. Thank you for answering my question about how to calm the mind before sleep, I will try the worry journal and gratitude journal and see if that helps. Thank you!

  • Hi… i jus wana ask if some 1 have only 1 falopian tube howe the person get pregnant or there is also some fabroids out side the uetrous howe get pregnant? help me plz

  • Another great video Dana. Your program helped me with my 8 month old son who started waking up every 25 minutes at daytime naps. I remember doing research and research as to what and why this was happening. People even told me crazy things like he’s probably just not getting enough breast milk and had me doubting myself and my milk supply. Once I found Sleep Sense and realized that he just needed some independent sleep skills our lives changed! I think you have something amazing going on here. YouTube is such a strong platform and I think a lot of people come here searching for answers. I noticed you never really reply to comments on here though for moms or people who have questions relating to your videos. I find myself answering their questions for you since I’m so familiar with the program. I think it would be nice if you would start paying more attention to the comments on these videos you put out and actually responding to people who have questions/comments. Thank you for creating Sleep Sense.

  • Honking car locking wakes people up and Creates Noise Stress Everywhere. When you park next to our houses and apartments on the street we can hear it inside. Please Break the Honk Habit.

  • As I always say if you dont enough sleep because of school just dont do anything during school, just doze off and shut off your brain just sleep all the time when ur parents take away ur phone. And act like you dont care about anything and sleep all the time. PERIODT��

  • When he talked about kids not getting enough sleep because school starts early made me laugh because my parents had a strict bedtime (8pm) rule in school nights (1st to 7th grade). But then I went to boarding school and I threw that idea out of the window �� I have no regrets but glad my parents cared for my need to rest��

  • I got Sexually Assaulted while I was sleeping and since I’m still living with that person, I’m sadly unable to get a good and peaceful sleep for almost 2 years now. I remember only getting like 3 hours of sleep, when I was still in Highschool ( I really don’t know how I managed to graduate, honestly). I was so mentally and physically exhausted that, I at one point took Suicide into consideration. To my bad, I was already suffering from depression before my Assault even took place, which made everything obviously even worse. 
    Now that I’m not in school anymore I get enough sleep but, it’s not peaceful and relaxing as it should be. I’m living in constant fear of getting Assaulted again. Good thing is, I’m moving out soon. I’m hoping that after moving out and living alone, I will finally get proper, relaxing and peaceful sleep. After 2 years of living in constant fear and paranoia, I really deserve it. 

    Long story short, don’t take sleep for granted.

  • “Sleep deprivation can make people more sensitive to pain”
    No wonder every time I wake up I feel like I’m in pain all over my body. Like if you pull the hair on my head it hurts way more than it usually would.

  • When I become sleep deprived, my left eye starts pointing inward and I start going cross-eyed. I have to blink repeatedly in order to re-center my vision sometimes.

  • Yesterday, I decided to stay up ALL night, without sleep. I forgot that we had to go over to see a college. I couldn’t stop closing my eyes, and blanking out. I passed out like 15 minutes in our trip. I woke up JUST before we got there. A couple hours later, when I was watching videos, I kept on thinking it was 10 PM, and I was playing videos that were near full volume! But then I came back to understand that it was only 7 PM. And that’s when I passed out AGAIN! I woke up at 8 AM today! I slept for THIRTEEN HOURS! PLEASE SLEEP FOR AT LEAST 1 HOUR!

  • my sleep schedule is so fucked up. my day starts at 2am pretty much and ends at 4pm. usually sleep during school and then from 4pm-2am.

  • I’ve been sleep deprived for at least 2-3 years now, I only get 5 hours on average during the work week and a little over 7 hours on weekends.

  • When I was awake for 48 hours (which I have every week because of sleeping problems) I laid down in bed slept for 4 hours and woke up, thought I was king Charles 2 of Spain and have to figure out how my ancestors where related to each other lol. Took me half an hour to realise that I’m not Charles 2 �� that was reaaally strange.

  • Lately I’ve been hallucinating at night, I’ve been seeing and hearing really creepy things. I think I get a good amount of sleep, I go to sleep past 12pm and my body wakes itself up around 4 sometimes but I just go back to sleep until I’m bothered to stand up.

  • I got mild insomnia for years getting up around 4 am on many days. A couple of months ago, I started to get merely two to four hrs rest every single night, leaving me in a a whole lot worse situation of insomnia. This plan has really helped me a lot in improving my sleeping issue. This is in addition to knowing the principles of sleeping. I discovered Google and found this tip on a website.. It is Zoey Sυnodoz

  • my father who been a heavy tobacco smoker and a heavy alcohol drinker only gets typically an half hour to an full hour of sleep once a year and he’s a intensely pessimistic drug and alcoholic user he blames others for his misfortunes besides him having very acute scoliosis and constantly binging himself in constant tobacco cigarettes and depriving me and others like my mom and my Asperger’s older brother and the pets of oxygen because he’s a intense chain smoker and plus he’s so sleep deprived he nearly burned downed the house twice and the neighborhood and he views sleep as an entire laughing childish joking matter that shouldn’t be taken seriously and he’s been a tobacco cigarette smoker since he was 7 and he’s 64 and he’s pessimistic as all the god damn drugs and alcohol he constantly consumes and he’s smoking habits are so bad it’s literally and legitimately has ruined my healthy sleep cycle and he’s a retired ex lawyer he literally claims anti tobacco movements and groups are neo fascist radical racist Nazis that refuse to embrace big tobacco and he also claims all children’s programs should heavily invest and promote tobacco products tremendously so big tobacco companies could gain more profits even during pandemics and he also claims babies and children as young as 3 should most of there diet and life heavily involved with tobacco and he even states tobacco products are the highest prioritizing resource and essential product even during pandemics and he even states and claims tobacco products doesn’t deprive anyone of oxygen nor causes catastrophic environment damages nor damaging pollution and he even states and constantly claims all societies needs is so much big tobacco in western and eastern societies so much 2 year olds would get a good healthy dose of tobacco in most of there diet it’s 100 pollution and environmental damage free and good for the brain and heart and soul and that’s my mentally ill and legally insane retired ex lawyer of an father and I also think he has not gone to rehab besides he’s alcoholic brother is literally dying from alcohol poisoning and he’s literally near his own deathbed and my father claims he’s better than he is and I rather have my father go through intense conversation therapy and rehab instead of pessimistically indulging himself with constant tobacco cigarettes and alcoholic beverages proclaiming himself as an a appropriate individual which he is not and he and he’s other pessimistic other half my Asperger’s older brother literally and legitimately almost put me into an psychiatric hospital when my mom was not having fun nor enjoyed her trip to Ohio last year because my senile pessimistic drug and alcohol addict father and my pessimistic Asperger’s older brother almost got me arrested and almost settled me permanently almost indefinitely into an residential psychiatric hospital while getting arrested while I was just getting tired of there senile and drug and alcoholic hallucinogenic senile delusional delinquent false reality that I had to hospitalize myself just to get away from them and I would not care at all if my father had even tomorrow and my pessimistic Asperger’s older brother still believing and thinking everything is a certain way by his own false belief as to how society and rest of the world truly is which is not even a factual nor legally nor societal case that isn’t even true and my drug and alcoholic addict father and Asperger’s older brother are false realities ed into a reality that isn’t even legal nor how society properly functions and is this sorta belief and reality is a primary reason families get divorced in the first place and that shows how lowbrow how society gets if all drugs and alcohol becomes legal and you just get to watch a great empire and your own family fall due to a false reality that is not legally a entity nor a reality that society and world that lives a pond which is a false prophet philosophy and psychology which in itself a crime and a prevalence that should’ve studied and research and putting individuals like this into intense conversion therapy and lots of rehab intensely rehab all I can say

  • I once actually used sleep deprivation as a way to make myself more relaxed around people, lol.
    I used to be a member of this school band at my university a couple years ago and I always hesitated to say anything to them because I often have this uneasy feeling that I could make a bad impression at absolutely any moment, so I stayed up all night just to put myself in that wonderful relaxed state that I sometimes get into when I am sleep-deprived, and it was super-easy for me to have relaxed conversations with the people in the school band the next day. xD

  • I snook out till 6am and as i was walking home i could hear footsteps could see people walking but then when i blinked or something like that they disappered, heard random people speaking but no one was anywhere near me. also when i was walking through a dark park i could see grass turn into snakes and then grass. When i walked into my house i heard out of no where my mom call my name or say something she always does, she wasnt even home. That shits really scary

  • once you’ve been up for 4 days or more you start to see people appear out of the corner of your eye. they are ether spirits or you are starting to bleed into another reality. sleep dep. opens you up to all sorts of things. ive seen shadow people. it starts off with your name being called around the 3 day mark then things jut get stranger.

  • Havent been going to sleep lately and been seeing like shadows moving in my peripheral vision and yesterday I saw black clouds or gas idk what it was and I also saw a like a triangle or crescent coming from the ceiling in my kitchen I thought I was going crazy or something

  • For me, insomnia ha caused my anxiety to spike really bad, for a while I became obsessed / worried with the idea of having something worse e.g. a personality disorder, schizo, etc. Not that there is anything wrong with having any of that, but I knew I wasn’t prepared for that fear. But, you aren’t alone. If you’re worried that you have something worse, you probably don’t. Insomnia is a powerful thing, don’t lose hope. You will get through it, trust me. It took me months, it’s a process.

  • Sleep deprivation actually makes me have grand mal seizures (if i am not on my seizure medication that is). I haven’t had a seizure in years since I’ve been on this medication. Before i got on it i would go into a seizure but only when i stayed up super late then slept for less than like 5 hours then woke up. But if i stayed up all night without sleep i wouldn’t have any. It was so weird. I always wondered why that was. I know sleep deprivation can effect epilepsy but i don’t understand why it was only if i got too little sleep not Didn’t happen if i didn’t sleep at all.

  • stay up for 2 days straight and when I walked home the clouds were rainbow colors and the sidewalk was moving. so long story short sleep deprivation is the way for a free acid trip

  • I feel myself falling into that “zombie” mode and it’s becasue I’m not sleeping enough. I haven’t had a good nights sleep in forever, the most I’ve recently gotten is 6 hours. I fall asleep during the day for 2-3 minutes at a time, like at school. But, when I get home and actually have the opportunity to sleep, I can’t. This. Sucks.

  • I’m 17 and still growing and I went hunting at 3:00 am with 8 hours of sleep in 2 days and I was watching sticks wrap around each other and rocks shake and change shape and I was seeing animals one minute and not the next. Is this from sleep deprivation or was my coffee spiked?

  • Since I began adulthood, I couldn`t get enough sleeping hours. I am on day 7 of this sleeping plan and already experience a lot better. I assumed there is no remedy to this condition I have got. I believed getting Eight hours of sleep is impossible to get. This strategy is absolutely incredible. It states a number of explanations and also a method for various instances of sleeping disorders.

  • Baby boomers will probably keep the school hours from being pushed back because if they had to get up early this generation can and blah blah blah. Making any sort of improvement or change with these people is like pulling teeth.

  • A common theme on this channel is condemning cohort and comparative studies based on their inability to prove causality. However, this video leans heavily on those type of studies, and seems to present randomized control studies with the attitude of “oh, well if you REALLY think we need them.” I think it’s irresponsible to hold ideas you agree with and those you don’t to different burdens of proof. If you think randomized control studies are the gold standard, then stick to that belief if all of your videos. And if you’re going to deviate from that belief, at least acknowledge that, and explain to your audience why.
