I met a lovely Spanish speaking bar tender this evening. She commented on my matching shirt and FitBit band, at which point I explained that it tracked steps I take each day and how many times I woke up in the night. At which, she commented that she did not sleep well due to Fibromyalgia.
She was sipping on Red Bull, one of my frequently consumed beverages in years past. Perhaps it was the late nights working late at one of Chicago's highly Zagat rated bars that caused her chronic fatigue (and pain?). Perhaps it was a diet high in carbohydrates, resulting in elevated glucose levels, as is common in America. This would explain how someone physically fit could have the complications of glucose without the outward issues I have been dealing with.
I passed her one of my Biohackineering cards, explaining that her symptoms might be alleviated by some Bulletproof Coffee in the morning, a low carbohydrate meal plan, and the addition of a Magnesium supplements to help her sleep.
When she said she was already taking a Magnesium and Calcium supplement for sleep (Natural Calm?) I knew I was speaking with a fledgling Biohacker.
I hope she takes the time to read my blog, and wish her the best in her battle with Chronic fatigue.
