Stress Sleep and Relaxation .

Stress Sleep .

Andre Willers
17 Apr 2014

Synopsis :
We promote sleep by increasing stress in a specific way .
Discussion :
1.Relaxation is normally described as the way to sleep .
2.Yet  ,sleep is a very active process . See Appendix A .
Your brain ATP consumption increases while asleep .
3.Stress increases ATP production .
4. Buccal transforms :
In general , buccal infusions have inordinate effects . See the effects of garlic (allicin)
5.Here  , we simply use it to increase Stress leading to increased ATP production in the brain .
Make strong coffee . Swirl it around the mouth (buccal) , then spit it out .
Do not swallow . Spit it out !
7.   What happens ?
ATP production in the head and brain is signalled for increase , but the rest of machinery in the stomach , duodenum is not activated .
The machinery in the head is activated , but not in the descending duodenum .
8. There seems to be another effect .
The differential ATP activation between the brain and the body seems to lead to a soporific and relaxation  of the body .
I just tried it , and that seems to be the effect .
Body stress has decreased significantly . Sleepy .
9. Why ?
The normal pattern is relaxation of body  leads to surplus of ATP . This triggers sleep , especially with melatonin .
But , a buccal stimulant also leads to a differential of ATP between body and head . This is the sleep trigger .
10 . How to sleep in a stressed way :
10.1 Take a Melatonin supplement (normal , not slow acting)
10.2 Swirl strong hot coffee in your mouth and spit it out .
10.3 That’s it .
10.4 There is actually side-effects of relaxation and lowering of bloodpressure as Sleep-mechanism activated .
Typically human
The way to relax or sleep is to stress more and spit it out .

Sleep is one of the most pervasive biological phenomena, but one whose function remains elusive. Although many theories of function, indirect evidence, and even common sense suggest sleep is needed for an increase in brain energy, brain energy levels have not been directly measured with modern technology. We here report that ATP levels, the energy currency of brain cells, show a surge in the initial hours of spontaneous sleep in wake-active but not in sleep-active brain regions of rat. The surge is dependent on sleep but not time of day, since preventing sleep by gentle handling of rats for 3 h or 6 h also prevents the surge in ATP. A significant positive correlation was observed between the surge in ATP and EEG NREM delta activity (0.5–4.5 Hz) during spontaneous sleep. Inducing sleep and delta activity by adenosine infusion into basal forebrain during the normally active dark period also increases ATP. Taken together, these observations suggest that the surge in ATP occurs when the neuronal activity is reduced, as occurs during sleep. The levels of phosphorylated AMP-activated protein kinase (P-AMPK), well known for its role in cellular energy sensing and regulation, and ATP show reciprocal changes. P-AMPK levels are lower during the sleep-induced ATP surge than during wake or sleep deprivation. Taken together, these results suggest that sleep-induced surge in ATP and the decrease in P-AMPK levels set the stage for increased anabolic processes during sleep and provides insight into the molecular events leading to the restorative biosynthetic processes occurring during sleep.
