Sleep Apnoea Forum Bringing Help + Support to the Patient

Hi i hope i'm asking the right question , Please i want to know what to do , My General Practitioner who deals with my General Heath is trying to stop another Dr i go to For Mental Heath from putting me on Melatonin , I'm having no problem's at all with my Cpap , but i can't sleep and the Dr has wrote to my General Doctor to put me on Melatonin , 

My normal GP has already stopped it once why he don't say , but the Mental Health Dr is going to try to get me back on them , he say's it will help me sleep and shouldn't interfere with my Apnea ,

So what i am asking please will the Melatonin be harmful with me being on Cpap at all , and which Dr do you think is right , i'm so confused with the whole thing , I would be Grateful for some input on this Please , Thankyou ,

St Johns wort is not melatonin it exaggerate its ingredients

the best meds for depression is sunlight at least 1 hour summer and two hodaysurs winter,letting the light strike the eyes without glass or glasses on or between your eyes and the sun even on overcast 

Thank you 99 for your advice , i'll stay in touch 


"The key factor in heliotherapy is the invisible ultraviolet band, and the key receptor is the retina. A layer of cells called the epithelial cells become highly neuro-active when exposed to ultraviolet radiation, without in any way affecting vision. While the visible bands of light excite the retina's rods and cones to produce vision, the invisible ultraviolet band stimulates the adjacent epithelial cells, which transmit the stimulus as a powerful neural Impulse through the optic nerve directly to the pituitary and pineal glands. Western medicine calls this newly discovered biosystem the 'oculo-edocrine system', but the mechanism has been known to Taoists for ages. The discovery has spawned a new branch of western science known as 'photobiology.'"

The Chinese have known about the sun and its power to heal, rejuvenate and prolong life for millennia now. This is why they made sure to get out in the sun and even practiced certain exercises which involved actually looking toward the sun but not directly at it. They did this in the early morning and late afternoon each day BEFORE 9 am and AFTER 4 pm when the sun was beginning to get stronger and weaker. They never did it between the hours of 9 am to 4 pm, because the sun is too strong and eye damage could occur.

The Sun Blinking Exercise, A.K.A. "Administering Sunbeams" 

The first exercise is done by looking around the sun at the four points of the compass and blinking the eyes rapidly for 3-5 seconds. Look once to the north of the sun about a 15-degree angle above it while blinking the eyes for 3-5 seconds, then to the right (east), then below it (south) and finally to the left (west) of the sun itself. Again, don't look directly at it, since the part of the retina that we want to irrigate with the UV rays and other rays from the sun exist on the side of the eyes, not in the center. This also helps prevent any damage to the eyes themselves, which is why it's done before 9am and after 4pm in the evening when the sun is not too strong, but the amount of UV rays is quite sufficient to result in significant benefits.

The second exercise is a bit more advanced. Following the same rules as the previous exercise, were going to roll our eyes around the sun for 3-5 seconds clockwise, then pause, look away for a few seconds, then repeat the roll in the opposite direction, counter-clockwise. This method provides a more complete irrigation of the retina with UV radiation. Just be careful not to let the eyes look directly AT the sun as you move the eyes around it.

At first, these exercises might cause your eyes to water or throb. That is due to the epithelial cells being without sufficient UV rays for so long, as well as possible atrophy of the eye muscles, which is one reason that I like the eye rolling exercises the most, which have other benefits to vision by themselves.
