  1. i found out how important light was when i was trying to deal with my hot flashes. i googled hot flashes and snps and found a study that found through GWAS that i had defects in my serotonin transporter genes that were associated with hot flashes, probably due to decreasing serotonin. now that my estrogen is dropping, so is my serotonin. SSRI’s help many women with hot flashes, so there is some link. i went on a search of how to increase serotonin naturally, thereby helping myself regulate my internal thermostat and helping increase melatonin production. i found through trial and error that the f.lux program on my imac was not enough to help me; neither were blue-blocking uvex glasses. i needed to stop caffeine, only exercise in the morning, get as much sunlight as possible, but especially morning light, have no cell phone or computer after 5:30pm only a tv screen at a fair distance from me, and avoid bright light from light bulbs after 5:30 pm, especially the refrigerator light bulb. i can also not eat a big protein mean at night. if i do these things, i will sleep fairly well. light and temperature (in the evening til bed time avoiding hot foods,hot showers, getting hot from exercise, etc) are key for me in getting a good sleep.
