DrLullaby's founder, Lisa Medalie, PsyD, DBSM contributes to this Medical Daily Healthy Living article, explaining how taking vitamin B6 can help you remember your dreams and how rescripting/rewriting the ending to your nightmares can make them less scary.
Take Vitamin B6 To Boost Your Memory
Vitamin B6 has been linked to improved memory retention and better brain health, says Mayo Clinic. Dr Lisa Medalie, a sleep behavior specialist, said on The Dr. Oz Show that vitamin B6 supplements will improve your memory and help you remember your dreams because it increases the level of serotonin in the body, allowing you to have dream clarity as you sleep. Medalie suggest to take half of the vitamin in the morning and the other half in the evening.
Reduced Risk Of Obesity And Cancer Nightmares can cause panic, fear, and loss of a good night's sleep. According to the National Sleep Foundation, eight hours of sleep is suggested for normal, healthy adults. A recurring nightmare can lead to a series of health problems like obesity and cancer, said Medalie. To prevent these illnesses, she recommends a technique called rescripting — rewriting the ending to your nightmare. The outcome of your dream will change if you repeat the ending in your mind over and over again throughout the day. Facing your fears and controlling your dreams can provide you with clarity of your mind, body, and soul.
