    walkinlooove answered the Question: How do you alleviate caffeine headaches?

    Also important--what kind of coffee were you drinking? Places like Starbucks have almost twice as much caffeine in their coffees as a place like Dunkin' Donuts. One strategy may be to whittle down on caffeine intake by switching coffee brands to something with a little less. A quick google search can show you caffeine levels. If you can't stand anything but your current brand of coffee, try doing half caffeinated and half decaf. My stepdad whittled down his caffeine habit (which was really intense) by drinking "half-caf" for a while, and then limiting the number of half-cafs per day. I also switched to tea--first some with caffeine, then caffeine-free. Now I mostly just drink water. :)

    I took melatonin for quite a while a few years back, and never had trouble sleeping when I went off of it. I found it to be a great natural sleep aid for those nights when I needed extra help falling asleep. However, in the long run, changing my sleeping/bedtime habits helped a lot more than the pills! I used some sleep meditations, which helped me learn how to "shut down" my mind when I'm ready for bed. I also made a hard & fast rule: the bed is for sleeping, NOT reading on, doing homework on, or being on the laptop, etc. Once I made that change, my body realized that when it's in bed, it's time for sleep!

    the best argument I've ever read against the scale is in this article (the pictures alone speak for themselves): http://everydaypaleo.com/2011...

    A family member just moved and wanted to get rid of some stuff, so he gave me a giant bottle of flaxseed oil that he hasn't touched. I already take a multi, B complex, vitamin D, and fish oil every day. Is taking the flaxseed oil going to be redundant, or will it add something to my supplement regimen?
