Remembering Or Forgetting Dreams

What Causes Forgetting Dreams?

Forgetting dreams can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'minor' to 'needs attention'.  Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose forgetting dreams, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "forgetting dreams" as a symptom.  Here are six possibilities:
  • Liver Congestion
  • Low Melatonin
  • Vitamin B6 Need
  • Vitamin B-Complex Need
  • DMAE Need
  • Pyroluria

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
reduced desire to eat breakfast
pale stools
carpal tunnel syndrome
occasional unexplained nausea
current exposure to solvents
frequent runny nose
cysts in breasts
chronic nausea
Heberden's nodes
joint pain/swelling/stiffness
pain between shoulder blades
somewhat disturbed sleep
... and more than 60 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of forgetting dreams:
Cause Probability Status
DMAE Need 99% Confirm
Pyroluria 53% Possible
Vitamin B6 Need 27% Unlikely
Low Melatonin 4% Ruled out
Vitamin B-Complex Need 2% Ruled out
Liver Congestion 1% Ruled out
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

In the Sleep-Related Symptoms section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™ will ask the following question about remembering or forgetting dreams:
Do you remember your dreams when you wake up?
Possible responses:
→ I almost always remember my dreams clearly
→ Average - sometimes I remember / don't know
→ I almost always forget them quickly
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either remembering dreams or forgetting dreams, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as:
DMAE Requirement

DMAE causes dreams to become more lucid/vivid.

Low Melatonin Level

Low melatonin levels can cause poor dream recall.
