Why Sleep is More Important Than Diet—Optimize it Today!

Episode 487


Sleep is medicine, just like food is medicine, and may even be more important than diet. Sleep regulates your brain function, helps stabilize your mood, and is a time when the body heals. It’s absolutely critical for a healthy body. Sadly, over 70 million Americans don’t sleep well. This lack of sleep is degrading our health. We feel it in our energy level, it’s hard to focus, and it can even contribute to chronic illness.

We discuss why sleep is so important, how we can get better sleep including tips to create your own sleep ritual, and answer a variety of questions from our community.
