What Time Should You Sleep??

By James Pang

Is there a best time to sleep? There is a saying that sleeping early and waking up early is good for your health. How true is that? Is it alright to sleep late and wake up late?

You actually have an amazing biological clock ticking inside your body. It is very precise. It helps to regulate your various body functions including your sleeping time.

From 11pm to 3am, most of your blood circulation concentrates in your liver. Your liver gets larger when filled with more blood. This is an important time when your body undergoes detoxification process. Your liver neutralizes and breaks down body toxins accumulated throughout the day.

 

However if you don’t sleep at this time, your liver cannot carry out this detoxification process smoothly.

  • If you sleep at 11pm, you have full 4 hours to detoxify your body.
  • If you sleep at 12am, you have 3 hours.
  • If you sleep at 1am, you have 2 hours.
  • And if you sleep at 2am, you only have 1 Hr to detoxify.

What if you sleep after 3am? Unfortunately, you won’t have any time to actually detoxify your body. If you continue with this sleeping pattern, these toxins will accumulate in your body over time. You know what happens next.

What if you sleep late and wake up late?

Have you tried going to bed very late at night? Did you realize you feel very tired the next day no matter how much you sleep ?

Sleeping late and waking up late is indeed very bad for your health. Besides not having enough time to detoxify your body, you will miss out other important body functions too.

From 3am to 5am, most blood circulation concentrates in your lung. What should you do at this moment? Well, you should exercise and breathe in fresh air. Take in good energy into your body, preferably in a garden. At this time, the air is very fresh with lots of beneficial negative ions.

From 5am to 7am, most blood circulation concentrates in your large intestine. What should you do at this moment? You should poop! Pass out all unwanted poop from your large intestine. Prepare your body to absorb more nutrients throughout the day.

From 7am to 9am, most blood circulation concentrates in your stomach. What should you do at this moment? Have your breakfast! This is your most important meal in a day. Make sure you have all the required nutrients from your breakfast. Not having breakfast causes lots of health problems for you in the future.

That’s the way to start your day

No wonder people living in villages or in farms are healthier. They sleep early and wake up early as they follow their natural biological clock.

If one follows this you’re sure to feel fresher and more energetic all day long.

Fatty Liver Disease

In Ayurveda, the liver is considered a fire – or pitta – organ, since it is essential to digestion and elimination. Therefore, the health of the liver requires balance in the pitta dosha to support the liver’s ability to flush toxins from the body. When the liver is overloaded with toxins like alcohol or fats, it will work too hard and burn too hot. This causes inflammation and problems throughout the body. Ayurvedic practitioners treat liver problems like fatty liver with a combination of dietary and lifestyle modifications and herbal remedies.
