Good Sleep


Good rest and sound sleep is very important. 

If u don't sleep well,
The toxins in your body will accumulate,affecting your health and your mood.

The main causes of liver damage
are:
1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are the main cause..
2. Not urinating in the morning.
3. Too much eating.
4. Skipping breakfast.
5. Consuming too much medication.
6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, and artificial sweetener.
7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil. As much as possible reduce cooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best

Cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if the body is very fit.
8. Consuming overly done foods also add to the burden of liver. Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried

Veggies should be finished in one sitting, do not store.

We have to adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining good eating habits is very important for our body to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals.

Because,

 
Evening 9 - 11pm: is the time for eliminating unnecessary/ toxic chemicals (de- toxification) from the antibody system (lymph nodes). This time duration should be spent by relaxing or listening to music. If during this time a housewife is still in a un relaxed state such as washing the dishes or monitoring children doing their homework, this will have a negative impact on her health.

Night at 11pm - 1am:
The de-toxification process in the liver, and ideally should be done in a deep sleep state.

 
Early morning 1 - 3am: de-toxification process in the gall, also ideally done in a deep sleep state.

Early morning 3 - 5am:
de-toxification in the lungs. Therefore there will sometimes be a severe cough for cough sufferers during this time. Since the de-toxification process had reached the respiratory tract, there is no need to take cough medicine so as not to interfere with toxin removal process.


Morning 5 - 7am:
de-toxification in the colon, you should empty your bowel.

Morning 7 - 9am:
Absorption of nutrients in the small intestine, you should be having breakfast at this time. Breakfast should be earlier, before 6:30am, for those who are sick. Breakfast before 7:30am is very beneficial to those wanting to stay fit. Those who always skip breakfast, they should change their habits, and it is still better to eat breakfast late until 9 -10am rather than no meal at all. Sleeping so late and waking up too late will disrupt the process of removing unnecessary chemicals.

 
Midnight to 4am is the time when the bone marrow produces blood.

Therefore, have a good sleep and don't sleep late.

Jet Lag Disorder


Let not the jet lag give you a lag!

Jet lag disorder, also called as desynchronosis, is a temporary sleep disorder that can affect anyone who quickly travels across multiple time zones.
 

What could cause this?
Jet lag can be caused anytime one travels across two or more time zones. Jet lag occurs because crossing multiple time zones puts the body clock out of synchronization, as it experiences daylight and darkness contrary to the rhythms to which it has grown accustomed - the body's natural pattern is upset, as the rhythms that dictate times for eating, sleeping, hormone regulation and body temperature variations, no longer correspond to the environment nor to each other. The condition is not linked to the length of flight, but to the trans-meridian (west-east) distance travelled.

 
What are the symptoms of Jet lag?
The symptoms of jet lag can vary, depending on the amount of time zone alteration. People may experience only one symptom or multiple symptoms.
The symptoms include:

• Headaches
• Disturbed sleep - such as insomnia, early waking or excessive sleepiness
• Fatigue
• Muscle soreness
• Disorientation
• Irritability
• Mild depression
• Constipation or diarrhea
• Dehydration

The condition of jet lag may last many days, and recovery depends on the time zones crossed and usually would take a day to overcome the symptoms.
 

What are the remedies?
Since the experience of jet lag varies among individuals, it is difficult to assess the efficacy of any single remedy. Some of them are:
• Gradual adjustments in the sleep schedule over the course of several days, while maintaining its regular length of 7-8 hours can reduce fatigue and prevent depression.
• Use sunlight to reset your internal clock. It's the most powerful natural tool for regulating the sleep-wake cycle. The results are even better if light exposure is combined with exercise such as walking or jogging.
• Using caffeine, such as in beverages like coffee, espresso and soft drinks may help offset daytime sleepiness. However, it's best to time caffeine use, as it may make it even more difficult to fall asleep or sleep well at night.

Is there a treatment?

Jet lag usually requires no treatment. However, if you're a frequent traveller bothered by jet lag, consult your doctor.
   

Can I prevent Jet lag?
A few basic steps may help prevent jet lag or reduce its effects:
• Try to arrive a few days early to give your body a chance to adjust.
• Get plenty of rest before your trip.
• Gradually adjust your sleep and eating schedules to the time of your destination, for a few days before your departure.
• Wear sunglasses and avoid bright light, allow as much sunlight as possible in the mornings or late afternoon for the first few days.
• Set your watch to the new time before you leave. Once you reach your destination, try not to sleep until the local night time, no matter how tired you are.
• Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water before, during and after your flight to counteract the dehydrating effects of dry cabin air. Dehydration can make jet lag symptoms worse. For the same reason, avoid alcohol and caffeine, both of which dehydrate you further.
• Try to sleep on the plane if it's night time at your destination. Earplugs, headphones and eye masks can help block out noise and light. If it's daytime where you're going, resist the urge to sleep.

 
Get set for a healthy travel and enjoy it by keeping these in mind!
