Most people want to live healthier lives, right?  Everyone knows that sleep’s important right. But why does sleep happen? How does it happen? How does it work to regenerate us?.  In this episode of the Beastified! podcast, Dr Jack Kruse talks about and gives us a really in depth look into sleep.  Prepare to be blown away with his knowledge and inspired to incorporate some of these practices into your own life so you can sleep better.

Dr. Jack Kruse is a respected neurosurgeon and CEO of Optimized Life, a health and wellness company dedicated to helping patients avoid the healthcare burdens we typically encounter as we age. He is a member of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, the Congress of Neurologic Surgeons, and Age Management Medicine Group. As a neurosurgeon, Dr. Kruse’s research has been published in respected dental and medical journals. His fantastic and so in depth popular blog, JackKruse.com gets over 150,000 unique worldwide visitors per month. 

EPISODE BREAKDOWN:

  • What is sleep? And why is it important?
  • Is there a maximum hours length of sleep needed or a minimum number of hours needed?
  • Can sleep help prevent degenerative aging diseases and cancer?
  • Correlation between melatonin and gaining a night of good healthy sleep?
  • Does blue light at night cause melatonin production to cease?
  • The effects of blue light on the pineal gland?
  • How does sleep work to regenerate us?
  • Is sleep the primordial condition or do think it evolved as we did?

  • Challenge:  30 days of natural Light, The aim of the challenge is to get outside in the sun or just the natural light of the outdoors. May sound easy but something many neglect. 

TAKE ACTION:

This will be an eye-opening experiment. When you do this Challenge, please post a comment or email to let us know how it went.

During waking hours, electrical signals travel from dendrites — antenna-like projections at one end of the cell — through the cell body. From the cell body, they then travel the length of the axon, a single long projection at the other end of the cell. This electrical signal stimulates the release of chemicals at the end of the axon, which bind to dendrites on adjacent cells, stimulating these recipient cells to fire electrical signals, and so on. When groups of cells repeatedly fire in this way, the electrical signals increase in intensity. Dr. Bukalo and her team examined electrical signals that traveled in reverse from the cell’s axon, to the cell body and out its many dendrites. The reverse firing, depicted in this diagram, happens during sleep and at rest, appearing to reset the cell and priming it to learn new information Source JackKruse.com
