Why a Good Night’s Sleep is Essential For Good Health

We now know that sleep is critical to our well-being. Sleep nourishes our bodies and is pivotal to our overall health. However, millions of people suffer from sleep disorders. It’s vital to take action if you’re one of them, as over time, sleep deprivation can lead to negative health outcomes.

Speak to one of our doctors today at (305) 400 -0005 and learn more about what NuLife Institute can do to help you sleep better.

What Happens When We Don’t Sleep Well?

In the short-term, lack of sleep can lead to:

  • Feeling tired during waking hours

  • Impaired memory and concentration

  • Being accident-prone

  • Low mood

  • Irritation

  • Increased appetite

If disordered sleep continues, the stakes become even higher. Possible implications include an increased risk of several major health concerns, including:

  • Cardiovascular disease

  • Depression

  • Obesity

  • Type 2 Diabetes

  • Morbidity

The scientific facts leave little room for doubt about how sleep is intrinsically linked with good health and longevity. But why?

The Cost of Sleep Deprivation

One key area of study is the link between sleep deprivation and inflammation. Experts believe that lack of sleep can trigger the formation of plaque and is also linked to arterial thickening.

And what about the brain itself? Scientists studying Alzheimer’s Disease have been scrutinizing the link between brain health and sleep. During sleep, the flow of cerebrospinal fluid around the brain cells increases. This process helps to cleanse the brain of waste proteins.

We need our sleep. But what if you can’t sleep? There are many reasons – both physical and psychological – that prevent people from sleeping. Some of them – high caffeine intake, using screens late at night, or drinking too much alcohol – we can usually control.

But what about the other factors? Stress, the aging process, being overweight and hormonal activity can greatly affect sleep. Testosterone levels in men are linked to circadian rhythm – the physiological 2-hour cycle – and Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA).
