Dr. Doug’s Top 10: Protecting Your Sleep

This summer, we are revisiting the ten posts I believe have the greatest impact on day-to-day health. The choices are based on what we have seen in real life patients of the practice and the continuing unfolding of supportive scientific literature.

It is amazing how God puts us together. One of the things I have found fascinating are the paradoxes in health. To me, there is no greater contrast in the nervous system than between the need for sleep and activity. Activity (movement) is literally food for your brain: the less active you are, the less brain activity you have. In contrast, if you are active but don’t get enough sleep, you burn out the neurotransmitters in your brain! You need both rest and activity.

This post helps paint a good overview of how to create a space for healthy sleep in your life.

Over all the years of practice (31) and living in my body (55!), one of the single most important factors for physical healthy I have found is what you put in your mouth.

Let food be thy medicine and let medicine be thy food.
- Hippocrates

There is so much research linking good health to a good diet and bad health to a poor one that I don’t think anyone would dispute his quote today. The problem is with practicing it! The Paleo Summary and Cheat Sheet is a good place to start.

Dr. Doug’s Top 10: Minimal Effective Dose

This summer, we are revisiting the ten posts I believe have the greatest impact on day-to-day health. The choices are based on what we have seen in real life patients of the practice and the continuing unfolding of supportive scientific literature.

Hot on the heels of Margin is the concept of Minimal Effective Dose (M.E.D.). Once you have established what is important, M.E.D. can help you start to integrate it into your life in a sustainable fashion.
