We have to turn off all lights to sleep to signal our pituitary glands in the brain that it is night time which will kick in the natural rhythm of day and night. When we get adequate sleep, our brain and body can detox or get rid of toxins.
So inadequate sleep can lead to other health issues including obesity.
When we have parasites and other bad microbes, they disrupt the natural rhythms of day and night and we don’t get adequate sleep at night.
Some of our Parkinson’s clients wake up in the middle of the night to snack of ice cream, it is the bad microbes in the gut telling them to consume sugar and disrupting the biorhythm of night and day so that we can sleep at night.
