Sleep is often taken for granted when people go looking for lifestyle changes that will make a dramatic difference in their health.
I should know. I’ve just discovered personally what happens when you push your body’s sleep deprivation limits too far.
There are many amazing transformations in your body that occur when you shut down for some shut eye.
In this show you’ll learn:
- all the amazing hormone dances that happen when we sleep
- the liver’s role during sleep
- how to stoke your fat-burning furnace during sleep
- the benefits of sleep for your immune system, adrenal glands, and mental clarity
- and the dangers of getting inadequate sleep
Joining Dr. Ritamarie on the show is Dr. Lindsey Berkson, hormone specialist. She will share how sleep affects your hormones which in turn affect your health.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and if you’re a vegan, vegetarian, raw food enthusiast, food allergy sufferer or just someone who wants to eat more healthfully and manage your weight, this is a challenging time of year.
What typically happens after you eat the rich, full course Thanksgiving meal that is the norm in most American families? Do you feel full of life, ready to go for a walk and appreciate the wonders of nature or do you want to collapse in a heap on the couch, bursting at the seams and feeling a bit sluggish?
Food temptations abound, as does pressure from often well meaning friends and family members who want to be sure you’re enjoying the bounty.
I know you want to keep your commitment to your healthy diet and lifestyle, yet you want to fit in, and enjoy the celebration with everyone else.
Maybe you’ve tried adapting traditional recipes, but haven’t been impressed with the results.
Or perhaps you’ve experimented with recipes from magazines or newspaper articles, but your friends and family members weren’t particularly impressed.
Dr. Ritamarie is here to help you stay on course this Thanksgiving and onward through the holiday season. This show will be chock full of tips for meals, and ideas on how to handle those family issues around not eating the typical Thanksgiving meals.
