Immune Health Series Part 1: Prioritize Sleep

I am kicking off a 4 part series on immune system health to help us all stay healthy during this time of uncertainty.


When it comes to immune health, what we often forget about is the importance of sleep. IT MUST BE A PRIORITY for each one of us!


I've discussed sleep in detail on the blog numerous times, but it bears repeating. Not getting enough sleep (especially over the course of days, weeks, months, or even years) is NOT good for our hormonal health, as well as our body's general health. Our organs need sleep to rejuvenate and repair. Sleep is when these important processes take place, but if we are depriving our bodies of sleep, we start to create issues elsewhere in the body. Our stress, thyroid, and sex hormones will be impacted, as will our digestive and mental health.


How do you improve your sleep? Control your blood sugar, eat a PFC balanced diet, exercise and move your body regularly, and follow the tips I outlined in these previous posts on sleep:


The Importance of Sleep

Building a Sleep Routine

Troubleshooting Falling Asleep

Troubleshooting Staying Asleep


It's not easy to make sleep a priority, but when your health depends on it, it's a good time to start!
