Researchers in Germany have discovered why sleep can be the best medicine.
“According to a new study published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine (February 12, 2019), sleep improves the potential ability of some of the body’s immune cells (namely T cells) to attach to their targets and help fight infection.
This is especially relevant in light of the high prevalence of sleep disorders and conditions characterized by impaired sleep, such as depression, chronic stress, aging, and shift work”
In clinic, sleep is often one of the first things that l focus on. In my opinion, the importance of having adequate time for the body to rest and repair, psychologically and physically, should not be underestimated.
Wishing you wellness,
