Sleep

Sleep is very crucial aspect of our life. Yet, we compromise it knowingly or unknowingly.

Impact created by 6 months of high fat diet is experienced by body by just compromising sleep of one day!

No wonder why there is rise of viral infection (including vector based dengue and bacterial typhoid) post Navaratri in my city every year. People compromise sleep without taking proper rest, eat anything and everything, turning nine nights of Sadhana into extravaganza! Such activities are too early during Navaratri (are okay for Diwali).

Compromised sleep + Garrulous eating + garba – No SAdhana – No upavas = Typical post-Navaratri low immunity spell.

My personal observation: One of the major cause of viral infection in children is sleep deprivation. Sleep deprivation is an intense stressful event for body. Critical recovery process hampered.

When they body’s Vayu element is deranged, sleep is deprived or sleep reduces. If this happens in age below 60, it is actually a sign of rapid aging. Observe: Old age people’s sleep is very less. And that is due to derangement of Vayu is natural in old age.

Even if you have sleep disorder, take enough rest. Lie down on the bed and rest for at least 6 hrs.

When the body becomes less sensitive to insulin (i.e., “insulin resistant”), it needs to produce more insulin to keep blood sugar stable. This may eventually lead to Type 2 diabetes, a disease where the body’s insulin response doesn’t work properly and there is too much sugar in the blood. Diabetes is associated with a number of serious complications, including heart disease. Individuals with obesity are more likely to develop insulin resistance and subsequently, diabetes.

“Research has shown that sleep deficiency and a high-fat diet both lead to impaired insulin sensitivity, but it was previously unknown which leads to more severe insulin resistance,” said Dr. Broussard. “Our study suggests that one night of total sleep deprivation may be as detrimental to insulin sensitivity as six months on a high-fat diet. This research demonstrates the importance of adequate sleep in maintaining blood sugar levels and reducing risk for metabolic diseases like obesity and diabetes.”

Take care.

One Night of Poor Sleep Could Equal Six Months on a High-Fat Diet, Study Shows

New study in canines examines the effect of sleep loss on insulin sensitivity

  1. The rate of dengue has been increasing steadily over the last couple of years even in cities where there were no cases ? What do you think is the reason for this ?
