Sleep Better

Research we Recommend, Sleep, Uncategorized
A while ago we posted about getting your best sleep and we had some great tips for getting a better nights sleep, I'm going to reiterate a few of those. Don't eat or drink 2 hours before bedtime, your body will remain in active digestion mode and and you may get woken up earlier than you intended to go to the bathroom. Get adjusted!

I was biased by the black and white TV images of my youth of individuals standing with belts wrapped around their belly, shaking them to lose weight. So years later, when I would see all these fancy vibration machines being displayed at seminars and conventions, I let that early bias prevent me from investigating their benefits. That is until I was at a seminar where a colleague, whom I respected, was one of the speakers of an afternoon session, talking about vibration therapy. He talked about mechan-oreceptor stimulation, neurol-ogical reinte-gration, lymphatic drainage and detoxification, improved blood flow and circulation, and a lot of other principles that I deal…
