Feeling a little slow or lethargic? Get a good night’s sleep, it cleans your brain.Recent research published in the journal Science indicates that while we sleep our brain clears out metabolic waste products. The author of the study, Maiken Nedergaard MD, professor of Neurosurgery at University of Rochester Medical Center says “We need sleep to clean our brains, or else toxic waste accumulates.” Long bouts of poor sleep may lead to a buildup of the kinds of toxins seen in Alzheimer’s patients.
If you are having trouble getting a good night sleep, remember Acupuncture calms the mind, in order to drift off to a better nights sleep.
