A person spends a third of their life sleeping. Therefore, Traditional Chinese Medicine claims sleep as the least expensive and most widely available method of staying healthy, one that also promotes longevity. Western medicine appreciates the value of sleep as well, and recognises it as a basic requirement of the human body. It is crucial for the health of both body and mind. Sleep regenerates the body, hence its deficiencies have a negative impact on our mood and looks. One of the main functions of sleep is ”turning off” the activity of the central nervous system. During this commences its ”restoration”, i.e. the brain repairs any ”damage” and organises and memorises new information. This implies sleep cleanses the brain, and during it various biochemical mechanisms are activated, which are responsible for long-term memory. Sleep also affects the function of the immune system and secretion of certain hormones, e.g. growth hormone. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, toxins are eliminated during sleep through the action of the lymphatic system, liver, lungs and the large intestine. Each of the elimination stages occurs between 9pm and 7am – in two-hour cycles, it is therefore important the sleep is not disturbed during this period. Otherwise, the toxins will not be fully eliminated, and this will reflect on how we feel.
