Easy Tips for Finally Getting Good Sleep with Dr. Jenny Tufenkian

Listen to “Easy Tips for Finally Getting Good Sleep with Dr. Jenny Tufenkian” on Spreaker.

Sleep problems are not exclusive to those of us experiencing autoimmune. It’s estimated that around 70 million people in the US alone suffer from sleep disorders. So I don’t have to tell you that lack of sleep affects our overall well-being, including clear thinking, work performance, weight gain, and the part little to no sleep play in the development of many disorders and disease.

In this episode, Dr. Jenny Tufenkian, a Naturopathic Physician and Functional Medicine Educator who teaches patients, students, and physicians to increase their understanding of complex chronic diseases, shares surprising causes of why we can’t sleep and how to solve them. For example:
• What to do if you’re great at falling asleep but can’t stay asleep,
• How lack of sleep creates havoc in the brain, including brain inflammation,
• How what you do when you first wake up will impact that night’s sleep
• Ways to create simple, ‘sweet’ sleep routines that start way before bedtime, such as when you eat, light exposure, and overseeing your circadian rhythm.
•We even talk about latent viruses, including c*vid, and how they can affect our sleep, plus so much more…

More About Our Guest: Dr. Jenny Tufenkian knows autoimmune; she has struggled with chronic fatigue syndrome – it’s taken her down twice, 17 years apart. She shares, “though it was miserable at the time, I now see it as a blessing, both for the insights those experiences gave me and for my transition to a completely healthy life. She has been a practicing naturopathic doctor for over 20 years, focusing on helping the chronically ill return to total health. Dr. Jenny, as we lovingly call her, taught at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine and now owns a naturopathic clinic where she serves as its head doctor.
