Getting enough sleep is critical for the body’s healing and recovery process. All the benefits we hope to gain from good nutrition, diet, and exercise won’t make that much difference on our health if we are sleep-deprived. When we talk about sleep, we mean the “good” or “deep” kind of sleep that offers optimum health benefits. In this episode, Dr. Jockers shares a clear picture of how a low-quality sleep looks compared to a good quality, deep sleep. He explains what REM sleep is, how it is achieved, and the factors that need to be addressed that are impacting the quality of our sleep.

“Deep sleep is really important for physical repair. REM sleep is when really deep detoxification of the brain occurs.”

– Dr. David Jockers
