How to Harness the Power of Clock Genes to Lose Weight, Optimize Your Workout and Finally Get a Good Night’s Sleep
ABOUT THE BOOK
CHANGE YOUR SCHEDULE, CHANGE YOUR LIFE
Does it sound like magic? It’s not. We’ve all heard of circadian rhythms —those biological processes that give us jet lag and make us night owls or early birds.
But few of us know just how profoundly these diurnal patterns affect our overall health.
Bad habits like skipping meals, squeezing in workouts when it’s convenient, working late into the night to maximize productivity and then trying to “catch up” on sleep during the weekend disrupt our natural cycles.
“A fascinating look into the scientific validation of our natural circadian rhythms. Dr. Kshirsagar gives us insight into the Ayurvedic wisdom regarding healthy daily routine and gives practical tips on aligning ourselves with these rhythms for optimal health.”
What exactly is chronobiology and how does it affect your body?
What are circadian disruptions and how do they cause lifestyle diseases?
Timing is everything
USING YOUR BODY’S INTERNAL CLOCK
Timing is everything when it comes to healthy digestion, restful sleep and good fitness. The good news is there’s not a lot of guesswork: there is an optimal schedule for health.
In Change Your Schedule, Change Your Life you will learn strategies to tap into the wellness potential of your own body type.
What is the unique insight Ayurveda brings to chronobiology?
How is our poor lifestyle affecting us on an epigenetic level, leading to chronic disease?
How Your Body Tells Time
YOUR BODY ALWAYS KNOWS WHAT TIME IT IS, EVEN IF YOU DON’T
“Many body tissues have their own timetables organized by cyclic oscillations in the expression of a network of numerous ‘clock genes.’ “The entire body is a clock,” says Derh-Jan director of the Surrey Sleep Research Centre in Guildford. UK. “It’s a house with clocks in every room and every corner. yet in one way or another they work in an organized way.”The timing of all these various ‘peripheral oscillators’ can profoundly affect metabolic activity immune cell proliferation and numerous other critical functions. But there is a central pacemaker that gives the body a sense of the time of day: the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), a group of neurons in the hypothalamus.”
—Chronobiology: Stepping out of time by Michael Eisenstein, Nature International Weekly Journal of Science
“Every animal and plant on the planet— even certain bacteria—has evolved with… cellular oscillations. They dictate hundreds of other crucial processes, turning energy on and off in 24-hour cycles. They orchestrate our daily peak rhythms for things like cognition. fat synthesis. and even hair growth.These internal clocks. which biologists are just starting to research and understand in detail. are constantly syncing based on the food we eat. our exercise routines, social interactions, and light patterns. And whether we know it or not, we’re constantly working against them.”
-Your schedule could be killing you: Modern lifestyles are at war with the way our bodies evolved to function by Leslie Kaufman , Popular Science Magazine
What happens when you superimpose Ayurveda's dosha clock with chronobiological findings?
A key phrase is "The right thing at the right time." But how do I know what's right for me?
The latest research in Chronobiology clearly shows how our physical, mental, and emotional health are affected by natural rhythms. The timing of meals, exercise and sleep is more important than your work schedule. I advise people to follow the cycles of Nature for a healthy and happy life.
