How Gut Health Impacts Sleep | This episode is brought to you by Perfect Keto
Getting quality sleep is one of the most important things we can do for our overall health and well-being. We know that things like getting outside first thing in the morning, going to sleep and waking at the same time each day, and putting away our devices one or two hours before bed can help ensure quality sleep. But did you know that the health of your gut microbiome also plays an important role in sleep quality?
In this minisode, Dr. Hyman speaks with Shawn Stevenson about how the microbiome can affect sleep, and he also speaks with Dr. Elizabeth Boham about the Functional Medicine approach to optimizing gut health.
