Amyloid Plaques

Amyloid plaques.
You can Google it, but in short, these are the accumulations in the brain that are associated with Alzheimers disease and dementia.
Guess when the body does most of the housekeeping work to clear these bad guys out of the brain? During sleep. Proper, healthy sleep.
Sleep isn’t just about feeling rested. It’s about immunity. It’s about proper hormone release. It’s about your body being able to do the things it needs to do when you’re not asleep.
If you don’t sleep well, don’t accept it. If your child mouth breathes, snores, or grinds their teeth at night, don’t accept it. Find health care providers, coaches, and therapists that get it and will partner with you to make progress toward a healthier you.
