Continuing with our theme of immune defense, we are discussing the importance of sleep as it pertains to immune support. Research has shown that without achieving the optimal hours of sleep each night, we are unable to perform routine body processes such as the synthesis of proteins and protective cytokines, both of which contribute to the health of our adaptive and innate immune systems. Luckily, there are herbs such as Cannabis, Chamomile, Valerian, and California Poppy that grow locally and can support us in realizing our ideal nights rest. We also carry products from the bioregional, local company Sun God Medicinals, who have formulated an entire line of tinctures and teas, appropriately named Hypnos after the Greek god of sleep, indicated to support healthy sleep patterns. Other ways to promote restful slumber is to try your hardest to refrain from using any screened technology close to bedtime, creating a nightly routine to get you into bed faster, and writing down your lingering thoughts on a list to be addressed the next day. Sleep is an integral piece to the ideal picture of health as a whole, so if you have any questions about ways to support your sleep, please reach out to any of our trained associates or book an appointment with our clinical herbalist.
