Physiology Before Pharmacology for Achieving Restorative Sleep and Enhanced Mood, a webinar presentation by Russell Jaffe, MD, PhD, CCN

ASHBURN, VA – In an upcoming webinar presentation sponsored by PERQUE Integrative Health, Functional Medicine thought-leader Dr. Russell Jaffe will review the physiology of sleep and mood and provide viewers with an actionable Physiology First approach to better sleep and mood.

Approximately 70 million US adults suffer from some type of sleep disorder, with insomnia being the most common. Up to 30% of adults report short-term bouts of insomnia, and 10% suffer from chronic insomnia. Because the body repairs and restores during sleep, an insufficient quality and/or quantity of sleep can have adverse consequences on overall health and well-being. While pharmacologic treatment options abound, there are safer and more effective alternatives.

Dr. Jaffe will explore the underlying physiology of sleep, including the hormonal cycles involved in circadian rhythm regulation, and will review the role of toxins and detoxification in sleep and mood. He will recommend the “must-have” nutrients and a number of simple diet and lifestyle changes that can positively impact, mood, sleep and overall health.

“The human body is capable of amazing renewal and resilience when obstacles are removed,” said physician and scientist, Russell Jaffe. “My goal in this presentation is to offer practitioners simple, actionable approaches they can implement immediately to help their patients achieve quality restorative sleep and all the health and mood benefits that come with better sleep.”
