Do You Have Social Jet Lag?

Bonnie and Steve: Social jet lag, which occurs when you go to bed and wake up later on weekends than during the week, is associated with poorer health, worse mood, and increased sleepiness and fatigue. Each hour of social jet lag is associated with an 11 percent increase in the likelihood of heart disease. These effects are independent of sleep duration and insomnia symptoms, which are related to both social jet lag and health.

This suggests that a regular sleep schedule may be an effective, relatively simple, and inexpensive preventative treatment for heart disease as well as many other health problems.

The American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommends that adults should sleep at least 7 or more hours per night on a regular basis to promote optimal health. In addition to adequate duration, healthy sleep requires good quality, appropriate timing and regularity.

This makes sense, especially if you look at a study just presented at the American Academy of Neurology's annual meeting, suggesting that even mildly insufficient sleep duration can have an adverse effect on health. Getting just 1 hour less than the optimum sleep duration was associated with 60% to 80% increased odds of symptoms of depression, hopelessness, nervousness, and feeling restless or fidgety.

Results from the May issue of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine show that women are more likely than men to have more severe symptoms of depression, trouble sleeping at night, and excessive daytime sleepiness. Women also have a higher degree of difficulty concentrating and remembering things due to sleepiness or tiredness.

Keeping a regular sleep pattern contributes to the happiness and well-being of college students. Results from a study in Sleep show that higher sleep regularity was significantly related to higher morning and evening happiness, healthiness and calmness during the week.
Genetics
Genetic Wellness Testing & Analysis
(click image for video introduction)

Bonnie and Steve:It only takes a few simple steps to get individualized genetic nutritional support. Test your genome. We translate the results in a way you can understand. We target your individualized needs with nutritional support that can be easily implemented.

Pure Genomics helps the patient with:
  1. Reaffirmation for why existing patients should continue to adhere to their optimal diet and lifestyle. Genes are the deepest layer of individualization. When a patient is doing incredibly well despite horrible genetic deficiencies, it is a strong deterrent to fall off the wagon.
  2. Creates the last thrust of motivation for a patient who is having trouble adhering to their diet and lifestyle protocol.
  3. Provides incredible proof for prevention of family disease history. Connects the dots for many of our patients.
  4. Is a strong component for new patient screenings, especially for methylation, detoxification, antioxidant defense, weight management, metabolic health, and essential fatty acid, vitamin A, and vitamin D absorption.

Current Pure Genomics Users
Request by email that we send your updated results. This is free for NCI Well Connect Members.

No, you do not have to send us your 23andMe data again. In fact, you never have to! Once it is in our database, it stays there. And one thing about your genetic data...it does not change. The only thing that changes is how your diet and lifestyle choices affect the expression of your genes.

If you have never used Pure Genomics before, please refer to this document which will answer all your questions about how to provide us with your genetic data and get started.
