Sleep is an important part of our living. A comfortable sleep is even more crucial. Whenever you fail to get a good night’s sleep, the next day becomes a mesh of chaos and irritation. The video given below shows you the best way to sleep. It turns out that the position in which you sleep is integral as well.
A proper sleeping position not only gives you a good rest, but it also benefits your health, skin, and digestion. Dr. John Douillard in the clip below says that sleeping on the left side is very beneficial. While sleeping on the right side can aggravate digestion problems, sleeping on the back could be downright dangerous for those who suffer from asthma or sleep apnea. Sleeping on the left side helps in better circulation back to the heart, proper digestion, facilitation of lymphatic drainage, and others.
The majority of people are unaware of the fact that the position for sleeping plays an important role in the overall health.
Even in the ancient era, monks used to lie down after meals in order to help digestion.
The Ayurvedic medicine, which is the oldest Oriental medicine, confirms this as well, and it recommends sleeping on the left side of the body.
Ayurveda suggests that there are numerous reasons why you should practice sleeping on the left side, since it:
- improves digestion,
- contributes to the healthy function of the spleen,
- improved elimination of dangerous substances,
- supports lymphatic drainage,
- promotes blood flow to the heart,
- contributing to a freer bile flow ,
- Aids the heart to send blood down.
