03: SLEEP! Dr. Megan Saunders

Dr. Megan Saunders

Dr. Megan Saunders returns to Learn True Health to discuss a very important part of our health: Sleep.  “Sleep is not a luxury, it is a requirement.” The four foundations of health are good nutrition, a healthy emotional state (feeling fulfilled), exercising the body, and getting good sleep.

Sometimes stress gets the better of you and keeps you awake. Dr. Megan says you need to process the stress of anger or depression in a way that’s appropriate.

It doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t get angry about something, but if it’s an emotion that you are unable to process and it’s keeping you up at night, then that should be addressed.

It’s understandable that parents who also have careers, for instance, stay up late because they want personal time to themselves to watch TV or read a book. But if we do that consistently we are stealing snooze time from ourselves.


Dr. Megan describes the processes performed by the body while we’re asleep, all of which are crucial to our health when we are awake.  People who have difficulty falling asleep have different health issues than those who fall asleep easily but wake after a few hours and can’t fall asleep again.

After listening to this podcast you will undoubtedly want to learn more about how you can obtain a restful sleep, night after night.

Here’s What You’ll Discover:

Health AH-HA Moment:

The body creates symptoms because it’s the only language the body can speak.
