    Can eating those recommended healthy foods replace the sleeping habit. At the back of mind, how about those nocturnal persons who work at night. Is there any replacements to that since they can’t sleep at 10pm. Or is this a case to case basis. Anyway, i found this an interesting topic. Thank you for posting this one. All the best.

      Eating healthy foods and expecting to kick the habit of sleeping late is like expecting a person wearing a white robe for a change to become a saint….. it doesnt work that way.

      Eating healthy foods is a choice and so is sleeping early to be healthy. the old saying early to bed and early to rise makes jack healthy, wealthy and wise holds true here. and if jack were to eat healthier, he would be all the more better in every way.

      Sleeping at 10 is working according to the Biological clock. A case in point are the call centre executives who sleep late as they need to work on the time zones of a company in a distant land. I have had the experience of changing the shift timings of a group of call centre executives who experienced much better health as a result of conforming to the Biological Clock. Therefore, the science is applicable to one and all..

          Good that your health is ok as of now. Every body constitution has a breaking point. Some people are stronger in their core. But I suggest that you should not be eager to discover your breaking point.

          The body fights to maintain harmony with the Biological clock by keeping the working harmony of its organs with nature. And when it is not able to do so any more, ailments manifest.

          We are driven by nature according to the Biological Clock. Each one of us feel sleepy at out own time zones nearing 9.25-9.45 pm. This is the time when the body wants to unwind and recoup itself to repair damaged cells and help to serve your commands the next day. But if you push it beyond this time, the body is not able to recover itself. Moreover, Acids from the glands (especially the adrenalin glands that secretes lactic acid to provide energy)increase as both and mind and body are agitated. This destroys tissues.

          Also the Liver, Gall Bladder and the Small Intestines secrete acids that enter the blood stream. This goes into circulation and destroys the blood tissue thereby reducing our immunity. Ailments like colds, Allergic sneezing, Running nose, indigestion, Gases in the abdomen as well as obesity (liver becoming weak as a result), skin irritation and rashes (including eczema and psoriasis) are side effects.
