Sleep. We all need it and yet for many of us a good nights rest is hard to come by. There are a multitude of reasons as to why someone may be having trouble sleeping. Everything from stress to diet, exercise, and our overall general health has some type of impact on the quality and quantity we’re able to get.

While it’s common knowledge that sleeping is vitally crucial, as it keeps us mentally and physically balanced, it’s not so well known that the position we tend to sleep in can also greatly affect our health. People sleep in all sorts of different positions, the most common being on either the back, right side, left side, or curled up in the fetal position. Some of these ways can end up impacting us negatively, such as sleeping on one’s right side. This position can actually worsen and aggravate digestive problems and lead to other health issues that lower our quality of sleep.

The absolute best position you can sleep in is on your left side. In terms of the overall benefits that it has on bodily health, it’s better than every single one of the alternative ways in which we can rest our weary bodies! Below are some of the positive impacts that laying on your left side can result in:

Improved Digestion- when you sleep on your left side your body is in a position where it’s better able to efficiently dispose of the nasty, unwanted toxins that build up inside it during the day. At the same time, it’s also able to extract and use the nutrients your body needs to function its best, both faster and more efficiently as well.

Improved Cardiovascular Health and Circulation- You put less stress on your heart and cardiovascular system when you lay on your left side because the heart is essentially pumping blood through your body in a downhill manner. Your heart doesn’t have to work so hard because the blood flows more efficiently this way, which leads to better overall circulation and less strain in general.

Improved Lymphatic Drainage and Spleen Function- Many of us overlook how important it is to eliminate the toxins, wastes, and unwanted or unusable substances that build up inside our bodies over time. Sleeping on the left side helps to facilitate their removal because bile and other types of wastes are able to travel more freely through our bodies via this position. In the end, this leads to increased lymphatic drainage and thus more toxins leaving our bodies, all while keeping the stress and impact on our system at a minimum.

To hear and learn more about all of the above benefits in much greater detail be sure to check out the accompanying video. In it Dr. John Douillard goes over and explains each one of them comprehensively and covers how sleeping on your left side can make a huge difference in your life. If sleeping on the left side can improve your health in more than just one way, plus lead to better overall sleep, there’s no excuse for not laying down that way! If you don’t sleep on the left side already then try making the switch tonight!
