Sleep is not rest. Sleep is the time that nature orchestrates a symphony of processes that incorporate the work you've performed into body and mind, and ready you for another day. Poor sleep  sets  in motion cardiovascular, metabolic and emotional disorders.


The body's nutrient use patterns are at the core of nutrition science, yet the steps that the body goes through to utilize its stored and ingested fuels in a prioritized sequence  is counter-intuitive and widely misunderstood by the public. Commercial products exploit this. 


Active  muscle has a basic role over and above the common function of "burning calories" for weight-loss. The entire mass of muscle can be either "on line" (active) or "off line" (sedentary). When muscle is off line, the body's sensitivity to insulin and its use of fuels is altered.

independent but integrated

Aside from the dire impacts of common sleep disorders such as sleep apnea on cardiovascular health, even young, healthy individuals shift their insulin and nutrient use patterns toward metabolic disorders with poor sleep. These effects accrue from poor sleep alone.

the link between

sleep & metabolism

Poor sleep shifts the body's fuel use preference to a pattern similar to stress. The hormone pattern favors increased hunger for fatty foods and increased snack frequency even while fat stores continue to be protected from use, and good lean tissue is broken down first. This cycle cannot be broken with "willpower"— it requires attention to sleep timing and quality, in conjunction with diet & exercise efforts.

night-shift gardening

emotional pruning

When it comes to our emotional wellbeing, sleep is a principle factor. Sleep processes act like nature's gardener, pruning out the clutter and nourishing important connections in the brain. How does the gardener know what to attend to? By our feeling-directed associations. Sleep restores our emotional  balance.


what does it really mean

to nourish

We integrate the three primary domains by addressing their seamless interactions in a shared physiology and metabolism. That is, after all, what nature does. Sleep is not an afterthought. Nutrition is not a diet. Exercise is not a weight-loss choice. When these issues are placed in their natural context— nourishment thrives.
