Why You’re Waking Up In The Middle Of The Night And How To Get Better Sleep

Our circadian rhythm is our body’s innate clock that tells us when to wake up and when to go to sleep. Unfortunately, our modern lifestyle can really throw off this clock and the consequences are steep, resulting in poor sleep, or worse yet, reduced sleep that carries over to every aspect of our lives.

In today’s episode, I talk with Drs. Todd LePine, Andrew Huberman, and Roger Seheult about why your circadian rhythm matters, how to start your day off right, and ways to reprogram your body clock. Dr. Todd LePine graduated from Dartmouth Medical School and is board certified in internal medicine, specializing in integrative Functional Medicine. He is an Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner. Prior to joining The UltraWellness Center, he worked as a physician at Canyon Ranch in Lenox, MA, for 10 years.

Dr. LePine’s focus at The UltraWellness Center is to help his patients achieve optimal health and vitality by restoring the natural balance to both the mind and the body. Dr. Andrew Huberman is a McKnight Foundation and Pew Foundation Fellow and was awarded the Cogan Award in 2017, which is given to the scientist making the largest discoveries in the study of vision. His lab’s most recent work focuses on the influence of vision and respiration on human performance and brain states such as fear and courage. Work from the Huberman Laboratory at Stanford University School of Medicine has been published in top journals including Nature, Science, and Cell and has been featured in TIME, BBC, Scientific American, Discover, and other top media outlets.

Dr. Roger Seheult is currently an associate clinical professor at the University of California, Riverside School of Medicine, and an assistant clinical professor at the School of Medicine and Allied Health at Loma Linda University. Dr. Seheult is quadruple board certified in internal medicine, pulmonary diseases, critical-care medicine, and sleep medicine through the American Board of Internal Medicine. He is also the cofounder of MedCram, an online medical education company that helps healthcare professionals and laypeople understand medical topics clearly.
