Sleep: The New Health Frontier

The take-away

Back to Lynn Mitchell, the cancer patient. She has changed her sleep habits, does breathing exercises, and now for the last several months, is getting up to seven hours of sleep. Says Lynn, “I am alert in the morning, am more awake, and I feel peppier.” She is better able to deal with her cancer and its symptoms. Good news, her brain tumor is decreasing in size, and the cancer spots on her lungs are few and far between.

Better sleep is helping her fight her cancers? Probably. The proper amount of sleep for you and for Lynn is the answer to better health.
