Topic: Chronobiology & Ayurveda
Abstract: In 2017 Nobel prize was awarded to three physiologists who first discovered that cells inside organisms change their function based on the time of day. These physiologists spent decades studying how the circadian rhythm operates inside plants, animals and people. We now know that when we see daylight, the hypothalamus in the brain tends messages to the cells and systems in the body to alter the way they function. The clock genes inside our cells change the protein pathways of that cell. That’s why your liver, your digestive track, your brain, your circulatory system are doing different things at night than they do during the day. Latest research summarizes many of the discoveries that chronobiologists like these have made in recent years and it asks the provocative question, “Is your schedule killing you?” The answer is Yes and How can we adopt the ancient Ayurvedic practices to prevent and reverse this lifestyle epidemic.
