The Circadian Code: Change your daily routine & transform your health. Circadian rhythms are biologic process exhibited by plants and animals (including humans) over the course of a day. These rhythms are governed by circadian biologic clocks contained in nearly all our cells that activate or deactivate genes at different times of day or night.
Disruption of circadian rhythms is associated with a number of adverse conditions and diseases, including insomnia, anxiety, depression, cardiovascular disease and more. Restoration of circadian rhythms can lead to better health.
This new science is revealed, showing that the timings of our day (when we eat, sleep, exercise, work) are more crucial than we ever thought before. And that, most importantly, if your daily schedule is out of sync with your circadian rhythms, you can fix it!
