Sleep Issues and the Cell Danger Response

Why are some people more sensitive to toxins than others?

One of our 5G and Our Health speakers, Dr. Russell Kort, joined us this week to go deeper into the topic of Sleep Issues and the Cell Danger Response. So many of you all have been asking us for tips for better sleep, and we thought this topic would really help shed some light on an aspect of sleep that isn’t often talked about!

Dr. Kort shared on topics ranging from sleep apnea to mouth vs. nose breathing, snoring and the integrity of the airway, all in relation to the quality of sleep. He made the connection between poor sleep and the Cell Danger Response to help us understand why some people become more sensitive to stressors like infection, wireless radiation, electrosmog and other toxins in the environment.

It was great to see so many of you connecting during this “Safe Haven” online. We know that Dr. Kort’s advice will benefit everyone, so please find the recording below.


How To Improve Your Sleep And Reduce The Cell Danger Response

Sleep Tips!

Dr. Kort and the community discussed some recommendations on how to turn nighttime rest into a more healing sleep through several practices to improve breathing and airway function: 

–> Strengthen your breathing muscles with the Buteyko Breathing method.
–> Consider using Breath Right nose strips to widen the nasal air passages during sleep.
–> Consider mouth taping as a way to retain your body to breath through the nose at night.
–> Visit a chiropractor regularly to adjust and align the structure of your neck, jaw and airways. (Dr. Kort’s team helps their patients find chiropractors they can trust.)
–> Consider a night guard that holds your jaw in a position to open the airways. (Dr. Kort’s team helps their patients find whole body dentists.)
–> Avoid screens for 4 hours before bedtime to allow your body to produce adequate melatonin.

The recording will help clarify and expand on these tips!
