Sleep is not rest. Sleep is the time that nature orchestrates a symphony of processes that incorporate the work you've performed into your body and mind.
The body's nutrient use patterns are at the core of nutrition science, yet the steps the body goes through are counter-intuitive and widely misunderstood by even specialists.
Active muscle has a basic role over and above the common function of "burning calories" for weight-loss. The body's sensitivity to insulin and its use of fuels is altered with exercise.
The goals of a performance athlete are very different than the goals of a person seeking weight loss or optimal health, but the basic triad of quality sleep, nutrition & fitness are what engenders success for all of us. We teach you and your staff how.
The Tri-Nourish System is an evidence-based methodology to integrate individually tailored sleep optimization consultation and education with customized nutrition and fitness planning for athletes, fitness enthusiasts, and individuals interested in health management resources.
We integrate the three primary domains by addressing their seamless interactions in a shared physiology and metabolism. That is, after all, what nature does. Sleep is not an afterthought. Nutrition is not a diet. Exercise is not a weight-loss choice. When these issues are placed in their natural context— nourishment thrives.
Poor sleep shifts the body's fuel use preference to a pattern similar to stress. The hormone cocktail favors increased hunger and snack frequency even while fat stores continue to be protected from utilization and lean tissue is broken down before fat is mobilized.
When it comes to our emotional wellbeing, sleep is a principle factor. Sleep processes act like nature's gardener, pruning out the clutter and nourishing important connections in the brain. How does the gardener know what to attend to? By our feeling-directed associations. Sleep restores our emotional balance.
Aside from the dire impacts of common sleep disorders such as sleep apnea on cardiovascular health, even young, healthy individuals shift their insulin and nutrient use patterns toward metabolic disorders with poor sleep. These effects accrue from poor sleep alone.
The graphic on the smartphone screen came off of an advertisement for a modern device that measures sleep. Unfortunately, the chart shows that the person entered sleep through REM first. If that were the case, the person would be suspected of either narcolepsy or severe sleep deprivation. Context matters!
A better way to utilize technology as a powerful tool is to understand the context and limitations of its application. When actual metrics are combined with actual knowledge, the value of the technology increases exponentially. More importantly, undue harm is not done by misleading users about the nature of the metrics performed.
Smart devices are increasingly utilized for acquiring actual information about our sleep, nutrition and fitness habits. That is a wonderful trend that should continue. Nonetheless, contextualization is still required. It is often the case that acquisition data and acquiring methodologies are not explained.
We believe that technology should seamlessly integrate into our lives. Integration, however, requires placing the technology into a broader context: the specific state, knowledge base and goals of our everyday lives. That 'data' cannot be pre-programmed into our technology because it is by definition: individual.
