“What Does “Sleep Quality” Mean?
Sleep quality means you are sleeping throughout the night in deep sleep without any interruptions. This means that waking up to go pee in the middle of the night — although common — is not normal. If you are not in deep sleep, your body’s ability to create hormones (such as growth hormone, testosterone, cortisol, and thyroid hormone) is drastically compromised, leaving you in a less optimal health state.

Below are some common sleep issues. Taken from Chinese Medicine, waking up or waking up to go pee in the middle of the night at certain times is a sign of imbalance in the body.
- 10pm-1am – Due to poor blood sugar management. You ate too many carbohydrates before bed or you did not balance your meal, leading to a sudden drop in blood sugar waking you up.
- 1am-3am – Waking up at this time means the liver is overworking, detoxifying, filtering, converting and moving blood in your system to supply nutrients and get rid of toxins.
- 4am-5am OR waking up before you need to – Lack of antioxidants to fight free radicals. Your food choices might be lacking in veggies or fruits high in anti-oxidants to help you get rid of garbage in your body.” Continued…
