7 Reasons why you should sleep on your Left Side

Everyone knows that sleep is very important for maintaining a good physical and mental health. However, the duration of your sleep is just as important as the way in which you sleep. Your sleep position can influence your health, help in keeping your skin look young, improve your digestive health and work to save you the horrors of Life style diseases!

The Two sides – the Left and the Right sides of the body are very different from each other.

We see that people have one eye weaker than the other, pain in only one leg’ rashes on only one side of the body. When there is pain in the stomach the doctor asks “which side of the stomach is paining?”. Why?

According to Ayurveda, the left side of the body is completely different than the right side. And, while it may sound strange, emphasising the left side for rest and sleep offers some time tested wisdom for very real health and longevity benefits.

Stomach on Left Side

The first major reason is that the stomach lies to the left side of the body!

7 Reasons to Try Sleeping on Your Left Side:

Here are some of Ayurveda’s reasons for recommending the left side for sleep. Keep reading for more detailed discussion.

•Support healthy spleen function

•Encourages proper digestion

•Helps circulation back to the heart

•Helps bile flow more freely

Think You’re Drinking Enough Water? or What happens if you drink Less


This is a serious question for those who value their health, who want to look younger and live longer.

After Air, water is the most important element for survival. Although you cannot live without air beyond minutes, the human body is 75% water. The controller aka brain is 85% water.

It then is important to drink optimum amounts of clean mineralised water. Yet many people have no idea about how much water to drink and remain in a de-hydrated state.

Without optimum amounts of water we get poisoned by our own body’s waste, wether removal of uric acid by the Kidneys or removal of poisons/waste – being generated by the cells of the body – by the Lymph system.

We even need water to breathe:  our lungs must be moist to take in oxygen and excrete carbon dioxide.

Constant de-hydration will lead to:

  1. Excess body fat,
  2. Poor muscle tone and size
  3. Decreased digestive efficiency and organ function
  4. Increased toxicity in the body
  5. Joint and muscle soreness
  6. Inflammation
  7. Water retention
  8. Skin Problems
  9. Built up of Uric Acid and other poisons
  10. Early Ageing

For weight watchers:

If people who are trying to lose weight don’t drink enough water, the body is not able to metabolise the fat adequately.  Retaining fluid also keeps weight up.

Overweight people should drink in an extra glass for every 12 kilograms they exceed their ideal weight.

The minimum for a healthy person is eight to ten eight-ounce glasses a day,” says Dr. Flaks.  “You need more if you exercise a lot or live in a hot climate.

How Much Water You Should Drink According to Your Body Weight


Your intake should be spread throughout the day and evening.

You may wonder:  If I drink this much, won’t I constantly be running to the bathroom?  Maybe Yes.  But after a few weeks, your bladder will adjust and you will urinate less frequently but in larger amounts.

And by consuming those eight to ten glasses of water throughout the day, you could be on your way to a healthier, leaner body.
