Fresh vegetables, fruits and nuts are all examples of whole foods.

Join Michael Stout, sleep technologist at Samaritan Pacific Sleep Lab, as he explains how the foods you eat impact your sleep — and your overall health and well-being. As a certified clinical sleep educator, Stout understands that the quality of your sleep is directly related to what you feed your body. For example, whole plant foods are excellent sources of melatonin and L-tryptophan, which promote good sleep. Leafy greens contain micronutrients like calcium and magnesium which aid in relaxation and help nocturnal limb movement disorders. And, the most common type of sleep disorder, sleep apnea, is often the result of obesity and inflammatory conditions.

Registration is required as space is limited. Light refreshments will be provided.
