On Episode 38 of the Stronger Bones Lifestyle Podcast host Debi Robinson talks to sleep expert Anne Marie Boyhan about why she’s obsessed with sleep.

As a functional diagnostic nutrition root cause practitioner and sleep science coach, Anne Marie shares why you need to “get under the hood” with functional labs to find out where the imbalances are and why insomnia and other sleep issues aren’t just an easy fix.

Anne Marie is founder of The Sleep Care Company and the author of The Sleep Journal, a science backed wellness journal for sleep. Listen today as she shares with Debi her personal journey with sleep deprivation and burnout and how that led her to this new path of self care, and function lab testing. Plus: some of Anne Marie’s top tips for a good night’s sleep.

"There's a statistic that says that a CEO that’s functioning on less than 4 hours sleep a night, it is the physiological equivalent of being drunk on the job." [13:24]

"It's amazing what we can do when we start to look deep and heal.” [25:51]

A few of Anne Marie's Better Sleeping Tips

Yoga can stimulate bone growth in your 20’s and can reverse bone loss in your 60’s. Yoga creates stronger bones because it has 10-20 times greater pressure than gravity.
In addition to bone growth, Yoga improves balance, anxiety, and posture.
The osteocytes in your legs govern your appetite, which is why Yoga promotes weight loss.
Rotation is completely safe for women suffering from osteoporosis or osteopenia. Safe spinal rotation involves having proper length and extension in the thoracic curve.
Yoga done for 20-30 minutes every day can protect your cognitive function.
