Circadian Rhythms
Every living thing has a biological clock that clues hunger and sleepiness.

As bats are nocturnal, the diurnal nature is built into our genes -- urging our activity during the day. If this circadian rhythm gets out of whack, it can affect all systems of the body.

“Night owls” have circadian rhythm dysfunction. While they may seemingly function well, they aren’t surviving with optimal health and suffer increased risk for various diseases.

Listen as Dr. Felice Gersh joins Dr. Susanne Bennett to discuss circadian rhythms and what can disrupt them.
