How To Sleep Better and Reduce Inflammation with Dr Roger Seheult

by Dr. Rangan Chatterjee   /  March 2, 2022

This week, I welcome Dr Roger Seheult back to the podcast. Roger is a medical doctor who is quadruple board certified in internal medicine, pulmonary diseases, critical care medicine and sleep medicine. As well as his clinical practice, he is passionate about teaching doctors and the public via his teaching company MedCram and his YouTube channel.

In this conversation, I was keen to focus on the topic of inflammation. Inflammation is a natural and necessary biological response to injury or infection, but thanks to our modern lifestyles, it’s become a response that doesn’t always go away when it should. Chronic unresolved inflammation in the body lies at the heart of conditions such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, depression, obesity, diabetes and dementia. And in this conversation, we look at some of the best things that you can do on a daily basis to reduce inappropriate inflammation and increase your chances of staying fit and healthy.

We begin by talking about sleep, and Roger explains why quantity, as well as quality, is so important. We discuss the impact that a lack of sleep can have on inflammation and what we now know about sleep deprivation and our risk of disease. Of course, if you’re someone who struggles to sleep, this knowledge can just make you more anxious and this is something that Roger and I discuss. We share some practical tips for shift-workers, new parents and insomniacs.

Roger explains the connection between stress and inflammation and he shares the type of exercise that studies show is most effective in lowering stress, anxiety and fear.

Finally, we discuss why it’s not what we eat but when we eat that’s key to reducing inflammation. We’re not designed to be constantly digesting food, and Roger explains why practising time-restricted eating can result in amazing improvements in inflammation, metabolism and more.

This conversation is full of actionable information to empower you to take control of your health. Roger has a brilliant way of simplifying complex ideas to motivate each and every one of us into action. I think you’ll really enjoy this conversation.
