What type of lighting do you have in your home in the evening?
Did you know that as the sun goes down our blue light exposure should also minimize?
Blue light decreases our melatonin production which will decrease our sleep quality and decrease our immune system function.
This is why it’s important to have the right lighting at home. Regular LED lights can decrease melatonin production by 40 percent whereas candlelight it decreases melatonin production by about 2 percent.
Tips for you to reduce blue light:
1. Use candlelight or firelight
2. Get 2700k light bulbs
3. Wear blue blocking glasses
4. Avoid screens at least one hour before bedtime.
5. Download a blue blocking filter on your cellphone and computer
I challenge you to implement one of the five tips above and PM me to let me know how your sleep improves.

I would highly recommend the Living Proof Institute. The staff are all very passionate in helping patients find the root cause of their health issues. I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Ricky Brar and Dipa Patel. They were very knowledgeable, supportive and provided the utmost care. They gave me the time I needed and answered all of my questions during appointments and by phone or email. This level of care sadly, would never be provided in our Health Care system. Whatever your health concern may be, the dedicated team of professionals at the Living Proof Institute will provide you with exceptional care in your health journey.Bridget Leon
