Sleep disorders are frequent and not trivial for health. Do you wake up every night at the same time at night? Here’s what that means.

Who has never woken up at night, to drink or go to the bathroom? Common and often rare nocturnal awakenings. But for some people, waking up at night is very common. Sometimes it happens every night, several times a night. However, too frequent nocturnal awakenings are not harmless to health. It is during sleep that the body is full of energy to face the day. If the sleep is too short or of poor quality, your mood may be altered, vou may feel tired throughout the day… Sleep “would thus allow the body to recuperate, whether physically or mentally,” recalls INSERM. “Poor quality/quantity of sleep increases the risk of irritability, depressive symptoms, but also weight gain, hypertension or infection.”

This observation made, we do everything to take care of our sleep. Nevertheless, it may be that despite everything, the nocturnal awakenings occur at the same time each night, or very often. Why ? Each schedule would correspond to a problem according to Chinese medicine. Because according to the latter, each organ in particular works intensely for two hours. We tell you everything.

According to Chinese medicine, waking up between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m. is due to a malfunction of the gallbladder. The latter plays an important role. “This pear-shaped organ (10 cm long) is located on the right side under the liver which produces bile”, defines the Léon Berard Cancer Center. It is part of the digestive system. Bile produced by the gallbladder helps the body digest fat. If it malfunctions, digestion is impacted even if the function of the gallbladder is not essential for digestion. So, if you wake up at this time, try to take it easy.

If you feel that the awakenings persist, a consultation with a health professional may be necessary.
