Sleep as Infection Fighting

More and more I see the body’s biological fight of infection as a major cause of many of our human problems, problems that are too often blamed on social relationships etc. We blame the people out there, but the greater danger – and our body is responding to it if we are unconscious of it – is infection.

Our conscious mind is not much in the fight, but the other parts of our nervous system seem to be making infection fighting, job one in importance. When we recognize that, I think it will solve a lot of our trauma.

Then I’ll take this one step further and say that sleep is mostly for fighting infection while resetting the digestive system. Wake and nurture, Sleep and fight infection.
