Thank you for engaging! Here is a picture of the TCM meridian clock that I was referring to. I always learned that going to sleep by 11pm allowed you to process & heal better given that it begins the gallbladder and then liver time. In my practice, taking pressure off the liver system is almost always the first step in supporting fertility and gynecological goals. When I tell patients this and discuss growth hormone (which is mainly produced while we are sleeping) as key to hormonal regulation, egg quality, etc, it really seems to click. So, this is why I was curious if Laura had some extra insight for us about how this comes together in her practice.
