Our body has an built clock. It is called Circadian clock and it is programmed to carry out the following functions. Since we do not schedule our activities and the frequent travellers also cross from one time zone to another, this clock knows how to adjust as easily as you adjust your wrist watch to the new time, provided you cooperate with it. Circadian clock also can be programmed to wake you up at a particular time and it is more reliable than the human clock. Here then know the time table of the Circadian clock.
1 AM to 3 AM - time for Liver to detoxify and process the debris of the past
3 AM to 5 AM - time for Lungs to breathe deep in sleep, and ready body for dawn.
5 AM to 7 AM - time for Colon to release the debris of the past 24 hours.
7 AM to 9 AM - time for Stomach to break fast.
9 AM to 11 AM - time for Spleen to process the products of digestion.
11 AM to 1 PM - time for the physical heart to think, and plan, and execute.
1 PM to 3 PM - time for Small Intestine to filter the pure and pass on the impure.
3 PM to 5 PM - time for the urinary bladder to pass out toxins.
