The Impact of Your Sleeping Position on Your Health: Expert Insights from Dr. Peter Martone

Child: Welcome to my Mommy’s podcast. This podcast is brought to you by Wellnesse. And this is a company that I got to help co-found and formulate the products for and one that I care deeply about. Oral health has been a fun research topic for me for well over a decade. When I discovered I had some cavities and started learning about the process of remineralization and how our teeth have the ability to stay stronger and healthier, dependent on a lot of factors, including our nutrition, our oral microbiome, and the environment of our mouth. And this is why we use something called hydroxyapatite, which is a naturally occurring mineral that is used in the enamel of our teeth. And there’s some fascinating studies that show that this is really effective at helping keep teeth strong and healthy. And this is also why I chose not to use fluoride in my products. Hydroxyapatite has many of the same upsides without the potential downsides that come with fluoride and is certainly much safer for children as well.I really delved into the research around the oral microbiome. And I love that this is now an emerging area of conversation and research. But when our oral microbiome is strong, that helps us avoid both ends of the spectrum. One would be things like strep mutans, which is the bacteria linked to cavities, as well as the host of bacteria that are linked to things like gingivitis. Both of those can be combated by having a really healthy oral microbiome.So we’ve recently released probiotic mints that have four probiotic strains that help enhance the oral microbiome and by choosing microbiome safe ingredients, as well as hydroxyapatite for tooth enamel in the toothpaste. So you can check out those as well as our full line of haircare products and other oral health products as well by going to wellnesse.com. This podcast is brought to you by ARMRA, which is a new Colostrum I have been experimenting with and had to tell you about. Because you know I’m always on the lookout for new ways to improve immunity, gut health, fitness, metabolism, and enhance my skin and hair. And I have been liking this new Colostrum product.Colostrum is the first nutrition we receive in life, and it contains all the essential nutrients our bodies need in order to thrive. But the ARMRA one specifically is a proprietary concentrate of bovine colostrum that harnesses over 400 living bioactive nutrients that rebuild the barriers of your body and fuel cellular health for a host of research-backed benefits. It strengthens immunity, ignites metabolism, and it has anti-inflammatory gut-fortifying properties. It can improve hair growth and skin radiance. I’ve been using it for fitness and recovery, and it also has a host of well-studied anti-aging benefits.And this one is a premium one, unlike other ones I’ve tried. It’s natural, sustainable, and they’ve done research and testing from start to finish. Unlike most colostrums, which use heat that depletes their nutrient potency, they leverage their proprietary cold chain biopotent technology, which is an innovative process that purifies and preserves the integrity of the bioactive nutrients while removing things like casein and fat to guarantee that it’s highly potent and bioavailable and more so than any other one on the market. So they go above and beyond industry standards and they invest in expensive auditing and third-party testing to ensure that they always meet the highest demands of purity and efficacy and are glyphosate-free. And for you, for listening, they have a special offer just for you to receive 15% off your first order by going to tryarmra.com/mama15 and using the code “mama15” to say 15%. Katie: Hello and welcome to the Wellness Mama Podcast. I’m Katie from WellnessMama.com and this episode is all about sleep and especially how your sleeping position affects your health in ways you may not have ever known. And I’m here with Dr. Peter Martone, who is really working to change the conversation about sleep. We all know that sleep is vital to our health, but how you sleep is just as critical. And this is where his wealth of knowledge lies. His personal story combined with his 23 years of expertise has taken sleep and health optimization to a whole new level. I got to meet him at a conference, and we got to nerd out a little bit about so many aspects of sleep. He gave me some sleep tips that have been helpful for me and for my kids. And he has a uniquely different structural approach that’s catching fire in the health space and his product, which is called the neck nest, is helping a lot of people really improve their sleep posture. But in this episode, we go deep on that topic. We talk about things like the HPA axis and the vagus nerve and how they affect sleep. He provides some really actionable tips that I have not heard before on how to improve sleep and HRV and many other things. We talk about rapid fire things like alcohol, THC, melatonin, so much more. And he has some great quotes about how you don’t think yourself to sleep, you remember yourself to sleep and what that means, and so much more. Definitely lots of actionable tips in this episode. So without any further ado, let’s join Dr. Peter Martone. Dr. Martone, welcome. Thank you so much for being here. I’m so excited to finally get to chat with you and record it. Dr. Peter: This is great. Thank you so much for having me. Katie: Well, we’re going to go super deep on the topic of sleep today. But before we do, in researching your bio, I also have a note that you raised a deer. And I want to hear this story because you might be the only person I know who has raised a deer. Dr. Peter: So it’s interesting, I was just waking up from a nap because I’ve been, this was 15, oh my, no, it’s gotta be, yeah, it’s 16 years ago now. And I hear, mom, mom, mom, mom. And I’m like, what the heck? And I look outside, my wife is holding this baby deer. And I remember right when I was going down for a nap, I heard this really screeching type of noise out in the backyard. We live right in the woods. And I’m like, what the heck is that? And I look out, my wife is holding a deer, and we had found out that the mom was killed. So we tried to contact animal control, and they’re like, oh, let it go back out into the wild. And my wife being my wife was unable to do that. So she, we ended up getting raw goat’s milk and figuring everything out on how to raise a deer, and the deer would play with my dog as it grew. It would go out into the woods, it would come back, and we raised a deer until it finally met up with a pod of deer and left. But we had the deer for about nine months. Katie: Wow, that is quite the story and so cool to have that bond. I bet that was really special for your kids too. Dr. Peter: Yeah, it was amazing. I mean, the deer would follow my kids around. It would walk into our house when, like we had that old farmhouse and it would walk through a screen door when my wife was cooking. It was pretty crazy. Katie: Oh my gosh, it sounds like a movie. Well, so for context for the listeners, I met you and connected with you at a biohacking conference. We got to have great conversations about sleep and you kind of gave me an analysis, gave a couple of my kids an analysis and gave some suggestions that have been helpful for our sleep. So I’m excited to get to let the audience benefit from your wisdom today as well. I think to start off broad and we can get a much more nuanced from here, but there seems to be so much debate in the area of the optimal sleep position and you have done so much research and work and helped so many thousands of…
