Guest Speaker:
Dr. Nathaniel Yuan, Internal Medicine, UCLA Health

Dr. Nathaniel Yuan is a family medicine trained sleep physician who practices in Ventura and Thousand Oaks. As such, he is an advocate for a holistic approach to an individual’s health for both during the day and night. He specializes in treating pediatric and adult sleep disorders including sleep apnea, insomnia, hypersomnia, nocturnal movement disorders, and narcolepsy.


Getting a good night’s rest is essential for your immune system and better bone health. The body undergoes an array of healthy processes during sleep including bone remodeling during which old bone tissue is removed and new bone tissue is formed.

A study published in November 2019 by the Women’s Health Initiative showed that women who self reported less than 5 hours of sleep a night, had significantly lower bone mass compared to women who slept 7 hours a night. The difference they observed is equivalent to one year of aging.
