Human body is a miraculous assembly of organ systems performing definite tasks at definite time. While you think you have assigned specific time for reading, working, playing, and sleeping, your body has even a more meticulous plan for each organ to work and rest.

They are the side effects of altering the human body clock or specifically, the result of disturbing the working hour of a given organ.

Do you ever feel sluggish, foggy, lethargic or dull? Or do you experience pain in your stomach, nausea, anorexic, or simply sleepy? Other might be experiencing pain in their body, muscle cramps, headaches and other crampy twitches. These problems might be due to the inability of your body organs to repair the damage they incur whole day long without proper rest.
