Sleep is a fundamental aspect of our lives that often goes overlooked or undervalued. Many people believe that the key to a good night’s sleep lies in external solutions, such as melatonin pills, sleep mattresses, or herbal supplements. However, what we fail to realize is that sleep is not a random occurrence; it is a carefully orchestrated process controlled by the laws of physics and influenced by the cues we receive from our environment.
In this episode, we had the pleasure of speaking with Roudy Nassif, a renowned Engineer, Health Entrepreneur, Light Expert, and Founder of VivaRays, where we delved deep into the fascinating world of sleep and energy, how it affects menopause and hormone health, discussing practical tips and strategies that can transform your life.
Roudy’s knowledge and expertise are truly remarkable. He has a unique ability to simplify complex concepts, making them accessible to everyone, even a three-year-old! We explored the impact of light on our sleep patterns, the importance of blocking artificial light at night, and how these factors can significantly improve our overall well-being.
But that’s not all! We also touched on the topic of menopause and women’s hormones, diving into the technical aspects while keeping it simple and relatable. If you’re experiencing menopause or want to understand it better, this episode is a must-listen.
One of the highlights of our conversation was Roudy’s personal journey with his mother. By introducing her to the power of blocking artificial light at night, he witnessed a profound transformation in her life. She regained her sleep, and with it, her energy, drive, and motivation. It’s truly inspiring to see how a simple change can have such a profound impact.
We encourage you to tune in to this episode and discover the incredible insights Roudy has to offer. Whether you’re struggling with sleep issues, seeking ways to boost your energy levels, or simply curious about optimizing your well-being, you’ll find valuable takeaways in this conversation.

“The quality of the sleep that we get and how rested and energized we feel when we wake up the following morning is controlled by laws of physics. And the main force that control how well we sleep and how rested we feel when we wake up is the circadian force.” – Roudy Nassif
“The problem is when we wake up and we blast blue light in our face from the phone or from an LED bulb, the bulb has a spike of blue light at 455 nanometers that is not balanced and proportionate with orange and red light. And this is where blue light becomes inflammatory.” – Roudy Nassif
