Sleep Treatment to Change Your Life
Sleep is one of the pillars for a healthy life- mentally and physically. We spend roughly 1/3 of our life in bed, however, we are chronically sleep deprived. For many the problem is not of quantity of sleep, but also quality. Sleep-disordered breathing such as sleep apnea and snoring can wreak havoc on our ability to breath during sleep and get transfer sufficient oxygen to our vital organs- including the brain. This break in our body’s equilibrium on an hourly basis throughout the night continues for years- usually going undiagnosed.
Sleep apnea and snoring can increase our risk of stroke (by roughly 76%), heart disease (by roughly 50%), diabetes, depression, cancer, sexual dysfunction, acid reflux (GERD), weight gain, immune deficiency, etc. Physicians and scientists estimate that roughly 80-90% of patients with moderate-severe sleep apnea go undiagnosed. Of those being diagnosed, roughly 50% do not use the often prescribed CPAP Mask.
