Did you know that quality, restful sleep is just as important as diet and exercise? And a lack of sleep can be linked to many health problems in patients. If you’re not sleeping well, here are some things you can try that may help you get back to a good night’s sleep.
Everyone knows that sleep is important, and that a lack of sleep can affect your mood, brain function, fatigue and even your immune system.
The Centers of Disease Control (CDC) reports that a lack of sleep has become a health epidemic. Did you know that 50-70 million adults have some form of sleep disorder; either wakefulness or inability to sleep. This is an astounding number of adults, this does not account for children who do not sleep well.
Each day in my office I experience at least one patient who tells me that they sleep poorly. Sometimes this poor sleep can be due to the pain they are experiencing, but nine times out of ten it’s not. Their poor sleep has been a problem for years, and they cannot find a solution.
Did you know that quality, restful sleep is just as important as diet and exercise? And a lack of sleep can be linked to many health problems in patients. A lack of sleep can affect weight gain, Type II Diabetes, increase in stress and depression, and cognitive dysfunction. And more concerning a recent study from URMC’s Center for Translational Neuromedicine found a link between a lack of sleep and Alzheimer’s.
