Healthy sleep is basic and essential to health. We all know that, yet sometimes our need for sleep is ignored or minimized. Whether you are suffering from insomnia, body clock issues, or other sleep problems, it all results in sleep deprivation.
When human beings are sleep deprived their overall health suffers, and here are some of the ways:
- memory and creative thinking are impaired
- insulin control is disordered
- inflammation increases, which can lead to heart disease
- irritability increases
- risk of accidents increases as motor performance decreases
As a naturopathic physician I specialize exclusively in treating sleep disorders in people of all ages. My focus is on empowering you to sleep well without pills by providing the knowledge and skills needed. Additionally I will assess any physiological cause of the sleep problem and prescribe supplements to bring balance.
