Promote Longevity

Sleep is key to living a longer life of better quality. During sleep, your body produces essential hormones to repair and rejuvenate your brain and body.

All Ages Affected

Sleep Disorders affect children, adolescents, adults, and seniors alike.  Today, children are a growing concern, due to recognition of the link between sleep disorders and childhood conditions.

Sleep and Menopause

Menopause is a period of significant hormonal, physical, and emotional changes for many women and has been linked to fragmented sleep and poor sleep quality. During the transition phase, or Perimenopausal phase, the ovaries slowly decrease production of the hormones Estrogen and Progesterone.

Adults

It is normal for sleep needs and sleep patterns to change as we age. The older we get, more time asleep is spent in lighter sleep stages and less time is spent in the deeper, restorative stages of sleep.

Pediatrics

Children suffering from untreated sleep disorders may be hyperactive, inattentive, and chronically sleepy. Changes in behavior often result in academic underachievement and social difficulties.

Sleep and Pregnancy

Sleep problems are very common in expectant mothers, even in those that have had no prior sleep problems before becoming pregnant. The National Sleep Foundation (www.sleepfoundation.org) published a poll called Women and Sleep, where 78% of women reported more sleep disturbances during pregnancy than other times. 

Adolescence

Teens need sleep just as much as younger kids. Studies have shown the teens should sleep 8.5 to 9.5 hours each night. On top of that their daytime sleepiness is increased. This has been shown even when their schedule allows for adequate amounts of sleep.

Unique Biology of Women

Everybody craves a good night sleep. Sleep is necessary for everybody to feel rested and energetic throughout the day. It is known that there is a significant difference between men and women, in relation to their sleep.

Seniors

The more medical ailments people have, the worse they sleep. Most sleep problems that affect seniors are related to their illnesses or medications used to treat them. Seniors that are in good health do not complain as much about their sleep as those that have other medical conditions, such as pain or arthritis.
