Do you have trouble going to sleep or staying asleep? Are you sleepy all the time?
We spend nearly a third of our lives sleeping, yet the functions this “quiet” phase of our lives are just beginning to be understood. Disorders of sleep can cause sleepiness during the day, and disturbed sleep at night. These disorders can cause stroke and heart attacks, and worsen the quality of life for patients with Alzheimer Disease and dementia. Sleep deprivation causes amyloid plaque to develop, and nerve cells to die.
Sleep quality and duration also affects brain development in children and cognitive performance in all phases of our lives. Sleep and circadian rhythms affect athletic and job performance. Poor sleep can cause traffic accidents, poor recovery from injury and illness, and impair our body’s immune system, and suicide rates in adolescents.
We’re sold quick fixes like pillows and beds to get better sleep, when the reason for our poor sleep quality probably has nothing to do bedding. Though new drugs have been FDA approved to help with sleep, and more are on the way, over-the-counter sleep remedies remain best-sellers both online and in stores, though hard evidence that they work is lacking.
Sleep helps our bodies repair themselves, helps our minds process trauma, and helps us deal with physical and mental pain and stress. In short, what our bodies do during sleep can be as important as what they do while awake, because we have twenty-four hour minds.
Over the years we at RNI have participated in many clinical trials designed to help patients with sleep disorders. Much progress has been made, but we have a long way to go in our knowledge and treatment of Sleep Disorders.
