  • Understanding Your Sleep Cycle Stages

    People don’t simply fall asleep and wake up. In fact, there’s 5 sleep stages we pass through (or should be passing through) as we slumber. It’s important to understand what each of these stages are so we can ensure we’re getting into a deep enough sleep. Failure to hit certain stages of sleep means bodily functions that correspond to that stage aren’t happening. Continue reading

  • Sleep Hygiene: A Roadmap to Better Sleep

    Sleep Hygiene leads to Better SleepSleep hygiene is the daily routine you practice to induce optimal sleep. Just like skin care, washing your face with bar soap vs. a multi-step regime, the more emphasis you put into it and the prioritization that you make it, will have compounding benefits. Think about it, if you have a face full of acne, do you just continue using the same soap and hope for the best? No, you switch to a specific cleanser, the proper lotion, a fancy serum, and the best spot treatment you can get your hands on. The same goes for your sleep, except it’s profoundly more important!

  • The Negative Effects of Eating Before Bed

    Almost everyone gets the munchies before bed at some point. While eating a healthy, balanced snack can help you relax and sleep, overeating and eating certain foods before turning in can cause numerous problems.

For specified guidance, seek counsel from your doctor or dietitian.

    Heartburn

    Heartburn happens when acidic stomach contents rise back up into your esophagus after eating, causing a tight or burning sensation in your chest. Lying down after you eat can trigger these symptoms or make them worse. To avoid sleep disruptions associated with heartburn, Dr. Timothy Morgenthaler, a sleep specialist with Mayo.Clinic.com, recommends avoiding highly spicy and garlic-flavored foods late in the day. Overeating or eating highly acidic or fatty foods, such as tomato sauce, orange juice or fried foods, can also contribute to heartburn -- particularly if you're prone to the condition.

  • How Sleep Habits Effect Antidepressants

    Those in the medical field, as well as anybody who has ever been prescribed an antidepressant, are well aware that finding the medication that is going to work best for a particular patient is a hit-or-miss process that can take several months to complete. Every patient is different and will have a different response to a specific medication or class of medication, and because each requires a full four to six weeks in order to become fully incorporated and effective in the system, the process is time consuming and frustrating. Now a physician has created a method that he believes is predictive of whether the most popular class of antidepressants will work on a specific patient, and his methodology revolves around the way that the patient sleeps.

  • The Constantly Buzzing Brain

    There was once a time that people thought that when we sleep, our brains also shut down for the night, so that sleep was a sort of coma. Since that time, scientific study has proven otherwise, but that doesn’t mean that we still fully understand exactly what is going on when we fall asleep. To that point, a new study conducted by neurologist Dr. Josef Parvizi of Stanford University has shown that not only is the brain active during the time that we’re sleeping, but that the activity that is going on is specific and targeted. The finding is providing valuable information about the enormous amount of energy that the brain uses each night while we are sleeping. Continue reading
