  • San Francisco Giants Believe Sleep is the Key to Winning

    It’s World Series time, and for the third time in the past five years, the San Francisco Giants have been in the playoffs. As this year’s National League contender, the team has once again pulled out all the stops to ensure that they are doing everything in their power to win, and once again that includes bringing in sleep expert Dr. Chris Winter. Winter is the medical director of the Martha Jefferson Hospital Sleep Medicine Center in Charlottesville, Virginia, and Giants’ athletic director Dave Groeschner is a huge fan. The Giants have consulted with Dr. Winter each time that they have been in post-season play, and were the very first professional team to ever call on him. Many others have followed their lead.

  • Major Health Insurer to Open Sleep Store

    Highmark Inc., one of the largest health insurers in the country, has announced plans to open a retail store dedicated to helping people get a better night’s sleep.

    Highmark is the fourth-largest company affiliated with insurance giant Blue Cross and Blue Shield. It operates plans in Pennsylvania, Delaware and West Virginia that serve a total of over 5 million members. The company provides health insurance, dental, insurance, and vision care, and the new sleep store — to be called REMWorks — is the first bricks and mortar retail location that it will operate, though the company does also run a retail store that sells vision and eyewear products. It is slated to open this coming December at a popular shopping location called The Waterfront, located in Homestead, Pennsylvania. The store will provide customers with solutions and products specifically designed to assist with the problems of insomnia, sleep apnea, snoring and sleeplessness. Continue reading

  • First world problems

    A quick review of blogs, tweets, Facebook postings and talk shows reveals that in the United States, we tend to complain an awful lot, and mostly about things that would seem extremely minor or even nonsensical to those living in countries that are not quite so privileged. But recent reports are indicating that one of the problems that seems endemic to highly advanced societies like ours can cause serious physical problems, and may even lead to reduced productivity and innovation.

  • Sleep’s Role in Tumor Growth

    It has traditionally been understood that much of the body’s healing takes place when we are asleep, and nowhere has this information been more valuable than during the treatment of cancer patients. But a new study coming from Israeli scientists is giving rise to new questions about sleep’s role in tumor growth, and the study results may make a change in how cancer medication is dispensed.

    According to a report published in the October 3rd journal Nature Communications, scientists from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel examined the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), a receptor responsible for the migration and growth of both cancerous and noncancerous cells. It also controls glucocorticoids, which bind to glucocorticoid (GC) receptors in order to reduce inflammation in the body and help to maintain energy levels throughout the day. The scientists discovered that the activity of the EGFT slows down when the GC receptors are attached to its steroid message, a process that takes place during the day. Continue reading

  • Sleep Doctor Identifies Failures in Sleep Medications

    When people are having a hard enough time falling asleep that they seek medical help, they are usually looking for an easy answer, and all too often that comes in the form of a pill. Joan Rossman is a classic example of the type – a psychotherapist, Rossman found herself unable to fall asleep, and when she did fall asleep easily she would wake up far earlier than she wanted to and find herself unable to fall back to sleep. “Whether I was preoccupied or excited, it played out in my sleep patterns. I would awaken just exhausted. I knew something was not right,” she said. Continue reading
