Holistic Solutions for a good night's sleep

You are not alone!
Restful Sleep

• Do you snore or are you sharing a room with someone who snores?
• Do you wake frequently reducing the quality of your life by putting pressure on your relationship?
• Maybe you are tired when you wake or sleepy during the day .
• Has your partner heard you stop breathing?
• Have you ever woken yourself gasping or choking?
• Are you unable to use your CPAP machine?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes then you are not alone. 40% of adult men and 30% of adult women snore. Children can also snore. Snoring isn't just noisy and annoying sometimes it may be a sign of a more serious problem: Obstructive Sleep apnoea.

Sleep is important
Our evaluation process provide solutions for this complex problem:
We still do not really understand the full importance of sleep. However there are a number of things that happen when we have poor sleep.
1. Daytime sleepiness and lethargy.
2. Morning headaches.
3. Poor focus or concentration at work or school.
4. Poor memory.
5. Mood swings, anxiety or depression .
6. Increased blood pressure or difficulty controlling blood pressure.
7. Difficulty controlling diabetes.
8. Difficulty preventing weight gain.

Sleep is the time when your body rests and repairs itself. Without good sleep our bodies do not repair and we start to experience more disease and more pain. It is during sleep that our breathing, heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature all reduce. It is also when we stabilize blood sugars and change our metabolism, this prevents weight gain.
