You might be scheming that the upcoming summer holiday will be the perfect opportunity to lie in and take it easy, but professionals in the sleep department think otherwise.
Ever had one of those days where you yawn excessively and are barely able to keep your eyes open?
If you answered with something along the lines of “all the time”, then you should consider the notion that you might have a sleep disorder.
You see, too many of us over-exert ourselves year-round, and patiently wait until the end of the year to sleep in and take it easy.
But while relaxation is of the utmost importance and time away from work is a good time to rest and rejuvenate, you should also consider learning new healthy habits, like adopting a proper sleep routine.
Because, as with most “disorders”, the first step to solving the problem is to admit you have one – and that’s okay.
The professionals at the Renewal Institute have long dedicated their time to assisting those who need help, and provide the highest quality of care for both the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders in adults, adolescents and children, including:
To figure out what the issue is, Sleep Renewal offers two main ways to assist in the matter:
1. Professional Overnight Sleep Study (Morningside branch ONLY)
Consisting of two luxurious sleep laboratories with the most advanced technologies and a highly qualified team, you can have your sleep patterns assessed by sleeping over.
They then monitor you on an FDA approved Polysomnography (PSG) device with the latest developments in amplifier design and signal processing.
2. Home-Based Sleep Study (available at all branches)
Their home-based sleep study device allows them to test for OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnoea) and UARS (Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome). To begin your assessment, you’ll be sent a questionnaire.
But why? Well, you want to sleep better, don’t you?
Once you go in for an assessment, you will be able to begin working on your sleep hygiene to improve your sleep. Sleep Renewal will not only diagnose underlying causes – which could be hormone imbalances, chronic fatigue, stress and depression, obesity and insulin resistance to name a few – but treat them as well.
Give them a call, book an appointment and, hey, if you’ve been looking for a Christmas present to give yourself, this could be it.
Eight hours of uninterrupted sleep – just imagine.
