Sleep Recliner, for patients who need to sleep in an elevated position.

Want more energy, better digestion, less joint pain, clearer skin, clearer thinking, a sharper memory, an overall improved sense of well-being – and in some cases, at little or no cost to you? You can improve your health with this one, simple cure!

It’s called…sleep.

The National Sleep Foundation estimates we’re sleeping about 20% less than we did a century ago – but consider how much more we cram into a day! Too little sleep can negatively impact mood, memory and productivity, but research also indicates it can lead to increased weight gain and ups one’s risk for diabetes and heart problems.

“Sleep restores your body and restores your mind,” says Dr. Michael Nolledo, Attending Pulmonologist and Director of the Institute for Sleep Medicine at Deborah Heart and Lung Center in New Jersey. “It’s quantity as well as quality that’s important for sleep.”

Sleep deprivation and poor quality sleep may have temporary causes, such as stress or schedule changes. But ongoing sleep disturbances that result in poor quality sleep may have a medical basis that Dr. Nolledo and his team can diagnose and treat. Sleep apnea, for example, is a breathing obstruction that can raise a patient’s risk for heart attack.

Rasa Kaye talked with Dr. Nolledo at the state-of-the-art – and relaxing! – six-bedroom sleep study lab at Deborah’s fully-accredited Institute for Sleep Medicine about sleep apnea and other sleep disorders that require treatment, as well as tips we can all use to get great shut-eye.
