Nightlase laser treatments for sleep apnea

Never underestimate the power of sleep- Nightlase laser treatments for sleep apnea

Sleeping well and through the night is one of the cornerstones of optimal health & is vital in preventing most diseases.

In my practice the most common issues I see with sleep include: hormonal imbalance (including blood sugar fluctuations), sleep apnea  & snoring as well as getting up to pee in the night.

Thankfully with increased media attention on hormonal health most people are understanding that bioidentical hormones are very helpful when it comes to sleeping through the night when indicated.

Another area that is up and coming in research is the negative impact of sleep apnea & snoring on health.  Sleep apnea in particular increases risk of heart attack by a whopping 30%. It also increases risk of stroke by 40%!!

Many  people have undiagnosed sleep apnea, and they may just present with minor symptoms like snoring, am headaches, waking in the night, gasping or waking with bad dreams, waking to pee in the night & waking up feeling tired  are just some of the symptoms that people may present with.

Sleep apnea solutions include CPAP machines, dental devices & Nightlase laser treatments.

Nightlase is a leading-edge laser procedure for the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea. Laser energy is used to heat the tissues of the airway causing a tightening effect, which helps to keep your airway open.    More specifically it tightens the soft palate & helps lift it off the tongue and off the back of the throat – thus opening up the airway at night (and also in the day).   This procedure is offered at Integrated Health Clinic

Last but not least, if you are a woman & you are waking up to pee in the night, sometimes the Incontilase vaginal laser procedure can help your bladder hold more urine so you can sleep through the whole night.

If you are suffering with insomnia my hope is your issues are resolved so you can restore your sleep and health.
