    Her car is racing at a terrifying speed through the streets of a large city, and something gruesome, something with giant eyeballs, is chasing her, closing in fast.

He simply told her to think of a new one. “In your mind, with thinking...

  • Obstructed breathing affects many people while they’re sleeping

    The Washington Post: Health & Science

    Obstructed breathing affects many people while they’re sleeping

    You wake up tired after a full night’s sleep. Maybe you’ve become a bit forgetful, and you struggle to stay awake at work or behind the wheel. The problem might be obstructive sleep apnea, an often overlooked condition that has increased sharply in the past 20 years.

    In the United States, more than 40 percent of men and 28 percent of women between the ages of 50 and 70 experience obstructed breathing while asleep, according to researchers whose work was published online in April by the American Journal of Epidemiology. About 17 percent of the men and 9 percent of the women have cases serious enough to meet the Medicare criteria for a sleep apnea diagnosis. But even milder cases can affect your health.

  • Sleep Center Links Obesity and Sleep Disorders

    Seminar offers weight loss opportunity for people who often feel tired or sleepy.

    Brian Dennis has found a new and unexpected way to lose weight. He was always tired and found it hard to exercise. But ever since he fixed his sleep disorder, his new found energy has led to the shedding of forty-five pounds. In fact, he’s found so much energy he will be participating in the Iron Horse bicycle tour from Durango to Silverton, CO in May.
    Most people are unfamiliar with the connection between sleep and obesity. Given the higher incidence of sleep disorders among those who are overweight, poor sleep quality can be a significant contributing factor to weight gain. When patients improve their sleep quality, they feel less tired and sleepy during the day. The new-found energy increases their motivation to exercise and even gives them better control over their appetite.


    The Sleep and Human Health Institute (SHHI) is offering a series of free seminars where people will learn about the link between obesity and the quality of their sleep. Read more from the Sleep & Human Health Institute...
