Senior Sleep Therapist, Robyn Fowler, was invited to appear on 4BC Radio Brisbane recently. The topic was 9 ways sharing a bed can ruin your sleep. However, the discussion quickly turned to snoring (being one of the top complaints and an area Robyn is an expert in).

As Robyn points out "snoring is more than just an annoying and embarrassing problem. Snoring is a clear indication of an impaired airway."

Sleep soundly during spring

Spring has finally arrived. (Cue Vivaldi orchestral music!) The sun is shining. The days are longer, with plants and trees blooming with radiant bursts of floral colour.

However, with the change of season comes increased pollen levels which can make breathing difficult for those who suffer from allergy-induced lethargy. This lethargy is similar to experiencing jetlag where the body needs time to acclimatise.

Sleep Clinic Services have been invited to present a talk entitled Sleep Disordered Breathing - The Hidden Epidemic at the inaugural Centenary Natural Health Expo this Saturday 28th June at the Jindalee Hotel from 2.30pm.

The purpose of the Expo is to inspire and educate people on how to naturally improve their health and well being. This year's theme is Creating a Future of Abundant Health and Vitality, Today.

Researchers studied 18 volunteers over four nights and found that those who slept for 10 hours were able to keep their finger on a heat source for 25 seconds longer than those who had eight hours or fewer.
