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.


The topic of the segment was 'Snoring, hilarious or a very serious issue?'
Robyn quickly made the point that snoring is no laughing matter. Instead, it's a loud, clear sign the airflow is impaired. And an impaired airflow is never a good thing.

Held every Friday before the March equinoxes of each year World Sleep Day (WSD) is an annual event that not only celebrates sleep, but aims to lessen the burden of sleep problems on society through better prevention and management of sleep disorders.

Snoring can be treated

CPAP (continuous positive airway pressurisation) has long been identified as the 'gold standard' for the treatment of moderate to severe sleep disordered breathing (SDB) conditions such as sleep apnoea (where the patient stops breathing hundreds of times while asleep).  But what about CPAP as a treatment for snoring?

The “Sunday Night” segment on 21 July 2013 was a disturbing reminder of the prevalence and consequences of sleep apnoea. Watching young children suffering from sleep apnoea is somehow more heart wrenching than seeing an adult patient with the same condition -- but equally worrying.

Australia Epidemic

We are all living through what medical literature refers to as 'a hidden epidemic'.  This epidemic affects both genders, all ages, and all body shapes, from lean to obese.  One in every three adults suffer from a significant form of this condition -- yet most people blithely ignore the condition, thinking it's normal.
