Annual “World Sleep Day” March 17, 2017
Dr. Mary Beth Valiulis, a Board Certified Sleep Doctor, will be observing World Sleep Day With a Free Sleep Apnea Screening At Valiulis Sleep Clinic for the whole month of March, 2017.
This year’s slogan is “Sleep Soundly, Nurture Life”. This focus is purposefully broad in meaning, surrounding the message that quality of life with a sleep disorder can be improved, but recognition of sleep’s importance for overall health and well-being must come first. Current research suggests stroke and heart failures is more prevalent in patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Studies have shown that people with insomnia suffer from more symptoms of anxiety and depression that people without insomnia. Sound sleep is a treasured function and one of the core pillars of health. When sleep fails, health declines, decreasing quality of life.
Sleep and energy balance are essential for health. World Sleep Day is an internationally recognized awareness event bringing sleep health professionals and patients together for on important common cause: Sleep.
