Sleep Disorders

At Buddhi Clinic we are able to bring together a unique skill set in managing Sleep Disorders

Overview

Good sleep is necessary for optimal health and can affect hormone levels, mood and weight.

Sleep problems, including snoring, sleep apnea, insomnia, sleep deprivation, and restless legs syndrome, are common. The most important sleep disorder that often (not always) presents with snoring is sleep apnoea, which if left undiagnosed and untreated can be life threatening.
The other prominent sleep related condition is narcolepsy which consists of the triad of catalepsy (sudden loss of muscle tone), excessive daytime drowsiness and sleep paralysis). The most common sleep related problem in clinical practice is stress induced sleep dysfunction, people with mental health symptoms having difficulty in getting to sleep or staying asleep.
More complex problems of sleep include REM sleep behaviour disorder (seen in Parkinson’s disease and other neurodegenerative conditions), in which there is florid acting out of dreams, epilepsy and/or panic disorder in sleep, hypnogogic & hypnopompic hallucinations and vivid dreams.

Assessment

Signs

There are many ways to help diagnose sleep disorders. Doctors can usually treat most sleep disorders effectively once they're correctly diagnosed.

Diagnosis

The diagnosis requires thorough sleep lab evaluation and while clinical, brain imaging, electrophysiology, blood tests to rule out reversible causes or indeed contributing factors and a thorough pre-rehabilitation assessment including evaluation for co-morbidities (associated conditions) will be required in all instances. At Buddhi Clinic our assessment includes standard outcome indicators for activities of daily life, quality of life, neuro-disability and mental health.

Treatment

Apart from drug treatment, the Buddhi Clinic approach includes Neuromodulation for mental health and neurological contributors, psychological therapy for mental health contributors and a host of holistic interventions for weight loss, lifestyle, diet and holistic relaxation.
