Treatment of Insomnia and other Sleep Disorders in NYC ~
Dr. Dmitry Malkin
All of us at some point in our lives have difficulty with sleep. Either we feel like we are not getting enough, or we are sleeping poorly and fitfully, or sleeping too much. For many people, this is a temporary response to some external stress, but for others, a sleep disorder can impact every area of their lives.
The important thing to note is that sleep disorders are usually treatable, and entirely normal. Even so, it can feel strange seeking help for something that appears to be relatively minor in scale. Good sleep is necessary for optimal health and can affect hormone levels, mood and weight, and should be treated with the same consideration as disorders that affect the waking mind.
What is sleep?
We all need it, we all do it, usually every night. For something that is ubiquitous in all humans and most animals, we still understand little about why we sleep. Biologically speaking it is likely that there is a cleansing process that occurs in our brains during sleep, in which waste chemicals are cleared, and valuable new connections in our brains become strengthened. It is the time in our lives when we humans set aside our cares, even our very being, and repair and restore ourselves in preparation for the new day.
A sleep disorder affects a crucial part of us, without which we cannot function. Common sleep issues include:
- Sleep Apnea
- Restless Leg Syndrome
- Night Terrors and Sleepwalking
- Hormonal changes during pregnancy
