Sleep suggestions for March 2011

Sleep suggestion: Be mindful of your sleep

This fascinating news could have real implications for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea, one of the most common sleep disorders. Researchers at the University of Toronto found that the interruption of breathing that occurs with OSA causes the brain to release a chemical called noradrenaline. Noradrenaline helps the body learn to breathe more deeply and fully. There’s a great deal more to investigate here, but research such as this could lead to simpler, more streamlined and effective treatments for OSA and sleep-disordered breathing. This is also a reminder of the power of the mind-and how we can put it to use in the service of sleep.
