Sleep and Your Health

How good health starts with quality, restful sleep

We all have basic human needs—food and water fuel us. Shelter protects us. Sleep, too, powers our physical, mental, and emotional health and wellbeing. Without quality, resultful sleep, both your physical body and mind can decline at an alarming rate.

VIA Health Group in Canton, Ohio, sees the effects of sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea firsthand. Patients of craniofacial sleep medicine certified provider, Dr. Jeff Danner may be diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea. They suffer from constant interruptions in their breathing and sleep. They gasp and strain to breathe, finally awakening to take in a few gulps of life-giving air. This process is rightfully scary, and the sufferer requires a prompt and accurate diagnosis, which lends itself to effective and lasting symptom relief and treatment. 

Consider that when people are deprived of restorative, healthy sleep due to conditions such as apnea or insomnia, they are more likely to experience the following ailments or diseases than their well-rested counterparts:

  • Mood swings and changes
  • Depression
  • Anxiety 
  • Chronic fatigue 
  • Migraines 
  • Irritability
  • Headaches
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Chronic pain or fibromyalgia
  • High blood pressure 
  • High cholesterol
  • Poor thyroid function 
  • Dementia 
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Some cancers 
  • Heart failure 
  • Stroke 
  • Obesity 
  • Vehicular and workplace accidents (due to persistent sleeplessness and fatigue)

There are nuances between the symptoms and complications of sleep disorders that are associated with children versus adult patients. We are trained and experienced with knowing, spotting, and acknowledging these differences. Partly, we endeavor to intervene promptly with therapies during a child’s formative years before the lack of quality sleep adversely affects development.
