When you wake up in the morning, are you refreshed and ready to go, or groggy and grumpy? The latter is far too common for most people, yet this is not addressed in a vast majority of health and fitness plans. Adequate sleep has been shown to be critical to daily functioning and long-term health. Sleep serves numerous roles: recovering energy for the brain, healing the body, clearing waste products, and forming memories. Poor sleep routines have been linked to heart disease, obesity, reduced cognitive performance, worsened mood, and even a shorter life. Creating steps to improve your sleep habits are powerful ways to support optimal health, healing, and well-being.
Sleep Testing With Refined Genetix
The first step to getting better sleep is to check for possible causes. Sleep apnea is a disorder in which your breathing is repeatedly interrupted during sleep. These breathing pauses typically last between 10 and 20 seconds and can happen from 5 to over 100 times per hour. Our simple, easy-to-use, home sleep test can test for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), the most common type of sleep apnea.
We will send the test to your home so you can sleep in your own environment. Our home sleep testing is typically much less expensive than a lab study and is covered by most major medical plans. The test is a patient-friendly wireless device worn during sleep in your own environment. The results provide an accurate profile of your breathing, oxygen, and pulse rate during sleep.
Schedule Your Sleep Testing With Refined Genetix
Not only will Refined Genetix provide strategies to treat OSA, but it will also design lifestyle changes for you to improve your sleep. Exercise and eating correctly are small contributors to the better-night sleep puzzle. We will explore strategies to de-stress, improve air quality, regulate light cycles (sun, blue, and red) to sync your circadian rhythm pattern, and optimize your body temperature to reset your sleep habits so you can get the best sleep of your life.
