    Launching Sleep Renewal - Breath well, Sleep well, Live well!


    After intensive research into the importance of good restorative sleep, it was found that unrestorative sleep is connected to many health concerns that the majority of us suffer from, such as Hypertension, Diabetes, Stroke, Heart disease and Erectile dysfunction amongst others. These findings made us realise the importance of informing the public about just how important sleep is for your health, and so Sleep Renewal was born.

    Do you wake up and often feel like you haven’t even slept? Do you struggle to fall asleep and then wake up numerous times during the night? Do you find yourself dozing off at inappropriate or inconvenient times? If any of these sounds like you, you might be one of the millions with an undiagnosed sleep breathing disorder. Unfortunately, without diagnosis, there is no treatment and untreated sleep disorders can have serious long term health consequences.

    Health Renewal has recently paid a lot of attention to the important subject of sleep breathing disorders. Two of our newsletters in 2015 were dedicated to describing Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome (UARS) in detail.

    There is overwhelming evidence that both OSA and UARS are huge contributing factors in disorders such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Poor sleep quality and progressive brain damage induced by OSA could also be responsible for poor memory, emotional problems and decreased cognitive functioning. Unfortunately the lack of awareness in the medical community (about sleep disorders such as OSA and UARS), means that the diagnosis is often missed.

    A major part of Sleep Renewal is the fact that we offer home-based testing for sleep breathing disorders. We have streamlined the process in order to make the experience as effortless as possible. New technology allows one to collect all the necessary data, to make an accurate diagnosis while you sleep in your own bed. This Home Sleep Study will confirm whether you do indeed have OSA and/or UARS, allowing you to treat potentially harmful sleep disorders.
