Sleep apnea can interfere with many areas of your life. Besides keeping your partner awake all night with your snoring, sleep apnea sufferers may experience constant fatigue during the day and even unexplained weight gain.
Although we may not fully understand the science of sleep as it pertains to unique individuals, we all know how terrible we feel when we don’t get enough. We do know the reason for that! Our bodies miss important parts of their housekeeping routine when we don’t sleep long enough. In the short-term we feel groggy and out of sorts, and we can’t think as clearly or make good decisions. Studies show that habitual lack of quality sleep can raise the odds of developing high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, depression, and diabetes.
As a practice committed to overall health, we are proud to include Sally Hull among our team members. As a hospital nurse, Sally developed a passion for preventing chronic disease in her patients, leading her to pursue her master of science in nursing from Indiana University.

The foods you eat can cause or reduce inflammation. At the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Northern Indiana, we care about your overall health and well-being. We want to educate you about reducing inflammation with nutrition. The Deflame Diet was developed by Dr. David Seaman in response to his recognition that certain foods support inflammation while others support a reduction in inflammation.
It happens every morning: Despite taking ibuprofen before bed and making sure you get a good night’s sleep, you wake up with a headache. Or maybe jaw pain. Maybe even an earache. These are all indications that you may unknowingly be bruxing as you sleep. That’s not a typo, either. Not only can bruxism cause these pains, it can also lead to more severe problems and chronic pain.
As people dedicated to the treatment of sleep disorders, we may come across as obsessed about sleep apnea. There’s a good reason for that, though: Not only can sleep apnea cause complications such as diabetes, weight gain, and hypertension, it can also result in death. That’s not hyperbole, either. Occasionally, apnea sufferers literally die from the effects of the disease.
Sleep plays such an important role in our lives. It’s recommended we spend 7-9 hours of our lives sleeping. That’s about 1/3 of our lifetime! But, when sleep is affected, every other aspect of your life can be negatively impacted. To truly live your best life, you have to prioritize quality sleep. However, some things just may be out of your control.
