The Power of Sleep by My Southern Health


The average adult requires a minimum of 7 hours or more of sleep each night. An insufficient amount of sleep leaves us vulnerable to attention lapses, reduced cognition, delayed reactions, and mood shifts...YIKES, SOUNDS A LITTLE SCAREY AND POSSIBLY DANGEROUS.

Lack of sleep has been linked to a higher risk for certain diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and poor mental health.

We are lucky to have our own expert sleep specialist, Dr. Sherin Howett, DO. There are many factors that affect the quality of our sleep, if you are having problems with sleep, give us a call! We are currently accepting NEW sleep medicine patients!
