In today’s episode you'll hear from Dr. Stephanie Green, a family medicine specialist in Long Beach, CA
Dr. Green has been practicing medicine for nearly 20 years, but in the past decade her practice has increasingly embraced sleep studies as she’s seen the incredible impact that getting the right kind of sleep has had on her patients.
You’ll hear Dr. Green talk about how disturbed sleep can result in low oxygen levels and put you at an increased risk of breast cancer, heart disease, anxiety, depression and other health issues.
You’ll learn about sleeping patterns, sleep hygiene and you’ll hear real life stories of her patients who have experienced life changing results just by treating their sleep.
Dr. Green’s interest in sleep and sleeping disorders started when her father was forced to complete a sleep study prior to surgery.
Shocked that her father, a retired physician, had no idea nor recognized the symptoms of his own severe case of sleep apnea she began to research this area with Sleep specialists. The results have been so astounding that I couldn't stop listening to her.
She has so much good information to share that this podcast became a two part series.
In part one you’ll learn:
-What sleep apnea and UARS are
-Who is really susceptible to sleep disorders...it’s not you dad’s syndrome any more
-What a natural circadian rhythm is
-How to practice proper sleep hygiene
