BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Scott Fogle from Life Extension, a Fort Lauderdale, Fla-based organization dedicated to the extension of the healthy human lifespan, returns to The SUZANNE Show this week to discuss sleep disorders. His appearance, which is one in a series devoted to natural health and longevity, airs Wednesday, November 14, at 7 a.m. (ET/PT) on Lifetime Television.
According to Dr. Fogle, sleep disorders are the most commonly misdiagnosed conditions in medicine today, with millions unnecessarily suffering from their negative effects. Common ailments include sleep apnea, syndrome leg movement disorder, and insomnia, a particular issue that about 30% of the population suffers from.
"The bottom line," Dr. Fogle says, "is that poor sleep can translate to serious health problems at the worst, or a very disrupted and unfulfilling awake life at the least, with low energy, mood swings, and much more."
To properly diagnose sleep issues, Dr. Fogle recommends a "sleep study," where eye and leg movements, brain wave patterns, and other factors are recorded as a patient sleeps. The study can be prescribed by any doctor and is covered under most medical insurance. Results reveal what Dr. Fogle refers to as a person's "sleep architecture," and can be useful when diagnosing and treating disorders.
Dr. Fogle recommends exercise, avoidance of stimulants, and a variety of supportive dietary supplements such as magnesium, melatonin, botanical teas, and bioactive milk peptides to help support healthy sleep.
