Get Better Sleep to Achieve Better Health
Quality sleep is essential for optimal functioning. Sleep is an incredibly important and restorative stage of daily life. During sleep the body’s metabolism is regulated, the immune system receives a boost, and brain processing kicks into a higher gear, consolidating memories and learning and pruning synaptic connections for optimal physical and cognitive function. Scientists have established important links between sleep deprivation and a large number of physical and emotional disorders, including obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, immune disorders, anxiety and depression, reflecting the extreme importance of sleep to our emotional and physical well-being.
When you’re not sleeping well, your entire life is affected. You may feel unfocused, tired all the time, or just have a lingering sense that you’re not at your best. Sometimes the source of the problem is a medical issue, such as sleep apnea. Many people dealing with anxiety or increased stress in their lives also suffer from a difficulty falling asleep. Since the brain is constantly learning new behaviors, what begins as a temporary bout of insomnia can become a chronic condition after the mind becomes accustomed to lacking sleep.
The Importance of Sleep
A good night’s sleep is like a tune-up for your entire body. During a night’s rest, your metabolism is regulated, memories and information are retained, and your immune system receives a boost. Not getting a good, peaceful night of rest keeps you from performing at your best. If you’re struggling with sleep issues, Wellfirst Sleep Diagnostics can help you find the solution you need.

Our Diagnostic Solutions
If a doctor suggests you undergo a sleep study, or polysomnography, you may be wondering what is involved in this test and what to expect. Sleep studies help diagnose sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, periodic limb movement disorder, narcolepsy, restless legs syndrome, insomnia, and nighttime behaviors like sleepwalking and REM sleep behavior disorder. Often these disorders cannot be identified with a normal office visit—your doctor needs to gather more conclusive evidence while you're asleep.
A sleep study is a non-invasive, overnight exam that allows doctors to monitor you while you sleep to see what's happening in your brain and body. For this test, you will come to our sleep lab that is set up for overnight stays.
