SHR # 1130 ::SPECIAL EDITION :: Snoring And Sleep Apnea Investigated PLUS Impaired Melatonin Production May Play A Role In PMS PLUS Poor Sleep Prevents Memory Consolidation In The Aging Brain ::

Guest: Dr.William Kohler & Dr. Diane Boivins & Dr. Bryce Mander

Dr. Kohler is the Medical director at the Florida Sleep Institute and we discuss the damaging effects to the heart from moderate snoring. This is a wake up call for all my listeners that snoring should not be taken lightly. While Sleep Apnea is also discussed the take away is that ALL snoring has the potential to damage the heart and disrupt sleep. PLUS Dr. Boivins group looked at women with several PMS Dysphoric Disorder and found they had impaired melatonin production. PLUS Dr. Mander's group looked at the effect of memory ON sleep as opposed to what has been traditionally done in reverse. This is really intriguing as we discuss the chicken and egg relationship between sleep and healthy aging.

Does anyone have a recommended store for buying curtains or any kind of cover for windows in a bedroom? I'd love to have my room be much darker so as to encourage melatonin production.

Carl - did you take the flu vaccine poll on the SHR website? I think you have the flu.
