Sleep is critical for us to live our lives fully. Disturbances in sleep patterns reduce the body’s ability to clear toxins and plaque from the brain and often rob the brain of oxygen. Airway-Sleep Disorders are becoming increasingly common and include everything from breathing with an open mouth to asthma, a narrowed airway, sleep apnea, and insomnia, all of which can lead to cognitive issues.
Join Dr. Michael Gelb to learn about the causes and treatments for Airway-Sleep Disorders and how addressing these issues can save your brain.
Presentation will be followed by Q&A.
