The importance of quality sleep for the brain and body cannot be overstated. Sleep is one of those things that can be both cause and symptom – a lack of quality sleep can lead to fatigue, anxiety and a disruption of bodily systems, all of which can result in a lack of quality sleep… and the cycle becomes vicious. People who suffer from insomnia or sleep disorders (such as sleep apnea) suffer from a host of co-occurring conditions, including pain, obesity, cardiovascular problems, diabetes, hyperactivity, low sex drive, moodiness, anxiety / depression, addiction, gastrointestinal problems, and more. For stable mental health and a full life, you need your sleep!
In the Amen Method, we see every patient as a product of his or her whole being, including biology, psychology, social connections and spiritual life. We have always taken a biomedical approach, looking for physiologic and environmental factors that may be adversely affecting a patient’s mental health.
If you are not getting sleep, or if you are not feeling refreshed after sleeping, Amen Clinics can help. Since sleep disorders so often occur alongside other problematic physical and mental health conditions, at Amen Clinics we take the necessary time and do thorough testing to really understand each patient’s challenges and get to the root of the problem. Our goal is to get you back to restful sleep without the use of sleeping pills or sedatives, and we do that by using a combination of the following therapies:
A cost effective, non-invasive, safe method of delivering pure oxygen at greater than atmospheric pressure to improve or correct virtually any condition where the body is affected by poor circulation.
A powerful way to detoxify the brain and body and boost energy by delivering concentrated levels of key nutrients straight into the bloodstream.
Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes
Guided support in changes to diet, exercise and stress management that instills brain-healthy habits and improves the body’s systems overall.
Supplements / Medication
Targeted supplementation with key nutrients or judiciously prescribed medications can be critical to improving many of the body’s systems and functions, including those of the brain.
It is important to get to the root of the sleep problem with accurate diagnostics. Brain SPECT imaging (which stands for single-photon emission computerized tomography) is a special kind of study that helps us better understand how your brain works. SPECT can specifically help people with insomnia or sleep disorders by:
Dr. Amen’s own SPECT scans look healthier than they did 20 years ago. But he’s not the only person who has benefited from a healthy brain program – there is no shortage of people who have seen dramatic results.
The Amen Clinics biomedical evaluation is part of the Amen Method four circles approach to mental and physical health. The Amen Clinics full evaluation includes the biomedical evaluation as well as brain SPECT imaging to give us special insight into the state of your brain function.
We treat each patient as an individual, and take a full personal history before beginning SPECT imaging or recommending any treatment program. Call us today at 1-866-260-8227 or tell us more to schedule an appointment.
