What are Sleep Disorders?
Sleep disorders are problems with sleeping, including trouble falling or staying asleep, falling asleep at the wrong times, sleeping too long or abnormal behaviors during sleep.
How will we determine if I have a sleep disorder?
Dr. Cohen feels that the traditional medical approach to sleep disorders, sleeping pills, is not a good solution for her patients suffering from this condition. Instead, Dr. Cohen performs an exhaustive physical and lifestyle evaluation on her patients, in addition to a blood test that establishes the patient’s hormone and neurotransmitter levels. Once these baseline levels are determined, Dr. Cohen works together with the patient to craft a specialized treatment plan that may include supplemental neurotransmitters, intravenous supplements, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy and behavioral sleep coaching. Some of Dr. Cohen’s patients have also found relief from their sleep disorders through acupuncture and meditation.
