Sleep Medicine

Sleep is crucial to overall health and survival as shown in animal studies. Sleep is essential in memory formation and concentration as it affects every part of the body. Proper Sleep impacts metabolism, helps in maintaining adequate immune function and prevent mood disorders such as depression.
