Sleep: The Final Frontier

April 12, 2021

Dr. Thye Schuyler is a board-certified neurologist and sleep specialist. He is the Medical Director of the Salem Hospital Sleep Center, specializing in the treatment of all sleep disorders for adults and children.

Topics covered include: sleep hygiene, sleep apnea, the importance of sleep for health, how to improve our chances of getting good sleep, and how to manage ourselves (and reduce anxiety) when sleep doesn't come. 

What Dr. Schuyler reveals to us (beyond the logistics of it) is the mystery of it. Sleep, it turns out, is a very personal experience. No two people have exactly the same challenges even when they have the same "condition." The treatment is often equally individualized. In many ways, to work on our sleep is to work on aspects of ourselves.
