Are you or someone you know, looking for a natural alternative or addition to managing your health?
You may have sleep apnoea. Individuals who have sleep apnoea often unknowingly experience partial or complete blockage of the throat, due to the muscles relaxing too much and collapsing on itself. This obstruction reduces or stops breathing for a short period of time on multiple occasions throughout the night. It leads to a reduction in blood oxygen levels and lowers the quality of sleep.
General Practitioner (GP) referrals for our sleep testing service are welcome at The Friendlies Chemist.

If this sounds like you, you may have sleep apnoea. But what is sleep apnoea?
The Epworth Sleepiness Questionnaire is one of the tools used to diagnose sleep apnoea. A score of 10 or more puts you at a higher risk of sleep apnoea. Find the questionnaire below
Naturopaths treat the patient holistically, therefore treating the person as a whole rather than just their symptoms. Naturopaths can treat a wide variety of issues and quite often approach them differently to how an orthodox doctor would. Using natural remedies, a Naturopath can treat gut issues, decreased immune function, mental health, fatigue, pain, insomnia and wellbeing.
