Sleep disorders are classified into sleep disorders with and without organic causes.
At our practice, we only treat sleep disorders that are not organic: sleep problems; sleep disturbances and / or poor sleep quality.
Often, sleep disorders are considered as accompanying symptoms of some mental or physical illness. Almost every depressive disorder is associated with sleep disorder. Frequently, sleep disorder is known as the first symptom of depressive disorder.
What is considered as real sleep?
There is considerable variation on the perception of what “adequate, good” sleep is. For example, many people have the notion that it is essential to sleep 8 hours without waking up in between. However, this claim has been proven to be completely false. Sleep changes with age and often becomes easier as we grow older. Waking up several times a night is completely normal. There are people who feel fully rested after only sleeping for 6 hours; others need 7 or more hours of sleep. However, the amount of sleep a person needs does not only depend solely on the sleep duration but also on the quality of sleep. People, who sleep quietly at night, often need less sleep than those who sleep restless and are plagued by sleep disturbances. Therefore, it is believed that “short sleepers” sleep more quietly and thus more effectively than people with longer sleep duration.
An important indication your body sends out that shows that you have slept enough, is the level of how well-fitted you are over the day- with the exception of a small midday low – you still feel fit and relaxed. Therefore, only the subjective feeling is decisive for us!
The function of sleep is controversial
Why exactly do we sleep is still a matter of debate among researchers. It is likely that our body and mind regenerate themselves during sleep. Thus, our experiences of the day are sorted and stored when we sleep while our brain grows new nerve connections. On the other hand, superfluous information is sorted out.
Adequate sleep should also have an effect on the metabolism: those who sleep sufficiently have a lower risk of developing diabetes or becoming overweight. Therefore, lack of sleep has serious consequences
Those who sleep too little on a regular basis quickly suffer from significant sleep deficit. This brings some far-reaching consequences. People who suffer from lack of sleep often:
- Age faster
- Are more susceptible to diseases
- Have a lower ability to concentrate
- Are more irritable, stressed and difficult to make decisions
