The Triad of Sleep, Stress, and Immune Dysfunction



The Triad of Sleep, Stress, and Immune Dysfunction

It is estimated that episodes of insomnia and other sleep disturbances are experienced by 50% of the population. Poor sleep is associated with an increased risk of physical and mental health conditions and can adversely affect immune health. Sleep disturbances are also associated with increased treatment resistance. Therefore, learning effective ways to assess and treat insomnia and other sleep disturbances is essential for health practitioners.

In this masterclass, Clinical Psychologist Dr Adrian Lopresti will review the interconnection between poor sleep, immunity, stress, and mental and physical health; and psychological, biological, lifestyle and environmental causes of sleep disturbances. Assessment tools to help practitioners identify causes of poor sleep will be covered, and evidence-based treatment options for insomnia will be covered. These include a review of psychological, pharmaceutical, dietary, lifestyle, and nutraceutical options that target individualised causes of sleep disturbances in our patients.

* The content of Clinical Mastery is intended to provide high level information for healthcare professionals and may not include all relevant information in relation to medications/drug interactions/product ingredients. Specific and tailored advice is required for each patient.

Please note that at this time registrations for this live educational event are only open to Australian healthcare professionals and/or students who meet the BioCeuticals account application requirements.
