Sleep Disorders

Recent data shows that 4 in every 10 Australians frequently suffer from impaired sleep. Research has shown that a combination of lifestyle medicine strategies and medically approved plant-based medicines can effectively enhance the quality of sleep.

Sleep disorders are amongst the long list of chronic diseases that are increasing on a global scale and are usually associated with lifestyle behaviours and environmental factors. Lifestyle medicine offers evidenced-based behavioural changes that can enhance the quality of sleep through targeting the underlying causes and environmental factors.

While lifestyle interventions offer a long-term treatment for sleep disorders, medically approved therapeutic plant-based medicines can improve sleep in the short term. A recent randomised study conducted by the National Institute of Integrative Medicine (NIIM) showed that medicinal oil derived from the cannabis sativa plant improved both time and quality of sleep in adults with insomnia.

At LifeMed, we focus on addressing the distal determinants (the underlying causes) of sleep disorders, as well as the proximal determinants (the symptoms).

Dr Mehdi is a specialised GP and has been authorised by the TGA to prescribe therapeutic plant-based medicines. He has a special interest in lifestyle medicine which focuses on preventing, treating and reversing chronic conditions with lifestyle interventions.

If you are suffering from sleep problems, book a consultation to discover how plant-based treatment options and lifestyle medicine can assist with enhancing the quality of your sleep.
