The Apeiron Sleep Genomics Report looks at various enzymes that affect your sleep. Questions that are answered by this report include the following:
- Does my body's natural circadian clock have a natural propensity towards "early to bed, early to rise" (morning lark) or "late to bed, late to rise" (night owl)?
- What is my body's natural propensity regarding how long it takes to fall asleep?
- What is my body's natural propensity for sleep duration?
- What is my body's natural propensity for disrupted sleep and "micro-awakenings"?
- What is my body's natural propensity for excessive daytime sleepiness (narcolepsy)?
- What is my body's natural propensity for excessive nighttime movement (restless legs)?
The good news is that answers to the above questions only identify what your statistical probabilities are for problems in the various areas. It is necessary to correlate the above propensities with your actual clinical symptoms (complaints) and laboratory values. But the biggest value in knowing the answers to the above questions is that it can guide precise epigenetic interventions (treatments) that specifically target the problem areas, rather than taking "shotgun" advice like "if you have this complaint, then some people have found that this prescription/treatment/supplement/herb will help; we don't know what will help you, but lets throw some mud on the wall and see what sticks; you have the following diagnosis, so let's prescribe the drug that the FDA and your insurance company has approved for this diagnosis."
