Ortho-Stop & Autoimmune Diseases
The Influence of Sleep Disruptions and Immune and Autoimmune Diseases
Sleep disturbance is believed to be both a cause and a consequence of various immune and autoimmune conditions. The following have been studied:
- Myasthenia gravis
- Systemic lupus erythematosus
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Type 1 Diabetes
- Sjogrens syndrome

Grinding for 2-6 hours nightly creates a prolonged sleep disturbance. REM sleep is disturbed, which affects other sleep cycles and creates sleep disturbance. Reduced REM sleep affects the brain’s ability to initiate nightly cell physiology and re-energization. This negatively impacts the immune system. Physical, emotional, behavioral, and cognitive health are also affected.
Ortho-Stop will dramatically reduce sleep disturbances from night clenching and grinding caused by TMJ Orange County. This will enhance the immune and autoimmune patient's REM sleep, thus reducing a major factor in the sleep disturbances of these patients.
