The Doctors discuss a shirt that claims to be the solution to better sleep. Four woman who all have trouble falling and/or staying asleep, Holly, Sarah, Lara and Lynn, put the question of “does this shirt work?” to bed!
All four woman join The Doctors in the audience to discuss their results after sleeping in the shirt for about a week.
Sarah says she woke up before her alarm a couple of times so, “maybe it did something?” She clarifies that it definitely did not help her fall asleep. Lara complained it was uncomfortable and actually made her sleep worse. Holly agreed with Lara. She said “Maybe two nights I had an okay time falling asleep and woke up feeling okay but overall I didn’t notice a ‘wow, this shirt is amazing and it works!’” Lynn agreed. She was hoping it would help with her disrupted sleep caused by menopause but it did not!
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork shares that only two of the women, Sarah and Holly, had the real product, but it didn’t seem to matter! He calls on sleep specialist Dr. Raj Dasgupta to weigh in on this shirt. Dr. Raj quotes Travis himself by saying “In medicine when it seems too good to be true, it probably is!”
Dr. Raj adds that with all the claims the company makes about the shirt like increased REM sleep, longer sleep time and decreased inflammation, they should conduct studies to prove it. The company has limited evidence-based information.
Dr. Travis asks Dr. Raj for a free tip. “Don’t be frustrated if it doesn’t work for everyone, sleep is very individualized,” he says.
