It is estimated that nearly 70 million Americans suffer from some type of sleep disorder. The most common sleep disorder is Insomnia.
Insomnia is diagnosed when a person has difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep or getting sufficient restorative sleep.
Not getting enough sleep is associated with numerous chronic diseases and conditions, including, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, obesity, depression and pain.
It is no surprise that getting enough sleep is an essential part of maintaining your good physical and mental health.
