Having trouble falling asleep at night or sleeping through the night is one of the most common sleep problems facing Americans. It is estimated that one third of the US populations is not getting enough quality sleep. Everyone experiences sleep disturbances once in a while. They are usually linked to an increased level of stress. Normally these disrupted sleep patterns diminish as the stress fades. But sleep problems that extend to one month or longer are classified as chronic insomnia. While not a disease on its own, insomnia is linked to serious illnesses such as heart disease and depression. People who suffer from chronic insomnia are also more accident prone, especially behind the wheel. For many, the only option for treatment seems to be addictive medications that come with troubling side effects. But Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, author of "From Fatigued to Fantastic" and medical director of the national Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Centers, offers some remedies for insomnia that do not carry the undesirable side effects of prescription medications.
Someone suffering from insomnia is battling more than just daily fatigue. Because serious medical conditions are linked to insomnia it is worth the research to learn about the causes and possible remedies in order to keep your health in check and live a full and productive life.
