Sleep Disorders

Sleep is an important element for a happy, healthy life, yet is often overlooked and undervalued in our busy society. Seventy million people suffer from chronic, severe sleep disorders in the United States alone. That means nearly one of every four Americans has a sleep problem. If you have any issues related to sleep whether due to non restorative sleep, sleeping too much, excessive daytime sleepiness (falling asleep at inappropriate times), difficulty falling or staying asleep, or abnormal behaviors associated with sleep, it could be a sign that you have a sleep disorder.
