Could any of these statements apply to you?
- I usually wake up tired because I toss and turn most nights.
- I have trouble falling asleep, then wish I could sleep all day.
- I often fall asleep before bedtime, while reading or watching TV.
- I work a night shift and have trouble sleeping during the day.
- My snoring keeps my partner or spouse awake.
- My dentist says I grind my teeth.
- I have trouble staying awake at work.
- I wish I could take more naps.
- I’ve caught myself nodding off while driving.
If you answered “yes” to one or more, you may have a sleep
disorder. We’re here to help you get the rest you need. We want
you to regain your vitality and live the long and healthy life you deserve.
Good Sleep is Your Basic Right
Every human being needs food, clothing, shelter — and good sleep.
But if you’re like most people, your life is hectic. It’s
easy to say…
“I can’t afford the luxury of a full night’s sleep every
night. I try to catch up by sleeping late on weekends.”
But sleep doesn’t work that way. Quality sleep
every night helps you wake up
every day ready to face your work and family responsibilities with high energy,
a sense of well-being, and less stress.
It’s a win-win — and it’s a victory for you.
You Are Not Alone
Sleep disorders are more common than you might think.
Among adults and children, 25-30%* have problems sleeping that can lead
to injury, disability, chronic illness, and worse.
You’ve probably heard of “sleep apnea.” It’s a
breathing disorder that causes snoring and frequent sleep interruptions.
More than 15%** of the population has some form of apnea. It’s a
leading cause of daytime sleepiness, high blood pressure, and mental impairment.
Left untreated, it increases your risk for heart attack, stroke, atrial
fibrillation, diabetes, congestive heart failure, and death.
Drowsy driving is a result of sleep deprivation that often makes tragic
headlines. Drivers who fall asleep at the wheel cause more than 100,000***
accidents a year.
But these problems don’t have to exist.
Sleep disorders can be effectively managed — or cured — with
proper diagnosis and treatment.
