Are You Having Problems Sleeping?
Getting a good night’s sleep is critical for one’s overall health. However, millions of people have trouble with all kinds of sleep disorders today.
In fact, the National Sleep Foundation did a 5-year study in which they found that as many as 40 million Americans have at least one of 70 identified sleep disorders.
A majority of adults have trouble falling asleep at least one or more nights every week too. Children are experiencing problems with falling asleep more often today too.

The average time it should take an adult to fall asleep at night should only be about 10 to 15 minutes.
If the person falls asleep faster than that, it is an indicator that they are sleep deprived.
If the person snores loudly, stops breathing at night or tosses and turns a lot, they should go in for a sleep disorder study. Often times the person can have sleep apnea, and not even know it.
In fact, studies show that a 10% of the people who snore every night have sleep apnea, and need medical intervention to treat it. Others just need to change their mattress. Pocket spring mattresses are a good alternative
