Sleep disorders affect as many as 70 million people in the United States. Sleep problems may be temporary due to stress or they may indicate a chronic health problem.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is one of the most common sleep disorders. With Sleep Apnea, tissue in the back of the throat collapse and blocks the airway during sleep. When this happens, people briefly stop breathing, sometimes over and over again throughout the night. They gasp for air and may resume sleep, but it is a fitful sleep that denies them the benefits of an energy-restoring, health sustaining sleep. Left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, weight gain and other health risks.

Other Sleep Disorders include Insomnia, Snoring, Restless Leg Syndrome, Sleep Walking, and more. The good news is that most sleep disorders can be diagnosed and effectively treated.
