Sleep problems, including snoring, sleep apnea, insomnia, sleep deprivation, and restless legs syndrome, are common to millions of Americans. Lack of sleep can take a toll on nearly every aspect of daily life. Research has linked sleep deprivation to car accidents, relationship troubles, poor job performance, job-related injuries, memory problems, and mood disorders. Recent studies also suggest sleep disorders may contribute to heart disease, weight gain, a lower ability to fight infection, and diabetes.

Sleep disorders are conditions affecting how much and how well you sleep. The causes range from poor habits keeping you awake to medical problems disrupting your sleep cycle.  Common causes of sleep disorders include hormonal imbalances such as menopause, thyroid problems, excess cortisol; sleep apnea, mood disorders, stress, and restless leg syndrome.

A thorough history and examination is needed along with appropriate diagnostic testing to determine the cause of sleep disturbances.  A comprehensive treatment regime including diet and lifestyle changes, herbal supplements and bioidentical hormones can dramatically improve both your quality and quantity of sleep.
