Insomnia has dramatically increased as the stressors in our daily lives have increased. A combination of factors, including poor diet, toxic environments, increased EMF (electromagnetic frequency waves) through devices, lack of exercise, hormone and thyroid issues, adrenal fatigue, infectious disease and autoimmune disorders.
Americans work hard and our lifestyle isn’t one that allows for downtime and good sleep routines. Our bodies and brains have simply become too used to being “wound up”, so falling asleep or staying asleep can be challenging.
Sleep problems are very common. According to The American Academy of Sleep Medicine, 30 to 35% of Americans have brief symptoms of insomnia. 15 to 20% of Americans have a short-term insomnia disorder, which lasts less than three months. 10% of Americans have a chronic insomnia disorder, which occurs at least three times per week for at least three months.
