Trouble with Sleep? Need to Calm Your Nerves?
We have all experienced it at one time or another – you’re lying in bed, wide-awake, and your mind is reeling. Before you know it, it’s 3 AM and you must be up in sooner rather than later. While an occasional sleepless night is a part of adult life, chronic insomnia can quickly become detrimental to your physical and emotional well-being.
Recent estimates suggest that over 30 % of the adult population suffers from recurring bouts of insomnia. Often, this is caused by an excess of stress and anxiety. This has been deemed a public health problem as the percentage of people who are experiencing insomnia on a regular basis increases every year.
Prescription sleep aids consist of hypnotics and tranquilizers, which can have a plethora of unpleasant side effects and some are highly addictive. Most over the counter sleep aids contain diphenhydramine, the active ingredient in Benadryl, which is indicated for short term use only as long term use has been linked to an increased risk of dementia. Melatonin supplements have become popular in recent years, but often leave a person feeling groggy the morning after.
