According to the National Institute of Health approximately 40 million Americans report suffering from long-term, chronic sleep disorders. Additionally, an estimated 20 million report occasional sleep problems. Are you suffering from insomnia? A common sign of insomnia is the dreaded inability to fall asleep, lying awake in bed for sometimes hours. Another classic symptom is waking up after a few hours of sleep, in the middle of the night, and not being able to fall back asleep right away.
