sleep disorders

Approximately 70 million people suffer from sleep disorders.  Possible causes may include:

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea

  • Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder

  • Jet Lag

  • Advanced Sleep Phase Disorder

  • Narcolepsy

  • Non -24 – Hour Sleep-Wake Syndrome

  • Restless Leg Syndrome

  • Sleepwalking

  • Caffeine Abuse and diet


One of the main contributing factors for a mood disorder is sleep deprivation that can lead to fear of not sleeping, sleep deprived psychosis and medical illness.

ABC practitioners will identify contributing factors and help restore sleep by assessing side effects of medications, anxiety, life-style and help identify stressors that may be contributing to not getting the rest you need.

Natural approaches to getting to sleep using herbal remedies, soothing teas and sleep hygiene techniques are always recommended before pharmaceuticals are prescribed.
