Your Natural Sleep Trigger
Do you have trouble getting to sleep? Or staying asleep? You’re not alone. Sleeping a solid 7 to 9 hours every night should be the most natural thing in the world. But insomnia has become an epidemic. And modern medicine does very little to help you restore natural rest. Big Pharma’s answer is to knock you out with drugs. That’s not the same as sleep. “Sleep aids” like Ambien, Lunesta, and others cause dizziness, headache, depression and anxiety. They can lead to suicidal thoughts, memory loss and hallucinations. Some people report sleep-walking, and even unconscious sleep-eating or sleep-dr...

FDA Issues Warning About Mixing Opioid Addiction Treatments With Other Meds
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The Food and Drug Administration issued new warnings Wednesday about the dangers of combining medication for opioid addiction with anti-anxiety medicines and other drugs that also slow breathing and brain activity. The FDA warned that mixing such drugs can cause difficulty breathing, coma or death, so it should be done with caution.

The next time you tell yourself that you'll sleep when you're dead, realize that you're making a decision that can make that day come much sooner.

5 Things People With Chronic Insomnia Want You To Know
Insomnia is the most well known sleep disorder ― affecting as many as 10 percent of all Americans, according to estimates. It’s simply characterized by having trouble either falling asleep or staying asleep. For people who suffer from chronic insomnia, that means at least three nights of troubled sleep per week that lasts for at least three months in a row. But if you’ve never experienced it, you probably don’t truly understand what insomnia feels like. “[There] are really long and upsetting nights,” Susan Rutigliano, a 32-year-old from New York City who has struggled with insomnia sinc...

Will Too Much Sleep Make You Fat?
In last week's article, you learned exactly how not getting enough sleep (less than about 7 hours per night), can cause fat gain, muscle loss and an inability to control the appetite, along with increased risk for a host of chronic diseases such as diabetes and obesity. But the solution is definitely not to begin sleeping as much as you possibly can. Oversleeping may seem like a good idea to fight off the fat gain that can accompany undersleeping, but it's been shown that sleeping in excess of 9 hours per night can be just as damaging to your sleep cycles and your waistline as not getting enough sleep, and in this article...

A New Prescription for Sleepless Americans: Take Advice Not a Pill
For many sleepless Americans and their doctors, the go-to treatment for insomnia has long been a prescription for sleeping pills. But America may now be waking up to a new era of treatment ushered in by a recent recommendation from the American College of Physicians (ACP) that favors behavioral therapy over meds as the first-line treatment for insomnia. This is welcome news. Insomnia is a prevalent and debilitating condition that affects over 60 million Americans, and with associated healthcare costs that are estimated in the range of $30 to $107 billion each year. This overall total could double when the additional $60 b...

When I was eight, my hair caught on fire in the middle of the night. I'd been illicitly reading far past my bedtime and eventually fell asleep with the lamp on. I woke to the awful smell of smoldering hair and ran downstairs in a panic, bursting into my parents' room. "My hair's on fire!" I shrieked. My mom and dad groaned, rolled over and shooed me away. They weren't neglectful. They were simply the weary parents of a budding insomniac. I've had a hard time sleeping through the night for as long as I can remember.
