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.
