When we sleep, the brain removes these toxins. Everyone experiences a sleepless night every now and then. We’ve got stuff on our minds – work, family, money, etc. However, people with sleep disorders rarely, if ever, get a good night’s sleep. That can be frustrating and may be dangerous.

People who are suffering from sleep disorders struggle to get restful sleep. Most people with sleep problems are tired. They can be frustrated and cranky. The horrible night’s sleep of insomnia affects people in every aspect of their lives. Work suffers. School suffers. Relationships suffer. Snoring keeps the bed-partner awake. Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea can kill. Daytime sleepiness can cause accidents. Parasomnias can cause injuries.
