Is it true, SLEEP is a good barometer to your overall health? Evidence certainly suggests it is and it could be a problem for many of us because as we become older we are going to find it more of a challenge.
Generally speaking, someone who is healthy will sleep much better than someone who isn’t.
Fear not – if you have one of these problems then there is a solution.
Everyone has experienced trouble sleeping. Perhaps not all the time because we are all different. It’s quite normal and can be caused by a variety of reasons including stress, partner snoring or other factors.
However if you have trouble sleeping on a regular basis then there is a good chance you have an official sleep disorder especially if it transfers into your normal daily life routine.
What many don’t realize is that Sleep Disorders have a habit of causing more than just sleepiness.
The human body is tuned to sleeping at night and waking during the day.
Scientists have now proven our body’s sleep patterns are regulated by light and dark.
Light stimulates a microscopic nerve pathway from the eyes retina to an area in the brain called the hypothalamus and specifically an area called the Suprachiasmatic Nucleus (SCN). The SCN creates signals to sections of the brain controlling hormones, body temperature and a variety of other functions which play a role in making us feel sleepy or wide awake.

As a snorer I can certainly relate to the anxiety that can be experienced when it is time to “turn in”. In the vast majority of instances the person most anxious in situations like this, is the non snoring partner. It is further complicated when both you and your partner suffer from snoring.
Perhaps you and your partner are lucky and don’t have any problems falling asleep when you go to bed. If that is the case then you are in the minority I would have to suggest.
If you are not one of the lucky ones then Alteril might be something you could try to help you settle for the night.
