Health Conditions | Sleep Disorders

The importance of a good night’s sleep can't be overstated. Sleep helps repair and restore the body and mind, keeping us functioning at our best. Yet, so many people struggle with the inability to get enough sleep. A 2002 National Sleep Foundation poll found that 58 percent of adults in the U.S. report one or more symptoms of insomnia a few nights a week or more.

While sleep drugs tend to have risky side-effects, the field of natural medicine offers many safe and effective solutions, tailored to each individual. Natural medicine practitioners tend to be sleuths, adept at uncovering the causes of sleeplessness. Homeopathy, nutrition, acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are some of the ways in which Bastyr practitioners can help you bring rest to a problematic sleep condition.

Some of our tips and insights about the problem of insomnia should help bring relief to those seeking better sleep:
