A sleep disorder (somnipathy) is a disorder in the sleep patterns of a person or animal. Some sleep disorders can interfere with mental and emotional function.

Common sleep disorders

The most common sleep disorders include:

  • Bruxism : The sufferer involuntarily grinds his or her teeth while sleeping.
  • Delayed sleep phase syndrome (DSPS): A sleep disorder of circadian rhythm , characterized by the inability to wake up and fall asleep at the desired times, but not by inability to stay asleep.
  • Hypnagogia : vivid hallucinations whilst falling asleep.
  • Hypopnea syndrome : Abnormally shallow breathing or slow respiratory rate while sleeping.
  • Insomnia : While not considered a sleep disorder in its own right, insomnia is characterized by the inability to fall asleep and/or remain asleep for a reasonable amount of time.
  • Jet lag or desynchronosis : Temporary condition resulting in out of sync sleep patterns as a result of rapidly traveling across multiple time zones .
  • Narcolepsy : The condition of falling asleep spontaneously and unwillingly.
  • Night terror or Pavor nocturnus or sleep terror disorder: abrupt awakening from sleep with behavior consistent with terror .
  • Parasomnias : Include a variety of disruptive sleep-related events.
  • Periodic limb movement disorder (PLMD): Involuntary movement of arms and/or legs during sleep. See also Hypnic jerk , which is not a disorder.
  • Rapid eye movement behavior disorder (RBD): Acting out violent or dramatic dreams while in REM sleep.
  • Restless legs syndrome (RLS): An irresistible urge to move legs while sleeping. Often accompanies PLMD.
  • Shift work sleep disorder (SWSD) .
  • Sleep apnea : The obstruction of the airway during sleep.
  • Sleep paralysis : Conscious paralysis upon waking or falling asleep.
  • Sleepwalking or somnambulism : Engaging in activities that are normally associated with wakefulness (such as eating or dressing ), which may include walking , without the conscious knowledge of the subject.
  • Snoring : Loud breathing patterns while sleeping, sometimes accompanying sleep apnea.

According to Dr. William Dement , of the Stanford Sleep Center, anyone who snores and has daytime drowsiness should be evaluated for sleep disorders.

General Treatment

Treatments for sleep disorders generally can be grouped into three categories: 1) behavioral/ psychotherapeutic treatments, 2) medications, and 3) other somatic treatments. None of these general approaches is sufficient for all patients with sleep disorders.

Rather, the choice of a specific treatment depends on the patient's diagnosis, medical and psychiatric history, and preferences, as well as the expertise of the treating clinician. In general, medications and somatic treatments provide more rapid symptomatic relief from sleep disturbances.

On the other hand, some emerging evidence suggests that treatment gains with alternative treatment of insomnia may be more durable than those obtained with medications.

Effective Cure For Insomnia:

Sleep Tracks Sleep Optimization Program

Sleeptracks consists of a well thought out package of strategies and tools to fight troubled sleep and sleeplessness. It takes on the problem of how to get to sleep with a balanced approach rather than resorting to forceful methods to fight the isolated symptoms of your sleeping disorder.

This insomnia treatment consists of a collection of audio programs, each with their own specialized purpose, and a set of bonus programs. This includes a great multimedia course that shows you how to get to sleep when you hit the bed using practical behavior changes and habits that can further help you beat insomnia.

The main program consists of a three-pronged attack on your sleep problems. The 'Insomnia Buster' track helps to re-train your mind during the day, so that you can get to sleep quickly at night.

The 'Fall Asleep' track actually puts you to sleep at night, and the 'Whole Night' track acts as an insurance against waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to go back to sleep. These three together form a very comprehensive way to tackle insomnia.

Some User Comments:

"I am 50 years old and have been on one prescription sleep medication or another since I was 3 months old! I have struggled with my sleep problems every night of my life.

I still have occasional nights where I have trouble falling asleep, but these are getting more rare. (And when I do have trouble, I am finding that is is when I have eaten something with MSG contained in it.)

Now I often fall asleep within the first hour, and if I am awakened in the middle of the night by a noise for instance, I am able to fall right back to sleep. I easily awaken before my alarm clock goes off with about six hours of sleep and feel totally refreshed."

Kevin Ross, Newton, Iowa,

"Before I started using the sleep program, I was waking up 3 or 4 times each night and did not feel too great in the morning.

Since using the Whole Night track, the result has been that I now sleep between five and a half and seven hours per night. The sleep I experience is extremely heavy.

I always wake up at the same time daily and feel very refreshed and ready to face the day"

Rostan McPhee, United States

"Sleep tracks has helped me understand the sleep cycles and apply these approaches. The tracks are very easy to listen to, I have downloaded them onto my MP3 player so they can come anywhere with me! More often than not I don't get to the end of the Fall Asleep track."

Carol Money, Lancashire, UK

"I've been using Whole Night for a few weeks now, while I"m doing a very slow taper off my sleep meds. The tape was amazing. Even though the meds had pretty much stopped working, from the first time I listened to that tape I slept like a baby, better than before my problems started.

I don't know if you remember me but I was the one who said I was an earplug addict. Well, I don't have to use them anymore with the tape!"
