Getting a good night’s sleep is as important to your health as the food you eat and the air you breathe. Yet as many as 20% of adults suffer from some type of sleep deprivation or sleep disorder such as sleep apnea, insomnia, limb movement, snoring, and others.

Left untreated, these disorders can affect your quality of life and may result in more serious medical conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes.
