San Diego Neurofeedback Therapy for Insomnia
Some estimates show that more than 70 million Americans suffer from insomnia and other sleep disorders at some point in their lives. Most major psychiatric disorders contain a sleep disorder component as well.
Neurofeedback can increase restful sleep
If you suffer from insomnia or other sleep disorders, you most likely feel chronically fatigued. If you suffer from sleep apnea, you may worry that about breathing stopping in the middle of the night with dire consequences. Other sleep disorders may result in thrashing about during sleep. You may wake up hurt and wonder why. If your children can’t fall asleep easily, can’t wake up on time, and the lack of sleep is hurting their school performance, let Thrive Neurolab help.
Sleep deprivation can have serious consequences
Quality sleep is exceedingly important to the well being of the brain and body. A lack of quality sleep can produce overall fatigue, disruption of bodily systems, and anxiety.
In addition, co-occurring conditions can include obesity, pain, hyperactivity, diabetes, moodiness, depression, anxiety, gastrointestinal problems, addictions, cardiovascular problems, and more. You need quality sleep for optimum well being.
Studies show clear relationships between sleep disorders and other conditions. For instance, there is a 20% co-occurrence between sleep apnea and major depressive disorder. Correct diagnosis is crucial. Sleep apnea and insomnia can look like depression with symptoms of low energy, low mood, and concentration problems. In children, sleep disorders may be misdiagnosed as ADHD and mistreated with stimulants.

Insomnia and sleep disorders may co-occur with other physical and mental health issues.
