Sleep disorders are on the rise, especially in women. Atlanta Sleep Medicine Clinic reports that women work on an average of 41.7 office hours a week and if you add in their household duties it brings it to 65-68 hours in the week. Men sit at a comfortable 48 hours in comparison.
Sleeping pills are a Billion Dollar business according to Consumer Reports . They are expected to reach $52 Billion dollars within the next three years. But as these figures are rising, non sleepers, are looking for more natural solutions. Melatonin a natural supplement, has shown figures that have quadrupled in the last four years.
Melatonin is made naturally when the light is low or dark. Backlit devices, mobile phones, computers and TV’s confuse the brain that it is still light and melatonin levels drop.
Women can also divide their life into 3 phases, menstrual, pregnancy and menopause. 79% of women reported an impact on their sleep (for the worse) when going through any of these life changing phases. They suffered from discomfort, pain, worry and some menopausal women suffered hot flushes every 18 minutes.
