Updated: Aug 20, 2019

Have you suffered from difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep or early morning awakenings? Unfortunately, these are symptoms of insomnia that could irritate your nights and disturb your days. Most cases of insomnia are related to poor sleep habits, depression, anxiety or lack of exercise; but in some cases psychiatric and medical conditions are the cause of this common condition.

How do you know what is the underlying reason of you staring into the black abyss counting sheep? With telemedicine, the first step to treatment is as simple as picking up your phone and speaking with a healthcare provider.

Telemedicine: proven effectiveness to cure Insomnia:

Managing insomnia and curing it may seem impossible to some people. According to National Sleep Foundation, around about 30% of the world population suffers from a spectrum of insomnia from a mild to chronic degree. Most people have difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep or early morning awakenings with nearly half of insomniacs experiencing two of three of these symptoms. Insomnia, unlike most illness, is more irritating because it causes fatigue, mood swings, and affects the mental and psychological health of the patient.

In a recent conference held last June 2019, the Associated Professional Sleep Societies’ “SLEEP 2019 Conferenceheld in San Antonio supported the effectiveness of telemedicine in curing insomnia through cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
