We help you through the day and night
Chronic insomnia (sleep disorder) is said to occur when sufferers fail to get sleep at least three nights in a row (and more frequently) per week for a period longer than six months. The rest phase is used by the brain to process impressions of the day and to separate the important from the unimportant.
Our brain needs sleep to regenerate and process information and transfer it to long-term memory. Almost one in three Germans regularly suffers from problems falling asleep or sleeping through the night. The (long-term) consequences are severe and range from exhaustion and fatigue during the day to weakening of the immune system and reduced stress resistance.
The pressure of suffering is high, as everyday life can often no longer be mastered due to nightly sleep disturbances and the associated fatigue. The fear of not being able to sleep again quickly leads sufferers into a vicious circle that leaves both physical and psychological traces. If those affected are not adequately treated in time, chronic insomnia can lead to depression, among other things.
To improve the quality of sleep as quickly as possible, sufferers quickly turn to sleep pills, which can help in acute phases. Long-term efficacy studies, however, indicate that certain sleep aids can lead to long-term dependence or further promote sleep disorders. Learn more in our patient information on sleep disorders
