Insomnia cures are needed for this growing epidemic. More than a third of adults are suffering from sleep problems. It's a scary statistic, however for a large proportion of the population it has become the norm.

So what can be done to counter this growing problem? Well for a whopping 40% of insomniacs, over the counter sleeping pills are relied upon to aid sleep. But how effective are they? And are they really good for you in the long run? Surely there is a better way!

Most of these over the counter sleeping pills are for short term sleep troubles. So for the long term insomnia sufferer it's not a viable option. In the short term taking over the counter sleeping pills can cause drowsiness and grogginess.

In the long term, an insomnia sufferer will develop a tolerance to excessive use. What is needed is a long term solution...no scratch that...a PERMANENT solution which does not require medication.

Do natural insomnia cures exist? The answer is yes. There are other ways to cure your insomnia such as acupuncture, reflexology, aromatherapy, hypnotherapy and more.

Natural insomnia cures do exist, it's just a matter of finding them. So if they exist why are there still so many people suffering from insomnia? Well fact is only 5% of insomniacs seek help from their doctors.

That might seem strange, but insomnia sufferers tend to live with it and tend not to address their problem. Unfortunately most sufferers don't realize the seriousness of insomnia until it develops into a long term illness.

Most sufferers treat insomnia like a cold or cough, thinking that it can be cured with a few pills. It's easy to fall into this way of thinking because we believe what we see. We turn on the TV and see sleep aids advertised by big corporations and we instinctively assume that there is a quick fix solution and that the big corporations are not just in it for the money.

Truth is there is no such thing as a quick fix solution. But, there are solutions out there if you look and are prepared to try other methods. In fact the most effective methods out there are non-pharmaceutical. Many people have cured their insomnia with alternative therapies. There are many alternative solutions out there if you are prepared to look.
