Campbell, CA, United States, 2010/03/19 - New information portal gathers sleep information from all over the internet. Insomnia, prescription sleep medication, over-the-counter sleep aids, and alternative sleep treatments are covered.
Adaptive Sound Technologies, Inc. (ASTI) announced today it has opened an information portal on its website for all sleep-related subjects, including sleep disorders such as insomnia, and their treatments. On this web page you can select from a library of articles providing easy access to well known, highly respected, sources of medical sleep news.
The articles are written by ASTI staff and summarize works from the most interesting and useful sleep-related sites on the web. Articles are added daily and cover a wide range of sleep issues, from the safety of herbal and prescription sleep aids to how playing a musical instrument can address sleep apnea. Tips on how to deal with various sleep disorders are digested into easy-to-read short works, with links back to the original source material for further reading.
The Sleep Resources page includes real-time data feeds from the National Sleep Foundation, The New York Times, HealthCentral.com, Medical News Today, Sleep Medicine Journal, Modern Medicine, MedWorm.com, Sleep Apnea Information Digest, and SleepStarved.org/.
Sam Nicolino, ASTI CEO and CTO, described the goal of the new portal as being "the first place to go for sleep information and advice. We scour the internet's most respected medical resources, and condense their articles into concise and helpful advice without prejudice."
ASTI (ecotones.com) was founded to develop machines to mask annoying noises and improve the sound environment for sleep. Through their years of research they have accumulated a library of sleep information and resources. Their new sleep portal was created so others can benefit from their sleep research.
Many are seeking ways to improve the effectiveness of their sleep medication or to find non-drug alternatives. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy works well for both groups of insomnia sufferers. Sound based "sleep machines" are often an instrumental part of the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy experience.
