CBT for Insomnia

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia

Pill Vs Skill

Sleeping pill is less effective than the skill of sleeping using Cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia(CBTi). CBTi has consistently been proven to be the most effective first-line treatment for chronic insomnia.

It is the classic Pareto principle (also known as the 80–20 rule). that is 80% people get better with CBTi for insomnia.

And, in three major studies published in the Journal of the American Medical Association and Archives of Internal Medicine that directly compared CBT to sleeping pills, CBTi was more effective than sleeping pills. CBTi also has no side effects of a sleeping pill.
