Insomnia
Lying in bed unable to sleep is agonising. Insomnia is a sleep disorder characterized by an inability to sleep or to remain asleep for a reasonable period of time. A lack of sleep can adversely affect our physical and emotional health, it can leave us feeling tired and very irritable, our concentration can be reduced which can make us more prone to accidents and also the making of rash decisions; it can undermine our immune systems so that we are more susceptible to infection.
Insomnia can be caused by fear, stress, anxiety, medications, herbs, caffeine, depression, emotional or mental tension, work problems, financial stress, life-style factors such as too much light or noise, an uncomfortable bed, an unsatisfactory sex life and sometimes it just occurs for no apparent reason.
Are there natural therapies or remedies that may be helpful? Holistic practitioners place a firm emphasis on diet and lifestyle, but there are a number of therapies and remedies that may also be helpful in gently helping the body to regain its natural biorhythms. Therapies such as homeopathy, acupuncture, nutritional therapy and dream therapy are among some that are certainly worth investigation. Relaxation techniques and massage, Feng Shui, diet changes and magnets have also had good success in helping those with insomnia.
