Many people suffer from a bout of insomnia at one time or
another. If your sleep is starting to affect your daily tasks or even health,
acupuncture and Chinese herbs could be the solution.
Insomnia can occur for a number of reasons: stress, medications,
menopause, chronic pain and so on. And with no sleep or continually feeling not
well-rested in the morning can have a snowball effect on your overall health.
You may notice not only lack of energy but decreased concentration, weight gain
and increased irritability. Poor
sleep has also been linked to high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity.
Acupuncture has a great track record of treating sleep problems without the
side effects associated with prescription
or over-the-counter sleep aids. In fact,
Oriental medicine aims to balance your body’s natural sleep cycle.
For example, if you find yourself waking at
the same time nightly, let’s say 1:30 AM, that is the time in Chinese Medicine
of your Liver. Your liver is in charge of your emotions. Therefore if you are
stressed, your liver is not settling down as it should and you wake in the
middle of the night. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs can reduce your stress, help
with the insomnia and make you feel like you have control over your situation –
and you can take whatever problems arise head on.
