Sleep rejuvenates our body as well as our mind. The requirement for sleep varies from person to person; however most normal adults need seven to eight hours of sleep every night. Insomnia is a nagging disorder that can make it hard to fall asleep, hard to stay asleep or both. With insomnia, you usually awaken feeling un-refreshed, which takes a toll on your ability to function during the day. Insomnia can not only sap your energy level and mood but also adversely affect your health, work performance and quality of life. Therefore we need to be aware of the condition and its natural solution.
Many adults experience short-term insomnia at some point, but some have long-term (chronic) insomnia. Common symptoms include: difficulty falling asleep at night, awakening frequently during sleep, getting up too early, not feeling well rested after a night's sleep, daytime tiredness or sleepiness, irritability, depression or anxiety, difficulty in concentrating, forgetfulness, increased errors or accidents, tension headaches, frequent digestive disorders and ongoing worries about sleep.
Insomnia may be the primary problem, or it may be secondary due to other causes. Common causes of insomnia include: Stress, Anxiety, Depression, underlying medical conditions including Arthritis, cancer, Heart failure, lung disease, Gastroesophageal reflux disease, overactive thyroid, Stroke, Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease, sudden change in environment or work schedule, irregular sleeping habits, effect of medications including antidepressants, antihypertensive, anti allergic, stimulants, corticosteroids, addiction to caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, and eating too late at night. Risk of insomnia is greater if you are a woman or you are over the age of 60. Nowadays, all treatments merely target the symptoms, without addressing the root cause of the problem. These medicines have side-effects too. However, effective solution has been achieved through Fundamentals of Ayurveda, Unani and Therapeutic Yoga which is completely safe and natural. 'Naturoveda Health World' successfully employs a unique combination of these three systems to provide effective and long-lasting results without any side effect.
