It is not possible to be physically and emotionally healthy if you do not get enough sleep. Most people need 7-8 hours of sleep a night. I consider insomnia to be an emergency. Many people believe that insomnia cannot be cured. They even resort to pharmaceuticals to get to sleep. These drugs have many side effects, but I do understand the desperation to get to sleep. There are many natural options to get to sleep.
Acupuncture often improves sleep in the first few treatments. It will take a little time to resolve the root cause of insomnia, but there is no reason to continue to suffer. It is a very treatable disease.
Chinese medicine treatments always include sleep treatment. Acupuncture is holistic. It treats the whole person. If you have pain, insomnia, fatigue, anxiety, and depression, these ailments can be addressed all at once. The healthy function of the body is restored.
This image shows Longan Berries. This is a Chinese herb that is used in herbal formulas to improve sleep and calm anxiety. This is not taken as a single herb, but it calms the heart energy to help you relax.
There are dozens of herbal remedies to improve sleep, and I also recommend acupressure points to help you get to sleep and stay asleep.
The first book I wrote was about insomnia. There are many over the counter herbal remedies for sleep, but NONE of them works like Chinese medicine. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs work to treat the cause of insomnia. Acupuncture also treats fatigue, anxiety, and stress at the same time. Chinese medicine is a holistic treatment.
