Alternative and Complementary Therapies for Insomnia
There are many natural remedies for sleeplessness. Aromatherapy, herbal medicine, homeopathy, yoga, and relaxation techniques have all been shown to help with sleep disorders without the side effects of sleeping pills. Natural remedies, combined with improvements in lifestyle, may improve your sleep. If your sleeping problem has not been resolved within a few weeks, you should seek professional help.
Complementary treatment for insomnia is aimed at restoring your mind, body, and emotions to a state of balance. This allows you to function more efficiently, heal more effectively and remain more in control of your waking and sleeping life. Sleep disorders tend to be resolved as a consequence of this restoration of balance rather than as a direct result of taking a sleep remedy.
Remember that natural remedies do not provide miraculous cures. Some people may see an improvement in their sleep problems in a very short time; for others it takes time.
Lifestyle modifications are an integral part of any complementary therapy. Causes for insomnia such as bad diet, too many cigarettes, too much alcohol, too little exercise, and poor stress management have to be corrected.
There are several alternatives you have when you take the natural approach. Not all remedies are effective for everyone and not every system of medicine suits everyone. Use common sense. Try the therapies to which you feel most attracted.
