Natural treatments for insomnia are seemingly readily available in all shapes and forms. But beware. Many insomnia treatments which offer a permanent solution are simply offering a band aid.
First, let’s look at some of the reasons for insomnia. Sleeplessness can come about from pain, from discomfort, from noise, from a lack of fresh air or many other environmental disturbances. These are easily resolved causes.
Naturally, parents can be anxious about their teenage children spreading their wings. The only resolution here is time!
Here, we are more interested in the less obvious causes of insomnia. Perhaps the most common cause is anxiety. Thoughts endlessly churn around in your mind, usually asking the same pointless question, ‘what if’.
Fear, fright and shock are usually the triggers that result in anxiety. These incidents can be deeply buried and forgotten in your past, even in your childhood. Forgetting painful experiences allows us to function better in our artificial world.
A child can be born anxious particularly if the mother had a fear trigger during pregnancy, especially if she wasn’t able to deal with it.
One of the chronic effects of anxiety is depression. So that means your sleep is further compromised.
Most people reach for sleeping pills, when they have a chronic insomnia issue. And whilst these do knock you out, rarely do you get a real sleep, a refreshing sleep, which is what sleep is all about. Instead, you often wake up with a hang over.
Not only that, but sleeping pills are liver toxic and lower your immune system. Another fact, which few people recognise, is the higher death rate among sleeping pill poppers. A recent study published by the British Medical Journal suggests that those who take the common sleeping pills are over four and a half times more likely to die within two and a half years, than those who don’t take them.
Worse still, depending on the frequency of use, the death risk can be as much as 530% higher than non-users. And to add insult to injury, there is a 35% higher risk of developing cancer. Doubtless, there are less fatal, but none the less serious side effects, as there are with all medical drugs.
So what can you do? Safely, that is.
The best solution, by a long way, is to get to the CAUSE of your sleeplessness cured. This offers the best cures for insomnia. If this cause is deeply buried in your past, as most peoples’ are, then you cannot do this alone. Not only do you need support while accessing these painful periods, you also need guidance to find the best treatment for your particular need.
There is little doubt that good homeopathy offers you the fastest natural treatments for insomnia, by finding the cause. That doesn’t mean it will be gone in a trice. But it will be gone, at a much faster rate than probably any other treatment.
Not only is homeopathic treatment safe, it does not have side effects, does not damage your liver, or any other organ. And it only works by stimulating your immune system. This leaves you in an overall better and healthier condition after treatment, just as should happen.
While there are excellent over the counter homeopathic remedies that can help acute bouts of insomnia (such as the excitement of a child on an upcoming occasion), chronic insomnia is best treated with professional homeopathic treatment.
