Is a sleeping disorder where suffers either have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. This then affects the energy level and function during the waking hours. For many insomniacs they have difficulty closing their eyes and stopping the ‘mind chatter’. Common causes of insomnia include: chronic stress, depression, anxiety, caffeine, pain, blood sugar irregularities, overeating, indigestion, liver toxicity, drug and medication use. Addressing the causes of insomnia is more effective long term than just taking tranquilizers or sleeping tablets. A herbal and nutritional approach can help address the causes of the insomnia and help to promote restful, regenerating sleep patterns.
