Chinese Medicine has a broader view of insomnia than Western Medicine does. Rather than just giving you something to make you sleep, Chinese Medicine looks at why you aren’t sleeping. In order to do that we need to know more about your sleep problems, as well as other aspects of your health.
For instance, do you take a long time to fall asleep, or do you fall asleep easily only to wake up later? Do you wake up once and stay awake for several hours or do you wake up many times per night. Some people have dream disturbed sleep; they don’t remember waking up, but they have many vivid dreams and wake up feeling unrested.
So, today’s tip is to see your acupuncturist if self treatment is not working for you. More at home, natural insomnia cures, next Sunday.
