Insomnia is nightmare for those who cannot sleep at night or regularly wake up in the middle of the night. I was experienced such situation before and I understand how serious it is.
In order to cure insomnia with natural treatment, much emphasis has been placed on the usage of nutrition, exercise, and aromatherapy. Nutrition with regard to sleep entails the type and timing of meals. People who engage in regular eating patterns are generally observed to have good sleep.
In contrast, sleep-deprived individuals are more likely to ingest high-calorie foods like sugars and greater quantities of food because of the belief that food will replenish energy deficits. It is recommended that individuals avoid ingestion of heavy meals before bedtime (they induce digestion, which requires metabolic energy and is alerting).
Some people seeking for food which promote better sleep but do they actually exist? There are many folktales about milk or other foods leading to good sleep. However, milk or turkey contains a chemical that is involved in generating a sleep-inducing agent in the brain.
To seek for insomnia natural treatment, you could found plethora of herbal and aromatherapy remedies from grocery stores or homeopathic vendors. More popular sleep-inducing herbal and aroma agents include valerian, hops, chamomile, lavender, passion flower, and lemon balm aromas
Furthermore, meditation and yoga approaches can also provide insomnia natural treatment. Both of them have received a lot attention in the last several years. Meditation and yoga also require some directed instruction and practice to master the techniques. Similar to relaxation training, meditation and yoga can induce a relaxation response, but by a different pathway.
The history of meditation and yoga is rich with philosophical, spiritual, and mythical proponents to its use and practice. Self-study and practice is very important. To gain the benefits of these techniques, an individual must refocus her thoughts, emotions, and physical responses while engaging in the various positions that promote relaxation and mental and physical balance. Continued practice makes this a skill that can be invoked when needed. It is important to note that yoga and meditation both require directed instruction.
In addition to yoga and meditation, exercise is also a helpful factor in insomnia natural treatment. Exercise (on a consistent basis and done four to six hours before bedtime) not only improves sleep but also promotes deep sleep.
Furthermore, individuals who exercise regularly have been found to report lower incidences of mood disturbance (anxiety and depression) and sleep problems. The positive benefits of exercise do not stop here.
In addition to the health effects exercise has been found to have on the heart, lungs, blood pressure, and muscle mass, exercise also increases feelings of control, independence, and self-esteem and improves sleep efficiency (time spent in bed/time spent asleep) and ratings of sleep quality (excellent, good, fair, poor sleep).
