Every Insomnia Patient Is Unique

Treating your Sleep Issues

In my experience, I’ve found that every insomnia patient is unique in his or her misery. Don’t get me wrong: everyone who suffers from sleep deprivation is curable. My success rate in treating sleep disorders is strong. That having been said, I also know that treating insomnia is rarely as easy as treating say, a strained back or shoulder, or even gastric reflux. You see, the main culprit with insomnia is that most curious of organs, the human brain. If you’ve been overworking or being too festive, at some point your body will say, Enough! It sends your brain a message that something’s got to change. Losing sleep is a pretty strong signal, and one you’ll eventually have to pay attention to.

So after a good amount of delaying, and rationalizing, you finally say, Okay. That’s when you have to choose: take a pill or heal the underlying issue. But you’re desperate, and exhausted, and your doctor nudges a prescription across the desk at you. Chances are, you’ll be tempted to pick up that prescription just to get some relief.

Unfortunately, that solution is shortsighted. Medication cures nothing. What’s worse, after you take benzodiazepenes or Ambien for twenty-one days, you are officially addicted. That’s right. If you’ve been taking sleep medication, and your doctor didn’t warn you that by day twenty-two you would be hooked, shame on your doctor.

Identifying underlying issues

After over twenty five years of treating sleep issues using only natural methods, I’ve mapped out six barriers to sleep that lie at the root of almost every sleep problem. They are Pain, Anxiety, Digestive Issues, Depression, Drug interactions and Stress. These six issues, whether alone or in tandem, make up 95% of all insomnia. I first uncover the main underlying issue and then I treat that as the key to unlock sleep. The tools I use include acupuncture and safe Chinese herbs, hypnosis (wherein I teach the patient how to lower anxiety and stress), and hormonal balancing. The last piece essentially helps reboot an adrenal system decimated by stress, anxiety and the ensuing insomnia.
