An Insomnia Overview

By:
Insomnia affects more than 30% of the general population giving massive amounts of people difficulty falling or staying asleep. If not being able to falling asleep isn’t enough, the condition we know insomnia makes these people wake up frequently during the night for no reason at all, as if they wanted to take up and see what time it was. However, having trouble sleeping isn’t the only problem this condition causes as it irritability and difficulty concentrating.

Before turning 18 years of age, most people have experienced some form of insomnia. The sleep disorder doesn’t only affect adults, but it’s also present in a lot of children. Out of the entire population that has difficulty falling asleep, 10% of these people have chronic insomnia.

Like any other medical condition, insomnia has its fair share of different types as well. The main three are transient, intermittent, and chronic and you should know about each different one before even attempting to cure yourself. Determining which problem you’re faced with will be the result of the treatment option you consider, and that’s why it’s so important.

The first two types that were mentioned are transient and intermittent and both are relatively short-term or occurring on and off. For either of these, you do not want to go to a doctor and it will more than likely go away on its own as it’s triggered by stress or a mood change, so save your hard earned money. If your condition is more severe and has lasted a long time and frequently, you’ve probably got the sleep disorder known as chronic insomnia. Now it’s time to lay your options on the table and they are to read up and apply what you’ve learned or go to a doctor to be basically told the same thing in medical terminology that you may not even understand.

If you’ve decided to cure insomnia on your own, then first of all I want you to know you’ve probably just saved yourself a lot of time and money. Prescription medications are about all a doctor can really give you and they’re not recommended by them or anyone for that matter. They become addictive if taken for long periods of time while at the same time they become less and less effective. This is why it’s much better to look at a non-addictive healthier route.

As for the home made cures, they come in many forms and fashions for insomnia and you’ll have to see what works the best for you. Your chances are that several of these remedies will work for you and worst case scenario is that only one alternative works for you. Herbal remedies are helpful for many people and they’re good for a variety of reasons including their cheap and non-addictive. If you wish to improve your sleep habits, you should only use your bed for sleep and sex to train your mind that your bed’s where you sleep and sleep only. The list of alternatives is rather long and only a few were mentioned here, so get out there and find your insomnia remedies so that you can get a better night’s sleep.
