Sleep Better — no medication needed
Have you ever asked yourself any of the following questions:
- Why don't my sleep medications help me sleep anymore, or help me go to sleep when I take them?
- Is there anything I can use to help me sleep better without causing side effects that impact my waking life?
- Is there anything besides drugs that I can use to help me to sleep?
"Is There Anything that Can Help Me Sleep?"
If you are asking yourself this question, you are not alone. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention considers insufficient sleep to be a public heath epidemic. The CDC estimates that between 50 and 70 million people are asking, "Is there anything that can help me sleep better?" on a nightly basis.
Understanding the root causes of sleep problems can be difficult. Indeed, many have already tried a host of sleep remedies prescribed by traditional doctors and are lying awake at night wondering, "Are there any alternative therapies that can help me sleep?"
Many have found that certain drug prescriptions help them sleep at night, but find that the side effects have a dramatic impact on their waking life. Oftentimes, when a doctor hears a patient say, "I need something to help me sleep at night," they immediately turn to the failsafe of modern western medicine — drugs.
People are discovering more and more that there are limitations to the traditional therapies that are prescribed by Western medicine. The same is true for the epidemic of sleep deprivation. It's not that western medicine doesn't work; it's just that everyone's metabolism is different and sometimes alternatives are needed to find answers to sleep issues.
This is really the crux of the matter. While pharmaceutical drugs help some people sleep at night, the effects can be temporary. For others, drugs might not help them sleep at all. This, compounded with unwanted side effects, can make a person's sleep problem worsen over time. The reason for this vicious cycle is simple. Drugs only treat the symptoms of poor sleep, not the root cause.
For people who have been taking drugs that help them sleep at night for many years, it can feel like there is no way out. You might fall into this category. If you find yourself feeling like your sleep patterns have come unraveled and are begging for someone to "help me sleep at night" it might be time to consider an option that can help you restore a healthy, natural sleep pattern.
Healthy, Natural Sleep — Resetting Your Natural Rhythms
This is the job of the brain, and is accomplished when there is a natural rhythm of neurological patterns established through a chemical balance. When this balance is working as it should, sleep is a natural process. When it ceases to function normally, you lie awake in bed wondering, "Should I take something to help me sleep?"
Falling out of a healthy sleep pattern happens slowly. Western medicine often relies on "taking something" to help restore balance, but the truth is that when a drug is introduced into the body it only masks the real problem and throws balance further out of whack. This is the reason drugs often work well for a time, but sleep problems later reappear worse than they were initially.
Because the root of the sleeping problem has not been addressed, the drug therapy proves insufficient. This is because the natural rhythms and chemistry of the brain have been interrupted and replaced with whatever drug was introduced into that chemistry. The chemicals act as a crutch for the brain, which no longer can operate to its fullest capacity. Subsequently dosages have to be increased when sleep again becomes problematic. However, dosages have limits where they become unsafe, when you reach this point you are back at square-one, only far worse off than you were to begin with.
All of which begs the question, "Is there anything besides drugs that can help me to sleep?"
