INSOMNIA: A NATURAL SOLUTION
The ability to rest properly is crucial to our physical and mental health. When we don’t sleep properly, it impacts on our lives and on the lives of those around us, both at home and at work. Our solutions for sleep disorders utilize no chemicals.
Q. Are there potential issues around using medications for insomnia?
- Drugs for insomnia mask the problem without eliminating it.
- The cause of the sleeplessness, now hidden, continues to grow.
- The invariable side effects of the drug break down the body further.
Q. Is There A Long-Term Solution To Insomnia That Does Not Involve Drugs?
Yes. The three non-chemical systems that I use are:
A) The Acupuncture Model
Chinese Medicine identifies 32 different syndromes for sleep issues. Whether you suffer from difficulty getting to sleep or else wake up too early, acupuncture balances the body and mind and reboots the nervous system. Since eash person experiences sleeplessness uniquely, we address this, diagnosing your issue and treating from that perspective. There is no ‘One Size Fits All.
B. The Hypno-therapeutic Model.
During hypnosis, the client is always in control and aware of what is going on. As a Certified Hypnotherapist, I use hypnosis and/or Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to send sleep-positive messages into the subconscious. This allows the client to reconnect with her or his natural sleep cycle. Whether as an adjunct to acupuncture or as standalone therapy, Hypnosis is highly effective for breaking the insomnia cycle.
C. The Nutritional Model
It is no secret that most food is riddled with pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and carcinogens. This compromises glands/hormones such as the pineal, the thyroid and adrenal, not to mention certain minerals. They are all important for sleep. We test the health of the organs and body using AK (Applied Kinesiology, which PT’s and MD’s also use). Using targeted supplements, we repair damage while leeching out heavy metals, chemicals and food allergens from your system.
Q. How will I know which system will be best for me?
During our initial consultation we discuss your comfort levels, and work from there. Our goal is for you to see discernible shifts in your sleep patterns quickly. I often test to see whether the nervous system is ‘available’ for repair. If it hasn’t been, this often explains why seemingly ‘correct’ therapies have been ineffective, or else took but only for a short time. Once we handle what I call the Sisyphus Syndrome (most people don’t have this), we can proceed with treatment.
