Natural Sleep Aids to Cure Your Insomnia
by: Laura K Milton
What exactly is Insomnia?
Insomnia can be defined as having difficulty falling and staying asleep. It encompasses a variety of sleeping disorders from a lack of the amount of sleep you get to a lack of quality of sleep.There are three categories of insomnia
• Transient insomnia where sleeplessness lasts for several days to a couple of weeks
• Acute insomnia where the sleep disorder lasts for several weeks
• Chronic insomnia where the condition lasts for month's even years. Who is affected by Insomnia?
This sleeping disorder is found to affect people of all ages but there is evidence to suggest that women do commonly suffer more from insomnia than men. People suffering from a variety of medical conditions such as anxiety and depression, debilitating diseases, obesity and a weak immune system can increase the chances of suffering from sleep disorder and for longer periods of time.
Sleep deprivation from insomnia can be brought on by both psychological and physiological conditions. Transient insomnia may occur due to current events taking place in one's life. The more serious chronic insomnia may well be the result of an underlying medical condition.
Some causes of insomnia include;
• Substance abuse of drugs and alcohol
• Prescription medications
• Jet Lag
• Changes in your daily schedule
• Your health
• Hormonal changes
• Even your sleeping environment

How to treat your sleeping disorder
Firstly if you are concerned for your health you should consult with your health care provider. Quite often their recommendations will be for medical treatment such as prescription sleeping pills, anti-depressants and over the counter sleep aids.

Treating your insomnia naturally is preferable as you can find the root of your problem, learn to deal with it, treat it and prevent it from happening in the future all the while avoiding the possibility of developing a dependency on drugs and their possible side effects.
