Being unable to fall asleep is the worst nightmare one can have. Many of you spend the night staring at the ceiling. Well, it’s time to stop tossing in your bed and sleep better.
“Approximately 30% of American adults suffer from insomnia, with 10% saying that it results in consequences during the daytime.
This means that almost 1 in 3 of every American adult is not getting a sufficient amount of sleep and it is severely affecting 1 in 10 of them. Almost half of Americans complain about not getting enough sleep, regardless of an insomnia diagnoses.”
You may use medication, but beware of the side-effects like changes in appetite, tingling in limbs, constipation, diarrhea, inability to maintain balance, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, flatulence, headache, heartburn, memory issues, stomach ache, uncontrollable shaking, nightmares and weakness. Should we add more.
Insomnia and sleep deprivation
Insomnia is a condition describing people who are unable to sleep due to numerous factors. Some wake up during the night, while others wake up too early.
Insomnia is caused by biological, psychological or social factors, including anxiety, depression, hypertension, medical issues and diseases.
Staying awake at night affects everyday life, and causes symptoms like fatigue, moodiness, irritability, anger, anxiety, poor concentration/memory/cognitive function, lack of energy, headaches or migraines, upset stomach, and lack of coordination.
The situation can get worse with every day that goes by. For some people, chamomile does wonders. Others like nice music, but we strongly recommend that you use nutmeg to treat your insomnia and sleep deprivation.
