Safe treatments for insomnia include things like meditation, herbal tea, vitamins, and many other things.
But all the treatments don't mean anything if you still do the same things that cause lack of sleep. The caffiene, the stress, lifestyle, etc... These things will always overshadow any kind of treatment.
Insomnia has always been a frustrating subject for people who have to suffer through it. The majority of the people that suffer from it usually take sleeping pills to help with their affliction. The problem with sleeping pills is that they do much more harm than good.
Insomniacs need true, unmedicated help when it comes to sleep. A sleeping pill is just a crutch.
People suffering from some form of insomnia should feel what a good, solid, deep night's sleep should feel like just anybody else.
They shouldn't have to suffer through numb, sleepwalk-like days. There is nothing worse than getting up and knowing that this is going to be a long day. Knowing that you're going to go through the entire day in a slow, sluggish manner. Knowing that if you don't get a good night's sleep tonight, you're going to have to go through the entire ordeal the next day. That's when panic sets in. And the more you think about it, the more stressed out about it you get. The more stressed out you get, the less chance you have of relaxing and falling asleep. It's a vicious pattern.
But it doesn't have to be this hard. It really doesn't. Insomnia is something thats is perfectly cureable. Insomniacs shouldn't have to just suffer and accept their sleep troubles.
A night of great sleep can feel like you've just purchased a brand new body and mind. Colors can seems cleaner and sharper. There is always an extra pep in your step and you just seem find yourself smiling a bit easier.
