TCM & Chronic Insomnia
If you have been struggling with chronic insomnia, you are aware that insufficient or poor quality sleep leads not only to irritability and exhaustion, but also to muscle stiffness and impaired cognitive function and can even lead to fibromyalgia and other significant health problems. Commonly, Western medicine will search for a physical or emotional problem causing the sleeplessness, but TCM recognizes that insomnia can stem from a fundamental imbalance of energy, or qi.
Prescription Medications vs. Chinese Herbal Formulas
Sleeping pills and anti-depressants are commonly prescribed for insomnia and other sleep disorders. However, prescription medications can lead to dependence and require higher doses to achieve the same effect. Everybody responds differently to the many treatments available and you may find a better sleep aid and relief through natural based treatments such as acupuncture and herbal remedies. An effective course of treatment for insomnia is a combination of acupuncture and one of many Chinese herbal formulas.
A popular Chinese herbal formula that provides relief from sleeplessness is An Shen Bu Xin Wan In Chinese medical terminology, this herbal formula helps to enrich the blood that flows to the heart and liver while regulating and calming the liver meridian. In more Western terms, this means the herb helps increase red blood cell count and calm emotions. This combination not only helps you fall asleep faster, but also remain asleep for the duration of the night.
Although a Chinese herbal approach is an effective relief from symptoms of sleeplessness and insomnia, it is important to remember that a TCM diagnosis and treatment is formulated specifically for each individual patient.
