Treat sleep disorders in a natural way with homeopathy

Sleep disorders dramatically affect the quality of life. As a result, insomnia is a frequent reason for consulting or seeking advice from the pharmacy. If the molecules with medical prescription are numerous, their use must be limited to avoid any habituation. At the counter of your pharmacy, lifestyle measures or therapeutic alternatives may be offered.

Sleep is a special state of the central nervous system, which in humans alternates cyclically with wakefulness. Sleep-wake alternation is acquired gradually after birth, resulting from two phenomena: sleep homeostasis or sleep pressure (a decrease in sleep time increases the propensity to fall asleep and conversely, an excess of sleep disturbs falling asleep) and the circadian rhythm of sleep, dependent on a biological clock, with synchronization by external factors.

Why is it important to take care of the quality of your sleep ?

The consequences of a lack of sleep are easily seen in pharmacies or in doctor’s offices, where the number of patients suffering from sleep disorders or excessive stressis lost. France, in particular, is unfortunately the second largest consumer of benzodiazepines, which is extremely distressing when we know the risks associated with prolonged use of these molecules.

Paradoxically, more and more patients are losing confidence in allopathy following the various scandals of recent years. These patients therefore often turn to natural therapies in an attempt to regain serenity and sleep. Among the latter, homeopathy.

Homeopathy is indeed very effective in this area and will restore well-being and sleep while causing far fewer side effects than anxiolytics and hypnotics.

Insomnia is a regular disorder that, to be diagnosed as such, must occur at least three times a week and have been for more than a month. Otherwise, we speak of “bad nights”. Insomnia manifests itself in three ways that are not mutually exclusive:

  • Delay in onset of sleep of at least 30 minutes
  • Nocturnal awakenings (at least two per night) which make it difficult to fall asleep
  • Early wake up, at least an hour from the scheduled time

This lack of sleep has repercussions the next day, the body not having benefited from all the repairs necessary for optimal functioning during the night: fatigue; concentration and mood disorders …
