Are you waking through the night or taking more than 20 minutes to fall asleep? Or thinking all night and waking at the slightest noise? YOU HAVE INSOMNIA. Over 30% of Australian adults have insomnia. It’s not normal and an insomnia cure can be quick and simple.
Most of our clients don’t even realise they have insomnia. They think it’s normal to wake more than once a night, or to need time to “wind down”, or use sleeping medications or alcohol to get them to sleep. They usually come to us with other issues like depression, stress, fatigue, poor immunity or poor concentration and memory. Very few recognise the link to poor sleep and look for an insomnia cure.
We all know what happens to children who haven’t had enough sleep. They become angry, exhausted, irrational, emotional and extremely irritable. Adult brains respond exactly the same, the only difference is we learn to regulate our behaviour as we grow up.
Sleep = health and happiness. It’s that simple.
Did you know there are 4 brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) and multiple hormones that regulate sleep? Most insomnia sufferers have heard of melatonin, which helps us fall asleep, but very few have heard of GABA, norepinephrine or acetylcholine. These brain chemicals allow us to fall asleep easily, stay asleep overnight, and wake refreshed. Sleeping medications help you to fall asleep and stay asleep but impair sleep quality so we wake groggy and unrefreshed. Why not look for an insomnia cure that fixes the problem instead of masking it by taking drugs?
