Sleep Well With Sleepezy

What's the Cause of Insomnia?
August 08, 2007

Hello and welcome

Before I forget there'll be a new, no cost, download next month "The Safe Way to Getting Healthy"

One of my readers contacted me the other day and asked, "How can you claim to cure insomnia when insomnia isn't a disease?"

Well, she's right in theory, you can't "catch" insomnia after all. I had a suspicion that she had never suffered from insomnia. Hmm, I was right, she just wanted to do some research!

All us insomniacs KNOW that insomnia is one of the most chronic "diseases" we can ever experience. It's so hard to cure because everyone's sleep disorders are different.

So what the heck is Insomnia?

Insomnia is actually a set of symptoms. It's a consequence of being unable to fall asleep or being unable to maintain sleep. It is also used to describe unrefreshing or poor quality sleep.

Since insomnia is not a disease how can we cure it? Well we can't cure the symptoms, that's why taking sleeping pills is a very short term solution and will never result in a cure for insomnia. But we can examine the causes of insomnia and eliminate as many of them as possible.

Causes of insomnia are many and varied and range from pain, being too hot or too cold, stress and anxiety, eating the wrong foods at the wrong time, uncomfortable mattress/pillow, outside noises, having too much light in the bedroom, watching TV in bed, not getting enough light early in the day...... As you can see there's a lot to know!

The consequences of sleep deprivation are well known so I won't repeat them here. One of the lesser known ones is that sleep deprivation can lower immune system functioning - most important if your suffer autoimmune diseases like type 2 diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis, or even if you're having more than your fair share of cold & flu.
