Insomnia and the Brain
Struggling with restlessness and the resulting sleeplessness is a painfully real experience for many of us. Relief often needs to be approved, but this should not be a long-term option.
One must correct the problem at the source and make the appropriate lifestyle modifications.
The brain is the control centre of the body and is responsible for much more than we give it credit.
By optimising your brain health, you are cleaning house and reigniting the systematic purpose of the body. When issues arise, nine times out of 10, there is a connection to the brain.
Without sleep, your brain loses its ability to wash and clear out the effects of the day. This is important, for with each night you struggle with rest, each new day becomes that much harder to deal with.
It’s like a pile of washing that progressively gets worse if it is not addressed.

Sleeplessness is often due to an underlying Sleep Disorder.
Insomnia and Sleeplessness
Insomnia is identified as a sleep disorder, where there is a difficulty in falling asleep and remaining asleep.
By experiencing chronic sleeplessness, you¬†prevent the¬†necessary maintenance and repair that occurs during sleep.
This repair and regeneration is crucial for both your mind and body to operate the next day efficiently.
The resulting sleeplessness creates a functional impairment that extends into the waking hours when one is expected to work, engage and interact with others professionally and personally.
Easy tasks become difficult; accidents are more likely to occur and miscommunications cause further depression, anxiety and heightened emotional¬†disturbances.
Sleep Anxiety and Sleeping Pills
Sleeplessness can be a short-term or a long-term problem, depending on the reasons for sleep loss.
Those experiencing insomnia due to trauma, grief and loss, anxiety and external stress, often resort to obtaining sleeping pills as a short-term fix.
They take the recommended dosage – find themselves happily in slumber and all is good. The following night, they lay awake wondering if it is possible for them to sleep again, but without a pill to assist.
Some will fall asleep quite readily. Others will still be in the clutches of their life stressors, unable to shut down mentally.
Restless and fearful of becoming sleep deprived as they had been before, and with so much to lose if they don’t get a good night’s rest, they enter “Sleep Anxiety”.
Whether or not this person could have fallen asleep on their own is no longer a concern, for the sleep anxiety has taken over. They reach for a sleeping pill to take away the fear and fall into the deep rest they so desire.
The pattern continues. The troubled mind may find sleeping pills a much easier alternative to lying awake in worry. However, sleeping pills are only meant for short-term use. In due time, their effects wear off.
Habitual use of sleeping pills creates a tolerance requiring an increase in dosage to gain the same initial effect. Sleeping pills are addictive and cannot be used as a long-term treatment for sleep loss.
Getting to the source of the issue will require one to identify the underlying cause of sleep deprivation, make the necessary adjustments, seek counselling or psychotherapy and obtain a more natural solution.
Natural Sleep Remedies
If your sleep has been hindered and is consistently disrupted, ¬†you will without a doubt find no sleep assistance using herbal remedies.
You have most likely tried the age-old remedies which include an increase in exercise, meditation and removal of stimulants such as coffee and cigarettes.
Medications for sleep, though proven as effective are only to be used as a temporary fix and have the propensity for abuse.
Those with a valid issue regarding sleep will be open to other more permanent fixes.
Our Hormones and Sleep Management
Lack of sleep means we suffer and to what extent, many are unaware.
Losing sleep is far more problematic than we realise.
Not only does it take a toll on our mental faculties and executive functioning but sleeplessness contributes to weight gain and premature ageing.
This is because during sleep there is an increase in the release of growth hormone, which stimulates cell reproduction and regeneration.
The highest pulses of GH occur when we are in deep sleep during the night. Therefore, sleeplessness attributes to us missing out on all that proper cell regeneration and maintenance. Another interesting fact is insomnia¬†increases our fat stores due to the decrease of
Alterations to these two hormones due to sleep deprivation causes the sensation of hunger and encourages people to seek out extra calories.
