Insomnia? Acupuncture – the natural answer!
Imagine waking up all rested, your thoughts are crystal clear, and every cell of your body is recharged and vibrates with energy.
Unfortunately for almost third of us a good night’s sleep is just a dream.
The doctor will tell you that insomnia is not considered to be a disease, but can lead to serious mental conditions.
Lack of sleep may affect the quality of life, affect your concentration, lead to accidents behind the wheel and at work.
Acupuncture has the power to improve sleep. Even though it is a known fact, until recently we knew very little about how acupuncture achieves this.
Canadian researchers* uncovered the mystery. They recruited 18 adults suffering from anxiety and insomnia. The volunteers received acupuncture treatments for five weeks.
The study revealed that acupuncture increased the night time levels of the “sleep hormone” melatonin. At the end of the trial anxiety levels were significantly lower and sleep efficiency had increased. Both sleep quality and sleep time had improved considerably.
