If you aren’t getting a good night’s sleep, you aren’t alone. According to the National Institute of Health, 60 million adults in the United States suffer from insomnia. There is a rise of insomnia among teenagers, too. Insomnia, by itself, is not a disease. It may be a symptom of physical and emotional imbalance. Some of the symptoms include:
o Difficulty falling asleep
o Difficulty staying asleep
o Waking up too early in the morning
o Restless sleep
When sleep doesn’t come as naturally as it once did, it can be frustrating. Sleep deprivation over a period of time can cause serious problems. Many times people find themselves in a downward spiral trying to figure out why they can’t sleep, and being focused on not sleeping causes them to be awake more, feeling even more frustrated.
Many people turn to prescription medications. These often come with undesirable side effects which range from morning grogginess to serious problems like vomiting and even seizures. There’s also the risk of drug dependence.
An alternative solution is the use of hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy is gaining popularity as a tool to deal with insomnia without invading the body and without the risk of adverse side effects. Because insomnia is often caused by stress, hypnotherapy is especially effective in learning relaxation techniques. If the cause is deeper, hypnotherapy goes right to the deep part of the mind to correct the problem at its source.
Through hypnotherapy, you can once again experience the natural act of falling asleep, staying asleep, and getting the restorative rest that you need, waking up refreshed and energetic. It’s quick. It’s safe. And it’s very effective.
