We all cherish sleep. There’s nothing like taking a night’s rest into your soft, fluffy bed after a whole day’s activity. It’s just simply soothing.
Unfortunately, not every one is always able to get a good night’s rest. In fact, the statistics show otherwise….
Scary Sleep Statistics
According to The National Center on Sleep Disorders Research:
- 35% of American adult are only able to sleep less than 7 hours per night for each 24 hour cycle
- Sleep and insomnia disorders affect 15-20% of Americans who are more likely to suffer from chronic physical, mental, and emotional disorders
- Lack of or improper sleep can lead to improper brain function, depression, and cognition
On The Flip Side….
Proper sleep maintains and boosts brain function, cognition, overall mood, and helps younger children and adults to continue growing healthily.
Realizing the importance of sleep, recent research has begun investing more into sleep health and how it functions and affects us, both positively and negatively.
The general census of most physicians is that a person needs at least 6-8 hours of sleep. Younger children and adults need more sleep whereas older adults and the elderly can suffice with less.
To sleep either less or more than 6-8 hours of sleep is not recommended. For the average person each sleep cycle lasts 8 hours. Getting 6-8 hours will give you the full rest and energy boost a person needs.
However sleeping less than that is incomplete within that sleep cycle. Sleeping more starts a new cycle which may cause you to be even more tired than before.
For example, if one sleeps 9 hours, it will be as if he slept for 1 hour, since he is 1 hour into his/her new sleep cycle.
Besides sleeping at the right hours, doctors have advised to sleep in fully dark, cool rooms, not to drink coffee or other caffeinated drinks in the late afternoons, and maintain a regular sleep schedule, among other tips.
But even so, a person still may sometimes not be able to fall asleep so easily.
Even beyond the medical parameters, sleep can affect a person’s spirituality.
Indeed, in many religious circles and writings, such as Kabbalah, sleep can additionally give one major spiritual rejuvenation in order elevate the world around us.
Up till now, we’ve seen the importance of sleep in our mental, emotional, physical, and even spiritual life and some medical tips.
Now, let’s see how with homeopathic treatment insomnia and other sleep problems can be alleviated!! Clinical evidence guaranteed.
When it comes to having a lack of sleep which results in extreme tiredness, Cocculus can restore energy quickly.
This lack of sleep is usually a result of restlessness, having anxiety for others, and/or from taking care of others and being concerned about them.
Usually, the restlessness may stem from having anxiety for others and worrying about their welfare.
Similarly, people who are physically exhausted from caring for the sick should take this remedy.
Cocculus is also great for those traveling and experience jet-lag or other forms of travel sickness.
There’s nothing like having a nice, hot cup of coffee in the morning to wake you up and to start off the day. Now imagine if I told you coffee can help you sleep…..whoa!
Well coffee, as a homeopathic remedy, can really help! Known homeopathically as Coffea cruda, it is by far one of the best remedies for acute insomnia and sleeplessness.
This is especially true if one feels alert and wide awake during the night. That’s when this remedy comes in handy.
As a matter of fact I have prescribed Coffea cruda to two different people recently who were having acute insomnia every night. After just 1-2 doses, both men told me they had the best sleep that they ever had in a very very long time.
Both were taking medications for years and nothing helped. One little Homeopathic sugar pellet was enough to get the job done.
Contrary to your thoughts right now, Homeopathic Opium actually does not have any physical trace of opium left.
Rather, it just contains the essence and energy of opium, as investigated in homeopathic provings [experimentation].
Unlike the other two remedies listed, Opium is a sleep remedy for those who have more of a chronic sleepiness. They’re the type that are “always out of it.” They tend to space out and act and function sleepily. Opium is able to fully revive a person like this.
Opium can also be used for head injuries that result in sleepy side effects, as well as from comas, seizures, and other critical acute situations. A CM is recommended in these situations since these cases could be life-threatening.
Ironically, Opium can help treat chronic drug users with a slow-minded mentality. A 6c or 9c potency is suggested for these cases.
Lastly, for breathing issues and bowel movement issues, especially in children, consider Opium.
