If insomnia torments, the general state of human health worsens. The causes of insomnia are very, very many. These are emotional experiences, and all kinds of diseases – you can list endlessly.
A person who suffers from insomnia often does not realize that he himself provokes its appearance. Therefore, it is worth considering in more detail several implicit causes of insomnia, which a person may not even be aware of.
If insomnia torments, perhaps the person leans on food before going to bed. During sleep, the body should receive the rest it needs. However, the intestine, loaded with food, does not provide an opportunity to relax, as it is forced to process food. Due to intestinal activity, the nervous system cannot calm down. Therefore, it is recommended to refrain from food at least two hours before going to bed.
If insomnia torments, it is possible that the room in which a person is sleeping is poorly ventilated – in conditions of lack of oxygen, the nervous system experiences stress, which prevents sleep.
Before going to bed, it is recommended to refrain from consuming invigorating drinks – alcohol, coffee, tea, soda, etc. If a person has problems falling asleep, it is better to drink a glass of warm water with a teaspoon of honey, a cup of chamomile broth or a glass of warm milk before going to bed.
If insomnia suffers, magnesium may be lacking in the body. Particularly often, hypertensive patients taking diuretics suffer from this condition – magnesium is excreted from the body along with urine. With a deficiency in the body of magnesium, anxiety and anxiety increase, which prevents normal falling asleep. For this reason, at the same time as diuretic drugs, it is necessary to take stabilizing agents – aspartame or panangin. Such drugs can compensate for the elimination of magnesium from the body. In addition, magnesium is found in lettuce, nuts and zucchini.
Before going to bed, in order not to disturb the nervous system, you must refuse to watch horror films and crime. Better to take a good book to read.
A warm bath with an extract of pine needles, with a decoction of chamomile, mint and hops, as well as a proven “sleeping pill” – lavender, calms the nerves. The bath should be taken one hour before going to bed.
It is useful for insomnia to inhale the aroma of the following remedy. In a glass bottle, pour two teaspoons of vodka, a spoonful of drops of valerian, three drops of lavender oil, mint and lemon balm, one drop of lemon and one drop of orange oil. Cork and shake. Before going to bed, inhale the aroma of this liquid. Keep the composition in the refrigerator.
If insomnia suffers, you should not immediately run for sleeping pills, since such drugs are addictive. With the development of addiction, a person is forced to constantly increase dosages, which negatively affects health.
If insomnia suffers, the cause of which is emotional depression or frustration, then before going to bed, you need to throw all these thoughts out of your head. If, lying in bed, again and again to scroll through the negative events in your head, then the effect of them will only intensify. It is necessary to try to mentally replace negative events or memories with bright dreams and plans. You can imagine how you go on vacation to warm exotic countries, you can dream of a country outing. By the way, experts in the field of somnology – the science of sleep – have proved that if there is water in a person’s dreams before falling asleep – a sea, a river, a lake, even a pool – then a person falls asleep much faster.
So, if insomnia torments, it is necessary to find its cause and try to eliminate it without drastic measures.
