Insomnia

insomniaIf you have been suffering from insomnia, you will know the misery of being awake long into the night, unable to sleep and crawling out of bed in the morning when the alarm clock rings, still exhausted. Prescription medications may help get you off to sleep but still leave you waking up un-refreshed and without enough energy to enjoy daily life to the full.

This is because these medications ‘force’ sleep on the body instead of creating the conditions necessary for the body’s natural biochemistry to induce natural, restful sleep, the purpose of which is to allow the body to detoxify and repair so that you can wake up feeling refreshed, full of energy and ready to face the day.

At The Sleeping Better Clinic, our approach to insomnia and helping you to sleep better is based on a new health paradigm, looking at the cause of the problem rather than treating, or masking, the symptoms.
