The Real Problem with Insomnia


Do You Have Difficulty Sleeping?

When I was having difficulty sleeping I did a lot of research on insomnia. What really amazed me was all the problems that insomnia can cause.

Sleep, or rather difficulty sleeping can affect you in a number of ways.

For example, people who suffer from insomnia are more likely to experience a stroke or asthma attack late at night or in the early morning. Researchers believe that this could be due to changes in hormones, heart rate, and other characteristics associated with difficulty sleeping.

Sleep and Disease

Certain types of epileptic seizures seem to be triggered by insomnia and sleep deprivation.

Sleep also seems to affect certain types of epilepsy. Research seems to suggest that REM sleep helps to prevent seizures starting in one part of the brain from spreading to other parts of the brain. On the other hand deep sleep seems to promote the spread of these seizures.

People suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, cancer, and head injuries often experience difficulty sleeping and insomnia.

While there is a correlation, experts are unsure whether the disease is the root of the problem or if the drugs given them to control symptoms of the disorder cause their difficulty sleeping.

They just know that the two go hand in hand.

Sleep and Your Immune System

Think back to the last time you had the flu. You got tired and sleepy, right?

That’s what infectious diseases like colds and flu do to us.

According to sleep researchers, this probably happens because cytokines, chemicals our immune systems makes to fight infections, also induce sleep. This sleep allows you body to conserve energy and the other resources it needs to fight off its invaders.

Sleep and Mental Disorders

Almost all people with mental disorders have difficulty sleeping. This is especially true for those experiencing depression and schizophrenia.

Even slightly depressed people find themselves waking up early in the morning and then can’t get back to sleep.

Insomnia and Mental Disorders

There is a strong correlation between the amount of sleep a person gets and the strength of the symptoms of their mental disorder.

There was a special on the National Geographic channel where a man made a very long hot air balloon flight. As a result this man was highly sleep deprived. This man did a number of very crazy things, including trying to get out of the balloon at 20,000 feet.

As a result of his extreme sleep deprivation he also experienced hallucinations. These hallucinations lead to paranoia unlike anything found in what would otherwise be considered a healthy person.

What to Do if You Suffer from Insomnia

If you have difficulty sleeping the best thing you can do is consult a sleep expert or your doctor. At the very least they can diagnose if your insomnia is a result of something psychological or something that’s going on in your body, such as a disease.

Of course if your body’s being affected then you need to get help.

On the other hand if you are having difficulty sleeping because of psychological issues it may not be as easy to decide a course of action. That’s because doctors often prescribe medications rather than dealing with the underlying problem.

There are a number of natural cures you can try including advanced hypnosis and Neuro Linguistic Programming.

One of the reasons many of my San Diego clients come to see me is to help them deal with their insomnia. That’s because advanced hypnosis and Neuro Linguistic Programming techniques have been found to be very useful to help people deal with their underlying issues. _____________________________________________________________________________
