Rescue insomnia and torment, and return your dreams
There are many reasons for insomnia, which can be summed up in the following aspects: First, spiritual factors: fast pace of modern life, fierce competition, and various contradictions gradually increase, making people’s mental situation in a certain high tension state, itAnxiety, depression, neurosis, etc. continue to occur, and the symptoms of insomnia naturally follow.
More commonly, temporary psychological fluctuations, such as emotional instability, depression, excessive excitement or anger, can cause insomnia.
This is the most common cause of insomnia.
Second, physical factors: physical exhaustion or physical illness, such as pain, itching of the skin, cough, high blood pressure, wheezing, vomiting, diarrhea, etc.
This type of insomnia often accompanies the disease, and is closely related to the outcome of the disease.
Third, environmental factors: such as changes in living habits, change of residence, sound and light stimulation.
Fourth, chemical factors: taking excitable drinks (alcohol, coffee, strong tea), drugs (ritalin, amphetamine, ephedrine, ginseng) and smoking before bedtime also cause insomnia.
It should be pointed out that the above factors often work in synergy to make the symptoms of insomnia more serious and even prolonged.
For example, business people face shopping malls that are more “cruel” than the battlefield every day, and their emotional changes are inevitable. Sometimes they look as stable as Mount Tai, but their hearts have already turned over.Wine is inseparable from the mouth, and coffee and strong tea are inseparable for clarity.
The four factors that cause insomnia, which account for three at a time, have naturally become the “severe disaster areas” of insomnia.
Insomnia can make people feel tired, restless, unwell, listless, sluggish in response, headache, and lack of memory during the day. Its biggest impact is mental, which can cause schizophrenia and depression.
So how can we improve insomnia?
The key is to start with daily habits.
First of all, we must maintain a good attitude of optimism, face pressure correctly, and avoid psychological imbalance due to setbacks.
At the same time, develop good sleep hygiene habits, such as keeping the bedroom clean, quiet, away from noise, avoid light stimulation, etc .; avoid drinking tea and alcohol before going to bed.
The bedroom should be dark enough, because the dark can help the pineal gland to produce pineal hormone, which is a hormone that guides people to sleep.
In addition, it is possible to create a conditioned reflex mechanism that is conducive to falling asleep.
Such as taking a hot bath half an hour before bedtime, soaking your feet, drinking a glass of milk, etc., as long as you persist for a long time, you will establish a “sleeping conditioned reflex”.
For patients with severe symptoms, they should go to a neurologist or sleep specialist clinic for help, and if necessary, take sleeping pills or medications for anxiety and depression under the guidance of a doctor.
In Chinese medicine, many insomnia are caused by liver problems such as insufficient liver qi or hyperactivity of liver yang. Therefore, conditioning the liver is particularly important for the treatment of insomnia.
There are a large number of Chinese medicines that have sedative and soothing effects, such as Schisandra chinensis, lily, longan, lotus seeds, jujube kernels, wheat, wolfberry, mulberry, ganoderma and American ginseng, etc. Single-flavored medicinal water can be used as tea.
These traditional Chinese medicine decoction pieces are available in pharmacies and are easy to make.
People who are inconvenient can also drink some health-enhancing liver tea. Its formula contains Gynostemma pentaphylla, Ganoderma lucidum, Chinese wolfberry and other ingredients to help nourish the heart, nourish the liver and soothe the nerves.
In addition, the health-preserving and healthy liver tea has a good taste and can be used as tea after brewing with boiling water, which has a long-term beneficial protective effect on the liver.
