Insomnia and Acupuncture
Insomnia in Chinese medicine is very interesting. It almost always is attributed to a heart problem. In our modern age, it has to do with either cardiomyopathies or coronary vascular disease such as arteriosclerosis, atherosclerosis and vasospasms. All three of these coronary artery problems restrict blood flow into the heart wall. When this happens a person simply cannot fall into a deep sleep. The drugs that are provided to make you fall asleep such as Ambien, Lunesta and Trazodone are just manipulating brain chemistry and do not address the fundamental cause of insomnia.
The real issue is almost always with the heart. Chinese medicine, whether it's acupuncture or Chinese herbs, can be used to vasodilate the coronary arteries, push more blood into the heart wall, and de-swell swollen atherosclerotic coronary vessels. The result is deep sleep every night and a noticeable improvement in fatigue and anxiety. Treating insomnia with Chinese medicine works very well and through Doane.us, we are going to teach you how to use the right acupuncture, and how to use the right combination of herbs to accomplish these results.
