Insomnia is a symptom of a sleeping disorder characterised by persistent difficulty falling asleep and or staying asleep. Insomnia is typically followed by functional impairment while awake.
There are many possible causes of insomnia. It may be the result of anxiety where an individual feels increased tension or worry. This stress could be due to work, financial, emotional and numerous other causes.

Insomnia may also be a symptom of depression, especially characterised by early morning waking.

Physically, hormonal changes in women including premenstrual syndrome, menstruation, pregnancy and menopause may also cause problems with sleep.

Also decreased melatonin, the hormone that helps control sleep, may also be a factor.

Some other conditions that my also contribute to insomnia include allergies, arthritis, asthma, heart disease, high blood pressure, hyperthyroidism, and Parkinson’s disease.

At we we will look at identifying the root causes using nutritional analysis and bioresonance testing. When irritants to the system are removed such as allergies/intolerances and nutritional deficiencies corrected then the condition may improve.
