AYURVEDA FOR INSOMNIA
The life that the modern age people chose has its own advantages and disadvantages. Advantages, as in, technology, longevity, medication, and time-efficient life modules are few benefits we can take pride in but as the say goes on, “To win something, you need to first lose something” the technical world has adversely affected human health, deteriorating their mental health and peace. People are frustrated, suffering from anxiety issues, diabetes, depression, and at the end falls prey to insomnia.
Insomnia in Ayurveda
We often casually put ourselves in an insomniac category if struggling with sleeplessness for a night or two. But in reality, insomnia is a lot more serious threat to a person’s well-being and overall growth. Sleeplessness in every 3-4 days a week, awakening at 2 am, body pain, gastrointestinal issues, and depression are some of the symptoms of insomnia.
In Ayurveda, Insomnia is rooted to one of the three Doshas namely, Vatta (Air/wind), Pitta (Fire), and Kapha. Where Kapha symbolizes a person’s stability, lubrication, fluid balance, and find its way out through urine, Vatta and Pitta are the key factors responsible for causing sleeplessness in a person. It controls the soul, body, and a person’s ability to think and respond to any action.
Sleeplessness affects a person’s overall health. In some cases, any personal worry or fear may cause insomnia yet many people these days fall prey to it due to their lifestyle.
Some of the habits one can add to their daily to-do-list to eliminate Insomnia are
1) Implement early to bed and early to rise habit
There were rooted secrets behind what our ancestors taught us about the sleeping routine. Try getting into bed around 10 PM. In Ayurveda, 10 PM to 5 AM is the time period in which our brain stabilizes the organs, energizing the nerves and cells of the body. Staying awake at this time disrupts body metabolism and affects your sleep.
2) Eat a decent meal prior to bed
Add soups or salads to your dining plate. The less you eat before getting off to bed the more your brain would focus on supplying energy to other organs. Also, a light meal deflates the digestive process and eases the digestive organs. Thus, you fall asleep without any disturbance.
