How insomnia wears us down
Naturally, our moods, cognitive and bodily functions, and physical performance will suffer without adequate sleep. Many areas of our lives are affected by insomnia such as aging, health, social relationships, cognitive functions and memory. This is probably why we as Registered Acupuncturists and Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners often see Insomnia as a chief complaint, as this can truly disturb an individual’s quality of life.
If the ability to do this is removed from your body, your body will move quicker into degeneration (meaning, you will age faster). Complications such as an increased risk in high blood pressure and heart disease, obesity, depression and anxiety, substance abuse, slow reaction time, irritability, and anxiety, and poor performance can grip everyday life. Luckily insomnia can be greatly improved by Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine.
