There are many reasons for and causes of insomnia, both psychological and physical. It can be a very debilitating condition, leaving you tired all the time and making work and everyday life difficult to cope with. There is no lonelier experience than being awake in the middle of the night, when everyone around you is sound asleep. Some common causes include.
- Shift work
- High consumption of caffeine, tea coffee, cola and chocolate
- Excess use of salt
- Nutrient deficiencies
- Food allergy
- Heavy metal poisoning
- Plus a whole host of emotional issues such as a new job, a bad relationship, divorce and moving house etc.
Obviously it is important to resolve any emotional issues that may be contributing towards your insomnia, possibly by working them through in counseling or with a psychotherapist. However, poor diet and nutrient deficiencies are often at the route of the problem. So by improving your diet and general nutrition with the help of a nutritionist, you can look forward to a good night’s rest and in the morning wake refreshed, ready to tackle what ever the day may bring.
