Insomnia Information

Insomnia ranks high, right behind the common cold, stomach disorders, and headaches as a reason why people seek a doctor’s help. There are about one-third of adults complained that they woke up at midnight and couldn’t continue their sleep.

Chinese Medicine Explanation

No matter if you can not continue the sleep at midnight or can not fall asleep at the beginning, acupuncture and herbs are all very helpful to relieve the condition.

There is the theory of Yin-Yang in Chinese medicine. Yang is like the day time, sun, hot, fire, dry………. . Yin is like the night time, moon, cold, water, wet………. . If Yin and Yang are balanced in your body, you will feel comfortable, peaceful, and healthy. If Yin is too low (Yin deficiency), you will feel too much Yang (Heat) in your body, the heat will disrupt your sleep.

Having a good night’s sleep will increase Yin. On the contrary, insomnia will cause your Yin deficiency, so your condition will be getting worse and continue in this vicious circle.
