What is insomnia and how it is manifests itself

Insomnia is a very common sleep disorder which indicates the inability to sleep even when it feels the need: this is a complex problem that does not only affect the night, but affects the whole day.

Usually, sufferers of insomnia have one or more of the following symptoms: difficulty falling asleep, frequent night-time awakening, early morning awakening, and poor quality of sleep, which is perceived to be unfit. Those suffering from insomnia often also have diurnal symptoms such as fatigue, memory disorders, depression, anxiety and persistent drowsiness.

There are three types of insomnia depending on the duration: episodic insomnia and transient insomnia last for a few days to a maximum of three weeks and are usually related to stressful events or specific pathologies. Chronic insomnia, on the other hand, can last for years and requires a thorough medical assessment.

How to cure insomnia: therapies and solutions

 The first step to curing insomnia is to understand what its triggering motive is and to undertake a specific care path with the help of a specialist. The neurologist may require some diagnostic examinations to have a complete picture of the situation from a physiological point of view, and if you are targeting a specialized sleep disturbance therapist, the psychological causes that are often the basis of insomnia will be investigated.

Common therapies, in addition to pharmacologic insomnia, include the use of hypnosis, the teaching of special relaxation techniques and the use of natural remedies and homeopathic preparations.
