Insomnia – So Seriously Dangerous.

What is Insomnia?

Insomnia is a common sleep disorder. People living with insomnia have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or both. Insomnia can either be acute (short-term) or chronic (long-term). Acute insomnia is common, affecting you because of situations such as family pressures, stress, or a trauma you have experienced. You sleep for more than 30% of your life, this show’s how vital it is.

The Danger Zone of No Sleep

You, on the other hand, can suffer from chronic insomnia which affects you for longer. Most cases of chronic insomnia are secondary, meaning they are either symptoms or side effects of some other problems you are experiencing. You can also suffer from secondary insomnia caused by certain conditions like medicine or sleep disorders. You sleeping enough is far more important than previously thought.

Insomnia and Ayurveda

In Ayurveda, Insomnia is called Anidra or Nidra Nasha, an imbalance in your Tarpaka Kapha, Sadhaka Pitta and Prana Vata. But your ultimate goal in the Ayurvedic approach to Anidra is for you to fabricate Ojas. Your Ojas are a substance produced from the most subtle level of proper digestion. Ojas give you energy, clarity of thinking, active immunity. You being happy, and contentment is another by-product of you producing Ojas. You fabricate Ojas only during the deepest and most restful sleep called the Stage Four sleep, proven research shows. Your sleep is hence very important.

No Sleep and its Side Effects

Chronic Insomnia is known to create defects in your memory, concentration, libido, balance, weight gain, blood pressure and immunity.  You also affect your central nervous system, immune system, respiratory system, digestive system, cardiovascular system and endocrine system.
