Sleep Disorders Q & A

What are sleep disorders?

Sleep disorders are a group of conditions, including:

  • Insomnia (difficulty falling and staying asleep)
  • Narcolepsy
  • Sleep apnea
  • Restless legs syndrome (RLS)

Of all the possible sleep disorders, insomnia is the most common. 

What causes sleep disorders?

Each sleep disorder has a different cause, whether a physical problem or personal and environmental issues.

Many people occasionally have insomnia because of lifestyle issues, like drinking caffeine, sleeping with the lights on, or enduring too much stress.

Chronic (long-lasting) insomnia usually has an underlying health problem, such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Chronic pain
  • Overactive thyroid
  • Restless legs syndrome
  • Mental health disorders

In addition to being a sleep disorder, sleep apnea is also a top cause of insomnia. 

Do sleep disorders affect my health?

Disrupted sleep causes daytime symptoms such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Poor attention
  • Memory loss
  • Irritability
  • Hyperactivity
  • Aggressiveness
  • Poor performance at school or work

 Sleep disorders also cause serious health problems. Your body does crucial maintenance while you sleep. To name two, your brain removes toxins and stores memories and your heart relaxes.

Routine maintenance is disrupted when you don’t sleep long enough or wake during the night. As a result, sleep disorders significantly increase your risk of developing high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, obesity, and Type 2 diabetes. 

How are sleep disorders treated? 

As a holistic practice, Zen Attitude Acupuncture provides treatments targeting the root cause of your sleep disorder. By comparison, conventional medicine offers potent medications with the potential for side effects.

 Your Zen Attitude Acupuncture provider may recommend acupuncture, homeopathic injections, or naturopathic medicine to heal the cause of your sleep disorder. These treatments deliver benefits like reducing inflammation, increasing blood flow, and restoring balance in your body. 

Your provider may also offer nutritional counseling or vitamin injections. Improving your nutritional state heals certain sleep disorders and supports every aspect of your health, from healing physical issues to reducing stress and improving mood.

Your sleep environment and the habits you follow before bedtime have a significant impact on your ability to sleep. Life coaching at Zen Attitude Acupuncture can help you make changes to treat insomnia.

Sleep is vital for your health and well-being, so don’t wait to seek help. Use online booking or call the nearest Zen Attitude Acupuncture office today.
