Sleeping difficulties can be treated. Insomnia can be affected by factors including: dietary choices, stress levels, anxiety, toxicities, thyroid imbalances, blood sugar instability, worry and menopausal changes. A thorough treatment plan would include: nutritional advise, treatment to address any of the above factors that are out of balance, as may also use homeopathy or acupuncture.
Psychotherapy can address both stress and anxiety that lead to sleeplessness. A long forgotten childhood experience or a more recent trauma may also be contributing. Gestalt therapy uses a somatic approach that works without the need for a specific memory or to recall details that maybe re-traumatizing and is an excellent way to explore your relationship with sleep. Gestalt dreamwork can be effective if you suffer from reoccurring dreams or nightmares.
