Ayurveda views insomnia as an indication of nervous distress that stems out from vata emotions (nervousness, hypersensitivity, worry and anxiety). People with a history of irregular digestion, constipation, systematic dryness and irregular eating habits are more likely to suffer from insomnia. Ayurveda does not swear by the principle of eight hour night sleep. Instead the quantity and quality of sleep needed by person is considered to be crucial for health and for rejuvenating the mind, body and soul.
Sirodhana is a rejuvenating therapy that is specially designed to eliminate mental exhaustion and toxins. In this therapy oil is poured on patient’s forehead from specific distance and for specific time frame. Even though, oil is traditionally use for treatment of insomnia but other fluids like milk is also used. It brings relief to most of the associated factors of insomnia such as anxiety, stress and relaxes nervous system.
Ayurveda also suggests relaxing therapies such as meditation and yoga to cure insomnia.
