A Drug-Free Approach to Insomnia

Written By Dr. Erwin Gemmer on December 27, 2019

A drug free approach to treating insomnia Up to 40% of adults in the U.S. experience some symptoms of insomnia several times a year. Worse still, up to 15% of the total population struggle with chronic insomnia. 

Insomnia is the inability to fall and/or remain asleep, leaving you feeling fatigued and not refreshed. It also leads to daytime sleepiness, moodiness, anxiety, irritability, and generally feeling unwell – both physically and mentally. 

Why Medications Should Not Be Your Go-To Insomnia Treatment 

Unfortunately, some sleep medication may worsen your insomnia symptoms. They may disrupt your normal sleep cycles which causes less restorative sleep. Being sedated the whole night doesn’t necessarily equate to a deep and restful sleep. 

The most common sleep drugs also have the inconvenient side effect of causing people to sleepwalk and do odd, unknown things!

To make matters worse, some people become dependent on sleep meds to the point that they can’t sleep without taking them. One of the most common withdrawal signs is rebound insomnia – worsened insomnia symptoms than before the medication. 

For these reasons, it’s always recommended to try drug-free insomnia treatments first. 

Drug-Free Insomnia Treatment in Bremerton

To understand the Gemmer Wellness “Get Some Sleep” program, you first need to know that there are numerous potential causes of your insomnia. Common causes include hormonal imbalances, muscle or joint pain, toxins, emotional overload as well as direct neurological issues. 

Sleep is a complex process that requires the coordinated effort of several systems including the brain, and other nervous structures, heart circulation, the entire hormonal system and all organs involved in detoxification. When any of these systems malfunction,  it may be caused by an imbalance in your autonomic nervous system. When this occurs, the brain can’t properly control all the functions and systems. This may lead to insomnia.

The Gemmer Wellness “Get Some Sleep” corrects these imbalances by rebooting the nervous system’s control of the body, thereby helping your insomnia.
