London, UK (PRWEB UK) 1 September 2013
On the 6th of August, a Michigan panel rejected adding insomnia to the list of illnesses qualifying for medical marijuana use in the state. The Michigan Medical Marijuana Review Panel also rejected adding autism and asthma to the list, but did give the preliminary go-ahead to add post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This would be the first addition since medical marijuana was approved by voters in 2008, but the head of the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs will have final say on whether to add PTSD to the list of debilitating conditions.

With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine explored the different ways to cure insomnia. According to Yourwellness Magazine, “The value of the sleep we get affects every other part of our life. The Ancient Greeks were aware of this, and had a deity especially for this purpose! Morpheus was the governor of sleep who watched over their dreams and quality of rest. Sleep is the meeting point of mind, body and soul; the time when all healing and growth takes place. It’s also the time for processing all the experience of waking life. People who suffer from insomnia suffer a major handicap. Without the essential rest and processing time, how can you face the day ahead?...a lack of sleep can have a terrible impact on your wellbeing.” (http://www.yourwellness.com/2013/01/how-to-cure-insomnia/#sthash.feGidYKU.dpuf)
Yourwellness Magazine outlined different ways to cure insomnia:
1. Tranquilisers. These will be prescribed by a doctor but are unlikely to break the cycle, and should be reserved for ‘sleep emergencies’ only.
2. Diet. Eating late at night is a major cause of insomnia, do don’t eat after 7pm as digestion will be sluggish after this time. Yoga practitioners insist that the last meal of the day should be eaten before sunset. Eat a small nutritious and easily digestible meal long before bedtime, as the body should not take up valuable energy in digesting.
3. Avoid stimulants. Avoid stimulating food and especially caffeine. Some people are particularly sensitive to caffeine and might still experience the effects many hours later.
4. Complementary therapies. Traditional Chinese Medicine combines acupuncture and ongoing herbal supplements which put the whole system in order. Yoga and meditation promote relaxation.
