I have an adult patient who has been suffering from Insomnia for many years. He tried all kind of medications with no benefits. I assume that his insomnia is mainly due to work and personal stress. I was wondering if he could take Shankhpushi for few months to overcome this problem or is there any other recommendation? Kindly advise on this and I would really appreciate your thoughts on this...
Please try to find out causative factors other that stress and work like food and natural urges habits.. if no other factor is there then shankpushpi, ashawagandha, jatamansi any of these medicine will work well.
Human body is programmed to sleep effortlessly and that system is robust. It seems to be quality of sleep problem.As long as the root cause is not discovered,accepted by the patient ,faced to resolve ,normal sleep will never happen in restless stressed mind,no matter what is given. It is a "do it to self " job but can get lot of benefit by seeing a counselor and discussing personal challenges and sources of stress.
