Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Insomnia is a disorder of sleeplessness. There are several causes that cause this condition like stress, anxiety, disturbed lifestyle, disturbed sleeping routine or other medical conditions.

It can be managed naturally through ayurvedic medicines and procedures. Panchakarma therapy is one of the best options.

There is another method called Shirodhara. You can take oral medications and meditation.

Treatment includes:

  1. Brahmi ghrita one spoon in the morning in empty stomach.
  2. Manasamitra Vati one tablet twice a day after meals.
  3. Jatamansi Churna one tablet twice a day after meals.
  4. Saraswataristam 15 ml twice a day with the equal amount of water after meals.

Along with medications, you should try to resolve your disturbed schedule, stress and anxiety. Avoid spicy and fried junk foods. Avoid smoking and drinking, if you have these habits. Do regular yoga like suryanamaskara and pranayamas. Do meditation in daily routine.
