Insomnia - How Can I Deal With It? Presentation Transcript

  • 1. HOW CAN I DEAL WITH IT? Insomnia
  • 2. Most Popular Treatments for Insomnia
    • Coping with a sleeping disorder is a relentless cycle of restlessness.
    • Rather than concede to the frustration of insomnia, others experiment with a cornucopia of insomnia vitamins and therapies.
  • 3. Most Popular Treatments for Insomnia
    • From Ambien®, cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) to melatonin and other insomnia vitamins, research suggests that sufferers have a slew of effective and useless options at their disposal.
  • 4. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
    • Some psychiatrists recommend cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
    • Treatment entails employing techniques to:
      • Alter perceptions
      • Actions
      • Self-defeating thought
    • These techniques are used to help someone with the inability to sleep.
  • 5. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
    • Purpose of CBT:
      • Develop healthy habits to stimulate restful sleep patterns.
    • Recommended Number of Sessions:
      • Psychotherapists report that an average of 16-CBT sessions can help alleviate insomnia.
  • 6. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
    • What if I can’t afford 16-CBT sessions?
      • Due to the cost of each session and the time involved, there are some other options available:
  • 7. Prescription Drugs These are not recommended for those who suffer from depression or anxiety.
  • 8. Prescription Drugs
    • What are some popular alternatives to the prescription medications?
      • Insomnia Vitamins such as:
        • Kavinace
        • Melatonin
        • Valerian
  • 9. Melatonin
    • A hormone produced by the pineal gland, melatonin (an insomnia supplement) plays a vital function in managing the body’s sleep and conscious cycles.
    • This can be used for sleep support.
  • 10. Melatonin
    • A clinical trial (documented by MIT in 2005), suggested that higher doses of these insomnia vitamins are less effective within a few days of use.
    • When melatonin is a derivative of animal sources, there is a higher corrleation of contamination.
      • This is found to cause a viral infection or allergic reactions.
  • 11. Antihistamines
    • Commonly used to treat:
  • 12. Antihistamines
  • 13. Valerian
    • Known by aliases, such as garden heliotrope and tobacco root, valerian is used for a cross spectrum of reasons:
  • 14. Valerian
    • Both Valerian and Kavinace contain an active amino derivative, GABA (an inhibitory neurotransmitter for promoting relaxation).
  • 15. Valerian
    • For some valerian users, the jitteriness and rapid heartbeat are not the effects experienced from a restful night’s sleep.
  • 16. Kavinace
    • Among insomnia vitamins, Kavinace , nutraceutical product, works to replenish the body’s nutritional and amino acid requirements.
  • 17. Kavinace
    • Unlike valerian, antihistamines and melatonin, which have been shown to elevate arrhythmic conditions, preliminary research indicates that these adverse effects do not occur with Kavinace.
    • This is a pure remedy for sleep and relaxation.
