How acupuncture has helped Toyah finally get a good night...

For the latest research on acupuncture as a treatment for insomnia, see my blog post of 2/25/13. Overall, studies of acupuncture for insomnia have produced mixed results. But two new studies, one from Brazil and the other from Taiwan, showed that acupuncture improved subjects' sleep quality. The Brazilian subjects reported feeling better during the daytime as well. www.thesavvyinsomn  (Feb 28, 2013 | post #2)


Insomnia: relaxa and stop worrying about lack of sleep

Hello Justsayin, Have you tried cognitive-behavior al therapy (CBT) for insomnia? My insomnia has been episodic practically all my life, but undergoing CBT 5 years ago helped me become more resilient to stress-related sleep problems. My bouts of insomnia are less frequent, and they don't last as long when they occur. It's worth checking out if you can. www.thesavvyinsomn  (Jan 31, 2013 | post #5)


Keep waking up early and cannot get back to sleep

Two comments here. When I wake up earlier than I'd like, I always find it's better to get up and start my day rather than lying in bed and trying (futilely!) to sleep. During the day I may be a little more fatigued than normal, but the following night I usually sleep better and longer. The other thought I have is to experiment with the timing of your sleep. If you normally go to sleep at 11, try staying up till midnight and see if the added pressure to sleep actually keeps you sleeping longer in the morning. www.thesavvyinsomn  (Jan 28, 2013 | post #168)
