You may be waking during the night, or you may have difficulty initiating sleep. Insomnia can start after a stressful event or illness. Or, it may have come on slowly. Naturopathic medicine does not treat insomnia; rather it works with your body to support normal sleep. There are many herbs and nutrients that can support healthy sleep and relaxation, from melatonin to valerian root and passion flower. Just like medications, these herbs and nutrients can be helpful, but they don’t really address the cause of the insomnia. Dr. Lachman will look for the cause of your insomnia, and using homeopathy, will gently help your sleep improve. Over time, patients undergoing homeopathic care for insomnia see a gradual improvement in their concerns.
