Why Natural Remedies Are Better Than Lunesta
January 21, 2017
As many as 40% of Americans deal with insomnia, and most of those people use pharmaceuticals like Lunesta or Ambien to help them deal with it. Here are some natural tips to help deal with your insomnia, and get back on the sleep track.
"You're not healthy unless your sleep is healthy," - Dr. William Dement, father of sleep medicine "A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book." - Old Irish proverb I don't know too many doctors who have "sleep books" that include much else beyond Ambien, Lunesta, Rozerem, Sonata, Halcion, Restoril and Desyrel, the common drugs used to treat insomnia. Side effects like drowsiness the following day, confusion, inattentiveness, and drug tolerance and dependence are enough to push you through the withdrawal symptoms and not look back. Did I mention drug interactions, rebound insomnia and the possibility that these medications may mask underlying problems?
