What We Treat

Schizandra Dreams of Sleep

 

 

Hi all!

Hope your Summer is going well!

The sun is shining, for the most part, the birds are singing, and nature is all a buzz with excitement.

For the natural world this is a time of activity, but for some, all this energy may be too much.

The energy of Summer can add fuel to any health issues like anxiety, heart problems, insomnia, or hot flashes.

Transitioning through the season smoothly can give us the warmth we need to carry us through the Autumn and Winter.

Using acupuncture and herbs can help us to just that. By lessening the severity of such conditions, we can strengthen ourselves and prevent worsening of the symptoms.This will help us stay healthier longer.

Many conditions go untreated or mistreated by improper use of medications, even over-the-counter ones and may just mask the underlying cause.

Acupuncture and herbal formulas encourage you to return to normalcy.

 

For this article I would like to talk about sleep.

 

We need to sleep. This is when our digestion can get down to the finite ingredients of our meals. We need to be still for this process from 1am to 3am.

If you are waking during these times this shows that your body is not processing the past days meals or events.

Modern life is a busy one, so much we need to do. If we get home and just drop, we are probably working over our limits.

For some this may provide us with deep sleep. For others, the thoughts and actions of our day mull over and over causing us unrest and loss of sleep.

We are happy to introduce you to a wide variety of formulas that can gently assist you back to a restful state so you can process the nutrients of the day and recharge your batteries for tomorrow.

One in particular is a formula entitles Schizandra Dreams.

All natural herbs with no pharmaceuticals to help you fall asleep and stay asleep.

This formula is on sale now for $14 here at Earth-Moon Acupuncture and Massage!

Its benefits include: treating insomnia and dreaming; may lessen the severity of sleep apnea, and for nighttime cough.

During the day it has a calming effect for daytime agitation, anxiety attacks, and palpitations or for substance withdrawal.

Sleep is the number one symptoms Americans seek medications for but most have side effects and are chemical compounds of unknown origin.

Using natural products are gentler and generally safer for long term use if needed.
Take care of sleep and take care yourself. And if you have any questions, come in and see us!
