Vasudeva Ayurvedic Health Resort is one of the well-known ayurvedic centers in India that follows traditional ayurvedic methods for the treatment of insomnia.

Insomnia is a sleep disorder characterized by difficulty in initiating or maintaining sleep or both. It affects persons of all ages and the occurrence increases with age. Insomnia may be caused either due to physical conditions or because of psychological problems. Psychological problems include stress, anxiety, depression and the physical causes may be chronic pain, illness, or other health related problems .Ayurvedic physicians are of the opinion that the amount of sleep depends on the body type and your mind-body constitution. Sleeping cycles vary among people and throughout a person’s life. Moreover, while one person may only require four hour of sleep, others may need ten hours. Ayurveda is against the habit of sleeping during the day, especially during winter. In summer, however a short nap during the day is advisable.

Ayurvedic treatments include evaluating the imbalances in the normal functioning of the body and then recommend treatment to bring back the balance. This evaluation helps in diagnosing the fundamental cause of disorder in the individual, which is to be corrected. According to Ayurveda, there are two main causes for insomnia: Unbalanced Vata and the interruption in the routine of an individual. The signs of aggravated Vata include restlessness, anxiety and worry. Mental stress, increased body activity, fasting, staying up late all can create disturbance in the normal body system and thus bringing a total imbalance in Vata. When an individual goes out off his routine habits, he is susceptible to insomnia. Working late at night, traveling long distances without rest are examples.

One of the reasons that insomnia is on the rise is the high stress levels and time pressures associated with modern living. People complain of insomnia, with stress during the day making them too tense or worried to be able to fall asleep at night. Lack of sleep, in turn creates more stress on the job and at home.
