What is Insomnia?

Insomnia or sleeplessness, which is called "anidra" in Ayurveda, is a poor health condition that deprives the patient of his natural rest, resulting in annoyance and interference with his/her routine activity during the day. When it becomes common, it may pose really serious risk or menace to the person's health.

What Causes Insomnia: 


Insomnia might occur because of various causes that keep the person awake altogether, resulting in sleeplessness or in disturbing dreams and un-refreshing slumber. In temporary cases of sleeplessness or dreaming in which the patient often complaints that he or she often suffers from uneasy, disturbed nights.

The cause is typically sought in some external source of irritation. Pain in some part of the body, such as toothache; uncomfortable surroundings, such as inadequate covering in harsh winter night or lack of a fan, cooler or AC in a hot, summer night; an overloaded stomach resulting in or causing uneasiness; or a niggling concern or some kind of worry or anxiety may also prevent the brain from achieving or attaining the required degree of relaxation that is essential to get a sound sleep. 

Many other factors like extreme worry, overwork, limitation of the hours of sleep, and constant grief may lead to a habitual lack of sleep. Presence of poisonous substances in the blood, as in the case of an infection, neurasthenia, or nervous weakness also causes sleeplessness or insomnia.
