Sleep is important for our health. Insomnia can affect you both mentally and physically and is a disorder that make it hard to fall asleep or to stay asleep. Many people have long-term (chronic) insomnia. Sleeplessness can sap not only your energy level and mood but also your health and quality of life. Women are much more likely to experience insomnia. Hormonal shifts during the menstrual cycle and in menopause play a role. During menopause, night sweats and hot flashes often disturb sleep.
The complications of insomnia are lower performance on the job, slowed reaction time while driving and higher risk of accidents, mental problems, overweight and obesity, poor immune system function, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes.
In the homeopathic and biochemical treatment (Schuessler salts) of insomnia, detoxification therapies serve the activation of metabolism, the immune system and strengthening the body's nerves, circulation and connective tissue. It cleans, de-acidifies the body, is mineralizing and leads to a balanced life energy. The body will be purified and the dissolved metabolic waste, acids and toxins are excreted through the intestines, urinary tract, lungs and skin.
Sleeplessness can be caused and reinforced by a mineral deficiency and an acidification of the body. Mineral deficiency and acidification in turn weaken the hormonal system, connective tissue and immune system. Also a defective metabolism favors insomnia, acidification and chronic health problems and is often the result of a disturbance of mineral intake and mineral distribution. Although we may receive enough minerals in our food, in the event of a metabolic disorder, not all of the minerals may reach the cells. The use of homeopathic remedies and Schuessler salts is a good way to compensate this mineral deficiency in a natural way and to treat sleeplessness.
Stress, acidification of the body, as well as environmental toxins hinder the mineral transport through the cell membranes. This is where the effect of Homeopathy and Schuessler salts works. They activate the excretion of toxins and acids. The basal metabolic rate increases and the self-healing power of the body is activated.
First I like to explain you the therapies for the treatment and prevention of insomnia offered in this guide:
Homeopathy was developed about 200 years ago by Samuel Hahnemann. The three basic principles of Homeopathy are the simile rule, homeopathic drug testing and detection of individual disease. The most important principle is the principle of Similarity (simile rule), which was formulated in 1796 by Hahnemann.
It states that a patient should be treated with the remedy, which can cause in its original state similar symptoms in healthy people like the existing disease. It notes primarily the main complaints of the patient. Together with a few differentiating additional informations (modalities) then the right remedy will be found for the treatment of sleeplessness. The dosage depends on the condition of the patient. As the patient improves, the distances between the medication will be gradually extended.
What happens if you choose the wrong remedy? Nothing. Just as a key does not turn in the wrong door lock, a wrong homeopathic remedy does not cause any reaction in the body.
The homeopathic remedies are available as D-, C- and LM potencies. For the beginners in Homeopathy, I recommend the use of lower D-potencies. Higher potencies (D200, C and LM potencies) should only be given by an expert, as they go very deep in their effects and are often used only once.
Schuessler salts (also named homeopathic cell salts, tissue salts, Biochemistry) for the treatment and prevention of insomnia
In the 19th century the german physician Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Schuessler (1821 to 1898) developed his health cure with homeopathic mineral salts. In recent years this therapy celebrated a comeback. In his studies Schuessler discovered twelve mineral compounds, comprised each of a base and an acid, which play a crucial role in the function and structure of the body. He developed his own system with which many diseases can be treated in a natural way (also sleeplessness).
Schuessler focused his search on mineral salts and trace elements, which are found in every cell of the body and called his method of healing "Biochemistry" (chemistry of life). It is based on the assumption that nearly every disease is caused because of the lack of a specific mineral salt. This leads to dysregulations inside the cells. The molecules cannot flow freely.
A mineral salt deficiency arises from the fact that the cells cannot optimally use the minerals. To improve their absorption, mineral salts therefore have to be highly diluted (potentized). Schuessler used the homeopathic potencies D3 (3x), D6 (6x) and D12 (12x) for his therapy. In general, the D6 (dilution 1:1 million) or D12 (1:1 trillion) is taken.
Acupressure for the selftreatment and prevention of sleeplessness
Acupressure und Acupuncture come from the Far East. Because of their great success they are now becoming very popular with us. During the acupuncture treatment needles are pierced into specific points. During the acupressure treatment these points are pressed, massaged or rapped. Both treatment methods have the advantage that they do not have any side effects when used correctly.
About 400 acupuncture points are used constantly, but much more are known. They lie on the 12 main meridians and the special meridians, which must be imagined as the energy pathways of the body. As long as the energy is distributed evenly throughout the energy channels, the person is healthy. When the energy flow is disrupted, the person is sick. By treating certain points, the energy between the meridians will be balanced and the patient gets enough power to become healthy.
In this naturopathic adviser, I will give you recommendations how to treat and prevent insomnia with Homeopathy, herbal tinctures, Schuessler salts and Acupressure. I will present you the most proven homeopathic remedies and Schuessler salts, including the appropriate potency and dosage. Naturopathy works holistically and treats the whole body, spirit and soul. I wish you much success, joy of life and especially your health.

Older men often develop enlargement of the prostate gland, which can cause the need to urinate frequently in the night.
Sleep apnea and restless legs syndrome
Women are much more likely to experience insomnia. Hormonal shifts during the menstrual cycle and in menopause play a role. During menopause, night sweats and hot flashes often disturb sleep.
Jet lag from traveling across multiple time zones can also cause insomnia.
Complications of insomnia:
Lower performance on the job or at school
Slowed reaction time while driving and higher risk of accidents
Psychiatric problems, such as depression or an anxiety disorder
Overweight and obesity
Poor immune system function
Increased risk and severity of long-term diseases, such as high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes
In addition to your homeopathic and biochemical treatment of insomnia, you may make a de-acidification health cure of your body with the following recipe:
320 grams of Sodium bicarbonate (Natrium hydrogenkarbonat)
50 grams of Potassium hydrogen carbonate (Kalium hydrogencarbonat)
70 grams of Calcium citrate (Calciumcitrat)
40 grams of Calcium phosphate (Calciumphosphat)
20 grams of Magnesium citrate (Magnesiumcitrat)
Dissolve 1 teaspoon in 250 ml of lukewarm water daily at 10 and 16 clock and drink in small sips.
During the day time, in addition to your homeopathic and biochemical treatment, drink 3 cups of tea for the kidneys. In the evening drink one cup of tea for the liver. This will clean the blood and connective tissue and the toxins and metabolic waste products will be extracted quickly.
