Event description

Description

Insomnia, also known as sleeplessness, is a sleep disorder where people have trouble sleeping.[1] They may have difficulty falling asleep, or staying asleep as long as desired. Insomnia is typically followed by daytime sleepiness, low energy, irritability, and a depressed mood. From the Chinese medicine perspective insomnia can be attributed to disharmony of the five zang organs and corresponding treatment is to regulate and harmonize the five zang organs (heart, liver, spleen, lung and kidney). Insomnia can occur independently or as a result of another problems. Conditions that result in insomnia include psychological stress, chronic pain, heart failure, hyperthyroidism, heartburn, restless leg syndrome, menopause etc.

Depression is a state of low mood and aversion to activity that can affect a person's thoughts, behavior, feelings, and sense of well-being. A depressed mood is a normal temporary reaction to life events such as loss of a loved one. It is also a symptom of some physical diseases and a side effect of some drugs and medical treatments.

Both depression and insomnia are correlated as one may lead to the others ie depression or anxiety can cause insomnia and conversely chronic insomnia may lead to depression. Both these two disorders are well documented in the ancient Chinese medical texts and associated treatment strategies are recommended to address these prevalent disorders dating back to thousands of years ago.
