Restless legs syndrome (RLS), another sleep disorder that ranks as one of most frequently diagnosed, affects more than twelve million people in US alone each year. Unlike other common sleep disorders, restless legs syndrome combines physical symptoms of a sleep disorder like insomnia with neural symptoms such as periodically uncontrolled limb movement and a tingling sensation in legs and feet.
While a serious sleep disorder such as obstructive sleep apnea, chronic narcolepsy or restless legs syndrome requires intervention of a medical professional, there are still various ways in which you can actively manage your sleep disorder. In fact, numerous natural sleep remedies can help you get a better night's sleep and effectively deal with your sleep disorder, without resorting to sleeping pills or artificial sleep enhancers.
These sleep remedies are too numerous to discuss them in any detail in this short article, but they include melatonin and valerian root, two natural alternatives to sleeping pills, as well as aromatherapy, color or chromatherapy and guided relaxation and meditation. Chamomile or lavender teas and infusions are also an excellent natural remedy for managing various sleep disorders.
While some persistent sleep disorders do certainly merit investigation by your doctor, chronic insomnia can, more often than not, be cured without need for medical intervention. Understanding underlying causes of your insomnia and then making a number of simple changes to your lifestyle or routine can make a dramatic difference to quality of your sleep. With added help of one or two natural sleep remedies, you can then soon say farewell to this particular sleep disorder.
