Traditional Chinese Medicine and Sleep Disorder 

According to TCM, Insomnia or other sleep disorders might be caused by basic energy or Qi disturbance. Antidepressants can cause addiction, and sleeping medications are routinely recommended for sleep difficulties. The medicines become necessary for the patients to sleep. Acupuncture and herbal therapies are less invasive therapies in TCM. The prescribed medication is determined by the patient’s energy imbalance and inadequate distribution throughout the day. Common illnesses like mental stress, aches and pains, and digestive difficulties that might result from the improper distribution of food or exercise throughout the day and night can all disrupt sleep.
