Insomnia Can Be Helped By NeuroCranial Restructuring

Insomnia is a condition that is difficult to treat. The causes of it are many, and a good family practitioner has many conditions to rule out. Hormonal problems, allergies, heavy metal poisoning, mineral imbalances, stress and poor home environment are some of the causes of insomnia.

A leading cause of insomnia can be stress, which is often considered to be a psychological condition but is very mechanical as well, regardless of its causation. Once present, stress can be relieved very effectively with NeuroCranial Restructuring.

Often times the stress can be relieved long-term by the NeuroCranial Restructuring. (See anxiety)

Treatment of insomnia is generally biochemical. Sometimes changing nervous system balance with the mineral magnesium or pantothenic acid (vitamin B-5) can be effective. The use of tranquilizers and sleeping pills is usually of symptomatic help, and botanicals such as valerian, skullcap and hops are just a little better. Melatonin, a pineal hormone, tryptophan (now a prescription item) and 5-HTP (a tryptophan precursor) can be symptomatically corrective too.

The use of serine phosphatide salts or the more expensive phosphatidyl serine can be effective because of their damping of adrenal cortisol production. Occasionally, the use of cortisol analogs, like licorice root concentrates, improves cortisol levels, alleviating the need for continued adrenal stimulation to manufacture cortisol and thus allowing the nervous system to rest.

NeuroCranial Restructuring can help to balance the body’s hormonal patterns by optimizing nervous system function. Thus adrenal problems like high cortisol levels (a cause of insomnia) can be corrected. Similarly, low estrogen levels, which can lead to insomnia and hot flashes, can sometimes be treated with NeuroCranial Restructuring.
