The sleep. A health issue discussed and presented again and again.
How many times doctors and health experts have emphasized its importance on a smooth and correct functioning of our organism.
It’s been around for years. This is not the problem. There is always a feed about sleep.
The problem is somewhere else. Where?
Among all of us. Have we ever heard any of this information? Have we considered any of these recommendations and advice seriously? I would say no.
We think that sleep is something of minor importance and all of us we think in the same way.
Ok. When I got some time free, I’ll take a nap to supplement the sleep hours required.
This is not the right think to do. Sleep is as important as the food and water.
It can heal adverse conditions or it can create lots of problems in case it is not as appropriate as it should be.
I hope this article will provide some help on the right direction and make most of us to see this important matter with the attention it deserves.
Here there is another point we’ll have to discuss.
It’s not always the duration of sleep, but also its quality.
A number of factors affect the quality of sleep in a negative or positive way, like many small habits of daily life being responsible for sleep’s poor quality, or the fatigue you feel when you wake up and is a possible cause for getting sick easily.
I think we need some information to change our attitude towards such an important health issue, always neglected by everyone.
Sleep is a normal process of the body, extremely important not only for its physical health, but also for his mental and spiritual health as well.
How many times we feel upset, nervous, irritated, and being in trouble trying to complete a work requiring mind concentration and finally this proved impossible just for not having slept well?
Since ancient times, people have understood the importance of good quality sleep. Indeed, in ancient Greece, people believed that sleep was an opportunity for mortals to communicate with the gods.
Causes of poor sleep quality may vary and sometimes relate not only to simple habits incorrectly adopted in our daily lives, but to serious health problems, chronic illnesses or even mental disorders, as well.
Certainly yes. When the sleep problem has no origin in pathological causes – that is, it is not due to any condition we suffer from – then we can identify the causes of bad sleep and resolve them, meaning changing our habits and identifying what works best for our body.
Sleep is not only important for “resting” the body and “recharging its batteries”, but also for “getting rid” of all the junk information received during the day.
So, the nervous system strengthens and maintains its healthy function, while in any other case organisms would lead to a kind of “overloading” leading to unpleasant consequences at many levels.
Insomnia is the condition where a person feels powerless after sleep, due to both the duration and quality of sleep that preceded it.
Insomnia as a condition is an extremely complex and special situation requiring attention to its understanding.
Medical evidence identifies insomnia as the difficulty in getting into or even staying asleep. Many people say that while they sleep relatively easily, they wake up just as easily and find it difficult to get back to sleep.
People who are truly suffering insomnia – that is, constantly having trouble sleeping – usually have one or more of the following symptoms:
Another point that most people are unaware of is that, there are categories of insomnia according to its duration.
Therefore, we have the acute insomnia (its duration is relatively short) or chronic insomnia (in the case of frequent insomnia during the week and for long periods).
Acute insomnia is a condition of transient nature, usually due to the causes provoked by our life circumstances, such as, bad news, anxiety about a presentation, uncertainty about a medical exam and generally stressful factors leading to a disruption of sleep quality.
Chronic insomnia certainly is the most dangerous and worrying form of insomnia, for presenting serious consequences on the functioning of organism.
During chronic insomnia, people tend to get used to short duration and poor quality of sleep quality, a fact eventually resulting in a lifestyle.
It is important that a person as becomes aware of repetitive sleep problems should look for the causes and try to manage and resolve them.
It is always advisable prior to arriving in such extreme situations, to act before we have to get to that point to tackle the problem, and deal with it.
It should not be hanging over the time. The sooner the problem is resolved, the easier it will be!
However, even for doctors is sometimes difficult to determine what is the cause and what the effect is … The doctor usually studies the patient’s condition and sets some tests before deciding on the best and most effective treatment plan for the particular problem.
As already mentioned, many pathological conditions / medical conditions could cause the problem of insomnia.
Some of them are mild diseases so no worries exist, while others are more serious and dangerous.
In some of the following cases, insomnia is the result of the disease itself, while in other cases comes as the indirect result of an embarrassing condition, discomfort or pain ultimately causing problems in the duration and quality of sleep.
A number of conditions associated with the insomnia problem and cause a disorder may be:
Furthermore, insomnia may be a consequence of medication received.
Here are some of the drugs causing insomnia:
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder where a person has difficulty breathing during sleep.
In fact, there is a block in the airway leading the person to short breathing stops and less oxygen intake.
Sleep apnea may cause insomnia as disrupts the flow of sleep by preventing the person’s smooth breathing.
However, they are not clearly associated with each other. A person who has sleep apnea does not necessarily have insomnia and vice versa, a person with insomnia does not necessarily present sleep apnea.
This will help to cope with not only insomnia but also the source of the problem, which might be any disease causing it.
A simple table below is showing the times according to which weak up and sleeping times are arranged for a complete sleep of 7.5 hours or 9 hours respectively.
