Holistic Healing for Sleep Disorders

Sleep disorders like insomnia, snoring, sleep apnea, and restless leg syndrome can disrupt your body’s natural rhythms and cause exhaustion, frustration, reduced work performance, and relationship issues. However, treatment can be a long and complicated process.

As naturopaths, we believe that symptoms produced by the body are messages about what your system needs to thrive. Sleep disorders often indicate an imbalance, which we can help to correct through various holistic methods.

Naturopathic medicine provides many non-invasive treatments that help to reduce the effects of sleep disorders on your body and mind. Our experts at Water’s Edge Natural Medicine do our very best to personalize the right treatment for you. We listen to your symptoms, discuss your medical history and concerns with you, and then and only then, speak with you about the following treatment options:

Herbal Treatments

Our naturopaths are highly-trained and experienced in the use of herbal supplementation to treat sleep-related disorders. Several herbs, as well as herbal combinations, have been found to be safe and effective at encouraging sleep in those with issues either falling or staying in a state of rest. The naturopaths at Water’s Edge Natural Medicine will consider your current state of health, past treatments, and presenting symptoms when prescribing herbal formulas for your use. Follow up appointments will be scheduled to ensure that the remedy is working, and to make changes to the treatment plan if necessary.

Acupuncture

Clinical trials involving this ancient Chinese healing modality as a treatment for insomnia have proven beneficial. Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needles at specific locations on the body, to stimulate and tonify patients’ organs and organ systems. In some cases, heat may be used to supplement treatments in the form of burning herbs or with small electrical stimuli. Acupuncture will not interfere with any medications you may be taking and provides a relaxing experience.

Nutrition

You are what you eat, and at Water’s Edge Natural Medicine, we firmly believe that a specifically-tailored nutritional plan is one of the most essential elements in rebuilding your health and wellbeing. Our naturopaths will assess your current diet and presenting symptoms to look for hidden caffeine, sugar, and any nutrients that may be interfering with your sleep. Next, we will determine, based on your tastes and nutritional needs according to age and current state of health, dietary additions that could help to encourage nightly rest. By making sure your body obtains what it needs to thrive, our team can help to reduce symptoms, including sleep disorders, that indicate need in your body.
