Sleep Disorders or Insomnia Treatment in Ayurveda for Sleep disorders, Insomnia, Sleep Apnea
The usual recommendations are meditation, soft music or light dinner. But they often do not help you get your precious sleep. Have you experienced that? Finally you have to resort to pills. If you wish to move away from pills and also have good sleep, you need to look at fundamental solutions.
No short-term solutions will work. It’s because lack of sleep is due to serious imbalance in the natural body constitution and that needs correction. The rebalancing needs time and patience. When it comes to balancing, what better science than Ayurveda? Are you willing to look at a fundamental solution for getting back your ‘quality of life’? Then you should consider Ayurveda and Marmmayogi for the fundamental solution.
There are three main reasons why patients from 25+ countries swear by Marmmayogi. But before that we're sure you would like to know how Ayurveda can treat your sleep disorder and give you a higher 'quality of life'.
Ayurveda assessment of sleep disorders: As per Ayurveda there is a natural body constitution with which we are born. And as children we slept well. All our body systems work in harmony when our body constitution is balanced. Our metabolism works well and so is our capability to recuperate (of which sleep is very important). We are also able to bring our body back to balance as we recuperate after our daily chores. Over time we abuse our body so much due to stress, unhealthy food and lifestyle or lack of exercise, that the body is unable to regain the natural constitution on its own. This imbalance becomes more and more pronounced and leads to sleep disorders.
Why does the natural constitution get imbalanced? It is due to the toxin build-up as a result of bad food habits, lifestyle, stress, lack of exercise, genetics or hormonal imbalance. One of the major reasons for constitution imbalance is the improper flow of energy through the various energy channels. All this leads to improper metabolism and also produces weight gain. If the constitution was balanced, then the impact of the daily shocks would be far less because the body can stretch itself to take care of reasonable levels of abuse of the body. But if it is not in balance, then even small deviations can amplify sleep disorders. Haven’t you wondered as to why the meditation, soft music etc. don’t work? Its because they do not address the fundamental problem of the imbalanced constitution and metabolism.
Ayurveda treatment: The focus is to get the natural body constitution to emerge and to get the metabolic fires into balance. After which reasonable restrictions in food, lifestyle and moderate exercise should help you sleep better. Once the constitution is in balance, you will be able to regain your recuperative capability (sleep) even as you start to live a normal life (with reasonable restrictions).
At Marmmayogi the processes will start you on the journey by allowing your natural constitution to emerge. This has to be followed up by a reasonably healthy normal life. Stage one: Oil massages, warm oil (dhara) on head or curd dhara. These massages also shake up the built-up toxins in various cells and push them into the digestive tract. Yoga is also effective. Stage two: The toxins are then eliminated by purgation, sweating, vomiting or medicated enemas (depending on condition and constitution). Stage three: The weakened body tissues have to be strengthened using special massages, so that the newly balanced cosntitution is sustained. Pranayama is effective for elimination of toxins as well as rejuvenation. Stage four: One of the major reasons for constitution imbalance is the improper flow of energy through the various energy channels. Marma Ayurveda (practiced at Marmmayogi) which is a specialised branch of Ayurveda prescribes effective therapies for clearing energy channels. This accelerates the process of constitution re-balancing. (Know more about Marma Ayurveda and how it accelerates the healing process.)
Now the 3 reasons why patients from 25+ countries trust us.
Reason one: Marma Ayurveda
Like most Ayurveda hospitals we also do the the oil baths, massages and heat packs. What differentiates us is that, we also add-on a specialized branch of Kerala Ayurveda called Marma Ayurveda.
What is Marma Ayurveda? It is common knowledge that healing is much faster when the mind energy supports the treatment on the physical body. The mind-body is connected by energy channels which get blocked or weakened due to the disease. By cleaning and strengthening these channels through Marma Ayurveda, the mind energy flows freely towards the diseased parts. At Marmmayogi, Marma Ayurveda is done along with the Ayurveda treatments, making the massages and therapies far more effective. With Marma Yoga and Marma Meditation, the additional focus on mind-body channels is complete. All this makes the healing process faster. (KNOW MORE ABOUT MARMA AYURVEDA)
Reason two: Personalised attention and treatment
While the common Ayurveda treatments (massages and oil baths) are done by trained therapists, Marma therapy needs years of practice. The chief physician Dr. Manoj, who comes with a family tradition of 250 years, has been personally trained by his grandfather. Dr. Manoj has to do it personally on each patient. Since there is a limit to the number of patients Dr. Manoj can personally attend, we are a small hospital with limited number of rooms. With the doctor and his family staying on the premises, our patients are also pleasantly surprised with the family atmosphere and personalized attention.
Marma Therapy by the Doctor
While Traditional Kerala Ayurveda Therapy is done by Therapists, the Marma Therapy is done by Dr Manoj specific to the health issue.
Reason three: Special proprietary medicines
With a family tradition of 250 years, many highly effective medicines have been handed down over generations. These medicines are not available outside. Fresh herbs collected from the herbal garden are used very frequently in the treatments. All this makes the process far more effective.
