Kalms Night Tablets are a traditional herbal remedy, which are used for the temporary relief of sleep disturbances.
Understanding Insomnia/Sleeplessness: What is insomnia/sleeplessness?
If the sleeplessness lasts for only a few nights it is described as transient. This type of insomnia is often caused by external factors such as a stressful lifestyle or noise. On these occasions a herbal sedative, such as Kalms Sleep, may help to restore the body's natural sleeping patterns.
Long-term insomnia that occurs every night and lasts a month or more is described as chronic. The causes of this can be more complicated and it is advisable to see your G.P. for diagnosis and treatment.
What are the causes?
Causes can vary with the individual but some common ones include:
What are the effects?
Not getting enough sleep can affect different people in different ways and depends very much on your daily routine. It can make you irritable, worried or nervous, unable to concentrate or cope with even the simplest of tasks. You may find yourself feeling drowsy during the day, becoming forgetful or more accident prone than usual. Often people who are suffering from insomnia may feel short tempered and more likely to become impatient with others.
Anxiety about falling asleep itself can even be a problem as, the more you worry, the less likely you are to be able to sleep properly.
Physically, a lack of sleep can severely impair our ability to complete everyday tasks: driving while tired is responsible for thousands of accidents every year. Fatigue also lowers the immune system and makes your risk of illness much higher.
Dealing with sleeplessness:
It is vital to understand why you're not sleeping because then you can come up with a solution. Often insomnia is a symptom of an underlying problem rather than a cause - so dealing with the problem may well help - more than you might think.
Talk about your worries or write them down before you go to bed. Maybe you need to cut out caffeine before bedtime, or have a word with your noisy neighbour? Perhaps you need to get into a routine or get rid of a few pillows? Give yourself the best chance of sleeping soundly.
