The-role-of-traditional-chinese-herbal-medicine-as-nature-s-insomnia-cure
By Don Saunders
The modern practice of traditional Chinese medicine brings together many hundereds of years of medical practice in China including the use of Chinese medicine as a natural insomnia cure. The term 'traditional Chinese medicine' is a reasonably modern term first used by the People's Republic of China during the 1950s when the country was attempting to build a substantial export trade for its time honored medicines and medical practices.

Nowadays, traditional Chinese medicine does not merely include medicinal products, but also includes such things as herbal preparations and several practices including and massage. The basis of traditional Chinese medicine is that the body functions as a consequence of numerous interrelated processes which are in constant interaction with the environment around us. Providing these processes stay in balance you are healthy. However, if these processes are not running alongside one another smoothly, then your health suffers.

There are many different philosophies which govern the practice of Chinese medicine including such things as the theory of Yin-Yang, the role of the five elements (water, earth, fire, wood and metal), the flow of energy along the meridians of the body and the interaction between the body's organs as laid down in the theory of Zang-Fu.

For many years there has been a great deal of conflict between those who follow traditional Chinese medical practices and people who believe in the science-based practice of western medicine. Nowadays however traditional Chinese medicine, together with other types of Oriental and Asian medicine, is increasingly gaining acceptance in the west and we now usually refer to such practices as alternative medicine.

For many millions of sufferers, herbal remedies have long

proved to be effective in curing insomnia, or for the relief of insomnia symptoms, and things like lavender, chamomile, lemon balm and passion flower have long been known for their medicinal properties. There surely cannot be many insomnia sufferers who have not tried a drink of hot honey combined with lemon balm before going to bed.

A growing number of people are also turning to or, for those who do not like the thought of needles, acupressure. Both of these arts have been in use for centuries and the principles arose out of the time-honored Chinese practice of adjusting the energy within the body by controlling its flow along the meridian lines.

In spite of its increasing acceptance there are still a substantial number of people who are wary of traditional Chinese medicine but anyone who has had experience of it in action, particularly those of us who have been lucky enough to spend time in the Far East, will most certainly vouch for its effectiveness.

If you suffer from insomnia then using traditional Chinese medicine for curing insomnia naturally is one route which you should consider seriously.
