Naturopathy can be a wonderful tool for achieving a greater night’s sleep, whether as a singular issue you’d like to overcome, or as part of a larger treatment plan, with sleep deprivation as a symptom. There are a number of ways a naturopath can be an extremely helpful resource for sleep problems, such as a mild to severe lack of sleep, including insomnia.
Significant assessment times
Unlike some other resources you might engage with for lack of sleep, the CK Health naturopath service is not about quickly scribbling a script or assuming one pathway is the best for everyone. It’s not a fast fix process; instead, naturopaths want to help with a holistically focussed approach. This means, understanding your lifestyle and accompanying issues, if any, before making treatment recommendations. A bespoke focus gives you more confidence in a plan’s possible success, resulting in higher efficacy and sustainability.
Naturopath support is one that doesn’t come with a blueprint. We don’t look at any two patients identically, and a lot of what we do is investigate and troubleshoot creative, efficient and effective solutions to your ailments, including lack of sleep. Telling you to have herbal tea and apply some balm when you have chronic insomnia is not going to work for you, and the frustration could make your sleep issues worse. We’re working with you to find a solution that suits you, and will keep working with you until we do.
An alternative to medicated routes
A lot of patients seek out our naturopath service because they are either wanting to try a non-medicated route to treating sleep deprivation, or they’re frustrated with only being presented with this option when they’ve seen other healthcare providers. There is absolutely nothing wrong with taking medications to assist with sleep if it is done safely and it is something that works for you. But, it isn’t for everyone, and a good naturopath who is highly skilled will be able to walk you through effective alternatives that you can try with complete peace of mind.
Naturopathic treatments for sleep difficulties are looking at the long term. While the amount of sleep you may need for optimal health is individual, consistent effective sleep should be the priority goal. Something that may work in the short term, might lose effectiveness over time, or not be suitable as a long term solution for your lifestyle. So, we create a treatment plan that is designed to give you back a restful night’s sleep, for life.
