Is your insomnia physical or mental?

People ask me all the time: is my insomnia caused by something mental or physical?

My answer: it’s usually both!

The initial trigger for insomnia could be mental or physical. Let’s say someone’s insomnia starts when someone close to them dies. That’s obviously a mental trigger.

But what if their insomnia is sudden? Or it has slowly gotten worse and worse with no apparent trigger? That means there’s a physical cause and it’s hidden because they don’t know where it came from. And it means that the body keeps getting more and more out of balance over time.

Even when the cause is physical, it easily becomes mental, right? If you’ve had trouble sleeping for any length of time, you know how it gets into your head. You become anxious at bedtime because you don’t know if you’ll sleep even though you’re exhausted. You tell everyone what a horrible sleeper you are. Being an insomniac becomes part of your identity.

To be able to sleep well again, you have to find the hidden physical cause. I find the physical cause by looking at different systems of the body with lab testing.

To sleep well again, you also have to address the mental part. Once we solve the physical part, if we don’t look at the psychological component, then it will be much harder to solve your sleeplessness long-term. That’s why I work with you to change your thoughts about sleep and to deal with the stress in your life.

This is the only solution in the world that looks at both the physical and mental causes of insomnia. If you’re ready to finally get over your insomnia forever, it starts with one conversation. I’ll tell you exactly why you can’t sleep, how we’re going to fix it and what it looks like to work together so can start sleeping better in less than a month! https://completesleepsolution.10to8.com
