You don?t often find anyone use the term quantum mechanics when talking about insomnia. But Dr. Deepak Chopra, in his book ?Restful Sleep,? takes the approach that the key to curing insomnia is to gently return the body to its natural rhythms. He uses Ayurvedic terms and techniques, combined with practical measures to accomplish this. The book includes a wealth of ideas on how to soothe the senses into allowing you to sleep.
A chunk of the book is devoted to the Ayurvedic (Indian) approach to health and medicine. First one has to determine which of the three Ayurvedic types (doshas) one belongs to: Pitta, Vata or
Kapha. A questionnaire is included as an aid to categorizing yourself.
While many of the techniques that Dr. Chopra writes about will apply to anyone, some of the Ayurvedic techniques are adapted to the different types. For example, massage with sesame oil is specified for some, while coconut oil may work for others. Vital points may be massaged with oil before bedtime. Alternatively, one may massage the soles of the feet with oil.
Chapter Five begins with this: ?Overstimulating the five senses is a major cause of insomnia. On the other hand, when treated properly, the senses can be avenues to restful sleep.? Several tips for soothing the senses are given. One example is an herb pillow.
For this reason, he recommends that one eat a light supper relatively early, take a short walk after dinner, avoid intense effort or excitement in the evening, and refrain from watching TV in the evening or at least stop by 9 pm.
Many practical tips that are easy to incorporate into your schedule - try it.
