Stress and sleeping disorders
While stress and insomnia are not considered as diseases in modern medicine, both can affect negatively your health and quality of life. There are several ways to reduce stress level within the body. The doctors recommend to exercise because sport reduces the level of stress hormone called cortisol and releases endorphins, natural hormones of happiness. Spending time with your friends, family and children increases the production of neuropeptide called oxytocin, a natural stress reliever. Reducing caffeine, a healthy diet and keeping a journal of troubling thoughts and worries also can help to fight with the stress.
Japanese doctors often prescribe natural remedies consist of herbs and having an anti-stress effect. Doriel Anti-Stress reduces nervousness and normalizes the work of the central nervous system. Yokukansan includes such ingredients as Atractylodis lanceae rhizoma, Cnidii rhizoma, Angelicae radix, Bupleuri radix, Glycyrrhizae radix, Uncariae and Perenniporia fungus. It reduces irritability, improves general mood and even helps to prevent Alzheimer's disease and senile dementia.
Having a good sleep is also very important for relieving stress. Unfortunately, high level of stress hormone makes getting asleep difficult, as well as worsen the sleep quality. Using relaxation techniques, such as yoga or guided meditations, helps to reduce muscle tension and control breathing and heart rate. Setting a sleep and wake time routine or practicing a sleep restriction may also be useful.
Latest sleeping disorders medicines from Japan.
Japanese medicines for sleep disorders can be divided to herbal traditional remedies for safe sleep improvement and modern chemical compositions for the more complicated cases of chronic insomnia. One of the most famous, well-studied and effective traditional sleep agents is Dragon Calmness. It reduces eye and muscle fatigue, helps to get asleep faster, improves the sleep quality and reduces night terrors in children. Among stronger sleeping pills we can recommend Belsomra (Suvorexant) and Zolpidem tartrate. Belsomra tablets inhibit the action of the wake neurotransmitter called orexin. This helps to reduce the daytime sleepiness, to reduce the psychological stress caused by insomnia, to get asleep faster and to stay asleep longer. Zolpidem tartrate tablets are available in two forms, 5 mg concentration and 10 mg concentration. These tablets work on the GABA receptors in the brain and rapidly affect the first stage of the sleep, without interacting with the second stage or with the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors.
