Insomnia Q & A

What is insomnia?

Insomnia is a condition where you have trouble falling or staying asleep. You may feel tired and ready for bed, but end up spending hours staring at the ceiling and counting sheep. You might wake up in the middle of the night and not be able to drift off again, or even wake up before your alarm goes off.

More than 60 million Americans struggle with insomnia each year. If you’re one of them, Dr. Aina can help. He’s a fellowship-trained sleep medicine expert who takes an integrative approach to wellness. This means that instead of focusing on getting you to sleep, he searches for the conditions and issues that disrupt your rest and focuses on healing your body and mind so you can naturally get the sleep you need.

What causes insomnia?

Many factors contribute to insomnia. You may have a hormonal imbalance that disrupts your sleep cycles or another medical condition, such as:

  • Chronic pain
  • Gastrointestinal problems
  • Neurological conditions like Parkinson’s disease
  • Neuropathy or restless leg syndrome

The medications you take can also disrupt your sleep. Even an over-the-counter decongestant can lead to insomnia.

Mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression can also interfere with your sleep. For example, many people with anxiety suffer from sleepless nights as their minds focus on their fears and worries.

Your lifestyle can also cause insomnia. If you work at home at night, you may find it difficult to unwind before bed. If you work shifts and keep irregular hours, you may find it hard to sleep when you have the chance.

Also, your pre-bedtime routine may not sufficiently relax you enough to drift off. Many people keep a television in their bedrooms, but watching television in bed not only keeps your attention, but the blue light emitted from screens stimulates brain activity that interferes with sleep.

How is insomnia treated?

Dr. Aina’s holistic approach to treating insomnia is highly customized. He provides extensive consultations and sleep studies to identify the issues and conditions that get in the way of your sleep. Depending on your unique needs, he creates a treatment plan that may include nutritional supplements, hormone therapy, naturopathic remedies, and other cutting-edge medical interventions to restore your wellness and improve your sleep.
