Trouble Sleeping?

Have Trouble Sleeping at Night?

Many people who experience symptoms of Parkinson’s disease do have trouble sleeping.  You should be able to gain helpful insights into a potential reason for this problem depending on when you cannot get to sleep at night.  Organs in the body are more active at specific times during the day and night according to the tried and true Chinese Medicine Clock.

Here is an example of how you can use the Chinese Time Clock when you have difficult sleeping. It helps you determine what may be causing the problem. Do you often have a difficult time getting to  sleep between 1 am and 3 am?  If you do, the potential cause is a liver imbalance or a persistent stagnation in energy flowing through the liver.

If this is a pattern of yours, acupuncturists recommend that you can cleanse your liver at the start of each day by drinking a cup of warm water that contains the juice of a half lemon squeezed into it.  Exercise during the day is important. In addition, you can also try taking 1-2 tablespoons of raw apple cider vinegar throughout the day.

These are all natural remedies acupuncturists recommend for liver cleanses which, with a little luck, may also facilitate sounder sleep during that 1-3 am hour.

Sweating Out Parkinson’s Disease

What follows is an email from Chris Hagerseth who is on a mission to spread the news Parkinson’s is reversible.

Road to Recovery from Parkinsons Disease

Here at Sweating Out Parkinson’s Disease, Inc., we’re are on a mission to Uganda to provide holistic medical care to Persons with Parkinson’s disease (PwP). The 40,000 PwPs in Uganda receive no care at all. There is but one doctor for every 12,000 people. Illiteracy and poverty make their situation virtually hopeless.

But we have a unique intervention: a holistic approach to Parkinson’s that involves psychological adjustment, exercise, and yoga.

Our goal is to raise $36,000 over six weeks. To make this a success, our campaign needs a loyal group of “true believers” who can email the campaign to 100 of their friends or colleagues on launch day. In exchange, you’ll get a free T shirt and the deep satisfaction knowing you are part of a movement that will radically change the lives of thousands of people.

Insomnia? Can’t Get to Sleep Until After Midnight?

Is Insomnia a Big Issue for You?

Do you have difficulty getting to sleep until after midnight?  Healing will be obstructed if you have insomnia and are unable to get a good  nights sleep every night.  Many people with Parkinson’s symptoms report they seldom can get to sleep until after midnight or later.  What might be the cause of this?

The Chinese Medicine clock gives us a fascinating clue as to the cause.  Gall bladder energy is strongest from 11 pm until 1 am.  If you have restrictions in your muscles and cramping throughout your body during the day and evening, gall bladder issues are likely to be the cause.  Why would the gall bladder be an issue for people with Parkinson’s symptoms?

The gall bladder is profoundly impacted by stress. Clearly, when stress has flared, symptoms will typically always worsen. Reduce stress. Your gall bladder will thank you. You will also find it easier to get to sleep at night. Easier said than done, right?

Acupuncturists offer a recommendation that may well help you out when you are having difficulty with stress during the day and getting to sleep at night. Massage the sides of your head where the gall bladder channel runs. More specifically, rub immediately above and behind the ears, followed up by squeezing the tops of your shoulders.

While acupuncture itself is not one of the top therapies that people find to be useful for calming their Parkinson’s symptoms, it is an excellent therapy for insomnia and depression, both of which can be significant impediments to recovery for persons diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.

I frequent a community acupuncture clinic which offers treatments at a very affordable price. Such clinics are now popping up in many cities and countries. There is no longer a reason to let finances be a barrier to getting acupuncture treatments. It is well worth taking the time to explore this therapeutic option if you have difficulty sleeping at night.
