What is insomnia?

Insomnia is a common sleep disorder.

People’s common disorders indicate many people have unhealthy liver.

If you have it, you may have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or both. As a result, you may get too little sleep or have poor-quality sleep. You may not feel refreshed when you wake up.

Insomnia can result in fatal diseases like diabetes, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, Fibroid, PMS, ADHD, Bipolar, Cancer, and various diseases even including death.

What are the types of insomnia?

Insomnia can be acute (short-term) or chronic (ongoing).

Whether acute or chronic, it indicates the liver is not healthy and the liver needs to be treated properly.

Chronic insomnia lasts for a month or longer. Most cases of chronic insomnia are secondary. This means they are the symptom or side effect of some other problem, such as certain medical conditions, medicines, and other sleep disorders. Substances such as caffeine, tobacco, and alcohol can also be a cause.

Certain medical conditions are usually indicating an unhealthy liver. Medicines always come with side effects of possible damage to the liver. Those affected by such substances may be considered with an unhealthy liver.

Sometimes chronic insomnia is the primary problem. This means that it is not caused by something else. Its cause is not well understood, but long-lasting stress, emotional upset, travel and shift work can be factors. Primary insomnia usually lasts more than one month.

Chronic insomnia is still a sign of an unhealthy liver and it is caused by those described hereinafter below.

Who is at risk for insomnia?

Insomnia is common. It affects women more often than men. You can get it at any age, but older adults are more likely to have it. You are also at higher risk of insomnia if you

  1. Have a lot of stress
  2. Are depressed or have other emotional distress, such as divorce or death of a spouse
  3. Have a lower income
  4. Work at night or have frequent major shifts in your work hours
  5. Travel long distances with time changes
  6. Have an inactive lifestyle
  7. Are African American; research shows that African Americans take longer to fall asleep, don’t sleep as well, and have more sleep-related breathing problems than whites.

Women’s liver is considered more vulnerable to the causes due to menstruation, conception, and childbirth. The older people get the unhealthier the liver gets.

  1. Stress damages the liver.
  2. Depression damages the liver.
  3. People with a lower income usually eat unhealthily.
  4. Agreed
  5. Agreed but not always. If the liver was healthy, he or she can tolerate it easy.
  6. When people have health issues, KOSA Acupuncture usually recommends patients to be inactive so that the liver can take a good rest and focus on self-healing more powerful.
  7. African Americans in the USA may eat unhealthier than other races.

What are the symptoms of insomnia?

Symptoms of insomnia include:

  • Lying awake for a long time before you fall asleep
  • Sleeping for only short periods
  • Being awake for much of the night
  • Feeling as if you haven’t slept at all
  • Waking up too early

These are just the tip of the iceberg. As described above, it can seriously damage the liver.

What other problems can insomnia cause?

Insomnia can cause daytime sleepiness and a lack of energy. It also can make you feel anxious, depressed, or irritable. You may have trouble focusing on tasks, paying attention, learning, and remembering. Insomnia also can cause other serious problems. For example, it could make you may feel drowsy while driving. This could cause you get into a car accident.

All of these problems are indicating unhealthy liver.

What are the treatments for insomnia?

Treatments include lifestyle changes, counseling, and medicines:

  • Lifestyle changes, including good sleep habits, often help relieve acute (short-term) insomnia. These changes might make it easier for you to fall asleep and stay asleep.
  • A type of counseling called cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) can help relieve the anxiety linked to chronic (ongoing) insomnia
  • Several medicines also can help relieve your insomnia and allow you to re-establish a regular sleep schedule

All of these may not be effective and powerful enough to treat the root problem, which is the liver.

KOSA Acupuncture understands the fatal familial insomnia is not a genetic disease.

Even if their genes show identical gene mutation, there is a good chance of the gene mutation acquired accidentally.

Thus, there is always a chance that the mutated gene can be un-mutated.

Wikipedia KOSA Acupuncture
  • Fatal insomnia is a rare disorder that results in trouble sleeping. The problems sleeping typically start out gradually and worsen over time. Other symptoms may include speech problems, coordination problems, and dementia. It results in death within a few months to a few years.
  • It is a prion disease of the brain. It is usually caused by a mutation to the protein PrPC. It has two forms: fatal familial insomnia (FFI), which is autosomal dominant and sporadic fatal insomnia (sFI) which is due to a noninherited mutation.
    Diagnosis is based on a sleep study, PET scan, and genetic testing.
  • Fatal insomnia has no known cure and involves progressively worsening insomnia, which leads to hallucinations, delirium, confusional states like that of dementia, and eventually death. The average survival time from onset of symptoms is 18 months. The first recorded case was an Italian man, who died in Venice in 1765.
  • Symptoms of speech problems, coordination problems, and dementia are considered different forms of indications of the unhealthy liver.
  • It is considered premature liver damage. The prion disease of the brain is still considered a different form of indications of the unhealthy liver. Mutation to the protein PrPC is also considered a different form of indications of the unhealthy liver.
    Unfortunately, a sleep study, PET scan, and genetic testing are not about the liver.
  • Fatal insomnia may be able to be helped by properly treating the liver. Hallucinations, delirium, confusional states like that of dementia are all different forms of indications of unhealthy liver.

Importance of sleeping

Subscribe

The unhealthy liver is considered the cause of insomnia.

The liver is in charge of muscle, sinews, tendon, ligament, vision, eyeball, anger and reproductive organs.

While sleeping, the muscle usage is minimal and the liver wouldn’t be distracted to support muscle usage much.
Therefore, the liver can focus on self-healing while sleeping.

​Before going to bed, the stomach needs to be empty. Otherwise, the liver cannot concentrate on self-healing. FYI, foods can be staying in the stomach for two to five hours.

Sleeping is considered one of the most powerful medicines for the liver.
