Some experts say natural remedies such as acupuncture can be a great way to treat sleep disorders such as insomnia. According to the experts, acupuncture - a procedure adapted from Chinese medical practice in which specific body areas are pierced with fine needles for therapeutic purposes or to relieve pain or produce regional anesthesia - has fewer side effects than prescription drugs, is longer lasting than medicinal relief and are less expensive than insomnia medication. Ask your physician if acupuncture might be right for you.
If you are having difficulty falling asleep because of insomnia, there are other non-medicinal ways to treat it. Some find relief from hypnosis, hypnotherapy or self-hypnosis.
