Insomnia is not just about loss of sleep

  • Insomnia reflects a deeper imbalance of the central nervous system.

  • Sleep researchers have discovered that chronic insomnia is associated with 24-hour activation of the body’s main stress response, also called the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis.

  • Researchers comparing the levels of adrenal hormones ACTH and cortisol of insomniacs and normal sleepers have discovered that insomniacs have higher levels of ACTH and cortisol over a 24-hour period.

  • Therefore, one of the solutions for stress-related insomnia is to reduce the overall level of 24-hour hyperarousal.
