According to modern research, there are more than 80 types of sleeping issues, from insomnia to apnoea. When people sleep, the brain still works, but the feeling of rest and relaxation, especially mental relaxation, is achieved due to the process of destroying the excessive connections between the neurons. This allows to forget the anxieties of the previous day, let go the emotions experienced before sleeping, forget unnecessary details about daily issues, etc. The brain reassesses and reviews all the neuron connections and structures, and those unnecessary, like impressions, received while riding a bus, get destroyed. This way, space, and capacities are freed for new connections, potentially more useful for the person.
As it becomes clear, sound and healthy sleep are crucial for all people, and while physical rest can be achieved by other types of relaxation, the brain cannot function without deep sleep, because it is overburdened with neuron connections that make no sense, and has difficulties forming new networks. This is why it is so hard to study or work after a sleepless night while doing house chores is less tiring.
Yet, almost every person has faced some kind of sleeping issue or insomnia on a certain moment of their life. Some suffer from positive or negative stress, some can be too emotionally aroused to fall asleep, some wake up in the middle of the night and cannot get back to sleep again. There are different methods to solve these problems, like airing the room, taking a warm bath, drinking herbal tea, doing evening yoga, etc. However, if the issue is severe enough, these methods may fail to have any effect. If the insomnia is chronic, this is a sign that the brain has issues falling asleep.
If you cannot fall asleep, it means the slowdown neurons in the brain do not work properly. To find out whether this is a timely issue or they are damaged in some way, you should visit the doctor. it is better to address pharmacological methods of coping with insomnia and do not rely on home remedies any more, because you can get even more damage and no positive effect at all.
It is a well-known fact that 90 percent of all people in the world have faced insomnia in some point of time, while from 25 to 50 percent of people suffer insomnia on a regular basis, with different levels of severity. Insomnia can be classified as either difficulty to fall asleep, reduced quantity of hours sleeping, reduced quality of sleep (no deep sleep), and even change of the time of falling asleep. One of the most widespread types of substances used by pharmacology is barbiturates. Sometimes, there are also used the benzodiazepines and cannabinoids. The latter become more popular due to mild yet powerful effect, and availability in many different forms.
