Youre not alone! I cant even begin to tell you how common insomnia can be during menopause. And menopause symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats are some of the major reasons for insomnia, as well as stress, anxiety, and thyroid disorder, just to name a few.
If you are menopausal, I urge you to use a natural form of hormone replacement therapy to treat your symptoms. Acupressure is also a great remedy. The two acupressure points traditionally used to relieve insomnia are the Spirit Gate and the Inner Gate. The Inner Gate is located in the middle of the inner side of the forearm, two and one-half finger widths from your wrist. The Spirit Gate is located on the inside of the wrist crease, in line with the little finger. To promote sleep, apply pressure to one point and then the other. Youll soon learn whether you get the most benefit from pressing both points or one in particular.
