Almost everyone at some point or the other in his or her life has problems sleeping through the night. It may be due to changing physical abilities, age or hormonal changes. These are all natural life processes and can happen to everyone.
However, if people cope with the sleep disorder while they are facing changes in their lives, then it is quite possible the sleeping problem may cure naturally or else they would have to depend on sleeping aids.
There is no such thing as a least harmful sleeping aid in prescription drugs because every drug has side effects and they do harm the brain to some extent. The worst part about sleeping aids is that it tends to cure one problem and creates another. Sleeping aids cause the person to sleep without actually treating the disorder and a person can also develop addiction for the drug.
Sleeping aids only blind the person’s brain and cause him or her to drift into a hypnotic state. If the person does not take the tablet even for one day, then he or she will not be able to sleep and will start experiencing withdrawal symptoms. Usually sleeping aids do not cure sleep disorders and are capable of offering just a temporary solution to the problem.
Conventional medicine knows only one way of curing sleep disorders and that is by using sleeping aids. However, every individual who wants to adopt these medications should ask himself if he would like to depend on these medications for sleep for the rest of his life. There are several natural options available which do not have as many side effects as prescription sleeping aids. Exercise, aromatherapy and other natural therapies can help a person overcome sleep problems.
