#Insomnia is a common illness. However, during various medication or therapies, insomnia could be relieved more or less. Although some people say that insomnia is a modern disease, in ancient times, perhaps some princes, nobles, or scholars had also suffered from insomnia. (At least the opera sings like this: Nessun dorma) So, is there any other way to treat it in that time?
In ancient India, there was a treatment called #Shirodhara. Shiro represents the head, and Dhara means the flow. Like the name, dripping water on his forehead made him fall asleep. Indians usually use essential oils, herbal water, milk or pure water.
In India, a group of scientists conducted an experiment in order to confirm the benefits of #AncientTherapy. (Pokharel and Sharma, 2010) They found there was a good improvement in sleep quality. In addition, milk might be the best in Shirodhara. However, they said the mechanism was difficult to explain. One possibility is that warm milk poured on the forehead is very comfortable and stimulate brain’s signal of sleep. Another explanation by ancient yoga is Shirodhara can restore Sanjnavaha Srotas to calmness, increase Kapha Dosha and suppress Vata and Pitta Doshas. Okay, I have no idea what these words mean either.
In any case, if you don’t have the opportunity to taste the comfort of Shirodhara, the #calmpatch containing #peptides can also soothe nervousness! Please visit our website: https://www.lamarckbio.com/collections/patchpark
