Chinese medicine suggests that those who suffer from insomnia are experiencing an imbalance in their spleen.
This imbalance can reduce nourishment to the heart which can lead to anxiety, worry and other thoughts that make sleep difficult.
Before you dismiss these ideas entirely, it's worth being reminded that Chinese doctors discovered a connection between sleep and the digestive system thousands of years before Western medicine.
So if you suspect your spleen may be the cause of your insomnia, what do you do?
(I hadn't heard of most of those before today, either.)
These ingredients are thought to help the spleen by increasing bloodflow, aiding digestion and promoting urination.
As for specific formulations, you'll have to consult the experts for that!
