Sleep disorder

Are you suffering from insomnia that has been treated unsuccessfully so far and would like to finally fall asleep and sleep through the night again? The range of cannabinoid therapies offered by our collaborating doctors can – insofar as this is medically necessary – help you to finally achieve restful sleep again.

Natural Treatment

Treat sleep disorders with medical cannabis

If previous attempts at treatment with medication do not work or lead to severe side effects, cannabinoid therapy can be a useful supplement to the measures just mentioned. Medical cannabis can not only help you fall asleep faster, but can also help you sleep longer. It can also reduce stress during the day and have a calming effect. Since sleep disorders often occur as an accompanying symptom of a main disease such as chronic pain syndromes, a cannabinoid therapy often leads to a strong alleviation of both disease patterns.

Natural therapy against sleep disorders

Chronic sleep disorders are widespread in Germany. If there is a lack of sleep on individual nights, our body can still compensate for it. However, if the sleep deprivation occurs over months, as in the case of chronic sleep disorders, it seriously endangers our health and treatment becomes necessary. Otherwise, this stress can lead to further illnesses.

The most common causes of sleep disorders

Various causes

The causes of chronic sleep disorders are manifold: stress is most often responsible for restless nights. In general, psychological stresses that we continue to carry around with us when we go to bed. In addition to our psyche, external conditions can also reduce the quality of our sleep: too much light, too much noise or the blue, activating light from our smartphones or other digital devices, which reduces the release of our sleep hormone. All of this can cause us to fall asleep later and have a harder time sleeping through the night. Sleep disorders also occur very frequently as an accompanying symptom of other major illnesses, such as chronic pain.

Optimization

There are many ways in which sleep can be optimized. A healthy diet, fixed sleeping hours, adjusting external conditions, psychotherapy or methods of relaxation, such as meditation, increase the quality of our sleep.

The therapy

With the help of modern technology and intelligent processes, we have developed a form of therapy that allows you to easily contact our specialized collaborating doctors digitally and via video in certain cases and carry out the treatment. The initial interview takes place on site at one of our locations. All other appointments will take place digitally - insofar as this is medically justifiable according to general professional standards * . You can fill out our questionnaire from the comfort of your own home today and get in touch with our team to find out if cannabinoid therapy might be able to help you. The process is completely free up to your first appointment.
