Soup to improve sleep quality
Many people think the elderly folks do not sleep for long hours and like waking up early in the morning to exercise and enjoy their breakfast. How true is this? Studies show that the elderly people generally sleep less compared to young people but still require 6 to 8 hours of sleep. Yet, many of them think that insomnia is normal part of aging.
According to Chinese Medicine theories, the inability to fall asleep easily, waking up in the middle of the night, and the inability to fall asleep again after waking up in the middle of the night are symptoms of insomnia. Most of the problems elderly folks experience are caused by the disruption of the balance in the qi and blood and the yin and the yang energy, as well as nocturia (night urination).
If an individual experiences sweating and palpitation and is not able to fall asleep due to stress, it is important to replenish the yin and clear the heat from the body to improve the yin-deficient body constitution. Other accompanying symptoms include dizziness, soreness on the waist, and tinnitus. For those who have issues falling asleep again after waking up, they can take a nap in the afternoon to catch up on some sleep instead.
