If you suffer from insomnia, you don't need me to tell you what insomnia is. However, there are different types of insomnia and different causes of insomnia

There are various treatments for insomnias, depending upon the type and cause of your insomnia. And they are all natural cures for insomnia - you don't need to resort to drugs to get a good night's sleep.

Intermittent insomnia is when you have short term insomnia that occurs from time to time. It is usually caused by the same factors as transient insomnia.
