Ayurveda teaches us how to live the life &
what’s the art of living (Ch. su.11 /4). Acharya says that
for leading a healthy life we have to follow some rules of
life like “Dincharya, Rutucharya, and Achar rasayan etc.
In old days people followed these rules in their daily
routine life. Now-a-days life style has changed. Due to
this, they cannot take proper sleep. About a 1/3rd of the
world population is suffering from various sleep disorders
during their life time, Insomnia is chief among them.
Most common in younger and middle age group.
Ayurveda has described Trayoupsthamba for healthier life
and sleep (Nidra) is one of them. Nidranasha has become
a very common lifestyle disorder for human being, mainly
because of stress induced lifestyle.
