The Surprising Relationship Between Insomnia and the Gut

Click here for audio

“I took sleeping pills and was able to sleep, but I’m sleepy during the day and it’s hard.”

Someone came to say


On examination, I found a lump in my neck and a very stiff shoulder.

And his stomach was swollen.


Even the slightest touch of the belly seemed to give it strength, but this is because it has a self-defense function that prevents it from being stimulated.

In other words, it protects itself so that it doesn’t get any worse.

That’s how bad it is.



“Insomnia is because you’re hungry.”

I was surprised when I told him.


I think this surprise is justified.

Insomnia is considered a mental illness.

It seems that this person also went to a psychosomatic medicine before coming to our hospital.


“Why do you get insomnia when you’re hungry?”




The Surprising Relationship Between Insomnia and the Gut


from long ago

“I’m hungry”


“Chill the liver”

“It makes sense”

There is a proverb that connects the stomach and feelings.

I think that the old people knew from experience that the stomach and feelings are connected.


In modern medicine, it is said that the gut is the second brain.

Each intestinal cell thinks by itself and moves independently even if it does not receive commands from the brain.

From this, we can say that the intestines are connected to the spirit.


From my clinical experience, almost all people who suffer from insomnia or depression have bloated stomachs.

And when the stomach gets better, sleep will also improve.




How to improve stomach bloating


“What do you eat every day?”

“I eat properly at home at night.”

“How is your lunch?”

“I’m eating a convenience store bento.”


Actually, this convenience store bento has a lot to do with stomach bloating.

People who regularly eat convenience store lunch boxes are very bloated.


“Is it because of the additives?”

That being said, even if you eat a gyudon from a gyudon chain store, you won’t feel very hungry.

Of course, I think gyudon also contains additives.


I don’t think many people carry gyudon around for a long time, but I think there are many people who buy convenience store lunch boxes and rice balls in the morning and eat them in the evening.

That’s why I think you have to add a lot of preservatives.


“Aren’t you going to cook for yourself?”

When asked, a man living alone

“I don’t have a rice cooker”

Some say.


I instructed this person to buy and eat at a nearby bento shop, and after a week, when I checked the condition of my stomach, it was considerably improved.

It’s quite difficult to find additive-free lunch boxes, but it doesn’t seem to be that bad unless it’s a convenience store lunch box.


If you are suffering from insomnia and eat convenience store lunch boxes, why not stop eating them?
