Title

IMPACT OF CONSUMPTION OF KAVA (PIPER METHYSTIAM) IN THE TREATMENT OF STRESS INDUCED INSOMNIA IN ADULTS

Abstract

Kava is an herbal remedy, claimed to have anxiolytic and sedative properties respectively, without dependence potential or any appreciable side-effects. In this pilot study, adults suffering from stress-induced insomnia were treated with kava 120 mg daily. There were 25 male and 20 females with a mean age of 50 years (range 30-65). Pregnant women were excluded, only the middle age groups suffering from insomnia were included. The patients were consuming it from past 3 weeks. The daily dose of kava was 120 mg per day. There was no side effect seen in the middle age group consuming kava 2 to3 times a week. However, for people (20%) consuming it daily faced dryness of mouth. Insomnia was measured in three areas: time to fall asleep, hours slept and waking mood. The normal time to fall asleep is taken to be 20 min or less. The normal number of hours slept is taken as 7+, the maximum severity is no sleep all night. The significant result is found in the psychosomatic behaviour of the patient.
