Sadhak Pitta is a sub-dosha of Pitta and is located in the heart. It controls emotions, desires, decisiveness, and spirituality. Its imbalance makes a person demanding and workaholic, thereby leading to situations that may cause lack of sleep. PranaVata is a sub-dosha of Vata (Air). It is linked to insomnia, worry, anxiety, and problems like depression. PranaVata makes the nervous system sensitive; this sensitive nervous system coupled with an aggravated PranaVata lead to insomnia. Treatment protocol includes pacification of aggravated dosha and strengthening the nervous system. With proper herbal preparations, life style correction is important along with proper exercise.
