Chinese Herbal Medicine (ZRAS) for the treatment of sleep disorders, a placebo randomised control trial.

Insomnia is a very common problem, and one where many sufferers seek alternatives to conventional drug/psychological treatment. Chinese herbal medicine has treated sleep disorders for centuries, however we do not completely understand the magnitude nor mechanism of action for these herbs. This research will review the current evidence of traditional Chinese herbal medicine for insomnia, and select a single formula for a randomised controlled trial.
