Insomnia is the most prevalent sleep disorder wherein the patient experiences difficulty initiating and maintaining sleep, along with nonrefreshing sleep. It adversely affects a person's professional life, physical and mental health as well as overall quality of life. A 42-year-old female, self-employed, presented with severe anxiety, panic attacks, and insomnia at Kaivalyadhama Health Care Centre, Lonavla. This case study was undertaken to explore the cumulative effect of yoga and naturopathy on anxiety disorders and insomnia. The patient was assessed on day 1 and after completion of 30 days therapy for Sleep Quality, Depression, Anxiety, Stress and Musculoskeletal Pain by using standard questionnaires. The patient underwent yoga and naturopathy treatment for 1 month at Kaivalyadhama Health Care Centre. The results of present case study revealed significant reduction in depression, anxiety, stress, and musculoskeletal pain after 30 days of yoga and naturopathy intervention. The patient also showed improvement in sleep quality and reduction in musculoskeletal pain which was sustained even after 2 months. Thus, an integrative therapy of yoga and naturopathy can be implemented in patients suffering from anxiety disorders and insomnia.
