Tips for Insomnia

Here are a few tips for insomnia. There are many effective natural insomnia treatments. Have a slice of turkey or chicken or a banana before heading to the bed. These foods contain tryptophan an amino acid that's used to make serotonin. And serotonin is a brain chemical that helps you sleep. Keep the portion small.

Carbohydrates help tryptophan enter the brain. Try a glass of warm milk and a cookie or warm milk with a spoonful of honey. A sprinkling of cinnamon might add sedative properties of its own.

Insomnia herbal treatment with Valerian helps people to fall asleep without any side effects. It binds to the same receptors in the brain that tranquilizers such as Valium bind to. Take one-half to one teaspoon of valerian tincture or two capsules of valerian root an hour before bed.

Californian poppy preparations are widely recommended to treat sleeping problems and nervous exhaustion and are the natural treatment for Insomnia.
Infusion Put 1 teaspoon of the dried plant into a cup of boiling water. Leave to infuse for 10 minutes. Strain. Drink
1-2cups in the evening.
Liquid Extract Take 1-2 ml in a glass of
water in the evening.
Capsules 50-75mg dry extract. Take 1-2
capsules just before going to bed.
Tincture 1:4 in 45% alcohol
Take 10 drops, three times a day in a little cold water after meals, and up to 20 drops at bedtime.

Spicy or sugary foods at suppertime is usually a bad idea.

Avoid caffeinated drinks, alcohol and smoking before bedtime.

  1. Hi,

    The best management for insomnia is treating the underlying cause. Since stress is one of the most common causes of insomnia experienced by almost all age group, stress relieving options are greatly used to get a good night sleep. Nowadays, yoga is one of the most famous practices to relieve stress, get a good night sleep, and be healthy.

    "Yoga" is a Sanskrit term which means union. Originated in India, yoga is the union of the mind body and spirit. Over time, as practice differs, yoga became a system of breathing and body movements to relieve stress. Yoga does not relax the body, it also wakes it up through flexibility. The practice of yoga involves the whole body as breathing, concentration and movements are all related. After all the contortions and poses, the body relaxes with corresponding slow heart rates. As these events happen, muscle contractions diminish and they begin to relax.
