Home Remedies for Insomnia
nothing but sleep disorder. Many prefer to take the help of sleeping
pill. Sleeping pills of course make you sleep faster, but the quality
of sleep is much inferior. You don't get the fresh feeling the next
morning. Besides this, the sleeping pills are not a permanent and
long time solution. Everyone does require quality sleep for their
well being. Here are few home remedies for insomnia.
Remember, insomnia is not a mild health problem.
People with insomnia are more prone for depression and killer heart
disease. The home remedies mentioned here may take long time for
treating the problem, but be sure you will get out of the problem
once for all.
Regular exercise is first home remedy suggested.
Exercise here doesn't means going to gym and working out till you
get tired. Just brisk walking or jogging for 40 minutes will do.
The exercise must not be done before bedtime. In that case, the
exercise will further complicate insomnia problem. Exercise must
be done in the morning or evening.
The other home remedy is saying absolute
no to naps. Napping for few hours in a day too can disturb your
sleep pattern and results in insomnia, hence avoid it in total.
Indulge in some other activity instead of napping such as reading
books, watching television, , doing household chores etc. Never
eat, just before going to bed. Your dinner must be two to three
hours before sleep. Otherwise the stomach will be working in full
vigor to digest your dinner, thus preventing you from sleeping.
One has to sleep within 7 minutes after closing
the eyes in bed. This is absolutely normal. If more than 15 minutes
taken to get sleep, then it is a problem. For some the above mentioned
home remedies may not work, there is nothing to bother. There are
so many other remedies that are discussed below. Any one of them
will certainly help them.
Inhaling the smoke of marijuana just before
going to bed helps immensely. Some may feel slightly groggy in the
morning. Brisk walk for few minutes will correct that problem. This
method is not permitted in some country on morality or legality
grounds, but it works for insomnia.
You can consume tea with milk steeped for
3 minutes with added honey [2 tea spoon]. Have a shower which reduces
the body temperature. Lie down in bed, you are sure to sleep in
few minutes. Your insomnia is gone. Taking juice of herb called
kava kava two hours before beds time also helps insomnia patients.
Take Terragon leaves. Boil them for some
time. Leave it for 40 minutes. Drink the broth few hours before
bedtime. Your insomnia is taken care. It is always better to go
for grape juice and tea instead of coffee and soda. Consume red
wine instead of preferred alcoholic drink such as rum, brandy etc.
limit the consumption to two glasses. Avoid oils food and pork in
the dinner. Let the dinner be as light as it can be.
Place a sachet of lavender under the pillow in the morning. Sleep
in the same pillow at night. Good sleep is guaranteed. Roast a pinch
of cardamom. Let it become grey black in color. Boil the same roasted
cardamom in a glass of water. Consume the same half an hour before
sleep. It works wonderfully well for your sleep.
Exercising regularly, drinking caffeine free
drinks, and limiting sugar rich drinks before bed time helps you
to sleep well. Vanilla scent has calming effect. Hence lighting
vanilla candle in bed room during bed time, and using vanilla scented
moisturizer on hands and legs, helps greatly. Bathing in hot water
at night with little basil mixed in water, relaxes the body thus
making one sleep deeply.
