Natural Sleep remedy?

Does anyone know of remedies that are homeopathic and that would help me with sleep? I seem to get up in the middle of the night and unable to go back to sleep. Thanks.

Re: Natural Sleep remedy?

I would suggest two things. Tryptophan might help you - taken before bedtime. The other is EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique.

Re: Natural Sleep remedy?

The best thing that works for me every time is Jiaogulan Drops. There is lots of information available online. Jiaogulan even tastes delicious. I can take it in the middle of the night when I can't get back to sleep, and it makes me deliciously drowsy. I always fall back to sleep easily.

I would not be without my Jiaogulan Drops.

Re: Natural Sleep remedy?

Melatonin @ approx. 3 grams around 20 min. to bedtime has helped a lot. Get the sub-lingual (under tongue). Something very simple I have also done is started wearing ear plugs. Kinda fun, seems like you are in a cave. Somehow it works well. My wife snores like a freight train!

1. The Valerian Root - natural herb, available in pills in suppliment stores
2. lavender essential oil rubbed in chest with carrier oil(preferably Pine Nut Oil), or put on pillow(3 drops)
3. Reading Theory of Artificial Intelligence.

Thumbs up Re: Natural Sleep remedy?

We use a product from Andrew Lessman called "Night Time". It has Valerian Root, Melatonin, Passionflower, Chamomile, Hops, and 5-HTP whatever that is.

Night Time works quite well taking 1-2 capsuls before bedtime.

Re: Natural Sleep remedy?

I was having the same problem and I bought Melatonin 10 mg and it works great. Must be the higher dosage but I sleep all night.

Smile Re: Natural Sleep remedy?

Melatonin might help you. Personally, I take
two 3mg capsules before retiring. It's all
natural and no side effects like some of the
prescription drugs on the market.

Re: Natural Sleep remedy?

Why did you get up at midnight? Nightmares? Sweating? Heart problem? Breathing problem? Try some palm dates before going to bed. They might be helpful.

Re: Natural Sleep remedy?

1. Earplugs, so that you don't wake up once your asleep
2. Apple Cider Vinegar an hour before you go to bed. You should mix 1 tablespoon with 8 ounces of water.
3. Go to the bathroom before you turn in for the night.

Re: Natural Sleep remedy?

Where do I find Jiaogulan drops? China Town does not have the drops, only tea.

Re: Natural Sleep remedy?

I have also encountered the same problem before. I used to take Sleepasil 30 minutes before I sleep. It's effective and it doesn't have side effects because it's made up of herbal plants. Just try it and see if it will suit you. And yeah, the earplugs work too.

If you want a good sleep try using pure Majoram oil on your pillow case. When I use this I don't even remember getting sleepy! It does however have a scent remanecent of dirt but your not usually awake long enough for it to really bother you.
