Oh my goodness, how I suffered. How I wish I would have had these insomnia cures years ago. You know 3 nights in a row of hardly sleeping at all. Feeling like a zombie in the day, nodding off on the couch in the evening and miserably wide awake in the night.
TAKE BACK YOU LIFE!
Take control of your ability to sleep without using harmful drugs that can leave you in an addictive and worse state than ever.
Having night after night of restful sleep is a precious commodity. Priceless really.
Don’t try to be perfect, just grasp the following insomnia cures (natural). Be aware of them. Do what you can. See if they don’t give you more power over your ability to rest.
Hyperglycemia will ruin your night
Ever heard of hypoglycemia, you probably have. It usually occurs when you eat too much sugar and your blood sugar levels get to high. The body responds by putting insulin into your system which often makes it swing back to a level that is so low, you feel like taking a nap. So, hypoglycemia is the state of having low blood sugar and feeling drowsy.
Well the exact opposite can happen. You have so much blood sugar that you feel like you can’t relax. This is hyperglycemia.
If you eat too much easily digestible protein in the evening hours it can cause this state and make sleeping very difficult.
Solution: Eat the majority of your protein for breakfast and lunch. And especially don’t eat a high protein meal near bedtime.
Magnesium is the King of Relaxation
Not only that, the majority of people are deficient in this mineral. Turns most supplements on the market don’t really seem to do anything. This is so crucial I wrote a whole article on it. You can find the magnesium article here.
Your computer and TV stop the pineal gland from secreting melatonin.
I have an entire post dedicated to melatonin and sleep located here. It also discusses the use of it in pill form.
Melatonin is a wonderful hormone. As the day turns dark we naturally begin to get drowsy and will very soon fall into a deep sleep.
EXCEPT… We don’t let it get dark. We have the lights on and we often stare at the TV and computer right up until bedtime.
- Even though you may be tired
- Even though you may even drift off to sleep watching the tube
- Even though you might fall asleep for a little while
Your lack of natural melatonin production can keep you from dropping into a deep sleep.
You see our bodies react to light. The blue light emitted from the television and computer screen mimic the blue light of dawn.
No matter how tired we may be that blue light is setting in motion our body’s mechanisms to get us to WAKE UP.
So, what are you supposed to do, sit in a dark room all evening?
You could and it would work. There are many reports of people who go to live in undeveloped countries (without electricity) who say they would go to bed early and awake at the crack of dawn feeling refreshed.
But maybe you don’t want to do that.
The solution is to block the blue light. When a former IBM computer pioneer found out that his inventions had helped cause sleeplessness for (possibly) millions of people, he started selling glasses that block blue light.
Only problem is, his glasses are almost 70 bucks a pair.
I decided to buy blue-light-blocking glasses in bulk, so that everyone can get them for almost half price. Click here for the more info page.
Insomnia Cure: Natural Sleeping Pill
There is a powerful supplement that you can try that will make it a lot easier to have a long restful sleep: 5-htp.
5-htp does at least 2 crucial things that are key to sleep. It is a precursor to melatonin and serotonin, and it is also intermediate in their biosynthesis!
One of the main benefits of serotonin is that it allows for prolonged, deep periods of sleep.
Problem about 1/3 of the population is chronically low in serotonin due to various things not the least of which is stress.
5-htp (being a precursor to serotonin) is the perfect supplement to help your body return to normal sleep patterns.
Start slow with a low dosage 2-3 hours before bed. It can cause nausea at higher doses. 50mg max.
Click here for a doctor formulated version with lots of further information.
Warning: You must get 5-htp that is Verified Peak X Free. Peak X is a contaminant that is dangerous to your health. Click Here for a good example of a verified peak x free product on amazon.com.
Exercise during the day only
You must exercise to be able to get a restful sleep. Long, brisk walks are the best. Also, a really great thing is a rebounder!
I count mine as one of the very best investments I have ever made in my life. Easily one of the best things I ever bought. It is so simple to hop on it and get your heart pumping and the body’s lymph system in motion. These are crucial elements to health and rest.
Do yourself a favor and get a needak. Nothing compares.
Important point though: don’t do aerobic types of exercises within 2-3 hours of bedtime. We do these exercises to raise our metabolism. We don’t want our metabolism up when we are trying to sleep.
Watch out for chocolate, it has a strong non-caffeine stimulant.
Again, this substance is only for early in the day. Like around noon time. You may be able to consume chocolate and go to bed, but the stimulant starts to peak later and then you end up being awake half the night! More info on wikipedia.
Caffeine’s half life is about 5 hours
Don’t take this lightly, if you have a cup of coffee at 3pm, only have of it has been eliminated from your body at 8pm! Get more info on wikipedia. Make coffee for morning only. Same goes for any other beverage with caffeine.
The darker the better
We’ve already talked about light. But it is important to remember that you will sleep best in a completely dark room. If that is not possible, invest in a comfortable sleep mask.
