Natural Sleep Remedies

Insomnia seems to be a common problem, and there are many natural sleep remedies available today. Unlike the pharmaceutical alternatives, natural insomnia remedies are not addictive.

Stress

Sleep Tonight Stress Reducing Sleep Aid 28 tabs

Stress is a common reason why people are unable to sleep. One of the best natural sleep remedies is learning how to let go of stress. Setting aside some time before bed to unwind, clear your mind of the days activities as well as those that need done tomorrow will help set the mood for sleep. A warm relaxing bath with aromatic herbs such as chamomile, lavender or heather will soothe tense muscles and help the body relax. Turning off the television an hour before bed, reducing the time spent playing high action video games and listening to soothing music are also ways to get in the mood for sleep.

Food for Sleep

Bedtime Natural Sleep Aid 16 tea bags .85 oz: C

Many foods and beverages can help the body rest. Natural sleep remedies include chamomile, lavender, passionflower and acai berry tea to reduce muscle tension. Lemon balm, fennel, pine needles and peppermint will also provide a relaxing tasty tea that will help relieve stress. Oats will also help the body relax whether placed in bath water or eaten as a cereal or in cookies for a bedtime snack. Whole grain snacks like crackers and toast, nuts and nut butter are also good foods for sleep. Apples, whole grain cereals with milk, raisins and sesame seeds all contain tryptophan. Tryptophan is a natural substance that helps the brain to calm down which may provide a restful nights sleep.

Herbs

Valerian 2000 Complex - 60 Tablets - Nutra-Life

Teas made from herbs can be used as natural sleep remedies. Hops, which is used to produce beer, can be made into a tea and sweetened with honey or milk. Lemon balm, passionflower and catnip can also be brewed into tasty bedtime teas. Valerian, skullcap and St. John’s wort are stronger sleeping herbs that can be but these have a very disagreeable taste. Taking these herbs in a capsule form is preferred. Do not use St. John’s wort for any reason if you are taking any type of prescription drug for depression or insomnia.

Vitamins

Higher Power ZMA Nighttime, 90 Capsules

Taking additional vitamins in the morning may allow the body to get a good night’s sleep. Vitamins are natural sleep remedies. The B Vitamins are especially helpful as they provide the energy for metabolism. Proper metabolism allows the body to heal itself and ward off infections. Magnesium helps the body utilize calcium and Vitamin C boosts the immune system and helps process Vitamin E and antioxidants like those found in the acai berry. Folic acid, which occurs naturally in orange juice, is important to the body as is copper. Taking a multi-vitamin daily can help restore good sleeping habits.

Massage

Pure Essential Oil Lavender 2 Oz

While it is difficult to massage yourself, there are commercial products that can help relieve muscle tension. Massage chairs, hand held massage tools or a spouse may help loosen tight muscles. Tight neck and shoulder muscles are signs of stress, and allowing those muscles to relax prior to bedtime may provide a more restful sleep. Using Lavender Essential Oil during the massage, or even in a before-bed bath, is also a great way to sleep into a deep sleep. Almost all natural sleep remedies are pleasant. Warm baths, soothing music and cookies are great ways to help your body fall asleep easily and naturally.
