Tick tock, Tick Tock – gotta stop staring at the clock and get some sleep? There are some fabulous natural fatigue fighters you can try to put you to sleep like a baby.
As we get older the amount of the hormone Melatonin, made in the pineal gland, and which regulates your biological clock, gets smaller and smaller until we have to reach for a supplement. You only need a little to help your body know when it’s time to shut your eyes and start to snore!
Kava Kava is a South American herb that is readily available now in health food stores as an extract. I recommend taking much less than what they say on the label – a few drops (8 – 10) in a small glass of water is enough to give you 8 hour’s sleep. Kava Kava works miraculously as far as I’m concerned, but you cannot fight it and try to stay awake. You need to take it an hour before you want to sleep and then get ready to let it do its magic – get into bed, close your eyes, and let it happen. No distractions, no lights – otherwise, kava kava miraculously will help you stay awake.
Valerian can take the place of Valium and I’d recommend giving it a try. Valerian can be purchased as a pill or in the form of tea or tincture which you dissolve in a little warm water (about a teaspoon) and take before bedtime.
So stay away from harsh pharmaceuticals like Ambien and try some natural remedies for your natural health! Sweet dreams! ZZZZZZZZZZZ
