Re: Natural sleep remedy?

I use melatonin too, as does my son and nephew. It doesn't knock you out because your brain produces melatonin naturally and when you can't wind down at night, your brain isn't producing enough to relax you so you can fall asleep. Taking the supplement only relaxes you so you can fall asleep, we love it.

Re: Natural sleep remedy?

Valerian can be found in some grocery stores and in all health food stores

I also use valerian when I am nervous, anxious and when AF shows up packing a cramping punch as it helps to relax my muscles

Re: Natural sleep remedy?

Just a reminder...
just because something is herbal or all natural doesn't mean it's safe. Supplements aren't regulated by the FDA so there's no control over them. For example, I've recently read several articles about how unsafe and dangerous Kava Kava is. It can cause liver problems, I think. So I would be very careful and talk to a dr. before taking anything like that.

I used to have really bad insommia too. Things that work best for me are a warm bubble bath before bed and reading until I'm relaxed enough to sleep. Also, lavender on your pillow or forehead can help. Stay away from the computer or t.v. though they are too stimulating before bed!
