Sip warm milk and honey

Forget the glass of wine—winding down the day with a warm mug of milk and honey is one of the better natural sleep remedies. The secret is in the combination of tryptophan, an amino acid known to induce sleep, and carbohydrates, according to the National Sleep Foundation.

Tryptophan increases the amount of serotonin, a hormone that works as a natural sedative, in the brain. Carbs, like honey, help transmit that hormone to your brain faster. If you’re hungry for a snack, a turkey sandwich will deliver that power-combo of tryptophan and carbohydrates; or try a banana with milk to get some vitamin B6, which helps convert tryptophan to serotonin.

  1. I am convinced my insomnia is due to depression. I have been on Effexor 150mg for about twenty years. My physician seems to not want to take me off Effexor to try other medicines but wants to add medicines to the Effexor. I’m tired of being on so many drugs to help. I also take Lunesta 3mg and clinicians 0.1 mg for anxiety/insomnia. What can I do to get off these meds for the insomnia?

  2. IF IM STILL AWAKE AT 03:00 AM. I TAKE ONE-HALF OF OVER-THE-COUNTER SLEEPING PILL AND CLOSE MY EYES. IT ALWAYS WORKS FOR ME. I WILL SLEEP FOR THREE OR FOUR HOURS UNENTERRUPTED. I FEEL GREAT THE THE MORNING. IT WORKS ONE OR TWO TIMES A WEEK!!!!
