Insomnia RSS feed for this section

Throughout my health posts I will be dedicating a large portion of articles toward all types of remedies for helping people achieve a better nights’ sleep. What works for one may not work for another but each herb or remedy discussed will have some link to a known antidote for sleeplessness. The topic of sleepless nights is heavy on my heart as I have struggled with a broken sleep pattern for the last 5 years. I have personally seen many doctors, taken numerous tests and tried countless remedies. I have had a measure of success from different supplements, sleeping regimes, nutritional initiatives, and more. I plan to offer effective ‘sleep engaging’ information for all readers who struggle with this issue and pray that along the way you will find deep joyful relaxation and peaceful sleep.

Whatever you choose to try of the natural and herbal remedies it is suggested that you give it time to work. The optimal results may not be achieved overnight but the very best outcome will prevail with consistent and daily application.

This information and the remedies suggested are in no way to be interpreted as a cure or prescription for the issues addressed.
