The first place I went to on my search on how to beat insomnia was Earth Clinic. I can always count on that site for valuable information.
The battle to obtain a full night of sleep can be plagued with the day’s anxieties falling on your shoulders. Chronic worry with a never-ending list of “to do’s” can make your night miserable. Frequent bathroom breaks don’t help either – I know.
If your insomnia continues for a length of time, you could be facing the following issues:
- Increased blood pressure
- Inability to think clearly
- Overuse of stimulants: coffee, cigarettes, and alcohol
- Lack of energy
- Mood changes
- Loss of quality of life
Some Alternative Available to You through Earth Clinic
Some individuals on Earth Clinic report limited success using 5-HTP which is a natural amino acid supplement containing 5-hydroxytryptophan. Others have tried Valerian root, Passion Flower, melatonin and EFT or emotional freedom techniques. Judy from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, has had great success sprinkling Rutavala Essential Oil on her back, temples, wrists and bottom of her feet thirty minutes before bedtime. She also tried a sea salt bath with lavender oil.
