Foods rich in Tryptophan will help induce natural sleep and aid in reducing anxiety and tension.
Avoid caffeine for a few hours before bedtime too.
foods rich in Tryptophan are ~ bananas, cottage cheese, milk, meat, fish, turkey, bananas, dried dates, peanuts and all protein rich foods ............. turkey sandwiches for supper may just do the trick buddy......... :0)
Have a soothing cup of organic loose leaf chamomile tea ~ this could be the sleep remedy you need too♥
The tea bag and commercial varieties of herbal teas such as chamomile tea could never be of any therapeutic value as they have had so much of the essential oils pulverised from them .......... only organic will do buddy ♥
Also, try putting a few drops of pure essential lavender oil into a warm bath and soak in that for 15 minutes just before bedtime ~ the lavender oil is a great natural stress reliever and will relax you enormously ♥
Don't use the lavender oil if you are pregnant or breast feeding ♥
For more difficult insomnia, try 1mg of melatonin sublingually (dissolved under the tongue) 15 minutes before bedtime♥any good health food store will be able to provide you with all these things♥
Naturally resolving the problem will always be the best way .... :0)
hope this helps you a bit ♥
