POTIONS, TEAS, VITAMINS, DRINKS, MASSAGES AND HERBAL BATHS – ARE ALL HELPFUL IN INDUCING A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP!
TRY THE FOLLOWING AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK…..

1. A herbal bath can soothe your nerves and relieve insomnia.
Boil 2 ounces of Balm leaves in water for a few minutes, then let
steep for 20 minutes. Strain and add to your bath water. Your
bath water should be warm, but not hot, as the latter could
stimulate rather than soothe.

2. Make a tea out of one or several of the following herbs:
Catnip, Cowslip, German Chamomile, Hops, Passion flower,
Valerian, Balm, Linden and Melissa. Drink several times a day
if possible.

3. Inositol, one of the B vitamins, as well as pantothenic acid,
both help to induce sleep. Try both together.
Inositol: 1 to 3 grams and Pantothenic Acid: 1/2 to 2 grams.
Drink an hour before bedtime.
4. Tryptophan is a natural amino acid which induces sleep.
Combined with calcium it can be even more effective. Try the
following program:

(a) 3 trypthophan tablets half an hour before bedtime.

(b) 1 chelated calcium and magnesium tablet 3 times a day
and 3 tablets half an hour before bedtime.


5. Turkey is an excellent source of tryptophan and milk of calcium;
therefore, a turkey sandwich with a cup of warm milk at bedtime
might cure your sleeplessness. A cheese sandwich would also
help, as cheese (as well as milk) contains both tryptophan and
calcium.


6. Make an effective sleeping potion:

(a) Combine 1 tbsp. tincture of Valerian (from a pharmacy),
1-1/2 tsp. of apple cider vinegar, 3 tbsp. of honey and 2 tbsp.
of gin or vodka in a cup. Stir.

(b) Add 2 tbsp. or more of hot milk and stir again.

Drink this mixture warm or hot half an hour before bedtime. If
you are not asleep within an hour, repeat the dose. Do not
drink more than 2 doses in an evening.


7. Massage the soles of your feet with mustard oil at bedtime.

Nymph completed her L.T.C.L. in music and drama, and obtained a B.A. Psychology and Philosophy a few years later. She trained as formal singer under various renowned vocal advisers and performed in numerous concerts, recitals, and oratorios. After a car accident that lead to a few neuro surgeries, she began investigating the benefits of deep relaxation and wrote a few books and numerous articles on the subject.
