I have stumbled across a totally natural insomnia cure for myself and my husband. (Of course everyone is different and everyone needs to take their medical concerns into consideration, do their own research, etc.) I wanted to mention it because I know stress tends to cause insomnia and many of us are under stress. I am very sensitive to Melatonin. Even a 1 mg. tablet makes me a little sleepy in the morning. This caused me to start to experiment. As you may know L-Trptophan was taken off the market several years ago, due to bad batch that caused serious health problems. They have been given the "all clear" and are back on the market...although there still is a small amount of controversy. I only will buy the "pharmaceutical grade." What I ended up with: 1/4 tablet of Melatonin (.25) and 250 mgs. L-Tryptophan (pharmaceutical grade only) Both of these are really small dosages, but combined they work unbelievably well for me and do not leave me feeling groggy in the morning. I also take a cal/mag tablet at night that might help a little with- sleep. IN addition, some nights I take a bath with AHAVA dead sea bath salts. There are similar products, a little cheaper, available on-line. I also like to use a relaxation tape at times. These things combined have me sleeping like a baby and I wake up feeling refreshed and ready to go. Does anyone else use L-Trytophan? Any natural things for insomnia?
