I am not sure what the "First" "stubborn health condition" was, but Sleeplesness is very common and typically can be treated with simple lifestyle changes among other things. Here is a site I found interesting:
I ran into several different bothersome conditions that could be cured with home remedies accompanied with a small change in your eating habits. Some I was amazed by like remedies for ulcers, bad breath, some topical breakouts for eczema on the skin, cures for the flu and several others I found very useful on this site in my Hub.
Verrucas on the feet and warts on the body can be cured with juice of the garden Euphorbia or Spurge. Be sure to avoid delicate tissue like lips and the eyes. The yellow juice of the Greater Celendine works well too but I don't think it is found in the USA Drinking boiled water as hot as you can bear is good for heartburn. Sprinkle a cut up Onion with dark brown sugar and leave overnight. Drink the resulting juice next day to help coughs and colds.
