    Tossing and turning all night only to sleep a few hours can be extremely frustrating. Thankfully I am not often a victim of dreadful insomnia. If you are having a difficult time falling asleep there are a few things you can do to get some shut-eye. The first thing to do is read. Read anything! Grab your local newspaper and read the police scanner reports. Select a book or magazine that will capture your interest but not too much as to keep you awake, reading until the end. This natural technique can be helpful for those who are employed in physically demanded jobs that do not stimulate thinking muscle (brain). Another way to avoid sleepless nights is to reduce caffeine intake. Switching to decaffeinated teas or coffees in the mid-afternoon can curb the caffeinated zombie symptoms. Our always-on-the-run society can catch up to our bodies and scramble our natural sleep patterns. Avoid energy drinks, teas, coffees, and any stimulants at least 4 hours before bed. A light, relaxing yoga practice or meditation can also invite sleep and relaxation. Overall, find what works best for you. Sometimes trial-and-error is inevitable but the rewards are blissful sleep.

    Routine is key in eliminating this anoying ailment.Among the many home remedies for insommnia include, a warm bath with lavendar( aroma therapy). Foods high in trytophan at night, are very helpful. Such as milk, turkey, and nut butters. Among the other recommendations include calcium, and magnesium. Both are very relaxing to the body.
    Turning the volume down on the Tv, and the lights down will also help. As light hits the eyes it stimulates the pineal gland. Melatonin is produced when darkness falls, therefore eliminate as much light as possible in the bedroom, this includes Tv.
    As we age we aren't able to produce melatonin as well as we use to, either because of aging, or low intake of serotonin producing foods, or the  co factors. Melatonin maybe taken in supplement form, as high as 20mg a day.
    Other recommendations include room darkening curtains,http://www.amazon.com/Grommet-Thermal-Insulated-Blackout-Curtain/dp/B003S6L3PY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1362964036&sr=8-2&keywords=room+darkening+curtains, and white noise from a fan.
    The supplement has been found to be effective in the treatment of many conditions, including cancer. reference: Medline

    Resin. It's a poison found in wheat that kills you VERY quickly.

    What? You asked for natural. Please be more specific next time. Herbal, is a good adjective to use. Alternative is a good adjective but will lead you to weird things like crystals and hocus pocus garbage.

    Anyway for an herbal remedy for insomnia try Chamomile tea, I wrote about it in a hub which is the only reason I remember this. It's pretty much without serious side effects unless you're pregnant...in which case do not take Chamomile tea...actually if you're pregnant just don't even touch the bloody flower. It's very dangerous to the clutch of cells within the womb.
