Insomnia Home Remedies

Insomnia isn't a problem that was invented in the twenty-first century. People have been suffering from insomnia probably since cavemen walked the earth. Long before there were doctors with prescription pads and drug stores on every corner, people have been suffering from and treating insomnia. As you might imagine, there are a lot of home remedies for the problem of insomnia.

There is, of course, the famous cup-of-warm-milk home remedy. Everybody has heard of that one, I guess. The idea is to heat milk to just below the boiling point (you don't want to "scald" it) and sip it slowly just before bedtime. There are, of course, variations. One variation is to add a teaspoon full of honey to the cup of warm milk. Honey is said to have magical properties that are sleep-inducing.

Another home remedy for insomnia is to soak one's feet in a tub of very hot water just before going to bed. Warm feet are supposed to induce sleep. The soaking process should last about 15 minutes, and more hot water will need to be added at least once. Of course, there are variations of this home remedy for insomnia, too. One variation is to sit in cold water while soaking the fee in the hot water. I don't have any idea why this is supposed to induce sleep, but there are those who swear by the technique.

The old "after-dinner" constitutional is an old home remedy for insomnia that really does have some science to back it up. That brisk walk after the evening meal and about four hours before bedtime will cause you to become sleepy right at bedtime as your heart rate slows and your blood pressure drops.

The old notion that a day of hard physical labor promotes a good night's sleep is one that is also based on fact. The harder and the longer you work during daylight hours, the sounder you will sleep at night.
