   Iacta alea est posted on Main Page The Lobby  Anyone have a home remedy for insomnia?

   Kono  One that usually works if I need it.

The principal drawback is that it might not be exactly legal, depending on where you live.

   Escaped commieny  We probably should be around the office water cooler at the Coffee Klatch, but here goes. 8 years of torment has kept me from sleeping plus like you, we have had medical issues and tragedies (5 surgeries in 7 mos ) but this election has been prayers answered, Lord Deliver Us from Evil. Sorry for the loss of our Mom.
Have you tried to darken your room, the body produces Melatonin at night and to help, you can get super strength Melatonin. I ordered from Puritan Pride for my panic attack Beagle (vet approved ) but I take it too for those nights that you are tired but just can't seem to shut your mind off. No chocolate or caffeine and some warm milk is an old remedy. WHO else has some suggestions ?

   Kono  For no particular reason I stopped by the faith wall and noticed you'd mentioned the same topic a month ago, lacta alea est. I sure hope you haven't struggled continuously with this for that long. A relapse of a recurring problem would be hard enough to handle...

While it doesn't do much for me, I've heard some people swear by Tart Cherry Juice (it has that melatonin that escaped commieny mentioned ).

   Gerty  My dear husband swears that a boring book does the trick all the time!

Simple methods of meditation (I am told ) help clear the mind and allow sleep to come naturally.

Good luck, Iacta!

   Calvinesq  I discovered this by accident. I woke up once and discovered that I has actually breathing very rapidly. So, when insomnia hit, I decided to replicate it with a simple formula.

What I do is breathe rapidly (I do it through my nose, but I suppose breathing through mouth should also work ). So here it is:

Take moderate (not shallow or deep ) breaths rapidly, saying (no thinking! ) with each inhale and exhale "in" and "out", respectively. The "in" and "out" practice drives out other thoughts. The breathing for some reason is not sustainable for long. You either fall asleep or quit, then after a minute, try again.

This has not been approved by anyone but me.

   Tulsa  I have two suggestions.

1. Ambien 10 mg. or whatever the generic is. If your heart is strong, your dr. will approve even with other medical conditions.

2. Breathe in and count 1 in your head. Breathe out and count 2 in your head. Slowly and steady. One breath in.....Two breath out. One.......Two. You can not think and count too. ...Same principle as Calvinesq.

   RedWhiteBlue  Melatonin 5 or 10 mg. and GABA usually 500 mg. available in any Better Health stores or stores like it. GABA has helped me to the point where I actually have dreams which I have not had in years. That means you're getting a good deeper night sleep.I now take it faithfully, no side effects, etc.

   MeiDei  To go along w/the GABA & breathing mentioned above, here's a link to Dr. Mercola's article regarding insomnia as well as other concerns. Good luck

   BirdsNest  Condolences on the passing of your mother. That may be part of your problem sleeping. When Hagar passed I had a terrible time closing my eyes at night, and many nights just got up and avoided attempting to sleep. I mentioned it to my friend who is an EMT. She said when she has issues getting to sleep, she takes a 25mg Benydryl. It relaxes her just enough so she can drop off to sleep. I tried it and it works for me. Good luck.

   3XALADY  I've been bothered with leg and foot cramps for such a long time, have a new doctor here in MO and I asked him if there was anything for relief. I have a RX for Cyclobenzapr 5mg and it has done the trick. I take one around 8:30 or 9:00 and fall right asleep when I turn the light/TV off at 10:30. BTW, I am the former BETTYJEAN poster. BirdsNest also remember reading about your loss. So so sorry. I had a lunch group of around 20 ladies, usually 1516 attending lunch every month. From the end of May to the middle of July, three of us became widows. One of the DH's said his wife couldn't go with the group any more because all the husbands were dying. : )

   Alice  There is evidence from mediums that there is a review of one's life after physical death, and the review includes experiencing the effects of one's actions during life on others. If so, Fidel Castro has a long time to spend suffering before he is greeted at the entrance to the fiery pits.

   Balogreene  It has to be the Cubs, as the 91-yr old says, "Just one before I die". Feel the same way for my mom. Cleveland hasn't waited as long, this one is for all the old-folks in Chicago who have waited their entire lives.

I do trust fully that God is who he says He is and will be my "shield and buckler" and I will rest in "the secret place of the Most High".....I love Psalm 91.
