Unobvious tips for insomnia

Folk remedies

Doctors of the Caucasus advise drinking two glasses of fresh goat’s milk at night, although cow’s milk is also suitable. And if it is also “night”, i.e. milked until morning, this is the best option! It is believed that the one who drinks such milk is more active during the day than others.

You can dissolve a teaspoon of honey with lemon juice in a glass of water and drink it in small sips. You can also apply lavender oil to your temples before going to bed. In addition, drop three to five drops of this oil on a piece of sugar and eat it before going to bed.

Onions can also help. If you eat one or two slices before going to bed, you will have a sound sleep, but this recipe is for those who sleep exclusively alone and who do not have stomach problems. Or for those who want to sleep alone.

You can also wash your feet with hot water before going to bed, or completely immerse yourself in a hot bath – this procedure will calm the nervous system, relieve fatigue and improve sleep. You can also rinse your head with motherwort infusion.

For supporters of Eastern methods, shiatsu is suitable – it affects biologically active points. In the case of insomnia, light stroking or tapping is performed in the evening, without causing unpleasant sensations on all points. The time for a certain point is a little more than three seconds; the massage is performed three times with an interval of three minutes. But do not agree to massage in the presence of inflammatory processes, neoplasms in the places of massage, and also if the body is prone to the formation of hematomas.

Medicines for this disease

Self-medication of sleep disorders with medicinal methods is undesirable and even dangerous. All sleeping pills, when used incorrectly, cause complications – lethargy, decreased concentration and productivity, memory impairment, etc., up to coma. And if you are a driver or perform other work that requires no less attention, it can be dangerous not only for you. In addition, these drugs in some cases lead to addiction. But unfortunately, in order to be cheerful, many people take sleeping pills without a doctor’s prescription. Many drugs are sold without a prescription, so people think it’s easier to buy a package of sleeping pills and not worry.

But there are a number of symptoms, the appearance of which requires immediate discontinuation of medication:

– hallucinations;

– bradycardia (slow heartbeat);

– visual impairment;

– jaundice;

– dry mouth;

– nervousness;

– allergy.

In addition, sleeping pills are not recommended for pregnant women and during breastfeeding. But this does not mean that sleeping pills bring only harm. But to choose a safe option, it is better to consult a doctor.

Without a prescription, you can take drugs with Modafinil (Modalert, Modavigil). Thanks to them, you will feel active and energetic and will support the quality of life and your efficiency while you wait for the doctor’s appointment. Also, thanks to these drugs, insomnia can disappear completely, because during the day you will not doze off, and therefore in the evening you will have a great desire to fall asleep.
