Herbs

Valerian

Valerian is a common folk remedy used to cure insomnia. It’s a natural sedative, and it lowers your blood pressure.

 

You can take the herb in tea form. Just use 2 teaspoons of valerian to two cups of water. You can take it as a tincture. You can mix the tinture with water. Just follow the directions on the bottle. It’ll take 30 to 45 minutes for it to take effect.

 

Hops

Hops aren’t just good for beer. They can also put you to sleep. Actually, when hops were harvested by hand by workers, growers had problems with their workers falling asleep in the field. Since all you need to do is smell hops to sleep, you can make a satchel to use as a sleep aid. Just put two handfuls of hops in a thin cloth bag. You can use an old thin pillowcase. Add a few sprigs of lavender too. Lavender is also a good calming herb.

 

Place your hops and lavender satchel under your head with your sleep. It should have you drifting off to dreamland in no time.

 

Chamomile

Chamomile is a mild sleep aid. It will encourage drowsiness. You can buy chamomile tea at most stores. Just drink a cup before bedtime.

Supplementing your diet with these vitamins will help you get to sleep faster and increase the quality of your sleep. Here are some other supplements that act as natural remedies for sleep.

 

Melatonin

Melatonin is the chemical naturally produced in your brain to make you sleepy. You can buy melatonin in pill form and take it as a sleep aid. It takes about 30 minutes to work. You should take a low amount, less than 1 mg. This remedy works on people who are not sleeping well because their melatonin levels are low. We use this with my son who has Asperger’s syndrome. People with Autistic Spectrum Disorders naturally have low melatonin levels.

 

5-HTP

This sleep aid helps increase the quality of your sleep. It increases the amount of time you’re in deep REM sleep. When you wake up in the morning you feel well-rested and you don’t get tired during the day. It takes about a half-hour to work. You can also buy this at health food stores.
