Insomnia: Apple Cider Vinegar
But let me turn things over to Christine...
I have/had this little book on apple cider vinegar that I placed somewhere (or misplaced), but it has a wonderful suggestion for insomnia.
You mix apple cider vinegar and honey (to taste). If you have trouble sleeping, you're supposed to take a teaspoon. If you're not asleep 1/2 hour later, you're supposed to take another teaspoon. I've had to do this a few times and never had to take more than two teaspoons before I was asleep.
Sounds weird, I know - but it works.

It seems like most people get less and less sleep these days and work longer and longer hours for fewer and fewer greenbacks. Such is life in 21st century America.
Well, Christine has this interesting little insomnia tip for sweet dreams, which, I think, comes originally via Paul Bragg's paperback on the wonders of apple cider vinegar.
I was tossing and turning the other night due to stressing out over a class I'm taking in college. I kept trying hard to fall asleep because I had to be up by 5 a.m. to get ready for work. I was getting cranky and decided to get up and clean the whole house!
My son was still up (11:30) and suggested that I take the vinegar/honey mixture. I'd forgotten all about it (I keep a honey bear container filled with the mixture). Well, I took the stuff and, sure enough, fell asleep.
I also mix vinegar and honey and put it in a cup of hot water... it's delicious, relaxing, and good for you.
When I read the apple cider vinegar recipe book I thought, "These people are nuts!" But it turns out that people have been drinking this "tea" for years.
Tell me this simple home remedy doesn't beat the tar out of some expensive prescription or over-the-counter drug whose side effects would probably make you feel worse than if you'd pulled an all-nighter.
Oh, if you don't like vinegar and would prefer an audio solution, try soft classical music... something from DeBussy's Nocturnes, for example. And be sure to click here to take a look at my Cat's Purr CD, which many people swear by as a great, non-drug solution for insomnia.
