Natural Remedies for Insomnia – Sleeping Pills:

below are 3 natural remedies for insomnia that will have you sleeping better in no time at all. These 3 natural remedies for insomnia will prove that sleeping pills are only for dummies.

Natural Insomnia Remedies

1. One of the best natural insomnia remedies around is a warm bath with added herbal oil. Obviously, the bath oil can’t just be any common oil – it has to be a herbal oil which is known for it’s sleep inducing effects; I.E. Lavender, passionflower, Valerian, etc. The aroma from the oil will help you to relax and get comfortable. Combine that relaxation with the herbal oil’s inherent sleep inducing properties, and you’ll be ready for sleep within minutes rather than hours.

2. Another great herbal remedy for insomnia is deep massage. A massage will not only relax you by relieving tension and stress, but it will also help to put you in the right “mood” for sleep — a more comfortable “I’m 100% ready to go to bed” type of mood. A full body massage with herbal massage oils is best, but even a light shoulder rub is better than nothing at all.

3. Of all the natural remedies for insomnia, herbal tea combined with sound sleep tracks has to be the best. Why aren’t these remedies separate? Why are they combined and called one remedy? Simply because most people find it’s an effective one-two punch for dealing with insomnia quickly and effectively.

Basically, prepare a cup of your favorite insomnia herbal tea (chamomile, Valerian, passionflower, etc.) and head off to bed while drinking it slowly. Once the tea has been drunk, put in the sleep track CD/tape/mp3, turn it on, and then slide into bed. The tea will calm your body & nerves and induce a strong sleepiness in you, while the sound waves from the sleep track will try to get your brain on a more natural rhythm to help you sleep.

Hope this helps you . Thank you.

Sharon asks…

How many scientists actually study natural remedies?

I’m quite curious. I read about doctors and scientists talking shit about natural remedies, but how many of them actually study these natural remedies and medicines? Because usually, I hear about some other scientist that discovers that the product is a lot healthier than before mentioned. So, do scientists actually study these plants and such, before talking shit about them?

vti answers:

1) Some natural remedies do not actually contain the specified dosage, thus they should not be sold or consumed.

2) Some natural remedies have been studied and found ineffective

3) A few (a very small percentage) of natural remedies might work, according to tests done to date.

vti answers:

Hair loss is a metabolic disorder where hair starts thinning, falling, or disappearing. The papilla which is an upgrowth at the base of the follicle, actually produces hair when a special group of cells turn amino acids into keratin, a type of protein of which hair is made. The rate of production of these protein ‘building blocks’ determines hair growth. Hair loss is more common to men than to women.

Symptoms of Hair Loss

Following are the major hair loss symptoms:

1. Falling of hairs.
2. Thinning of hairs

Causes of Hair Loss

Following are the major hair loss causes:

1. Lack of vitamins (specially vitamin B6 and folic acid) in diet
2. Inadequate nutrition and improper diet
3. Stress, worry, anxiety, and sudden shock
4. Heredity factors
5. Prolonged Illness (like typhoid, syphilis, chronic cold, influenza, and anaemia)
6. Unclean condition of the scalp
7. Poor blood circulation

Natural Home Remedies for Hair Loss

Following are some of the effective home remedies for hair loss:

1. Boil one cup mustard oil with four tablespoon heena (mehendi) leaves. Filter it and keep it in a bottle. Message it on the bald patches regularly. It is very effective natural remedy for baldness.
2. Grind fenugreek seeds with water and apply on the head. Leave for at least 40 minutes before washing. Continue it for a month.
3. Do a vigorous rubbing of the scalp with fingers after washing the hair with cold water. It is also a good natural hair loss treatment.

5. Make a mixture of honey with egg yolk. Properly massage on the scalp and hairs. Leave for a 1/2 hour, then wash
