    This is a great post on insomnia, but I have one question for you and it’s about the picture of melatonin that you posted. I’ve never taken melatonin until last week when I fell very ill and my sleep schedule was almost completely backwards from what it is normally. So I bought myself a bottle and took two pills as recommended and slept like a baby. This was great because when I was back at work I felt great having slept, but now a week later I’m finding that I am not tired at my normal bedtime at all without it. Have I become dependent on melatonin? How natural is it if it says not to take for more than seven days?

      Hi Lindsey,
      Melatonin is a naturally occurring neurohormone. So far not a single documented case of melatonin addiction. Lack of euphoric effect makes melatonin a safer alternative to other sleeping aids. 7 days of taking melatonin are enough to get into a regular sleep cycle.

    Hi Jelena, thank you for this great post.

    I have terrible sleep patterns, and I usually get no more than about 4 hours in one go, I stay up late, work for too long in front of the computer, take little exercise, drink tea and coffee…

    I often end up having to have an hours nap in the evening because I rarely want to go to sleep when I should.

    I figure I should really start making more effort as some days I do feel crazy tired when I wake up and some of your tips could definitely help me.

    Great post. I never new about drinking honey with milk before bed to help insomnia. I will have to try that. I was wondering what your thoughts on turmeric were? I have heard drinking it in a glass of milk at night was good for your health and helps you sleep. I was thinking of trying it. Thanks for your article.

    I sometimes can’t sleep for hours and I use caffeine a lot during my workout days. But I drink it 10 hours before I go to sleep. Does caffeine cause it? Because sometimes I can’t sleep days, which I don’t consume any caffeine, too. This is why I have no idea about whether I have some kind of insomnia or not.

    Hi Lindsey,
    My wife always said she had a hard time sleeping at night I started to look for ways to help so she could have a better sleep. I am going to try Lavender Essential Oil and see if she can wind down with a nice bath. I alway said just count sheep your mind will forget the worries and get tired But I guess that is easyer said then tried.
