Homeopathy is a 200-year-old medical system that uses small doses of various substances to stimulate self-healing processes. Homeopathy selects substances by matching a patient’s symptoms with symptoms produced by these substances in healthy individuals. Goal is to provide the body with a substance the immune system is “missing” so the body can heal.

Here are my favorite 5 medicines:
1) Coffee cruda – (Main remedy) – Mental excitement and nervous stimulation that keep a person from sleeping. Thoughts preventing sleep can be happy or distressing. The person may be looking forward to something that will happen in the morning, but feels stressed and exhausted as the night wears on. This remedy can help if overuse of caffeine is the cause.

2) Ignatia (after emotions) – If insomnia is caused by emotional upset (grief or loss, a disappointment in love, a shock, or even an argument). As the person tries to fall asleep, the arms and legs may twitch or itch. If sleep arrives, it is usually light, with jerking of the legs and arms, or long and troubling nightmares.

3) Kali phosphoricum (nervous fatigue) – After overworking and mental strain but still having trouble falling asleep

4) Nux vomica (after over-indulgence) – People who have insomnia after over-indulgence in stimulants, food, and drink—or after overexertion, either physically or mentally

5) Arnica (physical and muscular fatigue)

6) Gelsemium (hyperemotional) – Insomnia due to apprehension, fear or getting bad news

7) Zincum – restless leg syndrome

Melatonin – helps create quality sleep –

Start 1 mg at bed and increase up to 3-5mg. Make sure you get a reliable brand at a reliable store. It is a natural hormone and cancer patients often take 20 mg at night. Many take Melatonin nightly as a anti- aging hormone. Everyone is different so need to find amount your body needs. Melatonin resets sleep cycles, forces one into REM sleep and will maintain quality sleep even if fewer hours in rest. Great for jet lag or travel and can start a few days before
until a few days after.


Bone Broth

Can Improve Sleep Quality – It does this by decreasing core body temperature and increasing cutaneous blood flow.Cooler body temp means deeper sleep. One of my go-to “sleep hacks” is a big mug of bone broth about an hour before bed. It always knocks me out (in a good, non-narcotic way). And according to research, I’m not making this up or suffering from placebo. Human studies show that 3 grams of glycine taken before bed increases the quality of your sleep and reduces daytime sleepiness following sleep restriction. Sipping bone broth before bed provides a bioavailable source of glycine, helping us achieve deeper, more restorative sleep at night.
