Waking up at overnight? Having trouble falling asleep? Don’t worry – you’re not alone. If this happens often, you’re suffering from insomnia, a sleeping disorder which manifests through the inability to fall or stay asleep overnight. Insomnia is the most common sleeping disorder and affects millions of people around the world. If you talk to your doctor about it, they will instantly prescribe sleeping pills. However, these pills are not a good option, as they can further disrupt your sleeping pattern and work only in the short-term.
The most common cause of insomnia is stress. When the body is under extreme stress, the frequent stress hormone production triggers a biochemical reaction in the body which can make you unable to fall and stay asleep. However, popping pills is not the solution for insomnia. It’s better to treat the problem naturally, and we have the perfect remedy for you.
Dr. Matt Stone (independent health researcher) says that the mixture works like a charm against insomnia. The idea of mixing sugar and salt seems crazy, but both sodium and glucose are needed by the body so it can balance hormones and keep the metabolism in function. Both sugar and salt charge our cells like batteries – proper sodium levels allow the cells to produce energy and enable proper cellular respiration, while the glucose is essentially fuel for our mitochondria. When combined, the mixture will restore your hormonal balance in your body and help you get some much-needed sleep.
Here’s how to prepare the so-called “sleeping” powder:
- 5 tablespoons cane sugar
- 1 tablespoon rapadura (unrefined cane juice)
- 2 teaspoons sea salt
Just mix the ingredients in a small bag and take a bit of the powder before going to bed. You can adjust the flavor to your liking, although the usual ratio is 1:5 salt to sugar. Keep the bag in your bedroom within reach and consume it every night before sleeping. Let the mixture dissolve under your tongue and you’ll be able to sleep like a baby!
