$5 Treatments for Insomnia

I was watching Dr Oz’s five dollar Friday the other day and he had proven natural treatments for insomnia so I thought I’d share it them with you. They’re all very simple, and worth a try to reduce anxiety and help you relax. Here they are – in no particular order:

1 – Listen to the sound of a crackling fireplace – according to his guest, you can download this sound for about 99 cents.

2 – Put an ice pack under your pillow case – at the top between the case and your face. Your body sends off a lot of heat at night and with all the covers on you may be getting to hot, which is waking you up during the night. The ice pack will cool you off, and is very refreshing.

3 – A nice warm tea drink might also do the trick. Get some Chamomile tea and mix 2 tsp Liquid Melatonin into the tea – drink before you go to bed to help you relax.

4 – One of my favorites is to have a glass of wine. There are a lot of thoughts spinning through your head all the time, which is probably the reason you’re looking for how to treat insomnia. A glass of wine slows the brain down so thoughts don’t bang around so quickly. It helps you be less anxious and relax faster. It’s a very nice natural sleep aid!

My other favorite way to relax is by listening to brainwave entrainment CD’s. These actually serve two functions, they help me relax, AND they help me be more productive. While they cost more than $5.00, I have been very happy with my results and have NEVER had problems falling asleep after listening the Brain Ev Cd’s.

So there you have it. More than one treatment for insomnia that costs $5.00 or less! Thanks Dr. Oz!

Anxiety Insomnia Causes and Cures

Often times your stress levels can increase due to situations that are happening at the current time. Suddenly you can’t sleep and may have anxiety insomnia due to circumstances beyond your control. For example, anxiety insomnia can be caused by traumatic events, sudden illness or injury, of loss of a loved one. Many times as these situations resolve themselves, your insomnia will go away. If you’re fortunate, you have just had a case of short-term insomnia which will go away as your situation resolves.

However, others have had anxiety insomnia for years and can’t figure out why, in this case, you may have chronic insomnia and are wondering how to treat insomnia. Studies have shown that up to 30% of adults living in the United States have some kind of insomnia during their lifetime, and in 10% of these cases, the person has chronic insomnia. Unfortunately, 35% of people with chronic insomnia may have inherited it and also have a family history of sleep disorders.

Anxiety insomnia is often included in the chronic insomnia area, which includes the symptoms of:

  • Having problems falling asleep or staying asleep
  • Waking up often during the night
  • Waking up too early in the Morning
  • Getting Poor quality sleep for a month or more

While it may appear at first that you suffer from anxiety insomnia, there are a few more causes you should look into including:

  • Melatonin deficiency in the body
  • Immune System Problems
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • Depression or bipolar disorders

Treatment of chronic insomnia is usually via two forms. If you think you might be short on Melatonin because you just don’t get sleepy at night, there are various natural insomnia drugs that can be used to replace melatonin deficiencies.

There are also Brain Entrainment programs that can be used, as well as cognitive behavioral therapy to help you relax and be less anxious. It often takes a combination of natural insomnia drugs and behavioral techniques to find substantial improvement in sleep. The good news is that between these two methods, 80% of people with anxiety insomnia have reported results in as few as four weeks.
