Natural Sleep Remedies

Natural Sleep Remedies

Sometimes sleep can be hard to come by, and if you don’t want to use store-bought sleep aids, there are several natural remedies that you could try.

  • Cherries

Tart cherries or cherry juice contain tryoptophan, which is an essential amino acid that converts to serotonin, which then converts to melatonin. Melatonin helps maintain the sleep cycle by causing drowsiness and lowering body temperature. It works with the central nervous system to sync with our biological clocks.

  • Valerian root

The valerian root is used as a sedative and sleep aid. It is thought to work because it increases gamma aminobutryic acid (GABA), which helps regulate the action of nerve cells and has a calming effect. Valerian root can be brewed as a tea, or you can take it in capsules.

  • Chamomile

Chamomile has long been used as a sleep remedy. It is thought that chamomile relaxes your muscles because it contains a flavonoid called apigenin. Chamomile is usually brewed as a tea, and you can either get whole chamomile flowers or store-bought tea bags.

  • Magnesium

Magnesium plays a big role in the functioning of the GABA receptors. The GABA receptors are the primary neurotransmitters that calm your central nervous system. While GABA won’t make you drift off to sleep, you will have a harder time falling asleep without it. You can find magnesium tablets to take as a supplement if you aren’t getting enough in your diet, but make sure to consult with your doctor first.

  • Warm milk

Warm milk is the classic sleep remedy. While it might not make you sleepy on a chemical level, many people find it soothing and relaxing.

As always, make sure to consult your doctor before taking an supplements or starting any new regimens.

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.

It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.
Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
