What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy stems from the belief that your body can cure certain ailments, with the help of additional supplements like plants and minerals. It's believed that by using homeopathic treatments you can trigger your body's natural defenses that can help address the health issue.
Homeopathy is used to treat several types of health issues, including allergies, migraines, and even sleep deprivation.
3 Homeopathic Sleep Remedies for Exhausted Moms
Have you tried over-the-counter sleep medications with little to no success? Here are 3 popular homeopathic sleep remedies you should try out to address your sleep problems and improve your health and wellness.
Arguably the most popular of sleep remedies, melatonin supplements help your body produce melatonin, which tells your brain when it's time to sleep. Many people use them to improve daytime sleeping and address sleep issues caused by jet lag and other scenarios where your melatonin cycle is disrupted.
It's believed to not only reduce the time it takes to fall asleep but improve the overall amount of sleep time.
Magnesium is a mineral found within the body that plays an important role with overall brain function and heart health. It's also believed to potentially ease the mind and body, thus making it easier for you to fall asleep. This may be because of its ability to regulate the production of melatonin in your body.
People who suffer from sleep issues and insomnia often have lower levels of magnesium in their bodies. And those who take magnesium, report higher quantity and quality of their sleep.
Most magnesium supplements also contain melatonin and zinc, however, so it's hard to tell if the improved sleep is also because of those additional ingredients.
The third sleep remedy on the list is the valerian root. It's been used for many years to treat health issues like anxiety and menopause. And it's one of the most of commonly used sleep herbal supplements in the United States and Europe.
People who take these herbs report a perceived improvement of their sleep quality. Although, the research behind this is still somewhat inconsistent. It's worth trying out if you experience little success with other sleep remedies.
