Waking up in the middle of the night can be quite unpleasant and frustrating. According to scientists, about 42% of all people in the USA experience this issue.
Namely, the main reason for this is undoubtedly everyday stress, since as we sleep, there is a strong biochemical reaction going on between stress hormones in the body.
Fortunately, there is a simple, but really effective remedy which is extremely helpful for the ones who experience insomnia frequently. It includes salt and sugar only, but it provides fantastic effects.
Both of these ingredients are necessary for the body and our metabolism, as they are in charge of the regulation of stress hormones and aid the energy generation by cells.
They act as cell chargers, as glucose is needed for the mitochondria, while the healthy balance of sodium in the intercellular fluids results in body energy and proper respiration.
Moreover, sugar sends a message to the body that it does not need to release stress hormones anymore, and salt maintains a homeostatic state, followed by a controlled function of the adrenaline. Moreover, you should already know that sugar does not make a person hyperactive.
This is how to prepare your own, homemade “sleeping dust” and treat insomnia:
- 2 tbs. Himalayan sea salt
- 2 tbs. brown sugar
- 5 tbs. honey
- Mix all the ingredients in a plastic bag.
- Mix well until you get a homogenous mixture.
- Put 1 tbs. of this mixture under your tongue – before going to sleep, or when you wake up during the night.
