Ayurvedic Treatment of Insomnia

Dietary Remedies

Warm milk

Drinking a cup of warm milk before going to bed helps bring on a peaceful sleep. (Skip this if you are suffering from lactose intolerance.) You can drink plain milk if you prefer, but the following suggestions will make it more delicious as well as more effective.

bulletAdd a pinch (up to 1/8 teaspoon) of nutmeg.
bulletAdd some crushed almonds (blanched is better), a pinch of nutmeg, and a pinch of cardamom. You can prepare the almonds in a nut grinder or coffee grinder.
bulletTry garlic milk. Mix together 1 cup milk, 1/4 cup water, and 1 clove of fresh, chopped garlic. Boil gently until 1 cup of liquid remains.

Cherries

Cherries are good for mental fatigue and stress, both of which can contribute to insomnia. Eating 10 to 20 cherries daily may help relieve these conditions and help you sleep.

Tomato Juice

Drink 1 cup of tomato juice with 2 teaspoons natural sugar and 2 pinches of nutmeg. Drink the juice between four and five in the afternoon; have dinner between six and seven. That evening you should get a sound sleep.
