When I cannot sleep I get back up and make a cup of cocoa, made with a tsp. cocoa, and 1/2 tsp. sugar with milk in a large mug, about 1 and 1/2 cups, along with 2 whole wheat toast and jam. It does put me to sleep after I urinate some of the liquid out.

Calcium constricts while magnesium is a relaxer. Take a warm bath with Epson Salts, magnesium and that should help you sleep. We need magnesium to help break down calcium but this very important mineral seems to be neglected.

I want to share this remedy with people can't sleep. It works for me to drink a hot glass of milk with fresh oregano leaves before go to the bed. Add sugar or honey. Taste good !! S.V.B. from Costa Rica.

"Sleepy" teas do seem to help as does regular aerobic exersize, only one glass of wine and lighter dinner meals. Ultimately, women "of a certain age" all seem to have sleep issues. My doctor claims it is a common denominator and has prescribed "trazadone" which I use very carefully. 25 mg taken at the last moment before sleep will get me 5-6 hrs and on a good night 7. I resorted to meds only after 10yrs of gradually eroding sleep.

Everybody is different but what has been working for me for sometime is !/2 a bowl of raisin bran in a few ounces of soy milk. Works if I am not sleepy at bedtime or if I wake after one or more hours of original sleep. I just have to cut back on daily calories to allow for this now nightly ritual.
