The daily recommended night sleep is eight hours, but the fact is that people usually sleep between 6 and 7 hours. And often they wake up tired. You would not think that missing just an hour or two of sleep can have big impact on our health.
The human body needs eight hours of sleep because this is the time needed to completely recharge the system. Many people reach for caffeine, thinking it can help them in when they didn’t sleep enough, but they are wrong. Caffeine can only provide short, temporary feeling of energy and once the effects are over you will feel even worse.
Avoiding the computer and not watching TV at least one hour before bedtime can be very helpful. When we watch TV or when we work on the computer, our brain is alerted and once we are finished, our body needs some time to calm down before we fall asleep.
Luckily, there is a completely natural remedy that can help in cases of sleep deprivation. The best part is that most of us have it in the household. What is the secret behind this natural remedy? The Himalayan sea salt.
Himalayan Pink Salt is also good for migraine headaches, it can support the adrenal glands in their effort to fight off disease and they can even support weight loss.
What is even more interesting is that Himalayan salt can also fight depression because it can affect the levels of serotonin. Finally, this salt stabilizes the levels of melatonin and this hormone is crucial for a good night’s sleep.
Just make combination of five Tsp. of organic raw honey and one Tsp.?of pink Himalayan sea salt in a glass container (jar). Before bedtime, put a small quantity of this mixture right under the tongue. Try it for a few days and see how much better you sleep.
