- Do you know that if you stay up later than 11 pm you are robbing your gallbladder and liver from proper service.
- If you get up during the night, you will lose 40 minutes each time to serve your designated organs (gallbladder, liver and Lungs). These 3 organs can be repaired only during a state of deep sleep.
- Avoid eating less than 2 hours before sleep. The food will remain in your stomach for too long and rot until you get up.
- If you are a light sleeper, do not drink coffee, or especially tea containing caffeine – for a minimum of 3 hours before going to bed. Slow releasing caffeine in tea takes 3 hours to reach maximum effect.
- Drink your last glass of water or cup of herbal tea, no less than 1 hour before going to bed.
- Do not fall asleep in front of the TV.
- Try not leave any electrical appliances ON in your bedroom after going to bed, including power points, mobile phone, computer, iPad, etc. (use mechanical alarm clock if you are a light sleeper).
- If you struggle with going to sleep, make up a cup of warmed milk with honey and take 1 caps of 5HTP (Tryptophan +) and sip slowly.
- Alternatively, cook up 2 x flat teaspoons of poppy seeds with a teaspoon of chamomile tea, add honey and sip it slowly, one hour before bed.
