Chronic insomniaHello, I am looking for some assistance in relieving chronic insomnia which began as an infant. I have used OTC sleep aids over the last few years but have quit them due to fear of eventual liver damage.
I am a 37 year old woman in Washington State and my sleeplessness seems to occur at the end of each 90 minute sleep cycle. I typically wake up feeling overly alert and hot and needing to reposition. This happens all night. I feel like I am never in a restorative sleep. Finally towards daybreak, I fall asleep for a longer period of time but feel extremely tired upon waking. I do have history of depression amd lately am taking steps in my life to feel more fulfilled in hopes this helps with my irritability.

May I know what do you mean by "awake up overly alerted and hot and needing to reposition" ?
You can click my name and email me as well ..
♥ healer21 4 months agoWhat I mean is I am usually sweating and my mind alert and start immediately thinking. I'm not thinking anything in particular, my mind is just awake. I have to kick off the covers to cool my body down as well as change bodily position which I do a lot of until I finally fall back to sleep.

Stop coffee , chocolate, mint, oily, spicy and junk foods ... completely you have 3-5 organs working less than 50-60% .. at the same time .. and majorly due to diet ..
You lied a bit or mistakenly answered somethings during explaining your condition.
Sleeplessness and other problems are a consequence of this ..
Try Nat.sulph200c. (Liquid form) 4 drops only .. once only.. No more. Early morning before breakfast. In a disposable glass with some water in it. Stir well drink slowly. Don't use that disposable glass for anything else later on .. every medicine should be taken in a separate disposable glass.
After one day take a dose of silicea200c (liquid form)
4 drops only .. once only. At night after 2 hours of dinner .. or early morning. In a separate disposable cup with some water in it.
Don't place medicine near strong perfumes etc.. following all instructions carefully ..
Report after 3 days ..
♥ healer21 4 months agoThank you for your time and recommendations. Will post back after the three days of treatment. Only pellets are available to me in my location and therefore ordering the liquid forms online so it may be a week to two weeks before I respond.

Hello, I have completed both the Nat. Sulph and Silicea remedies and waited the 3 days. Today marks the 4th day. The pain I was experiencing on my right side of body has disappeared after a brief intensification between the Nat Sulph and Silicea. I have noticed most improvement after the Nat Sulph and not any noticeable differences after the Silicea. I am falling to sleep much easier but still waking throughout the night extremely hot, however, now I am waking with EXTREME hunger. I can only fall back to sleep after I eat only to awake again a couple of hours later with more hunger and heat. I have also noticed an improvement in my mood during the day in which I have more motivation despite being tired. Should I repeat the remedies, wait longer, or proceed with a different remedy?
Thank you for you time and guidance.
