How Do I Get Better Sleep Naturally?

One of the first benefits people notice from a constitutional homeopathic remedy is improved sleep–even if that was not the reason for seeking treatment!

Here are a couple of other ways to improve sleep aside from homeopathy:

The Brazilian Toe Massage.  It takes about 15 minutes, brings all the energy down through the meridians, and really helps calm the mind and body.  It’s useful day or night, but I definitely make it part of my kids’ nighttime routine.  And if I catch myself thinking in the middle of the night after being woken by an outside source, I use this technique to calm my mind and bring sleep back sooner.

So … you can do it physically or energetically.  To do it energetically, visualize it–imagine the receiver’s toes, hold your fingers as though you are actually doing the treatment for the person, and go through each of the steps as though your fingers really were on the person’s toes.  I don’t know if it works on animals!

[I learned this technique from Sandy Wand, a Donna Eden Energy Medicine Practitioner–well, expert, really.]

Lavender essential oil.  Lavender is well-known for its soothing [and cleansing] effect.  Take advantage of it by putting a drop on the crown of your head before heading to bed.  [This tip thanks to Cynthia Slon.]  And Mountain Rose Herbs has a nice article explaining the different types of lavender essential oil they offer.
