Sleep better and conquer insomnia with these 10 home remedies from your favorite foods

Sleep better and conquer insomnia with these 10 home remedies from your favorite foods      

Insomnia is caused by a wide range of ailments, such as joint and muscle pain, restless legs, anxiety, fear, acid reflux, and pain from chronic disease. Something as common as drinking too much coffee late in the day, or staying up too late and getting a second wind can contribute to sleeplessness. Easy-to-make home remedies from foods in your pantry or fridge may be just the solution you’re looking for to help you fall asleep and get back to sleep if you awaken during the night.

Sleep better with tasty foods and home remedies

1. Toast and warm milk (organic or raw milk, please) help relieve stress and promote better sleep. Studies have shown that drinking warm milk releases melatonin — the sleep hormone — as well as endorphins to relax you and encourage sleep. A small amount of complex carbohydrates such as whole grain toast or cereal will fill your stomach, relieving hunger pains at bedtime, and cure insomnia. Whole grains release tryptophan, a precursor to seratonin production — the calming brain chemical. This is also a great snack to eat during the night if you awaken and can’t get back to sleep.
2. Two tablespoons of organic apple cider vinegar mixed with 10 to 12 ounces of water relieves burning from acid reflux that may prevent sleep. Additionally, arthritis and fibromyalgia pain may lessen or disappear after alkalizing with this drink.
3. Mix half a teaspoon of baking soda with eight ounces of water and drink before bedtime as a sleep aid and soothe gout pain.
4. Raw honey, high in potassium and other nutrients, helps to alkalize the body and nourish the brain, causing relaxation and sleep. It relieves acid reflux and will help you get back to sleep if you awaken early. Drizzle some on whole grain toast with a glass of warm milk for the perfect bedtime snack to sleep better.
5. Eat apple slices dipped in raw honey to relieve heartburn, fill your stomach, and relax before sleep.
6. Relieve arthritis, fibromyalgia and headache pain that may interfere with sleep by drinking a mixture of cream of tartar and water before bed. Add half a teaspoon of cream of tartar to eight ounces of water, stir and drink. The body naturally becomes more acidic at night, and this drink helps alkalize and reduce pain. Additionally, if you’re anxious, nervous or having difficulties breathing, a glass of this mixture should calm you down and allow better sleep.
7. If fibromyalgia or other muscularskeletal pains cause insomnia, eat several slices of pineapple before bed to sleep better. Pineapple contains the digestive enzyme bromelain that relieves stiffness and muscle aches, and reduces inflammation.
8. Calcium and magnesium promote sleep. Eat a snack before bed that’s high in calcium and magnesium, such as whole grain crackers with raw milk cheese, warm milk, yogurt, kefir, almonds, sesame seeds, Brazil nuts, or cashews, and black strap molasses. Sleep better after a green smoothie including kale, collards or dandelion greens with yogurt and honey for a cooling bedtime snack during summer.
9. Herbal teas such as those made with chamomile or Valerian root can help relieve insomnia and promote better sleep; however, too much of either of these herbs can actually do just the opposite and cause agitation, anxiety, irritability and insomnia.
10. Wild lettuce helps relieve headaches, anxiety and joint pain that may interfere with a good night’s sleep. It has a calming effect that relieves restlessness and anxiety and may even help soothe restless leg syndrome.

4 Ways to Combine Honey and Cinnamon to Lose Weight

4 Ways to Combine Honey and Cinnamon to Lose Weight

This is not a magic cure to help you lose weight and must be taken in conjunction with healthy eating, exercise and hydration; however, if you are serious about shedding unwanted pounds, you should consider using the combination of honey and cinnamon as part of your weight loss regimen. Honey is rich in enzymes and antioxidants and has been proven to boost the metabolism, while cinnamon has also been proven to help the body burn calories more efficiently and can also have a positive impact on blood sugar and cholesterol levels. To make this drink, add ½ tsp of cinnamon to a cup of hot water, let it cool, then add a teaspoon of honey; take as directed below.
In the Morning
Imbibing this in the morning is a great way to get your body started on the right track for the day, especially if you take it right as you get up in the morning then wait about 30 minutes before eating. This will help to curb your appetite and the cinnamon will begin to rev up your metabolism and help your body burn calories more efficiently throughout the day. You will also likely notice an improvement in your energy levels.

Between Meals
If you have ever been on a diet before, you know that one of the times when it is easiest to cheat is when you get hungry between meals. This can be especially difficult if you are at work, where you can be surrounded by unhealthy choices from vending machines or food courts. Taking this honey-Syour diet.

Before a Workout
It may sound strange to do this before a workout, but this cinnamon-honey blend can actually make that workout more effective by giving you the energy that you need to put the effort into your exercise and really get a benefit from it. Also, the cinnamon in combination with exercise will give an even stronger boost to your metabolism and make the workout more effective.

Before Bedtime
Apart from the time between meals, the other dangerous time of day for dieters is the one between dinner and bedtime, when it is easy to give into hunger cravings and raid the refrigerator or pantry. However, this cinnamon-honey drink can also help you at this crucial time of day, since it will suppress your appetite somewhat and also help your body digest things more efficiently while you sleep.

So take advantage of the healthful benefits of cinnamon and honey. When combined, they offer a natural way to curb your appetite, boost your metabolism and make your weight loss plan more likely to be successful. They also provide you with a wealth of nutrients that are great for your overall health. It’s a win-win situation.

Big Pharma's greed for profits, not lack of funding, delaying Ebola treatment development

Big Pharma's greed for profits, not lack of funding, delaying Ebola treatment development

At the heart of the Ebola crisis -- in which nearly 5,000 people have already died in West Africa -- is one word that frequently appears in the media: funding. (1) Without enough funding, research and development regarding treatment plans don't come easy. Without enough funding, food and other resources can't get to the ill in a timely manner.

Sure, there are experimental Ebola vaccines being tested, but lack of funding is the major issue that's putting the world at a standstill, while the sick become sicker as they wait for the powers that be to come up with proper financial resources.

Well, at least that's what Big Pharma wants people to believe.

Head of WHO comes down hard on Big Pharma greed

It turns out that funding is not necessarily what is delaying the development of Ebola treatments after all.

Rather, it's Big Pharma greed, and Dr. Margaret Chan, the director-general of the World Health Organization (WHO), has no qualms about saying that money-hungry drug companies are responsible for the slow-moving Ebola treatment efforts. (1) "A profit-driven industry does not invest in products for markets that cannot pay," she said during a recent conference in West Africa. "WHO has been trying to make this issue visible for ages. Now people can see for themselves." (2)

Her comment speaks to the fact that Ebola didn't just start appearing on the radar screen over the past year or so. In fact, it's been around since 1976, when it was discovered in Zaire (now known as the Democratic Republic of Congo). However, Chan explains that, because the disease was confined to impoverished areas in Africa, the development of a vaccine was basically considered to be moot. (2) Now that it's become more widespread (translation: affecting those who reside and work in cities that aren't poor), there is an incentive to take the disease more seriously.

No time for complacency or playing a numbers game

Chan's comment also comes on the heels of yet another physician who died in Sierra Leone, the fifth local doctor there to succumb to Ebola. That death reinforces the mounting severity of the disease, cases of which WHO estimates are significantly higher than what's being reported; in Liberia, for example, WHO estimates that the actual number of Ebola cases is about 2.5 higher than reported numbers. In Guinea, it is thought to be 1.5 times higher. (3)

Sadly, there are those that continue to turn a blind eye at the desperate need to act with the urgency that is necessary to fight Ebola and more effectively tend to those affected. Chan is adamant about this, saying that WHO's arguments about the overall decline in public healthcare "have fallen on deaf ears for decades" and are now "out there with consequences that all the world can see, every day, on prime-time TV news." (2)

The Ebola crisis, Chan says, "is the most severe acute public health emergency seen in modern times." (2)
The "70-70-60" plan is hoped to be put in place by December 1, 2014, a plan whereby at least 70 percent of known Ebola cases in West Africa will be isolated, followed by a safe burial of no fewer than 70 percent of people who ultimately die. A 60-day deadline has been established as part of this plan, representing the time frame between when it is put into motion and when it should be realized. (3)
