Most health-conscious people steer clear of sleeping pills because of concerns about side effects and possible addiction. But, ah, the convenience…Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a little something you could take to soothe you gently into sleepiness? Actually,sac gucci, there is.

For older children and those over 65, start with low-strength preparations and increase strength if necessary.
1.Valerian
When the elders of thirteenth-century Hamelin, Germany, refused to pay an itinerant flute player for ridding the town of rats, the Pied Piper used his music – and the aroma of valerian – to hypnotize the town’s children and lure them away. Valerian has been used as a sedative/tranquilizer ever since. In one experiment, researchers gave 128 people with insomnia either 400 milligrams of valerian root extract or an inactive placebo. Those who took the placebo showed no change in sleep quality, but the herb users showed significant sleep improvement, with no morning grogginess. When using commercial preparations,Chaussures Chanel, follow package directions. With the bulb herb, use two teaspoons of powdered root per cup of boiling water. Steep 10 to 15 minutes. Drink one cup before bed. Taste: earthy and unpleasant; add sugar, honey or lemon or mix it with an herbal beverage tea.

Arab physicians began recommending balm, also known as lemon balm, for anxiety during the tenth century. Charlemagne was so impressed with its sedative/tranquilizing effects that he ordered it grown in all the medicinal herb gardens in his vast European realm. Modern researchers have discovered that balm oil has tranquilizing properties. In Germany, where the herbal medicine is more mainstream than it is in the United States, balm is widely used as a tranquilizer and sleep aid. When using commercial preparations, follow package directions. With the bulb herb, use two teaspoons of dried leaves per cup of boiling water. Steep 10 to 20 minutes. Drink one cup before bed.
