Struggling to Sleep? A Magical Recipe ~ Alex Myles

I'm posting this because I know a lot of us have this challenge, especially when the energies get very intense. Here, I would like to clarify that it also depends on what type of energy is coming in as well as how our bodies react with that specific type of energy ~ some may have insomnia, some may sleep for hours on end.

I have not personally tried this ~ thankfully sleep has been good in recent days. Pink Himalayan Salt has become a favourite for many Lightworkers, and I can personally attest to its wonders. For those who do not take honey, I would recommend alternatives like Coconut Nectar or similar.

It it interesting to note that apart from promoting a low-salt diet, the "medical industry" is also now waging war against fructose (I still cannot get over how ridiculous this is), both components being recommended in this sleep remedy.

I often used to find it difficult to fall into a deep, restorative sleep and remain rested through the night.

Just the thought of going to bed could bring on mild anxiety, as I knew I would likely lie awake for hours drifting in and out of light sleep, but rarely reaching the highly sought after delta state. I would regularly wake up during the night alerted, often from high-stimuli dreams that just added to my anxious state.

Sleepless nights would be particularly common if I was enduring a stressful or anxious period, as even if I entered sleep, I would wake through the night and feel the adrenalin circulating through my body, without knowing why. I would then struggle to rebalance my hormone levels enough to drift back into a sleep.

I decided to research a little further and came a across a few biological and physiological reasons that explained why this was happening.

Disturbances in sleep are most often linked to biochemical reactions due to a high level of stress hormones that flush through our system between approximately 2 a.m. to 4 a.m. The spike in our hormones dramatically affects our ability to remain calm, which is why it interrupts our sleep.
I also found that I was lacking in sodium. I had believed that I should be consuming a low sodium diet, so I had reduced my salt intake at every opportunity. I didn’t realise that I was actually ingesting the wrong salts. I rectified this by reducing my intake of processed food which contain high table salt levels, and instead switched to natural unrefined salts, which I add to fresh-food meals during preparation.

Dr. Vitiello, director of the University of Washington in Seattle, carried out research that found low levels of sodium cause blood volume to decrease and the sympathetic nervous system responds by activating to compensate. The sympathetic nervous system activates adrenalin and triggers the fight or flight response that then makes it difficult to get to sleep, and also remain asleep.

Sleep had long been a nemesis of mine, that was until I started to make up a magical therapeutic little potion which consisted simply of honey and salt.
