update on the sleep issues and hubby

Hubby was on the sleep tea for about a week and a half. The days he'd forget (or I forgot to make it) he'd sleep poorly and snore again. So we kept doing it until this past weekend and he said he wanted to try it without. So far he's doing well. He's got a sinus thing going on which is causing him to feel crappy, but otherwise when he sleeps, he says he sleeps like a dead person.

A side note: do not use too much sage, because it can cause odd things if you are sensitive. I have a typical sage plant which is very very mild and do not measure exactly how much I used so a couple times I used too much and it made him feel odd. He said he could wake up to pee, but felt 'out of it'.

Things going on with me is that I am still feeling really good about myself. This seems to be a lasting breakthrough and I am excited. I think I am going to switch docs when I find the number of my friend's doc and see what he says about my Rt3 and such. I still have several heart palps a day, but the usual fatigue isn't so overwhelming. I am still taking homeopathic cell salts when I remember and I think I shall start back up on the supplements. Maybe not so much dessicated adrenal one since that may have been the one to give me tummy aches.

Sleep issues can be easily resolved!

Here's a tea recipe I just found out that helps regulate REM sleep. This is esp. important for those that seem to never get sleep at night (like my hubby). It should only take a week of drinking this every night to set things right in your brain. I believe this is an old Native American recipe, but I'm not for sure. My best friend told me about this and one particular client who used this after not 'sleeping' for 20 years. After a week of this tea, he was able to sleep fully!

2 TBSP rosemary
1 tsp sage
bit of peppermint/lemon balm/catmint

Drink before bed. My hubby is on night #3 and so far we've had 3 nights of NO SNORING! I cannot sleep anymore because I keep wondering if he died! LOL! So far he says he only wakes up once or twice instead of his usual hourly wakings. No tossing & turning and his moods the next day are more peaceful!


The sage is what helps the brain to calm down and get the sleep hormones regulated so make sure you don't 'overdose' on the sage. You can use dried or fresh, I believe.

Another recipe I recently read about:

lemon balm,
catmint (catnip)

No particular measurements. If you make this one very strong, you will be asleep very quickly as well. I'm not sure if this one restores function like the one above.

So, if you decide to try one of these, post your results!
