  • There is this guide, a sleeping cure that in some way works. I started off going through insomnia at a young age. I’ve experimented with many treatment methods however none of them works not until finally I learned regarding this method. I managed to get a better sleep at this point that I had implemented the program continuously without fail. Good luck, you will get the results, find it on Google. Name of the guide is Zoey Sυnodoz

  • Thanks so much I really going to try to do all these good advice that you gave us in the video I subscribed already and God bless you thank you

  • Namaste

    As per ancient Indian belief and practise, one must go to sleep early and get up 1.5 hours before sunrise.

    The time before sunrise called Brahma muhurta is good for all activities like study, meditation etc. which are positive in nature.


  • I drink coffee and pass right out.. Now espresso is a different story.. I drink wine or vodka while laying in bed. As long as I’m not drunk I wake up just fine.. You cannot go to bed hungry so what can you eat then? Geez..

  • If you have trouble concentrating, sleeping or relaxing this channel is really very good, it helped me a lot, it is also very visual, take a look Perfect Harmony Music ������

  • BOTTOM LINE is……….
    SLEEP!! who the hell eats
    & then go to sleep?!!

    To DIGEST especially #MEAT!!!!!

  • My friend’s dad recommended me naturekindness .com This has completely changed my life. My sleep cycle has improved so much and I feel energetic when I wake up.

  • There’s a company that mixes all useful herbs for sleep into one. My mom uses it and she really loves it. I don’t know all the details but you can find it at

  • This is BS when it comes to real insomnia. Had it since I was born and remember it continuously since the age of 3 (yes I do remember being 3) Had insomnia long before silly expressions like ‘sleep hygiene’ are banded about as a catch all phrase to throw at patients (cause you will catch them out with one or another of the things involved) Had insomnia before we even had a TV and decades before personal pc’s, iphones and laptops, when reading was the only pre bedtime pastime from 7pm on, when eating plain boring food was done at 5pm, years before I tasted anything with caffeine in it. Still have insomnia today and am over the age of 60. Doctors and anyone else for that matter tend to get angry when you present them with this stuff on account of it being an affront to their knowledge and lack of answers so they then throw the ‘sleep hygiene’ routine at you with a big dose of contempt. Also I have exercised early in the day for 3 decades now, dont eat heavy nor late and minimal caffeine. Have done Hypnotherapy, psychology, put my name down for a sleep clinic but waited two years and they canceled the appointment and sent me a printed sheet spelling out their usual routine for patients which turned out to be nothing other than sleep deprivation techniques which in fact made it worse, eg if stay up after 1am I will then stay awake all night and most of the next night. Some of us are stuck with it for life, a miserable one at that.

  • Warm milk? This video same as all the other ones touting sleep hygeine to treat insomnia. Doesnt help people with chronic insomnia. We need help!

  • People should not eat carbs.. limit carbs to a minimal.. eat no carb vegetables.. meat.. etc.. Carbs are basically addiction.. and breaks down into alcohol sugar which makes you hungry and stores as fat.

Sure if you run 5 miles a day you should eat some good complex carbs before you run… for energy.. but if like most Americans.. you sit at a desk all day and come home to dinner and watch TV the rest of the night.. you need to just quit carbs.

  • There are several factors in quitting booze including eg motivation and help from friends.
    One resource I discovered which succeeds in merging these is the Adoette drink plan (check it out on google) definately the most helpful plan that I have ever seen.
    look at the site and great reviews.

  • We should not eat 3 hours before bed since it literally stops our trillions of cells from regenerating FACT> it’s hard too not to eat 3 hour’s before bed but if you do it you will see extremely dramatic results.

  • I used to stay up till 10 am and then either finally go to sleep or stay up the whole day. Now I’m on a strict rule that I have to go to sleep at a certain time but it’s now 3 hours past that time… ����

  • An evening cocktail that includes beans, whole grains, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, asparagus, cauliflower and onions just before bed will produce enough hydrogen, carbon dioxide, and methane gas to subdue a horse… or a nagging spouse. PS… make sure you wear an oxygen mask.

  • I’m the audience for this video. I discovered all of these things on my own, but if you’re a slow digester and/or a sensitive person, these are things to keep in mind. Your body is wired differently than the “average“ person. If you’re not sure, just experiment on yourself.

    All you lose is a night of restful sleep, and hopefully you learn your lesson. I don’t drink anymore, but when I did it occasionally, and did so late at night, I would wake up at two or three in the morning after having nightmares. Cheese did the same to me.

  • how about, you easily fall asleep, but when the time you wake up at anytime, i find it hard to sleep again �� that’s why i got 4-6 hours sleep.

  • I’ve been deprived of a good rest ever since I reached my adult life. This sleeping program has demonstrated me good results even on my first 7 days of usage.

  • sounds crazy but after losing my daughter, i sleept SO SO much, or mostly stayed in bed and felt so down, after awhile my top back neck pain went from tense and very annoying to, burning, so here’s the crazy part,, i purchased a lot of meth for pipe, it reset me, i stayed awake days, saving enough meth to keep awake, it gives you insight, mainly when afew days awake, but never use long term, treat the crystals right, bless them with intentions, meth worked for me as a tool, don’t use it much, but when u want to kill yourself because the emotional state has made one feel DEAD and all u can do is sleep, or lay in bed, no motivation. As a kick start for motivation to say” jump start your ass and brain loq, meth works for me any way

  • Is sleeping on 9 PM and waking 8 AM good?

    If i drink warm milk before bed, for a few days.. i need to throw up.
    Any kind of milk, really.

  • Great vid thanks, but how can you back up the claim that reading a book helps fall asleep? Reading can stimulate the brain which may not help.

  • Have you eaten any of these foods? Do you have insomnia or know anyone with that problem? If you enjoyed this video, please give it a like and share it with your friends! ��

  • You see I drink alot of alcohol, am a very unhealthy eater, I’ll eat burgers, then string cheese, baked beans, store bought deviled eggs, tortillas with hot salsa, and ice cream before bed, sometimes an entire cheesecake. Usually doesn’t bother me unless I eat a cheesecake. What it DOES bother, are roommates. My farts and dumplings are so bad, they’re legendary. You have no idea how bad my ass is. It will clear a warehouse, shop, or any outdoor venue, even an amusement park line. I’m getting fat. I’m in the blue flame club. I have no girlfriend… People think something crawled up my ass and died. Better out than in? Not for you! I can produce more methane and hydrogen sulfide than 5 cows. Constant walking farts. However, my sleep schedule isn’t affected unless I eat a cheesecake. Half is fine, Not a whole one.

  • Eat what you want up until about 7pm. Then stop eating or drinking anything but water until noon the next day. This is “intermittent fasting” and helps type 2 diabetics like me. Look it up on WebMD.

  • There’s a company in the USA and Canada that provides all natural sleep formula. My friend uses them and it has helped him a lot. I have just started using it. Its been 3 weeks and I can feel the difference. For people messaging me, it is from and I’m in the USA. Hope that helps.

  • Turkey has tryptophan in it so it might be good snack before bed. Turmeric milk is nice too, I might even try it with honey, thanks Bestie.

  • I guess it all depends on the person, I could drink 10 cups of coffee and go to sleep without issue, might wake to exhaust and go back to sleep. Not an 8 hour person, take naps and make things happen. Many people need that “8” hour sleep..

  • I couldn’t disagree more with all of these except for dairy! Unless you want to wake up with a bad headache from H2S gas from farting all night….

  • Dark chocolate makes me sleepy. I eat dark chocolate at night. I don’t eat dark chocolate in the day time specially when I am at work.Dark chocolate relaxes me.I eat lot of milk chocolate when I am sad or when I want to sleep.

As I was desperate I ended up giving it a try and slept like a log for 6-7 hours, the most I had slept in years. Had to pull my head in a very long way!

  • I would like to know what it means “before going to sleep” is it like 5 mins before going to sleep, 20 mins, 1 hour even? Good video!! Could have been more specific:)

  • Actually in another video,i saw that before sleep to drink grapefruit juice with ginger helps loosing weight and I sleep well and dont have any problems…..and i also could drink coffee.doesnt affect me

  • Sleep and Rest are two different activity. People who do hard physical jobs like mason, carpenter drivers they need 6 to 8 hours sleep. But whereas sedentary lifestyle job doers involved more mental activities needs rest for 5 hours and sleep for 2 to 3 hours. This is the fact.!

  • I read different, Broccoli can counter Estrone and is best eaten before going to sleep. This is because Testosterone is high in the mornings but lower in the nights.

  • Tryptophan is NOT all it’s cracked up to be.
    Mythbusters have proven this. It’s the AMOUNT of food you consume that ultimately makes you sleepy at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

  • ▼▼ Watch our new video on “Causes for Insomnia & How to Improve Sleep Quality” ▼▼

  • All the stuff he mentioned that will keep you awake I fall asleep on I’ve always been told I was made backwards but I do believe it now cuz coffee puts me to sleep anything high in caffeine will put me to sleep I used to take 2 Vivarin and drink coffee and fall asleep

  • Saw a Science Channel thing saying that it’s actually a carb crash which makes you sleepy after a Thanksgiving meal. I don’t remember the title of the show, dammit. But, according to them, there isn’t that much more tryptophan in turkey than in chicken and people don’t fall out after eating chicken, as much. It kind of makes sense. If you really think about it, almost everything in a typical Thanksgiving dinner except the turkey is loaded with carbs. Stuffing, potatoes, gravy (usually made with flour or starch), cranberry sauce, etc. And this is before dessert. Tryptophan isn’t innocent in all of this but it’s not the main culprit as was once thought. It’s more of a carb/sugar crash that puts you on the couch drooling on your ugly holiday sweater. ��

  • Im 11 years old and ive not been able to sleep well for years so i said to my perants i should try them foods and it worked tysm!!

  • My friend’s dad recommended me naturekindness .com This has completely changed my life. My sleep cycle has improved so much and I feel energetic when I wake up.

  • Magnesium and a B-Complex vitamin supplement work well to promote not just sleep but restful sleep where you don’t wake up 5 times. Drink a good amount of water but not too much. The Kirkland B-Complex sold by Costco is far superior to more easily available versions.

  • the only one correct on here is cherry juice or cherries.,..It has the same melatonin naturally as a pill…only food in world to do that…also high in potassium…as well as 6x antioxidents as an orange for 2 tsps concentrate juice…it does really tied, like repeated yawns IN BED…after I got tired and laid down at 4 am when I woke up at 2am…was taking it as trial for gout…helped that too…ordered 2 more bottles when I woke up.

  • I USED work 16 hours EVERY day for the rest of my life, I sleep only 4hrs until now. I don’t take any medication for sleep. Help!!!

  • Not slept properly since birth…..ask my family. I’m now 52 and still don’t sleep!! Surprise, surprise food has NOTHING to do with foods since I’ve been able to choose my own foods!!
