Do you ever feel like you’re NOT tired?
It seems like everyone these days is running on less and less sleep. The brighter our screens, the longer we use our phones, the earlier we get up…the less rested we feel.
At the same time, doctors won’t hesitate to load you down with sleeping pills, which we all know, might be a highly addictive benzodiazepine.
A lot of people want a fast-acting solution. But did you know that lavender, valerian root, chamomile and kava, among other herbal remedies, can be just as effective as a benzodiazepine? Yup! It’s true.
When you’re in recovery, it’s likely that you have a hard time sleeping at first. It takes time to adjust to a new circadian rhythm, unaffected by drugs or alcohol. But these solutions can really help, even if it takes some time to adjust.
