Sleep is one of three pillars that are important for your health. You already know that other two are food and physical activity. In order to have a healthy life, we need quality sleep.

There are natural remedies that may solve problems with sleeping.

2.    Wild lettuce is effective against headaches, anxiety and joint pain. You can take between 30 and 120 milligrams of wild-lettuce supplement before going to bed. 
3.    Aromatherapy is another way that can help you sleep better. Lavender is an important aid for better sleep. This has been proved by many studies. You can use a spray with lavender (real lavender) and spritz it on your pillow before you go to bed. Even better is to buy a lavender-filled pillow.
4.    Melatonin controls your sleep. It also induces sleep. Some doctors claim that higher dosages are very effective. However, several studies have shown that lower dosages are even more effective. You should take between 0.3 and 0.5 milligrams before going to bed. Higher dosages may be toxic, so you should avoid them.  Also, high dosages may increase risk of depression and infertility.
