Do you ever take natural health supplements instead of going for the drug of choice? I generally never go for drugs without trying an alternative natural solution first. Exceptions equal the drugs I find necessary to take for cramps. Other than that, if my muscles ache I will take magnesium, if I feel panic I will try Rescue Remedy, if I begin to get a cold, I will take vitamin C.
I want to sleep on the airplane! Gravol does not work for me! I do not know why it doesn’t work, but it doesn’t. I took two gravol back in January when I was coming back from Hawaii and never fell asleep. How is this possible? It is a drug after all.
So yesterday, as I mentioned in some earlier post, I went to the natural health store in my neighbourhood. I talked to the woman working there and she mentioned how her friend tried this one supplement and slept the entire way from here to Dubai (much farther flight than mine!). So I thought I would give it a try. She told me that if I tried it the next couple of nights and it didn’t work, I could return it. What was there to lose?!
Last night I took the recommended dose, 2 tablets. I was out like a light in one hour, exactly the time she told me it would take to kick in. This product works! I was feeling a little anxious tonight so I only took half the dose and I am feeling a lot more calm now. I am sleepy but not ready to pass out.
The best part about this is that it tastes like candy. Yay! I supplement that works and tastes great! I had the best sleep last night than I have had in months with so many freaking thoughts going through my mind. And another cool thing about it is that I remembered my dreams so vividly! Weird, eh? I did not want to wake up but when I did, I was refreshed not groggy.
The product is called Tranquil Sleep and here it is:
Hopefully it will work for me on the flight as well! But I’ll worry about that later. Excuse me while I… (yawn)…fall fast asleep…
