Foods That Naturally Fight These 8 Common Insomnia Causes

Improve not only your sleep, but your overall health.


By Martin Reed


The types of food we eat can strongly influence not only our sleep, but our overall health and well-being

Today I am going to identify 8 common insomnia causes and describe the foods that will naturally help alleviate each condition. 

Insomnia Cause: Stress 

Milk and whole grains both contain tryptophan – a building block for serotonin. 

Insomnia Cause: Anxiety 

You may want to try herbal teas such as chamomile or even valerian. Additionally, wild lettuce has a calming effect that can reduce headache pain, joint pain and even restless leg syndrome

Insomnia Cause: Gout 

8oz of water mixed with half a teaspoon of baking soda can soothe gout pain. 

Insomnia Cause: Acid Reflux 

12oz of water mixed with 2 tablespoons of organic apple cider vinegar can reduce the effects of acid reflux and reduce the effects of arthritis and fibromyalgia. Raw honey (high in potassium) can also help alkalize the body, easing discomfort from acid reflux. 

Insomnia Cause: Heartburn 

Slices of apple dipped in honey can help reduce the discomfort associated with heartburn. 

Insomnia Cause: Arthritis 

As well as the organic apple cider vinegar mix mentioned above, 8oz of water mixed with cream of tartar can also help to alkalize the body, soothing arthritis pain, fibromyalgia and headaches. 

Insomnia Cause: Fibromyalgia 

In addition to the cream of tartar mix mentioned above, pineapple slices can relieve join stiffness, reduce inflammation and ease aching muscles due to the fruit’s high concentration of the digestive enzyme, bromelain. 

Insomnia Cause: Headaches 

As mentioned above, you can reduce headache pain with the water/cream of tartar mix and by consuming wild lettuce.
