Simple Sleep Aid


1 Tbl coconut oil

1/4 tsp raw honey

1/8 tsp sea salt


There are often physiological and biochemical components to the inability to fall asleep or to fall back asleep in the early morning hours. This simple remedy addresses these issues.

Before bed, mix the three ingredients and ingest. It tastes great, a little like a salted caramel candy.  But it acts to produce a steady stream of energy all night to prevent sleep problems.

The coconut oil supplies healthy fats which give your body energy throughout the night. This prevents blood glucose spikes which can lead to insomnia.

The honey provides a steady dose of glycogen to your brain. If glycogen is unavailable, the body kicks into “adrenal mode” instead. Cortisol and adrenaline are produced as a back-up source of energy for the brain. These stress hormones keep you awake. Your body needs cortisol levels to be low in order to fall asleep.

Salt decreases the stress hormone (cortisol and adrenaline) levels as well and decreases the secretion of them into the blood stream. Cortisol spikes can wake you up in the wee hours of the morning.

Give this remedy a try. A good night’s sleep can make all the difference in helping you have a good day!
