Hello Friend,

I was talking to a friend of mine recently and they said how they had trouble sleeping at night.  Can you relate to this as well sometimes?

We are all a bit like a “bear” during the day if we haven’t had a good night sleep the night before.   So, we did a quick search of the internet for all natural sleep remedies and low and behold, “Honey and Milk” popped up as a great combination for a DIY sleep remedy health hack!.

We were so impressed with the results, so we thought we would share the information with you.

Did this Honey and Milk remedy work for you? What do you prefer to you use instead?  If you are lactose intolerant, what is a great alternative to use?

You can’t sleep , so you wake up every morning tired and sleepy?

Well don’t worry, because we have the right answer for you.

If you suffer from insomnia, then you should definitely try this home made mixture of milk and honey.

This is the most effective ancient sleep remedy. All you have to do is drink just one cup of this remedy before you go to sleep and you will fall asleep in less than 10 minutes.

People used honey and milk for centuries to make remedies for insomnia, even if you consume them separately, they are both extremely effective ingredients, but their effects are multiplied by a couple of times if they are combined and consumed together.

We can also mention that Honey is one of the sugary ingredients which cause a controlled increase in the amount of insulin being secreted, which also promotes tryptophan to be released into the brain.  So this compound tryptophan is being converted into serotonin which promotes a feeling of relaxation.  And the serotonin is usually converted to melatonin, a well-known sleep aid.

So if you understand this chemical pathway, then you can see why honey and milk are used to improve your sleep and to reduce insomnia.

Honey and Milk Magic Sleep Remedy

  • 6 ounces of milk (170 mls of milk)
  • 1 drop of vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of honey (5 grams)

Directions:

Pour the milk into a small saucepan and put it on heat.  Wait until it is warm, but not boiling.

Then remove it from the heat and pour it into the glass.

Then you need to add the vanilla and the honey.

Stir well and drink it slowly before you go to sleep.

Note: For people who are lactose intolerant, follow the same recipe, but replace the milk with a lactose free substitute, just like soy, rice or almond milk.

  1. What a cool post. I have never heard of this sleeping method, but I will definitely give it a try. I know about tryptophan and milk, but not where the honey comes into play.

    This sounds like just the natural mechanism we all need for sleep so we can quit relying on medications. One question: how do you feel when you wake up? Just curious as medications and over the counter drugs can leave you with a hangover feeling the next morning.
    Thanks for the good info.
