a pinch of salt will help you get a good night's sleep

I was recently given a book, Your Body's Many Cries For Water, by F. Batmanghelidj, M.D.

In the book it says, and I copied the following paragraph out of the book...

"Try drinking a glass of water and then putting a pinch of salt on your tongue. My personal observation and others have shown that one begins to fall asleep within a few minutes. In my estimation this combination alters the electrical discharge in the brain an induces sleep. Remember not to touch the palate with the salt. It may cause irritation. A cup of yogurt at night before going to sleep weill also help. It works as you have taken a sleeping pill."

What I as Angelina do is have a small glass of water and a little salt shaker on my night stand and when I have trouble sleeping I reach for my small glass of water and drink "some" of it and put a pinch of salt on the tip of my tongue. As soon as I lay back down I find myself going right to sleep. It is absolutely amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good luck to each of you!


A "special" thanks to Sandman
