I was skeptical, but it's now two nights later and both hubby and I have slept really well by eating honey before bedtime.
I read about this on Facebook, and it said to take two tablespoons of raw, unprocessed honey and mix it with a teaspoon of salt and then eat a dab of it before bedtime.
My honey was local, so I’m “assuming” it was unprocessed, but now that I’ve read more about it, unprocessed is always the preferred method, but you can try supermarket honey. They warn you that supermarket honey is not always 100% honey and it’s been pasteurized, therefore killing off the good stuff.
I don’t know why the salt is necessary, and haven’t been able to find out why I need to add it, so I’m going to try discontinuing that, it doesn’t taste bad with the salt, but I would rather just eat the honey by itself. From what I’m reading suggestions are to eat between a teaspoon to a tablespoon, so if any of you try this, just play with it and see what works for you. So far so good for both of us, I only woke up once last night, normally I’m awake 5-6 times a night. Here’s an article that explains how honey effects the liver enabling us to sleep better.
Does this really help us sleep or is it a fluke? There's a lot of positive information about this online and only time will tell whether we continue to get a good night’s sleep after eating honey at bedtime. Worst case scenario, we’ve ingested something yummy. :)
It’s worth a try, and worth passing along the information… ~ Jan
