Stop Insomia Now

On May 25, 2007, Tony Wright made headlines by staying awake for 11 days and nights - beating the previous Guinness World Record. However, the authors of the Guinness Book of Records have since removed this title because of the associated health risks of insomnia.

Indeed, a growing body of research indicates that America's sleep problems have reached epidemic proportions and may be the country's No. 1 health problem. From the looks of it, Wright probably belongs to the 47 million Americans who are chronically sleep deprived.

Nothing is more frustrating than not being able to sleep. You toss and turn and your mind is endlessly racing as the events of the day constantly fill your head. Worse, background noises keep you wide awake at night.

Insomnia can be a symptom of several physical disorders, although for most of us it's the result of tension, stress and anxiety. The more anxious we get about our insomnia, the worse it gets. Fortunately, the treatment of insomnia can be simple. Often, it's just a matter of finding out what's keeping you awake. This will help you deal with the problem directly. By making a few changes in your sleeping habits, you can beat insomnia. But if your doctor calls you a "healthy" insomniac, then it's time for more action. Here's what to do courtesy of Dromias, the safe and natural way to a good night's sleep:

Avoid or limit your use of caffeine ( e.g. coffee, tea, sodas, chocolate, etc.), decongestants, alcohol and tobacco. Exercise more often, but don't do it a few hours before going to bed. Learn to reduce or manage stress in your life. Don't lie in bed worrying about things. Set aside another time just for worrying. For example, spend 30 minutes after dinner writing down what's worrying you and what you can do about it. Eat a light snack before going to bed. Don't eat too much before bedtime. A glass of warm milk or some cheese and crackers may be all you need. Don't nap during the day if it makes your insomnia worse. Sleeping pills like Dromias taken once a night can help you visit dreamland fast. Dromias contains a proprietary blend of natural ingredients such as valerian, passionflower and lemon balm that scientific research shows can help fight sleep disorders, restlessness and anxiety, relax your muscles, and improve sleep quality.

Unlike early products, today's sleeping pills don't carry the risks of dependence and lethal overdoses. Dromias in particular is not habit-forming. Nor is it a prescription drug so you can use it with confidence. This remarkable product is a non-synthetic, non-hormonal supplement that you can take anytime and can even be mailed directly to your home or office.

Some sleep experts believe that keeping a bottle of sleeping pills in the medicine cabinet can be helpful for chronic insomniacs because the knowledge that a pill is available provides a sense of security and minimizes the fear of insomnia. If so, be sure to keep a pack of Dromias handy since you'll never know when you need it.
