And forward I go with my ongoing battle with sleep deprivation! Well in truth my sleep cycle has been not so bad lately. That is for what I call my normal sleep cycle. Two weeks ago I actually slept about 5 hours straight every night for 7 nights. I honestly do not remember the last time that happened. For me that is a Godsend. And in the last few months, I have been sleeping close to 4 hours at a time.

I can hear you say OMG I would be a zombie with such little sleep. Well I have spent years waking up every 90 to 120 min. Trust me that is not a restorative sleep pattern at all. Sleeping for 4 hours straight has made a huge impact on my health because, for me, that is way more restorative.

 My new Catch 22

But these 4 hours blocks have sort of brought on a new set of problems though. If I wake up at 4 am it is a little late to take prescribed medication, especially on a weekday when the alarm clock will ring. What to do to get back to sleep but only for 2 or 3 hours more? That is when my research crossed paths with this sleepy dust recipe. I had a really good laugh after first reading about it and sleepy dust reviews. But I was desperate and gave this sleepy dust for insomnia recipe a shot.sleepy dust ingredients

The most crucial part of this recipe is TO USE UNPROCESSED SUGARS. No white sugar here. At first I only had the cane sugar and it worked well. It took a while to get a hold of Sucanat, or pure dried sugar cane juice (if in Canada I found it here). You want raw ingredients with their vitamins and minerals intact which will nourish the cells in the body.

So does sleepy dust work? It works! It is not a bulletproof cure for insomnia – if there was such a thing the word “insomnia” would be stripped of the dictionary – but I can definitely say I have seen an improvement: my mind is calmer and my body a bit more relaxed after the sugars and salts have dissolved from under my tongue. How on earth can this recipe work?

What is sleepy dust and How does it work?

If your 24 hour body clock – called circadian rhythms – is a bit out of whack, you may have certain hormone levels peaking at the wrong time. Often in the case of “middle of the night insomnia” it is the stress hormones that can peak at night. The body wakes up at this stress response, perhaps also a drop in blood sugar. This is where the sugar in the sleepy dust comes in to the rescue with a dose of fuel and the salt helps to vehicle the sugar throughout the body. The stress hormones calm back down and sleep can come much more easily now.
