Part of the great improvement in my health has included exercise. After being told to ‘stay down’ for over a year to heal the adrenals, it was hard to get back up! All of the adrenal fatigue (dang-near failure!) mess caused a lot of muscle atrophy. Getting back into exercising caused some serious pain – the atrophied areas had developed ‘adhesions’ and there were interesting lumps and bumps that hurt like crazy. That pain was tolerable (barely) during the day, but to try and sleep with the pain was nearly impossible some nights.
Enter ‘Knock Out’. 🙂 My new bff. This was part of a lesson for my herbal medicine and while I worked the lesson, I realized I could help myself out. I mixed up a blend that addressed my problems specifically and what do you know – it not only worked, but it worked GREAT. Because I ‘resist’ relaxation automatically (it’s just a thing I do), I made sure this would be able to overcome that tendency. Boy, does it ever.
Best sleep I’ve had in years. Consistently. I’m going to share my recipe and you can make your own or you may purchase this tea from me here
I use the ‘Simpler’ method to measure. A part is anything from a hand full to a teaspoon. If you choose to use a teaspoon as your ‘part’, then do so for the entire recipe. 🙂
1 part oats (not instant unless that’s all you can get)
2 parts Chamomile
1 part Hops flowers
1 part Skullcap
2 parts Lemon Balm
1 part California Poppy
Blend herbs together. The rate of usage is 1 teaspoon of dry tea per 1 cup of water. Infuse tea in hot water for a minimum of 10 minutes (15-20 is better), then drink 1/4 cup every half hour starting a couple hours before you want to be asleep. Yes, the entire cup may be consumed at once, but it will be a knock out.
