Ayurvedic Medicine For Deep Sleep

According to Ayurveda, chronic or excessive stress depletes Ojas which is said to be the physiological expression of consciousness, in charge of immunity, reproduction, beauty, and the overall health and well-being of the individual.

Ojas takes 30 days to be manufactured in the body, and is the result of numerous enzymatic actions that start with the digesting of food into the body’s lymph, blood, muscle, fat, bone, nerve and reproductive tissues. Once these tissues are successfully made and deemed healthy by the body, the final product, or essence, of all these tissues—ojas—is produced.

When ojas is depleted, either from stress, lack of sleep, bad food, poor digestion, excessive activity or inactivity, the body breaks down fast. Depleted ojas can manifest as low sex drive, insomnia, dry skin, stiff joints, accelerated aging and make a person disease prone.

Deep Sleep Herbal Milk

In Ayurveda, milk is the main vehicle through which certain herbs and spices can be used to rebuild depleted ojas.  Here is a good ayurvedic herbal medicine for a good and deep sleep.

You Will Need

  • 1 cup of Milk
  • 1 tbsp Chopped dates
  • 2 tsp Chopped almonds
  • 1 tbsp Coconut meat or flakes
  • ½ tsp Saffron (1/2 tsp)
  • 1-2 tsp Ghee
  • 1/8th tsp Cardamom
  • 1 tsp Raw Honey

Directions

  • Add all the ingredients to milk and bring it to boil slowly. You can add 1/8tsp of Shatavari or Ashwagandha to the milk. Once the milk, herbs, and spices are cooked. Turn off the flame, add raw honey.
  • Drink one cup of this hot milk each night for 3 months to rebuild ojas levels and support sleep patterns.
  • You may substitute milk with non-dairy milk such as almond, coconut or any other milk of your choice. Though you won’t get the benefits of the milk peptides, you’ll have a vehicle for the ojas-building foods and herbs, and some calming benefits from the warmth of the milk.

I haven't. But I'm leaning more toward natural remedies overall. Coconut oil has been a life saver for a lot of different ailments. I'm definitely going to try this.

i have insomnia sometimes too, because i'm not used to getting up early with this new job i got. 4 am is too early so it's hard for me to sleep. Plus with an enlarged uterus pushing on my bladder, if I'm even remotely feeling awake, i am up constantly having to pee and can never get a full restful night's sleep. :( i don't want to take sleeping pills like my husband does. i hate them. i need something natural.
