We all know that the secret to a happy life is a good night's sleep. There's no better feeling than waking up from a full night of solid, undisturbed slumber.
The only issue is, getting a decent nights sleep is often easier said than done, with most of us finding ourselves only getting in a couple of hours sleep each night. Instead of gracefully drifting off to sleep, a lot of us will toss and turn for hours before finally nodding off. Not fun.
But what if we told you that a potential miracle cure had been discovered? A new cream has been formulated, and people are claiming that it sends them off to sleep in under a minute... Yeah, this is big news. Form an orderly queue, everyone. This is going to sell fast.
Getting to sleep at night can be tricky business.As much as we'd love to instantly zonk out, the reality is that drifting off to sleep can take a lot longer than we'd please.
Insomnia is more common than you'd think.

Though insomnia doesn't have to last forever.

But how easy is it to find a cure?There is no exact cure for insomnia as it is heavily dependent on someone's sleeping habits and patterns. Some outlandish methods and techniques have been tested in the past, however...
People have tried all sorts of weird hacks to get some sleep.The French used to eat an awful lot of fried lettuce, as they believed that the green stuff was a cure for insomnia. Consuming raw onions directly before sleep was thought to be a remedy, also. I'll take no sleep, thanks.
And there were some more spiritual methods...The famous Victorian writer, Charles Dickens, believed that pointing his bed Northward was the best cure for his insomnia. So, if you find yourself tossing and turning all night, reposition yourself to sleep facing the North. We're not making any promises, though...
Long story short, people are desperate for an effective and natural remedy.

Many doctors have advised against pharmaceutical medication.Taking sleeping pills over a long period of time increases the risk of dependency on the drug so, in the last few years, more natural methods and remedies have been favored over pharmaceutical ones.
