Dr Oz: Natural Insomnia Cures

Now that you know your Insomnia Type, Dr. Oz wants to help you get a better night’s sleep, so he enlisted the help of Dr. Michael Breus to provide natural cures for every sleep problem!

Dr Oz: Fall Asleep Faster Listening to “Pink Noise”

If you are not able to fall asleep at night, Dr. Michael Breus has the solution to help you relax and get the rest you so desperately need.

Dr Michael Breus recommends eating a banana with the peeling to help you fall asleep at night.

  • Easier to listen to than white noise
  • Helps tune the brain to a more relaxed state
  • Sounds like a heavy rain storm
  • Works better than prescription medication for some people
  • Set timer for 20-30 minutes

Dr Oz: Banana with Peel Sleep Remedy

If you tend to wake up in the middle of the night, Dr. Breus has a rather unusual natural method to help you stay asleep.

Banana with the Peel – Bananas are loaded with magnesium, which has been shown to relax us, but the key is to include the peel. Since the peel is pretty bitter in taste, here is Dr. Breus’s recommendation to make it a little easier to swallow.

  • Cut off ends of banana and boil in water for 10 minutes
  • Eat 1 hour before bedtime
  • Cut into chunks and sprinkle with cinnamon (optional)

Comments to Dr Oz: Natural Insomnia Cures, Light Box Therapy & “Pink” Noise

  1. How do I download pink nouse

  2. I have trouble falling to sleep at night, I wake up in the middle of the night and can not fall back to sleep. What type am I?

  3. How long should I expose myself to the bright light after 7pm. I am excited to try this as I seem to go to bed too early when it is dark out and then I wake up an hour or two earlier than I should in the morning.

  4. BRENDA – Try iTunes or Amazon to find Pink Noise downloads. Here is one for 89 cents: http://www.amazon.com/Pink-Noise-2-Hours/dp/B007FSR8DM/?tag=wellbuzz-20

    KARE – It sounds like you are a combination of two or all three types. Experiment with each of the remedies you think applies to you to find something that works.

    BEV – Use the light for about 20 minutes each evening.

  5. I saw that they drank the water from the boiled banana too. Does anybody remember this part of the show too?

  6. Yes, Juli. You can drink the water like a cup of tea and/or eat the boiled banana flesh and peel.

  7. What about pesticides on the banana peel? Shouldn’t you have recommended organic bananas only. That peel could be highly toxic.
