Also could you tell me when a doctor tells you that you have something because they saw it on a cats Scan. Then they do the scpoe and tell you there is nothing there the doctor called it a zenker’s.

    Hope you can help me out.

    Valarian tea I believe was the tea that helped you sleep at night.
    Check this out on his site.

    Be aware that valerian is safe and has been used for centuries to promote a calm disposition and restful sleep, but some people have vivid dreams/nightmares when they take it. Use it only when you need it. Try chamomille tea as an alternative.
