Terry (Hemet, California U.S.) on 02/21/2014: I was having a heck of a time getting sleep! I would toss and turn most of the night and I was very tired by morning. I have heard so many people that are now senior citizens claim that they can't sleep? So I know that I am not alone with this frustrating problem.
I learned this from my husband as he loves to read about health issues.
He told me to try this for insomnia:
1. Fill a pitcher or container full of clean water.
2. Take a fresh lemon and slice it across in a few slices.
3. Place the slices of lemon in the water and allow this to sit for awhile.
4. Throughout the day drink a few glasses for this lemon/water. I try to drink at least 5 or 6 glasses of the lemon water.
This helps me sleep like a baby! Don't give up if it doesn't work for a few days. Keep drinking this solution.
What the lemons do is Alkaline the water! My husband read that our drinking water is too acidity. He read that this solution is similar to using baking soda. This has helped me so much in getting sleep.
I hope it works for those with insomnia. It works for my husband, my sister in law, and it works for me!
Once more thing if you use sugar in this water the sugar will only make the water acid again. Please do not use sugar in it.
