Over the thousands of years that humans have inhabited this planet there have been many remedies that try to cure insomnia. Home remedy cures for insomnia have often proved to be questionable ... some are possibly effective insomnia cures while the rest are harmful.
It's been reported that John Lennon was a chronic insomniac ... of course we don't recommend his insomnia treatment of choice as seen in the picture on the left.
Some of the most common insomnia cures minus any side effects that have been passed down from generation to generation are warm milk therapy - that is gulping down a glass of warm milk during bed time and dozing off for the rest of the night.
The next in line is the onion cure - cutting an onion and putting it in a jar, and opening the lid of the jar to sniff at it just before making it to bed. For me personally the very thought of smelling a raw onion at night is so repulsive that it will be enough to keep me lying awake for the rest of the night.
Of course ... there's always listening to scratchy Johnny Mathis records to put you in the mood for some sleepy time.
