Avoid tea or coffee especially at night. Try to take lots of fresh juices and coconut water. This will really help your digestive system. Honey taken with water before going to bed is really soothing to the nerves. Personal hygiene will also help you out of insomnia. Foot bath with hot water for about 15/20 minutes followed with cold one before going to bed is really helpful. A spinal bath with cold water is also helpful. Do avoid high pillows as they causes stiffness and tension in the neck muscles and also impede the normal flow of blood to the head area. Nigh clothing should be light and soft.
