Sleep’s Secret Ingredient: Food? Overcoming Insomnia with Ancient Wisdom


We’ve all been there – staring up at the ceiling, twisting and turning in bed, yearning for that elusive thing called ‘sleep’. Most of us know that feeling of settling into bed only to be haunted by countless dreams or waking up multiple times during the night. The burning question remains: How do we unlock the mystery of a good night’s sleep?

It’s not uncommon for people to turn to medication to tackle insomnia; however, many prescriptions can cause unwanted side effects and dependence. While some herbal medications can balance our Qi (a fundamental concept in Chinese medicine that translates to ‘life energy’) and harmonize the yin and yang in our bodies, it’s essential to remember that pills aren’t a substitute for genuine, rejuvenating sleep. In the stillness of sleep, we find our serenity and connect with the universe’s vast energy.

Interestingly, in our world where we’re rarely short of food or drink, it’s sleep that eludes many. I personally grappled with the enigma of sleep when I was a teen under lots of stress. Lost in my thoughts, even my dreams often echoed my daytime drama.

Unlocking Ancient Wisdom

It was during one of these periods of contemplation that I stumbled upon an age-old remedy shared by a revered folk healer. This healer had a unique approach – curing ailments with food. An approach deeply rooted in the idea that the essence of Traditional Chinese Medicine can be mirrored by our daily diets.

So, how does one dine their way to dreamland? The Ancient Wisdom tailors insomnia treatments to its root cause. Let’s explore some remedies:

1. Connecting the Heart & Kidney

If you find it hard to drift off, it might be a discord between your heart and kidney. A simple remedy is sipping on some saltwater before heading to bed. The saltiness fosters a bond between these organs.

2. Deepening Light Sleep with Sourness

For those who are in a superficial slumber, introducing a sour element can be a game-changer. Boiling sour berries such as hawthorn in water, such as Karviva Whole Plant Juice, has proven beneficial, especially for those with a thin pulse.

3. Combatting Excess Water for Restful Sleep

Feeling drained yet restless? A coarse pulse might mean you have too much water in your system. A specially made whole grain smoothie, such as Karviva Wellness Smoothie, might just be the tonic you need.

4. Sleep Deeper with Spices

An overload of dreams points towards liver stagnation. A warm drink made by boiling water with spices like cinnamon bark can tone down those vivid dreams. Adding some whole grains to your diet can also help you fall into that deep phase of sleep. This is also one of the principles on which Karviva Wellness Smoothies are formulated.

Embracing the Magic of Real Food
