Mystics in the Himalayas treat just about everything with what grows around them and with the power of their focus. If you are interested in them, you may read about them in my new book - The Babaji Affair - Herbal medicines are fantastic because they are natural food with few side affects, if any. The pity with those who run to the chemist instead of the garden or forest is that they miss out on an easy cure that may be lying around their home and would keep them safe from side affects.
For years now I faced a difficulty, waking up in the middle of the night and not getting a good sleep after that. This is especially so on days spent on a desk with no physical exercise, and that happens every time there is book writing or something like that. However, I discovered that a cup of light tea helps me to get a second round of good sleep. Recently I pondered on the matter and thought it might be the sugar and not the tea, so I tried a spoonful of sugar in water instead. Wonder of wonder, that works even better. Apparently some sugar is required for good deep sleep. An aunt of mine, with a similar problem took what her doc advised until her entire body became puffy and swollen like a balloon. Fortunately she came down for a visit to my home for a few days, and suspecting the cause as a side effect of her medicine, I was able to guide her away from it and the swelling. Ironically this aunt has a doctorate in Botany and has been a Professor of that at Delhi University.
