  • "I sooo enjoyed Kim's class. He took a dry insipid subject and made it very very interesting. He is a wonderful teacher. I enjoyed it a lot and I will have to review it a few times to catch all the little pearls he shared. Thank you again for the wonderful class. Sincerely, Cristina."

Back To School Insomnia

With school just a few days away, getting the kids to bed early may be a challenge or just a bit of adjusting. Whether they are excited or anxious to get back to school, sleep patterns will likely have to be implemented to get a routine again. 

For some, this adjustment may mean being restless in the evening rather than feeling tired, or tossing and turning in bed. (or sleeping on the way to school) Until the sleep cycle sets in, there are a few safe and gentle remedies that can help.

When determining which remedy to try, it is helpful to ask these questions:

What is causing the sleeplessness? What is the emotional state of the person while they are trying to get to sleep? Is the person’s mind overactive?

If insomnia is a more serious case with your little one, please consult a professional homeopath or healthcare practitioner.

Coffea: overactivity of the mind prevents sleep (there is no marked irritability or anxiety).

Arsenicum: sleepless because of anxiety and fears; driven out of bed because of anxiety or ‘too tired’ to sleep; restless before and during sleep

Nux Vomica (Colubrina): irritability, hypersensitivity to slight noise or distraction; insomnia after mental strain or excessive study; waking at 3 or 4am with ideas crowding the mind; can’t return to sleep

Pulsatilla: kept awake by one specific repeated thought; weeping because of the inability to go to sleep

Ignatia: insomnia from grief

Chamomilla: Insomnia due to irritability or physical pains or those dependent on sedatives

Passiflora: generic homeopathic medicine for insomnia. Indicated for those with hyperactive mind. Best taken in 1x or 3x potencies.
