Insomnia Cures

Insomnia Solution Fleece.jpg

Stress leads to poor and little sleep, which leads in turn to mental illness. 

The Tension Sheet alleviates stress,


my Insomnia Cure improves sleep patterns, and an alternative cure to the Kadir-Buxton Method, is the

In Summary


1) Breath in salt water from an oil burner to simulate soporific effect the seaside

2) Vacuum the bed regularly

3) Read something boring before bed

4) Pelvic floor exercise so you don't wake for toilet

5) Put Vicks on your chest to improve breathing

6) Exercise if you have restless foot syndrome

Insomnia can be cured with the use of an electric oil burning lamp heating household salt in water. (A candle heated oil burning lamp is not recommended for safety reasons.) The burner should be switched on in the bedroom half an hour before bedtime. The sleep that is attained is solid and refreshing. I got the idea one sleepless night. I remembered having a conversation with a World War 1 sailor. I had asked him what the point of having a night shift during a battle was when no one could sleep due to the noise. He replied that he put his dirty socks under his pillow at night and this somehow made him sleep better. I thought of the possible ingredients of a dirty sock that could keep him sleep in battle and decided to experiment with salt first. I was soon asleep, and for a long time. I have found that on the first night one is asleep for a long time as you are catching up on lack of sleep. Several more nights of breathing in artificial sea air and sleep patterns begin to return to normal, and a loud alarm clock is recommended. This explains why people sleep sounder at the coast when the wind is blowing in from the sea.

If this sounds too dangerous, then heat the salt water during the day in order to simulate a walk by the sea-side. I have recently purchased a candle powered oil burner big enough to run for eight hours from Amazon UK, and candles that can burn this long are also available. 

Sir Paul McCartney once used this invention in a modified Davy lamp, and cured his insane horse with it. It would be possible for electricians to build a more modern form of Davy lamp for use in larger areas. It has been found that good sleep improves the speed at which all patients recover, so this invention would help in the treatment of physical ailments as well as mental. If in pain, then you can add some Lavender too. Some diabetics have been noted for being short tempered, a good sleep is enough to treat this symptom.


In New Scientist No2696 Emma Young in 'Sleep Well, Stay Sane' investigates the idea that insanity could be caused by poor sleep patterns rather than insanity causing poor sleep patterns. The evidence is around that turns conventional wisdom of psychiatrists on their heads. She says: "The good news is that sleep treatments could help or even cure some of these patients."

 The article goes on to say that Doctors studying psychiatric disorders noticed long ago that erratic sleep was somehow connected. Adults with depression, for instance, are five times as likely as the average person to have difficulty breathing when asleep, while between a quarter and a half of children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) suffer from sleep complaints.

 The evidence for poor sleep being the cause of mental illness goes back a long way. In 1987 Patricia Chang and colleagues at John Hopkins University in Baltimore reported a study of 1053 male medical students and studied them for 34 years after graduation. Those that reported suffering from insomnia were twice as likely to develop depression as those with no trouble sleeping. Likewise, there are four categories of severity of sleep apnoea, and Paul Peppard and his team at the University of Wisconsin-Madison found that each increase in a person's category doubled their chances of getting depression. Although my experiment numbers are small, I concur with Emma Young and find that both mental illness can be cured, and also the amount of sleep that sleep apnoea suffers receive is improved with this method.

According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, about 40 million people in the United States suffer from chronic long-term sleep disorders each year and an additional 20 million people experience occasional sleep problems. This is a staggering total of 19.75% of the population and significant inroads into this figure can be made with a simple invention.

Latest research reveals that having good sleep patterns improves the looks of people, and perhaps this reason will lead more people to use my Insomnia Cure, and thus improve their mental health as well.

David Levine wrote: 'Treating Sleep Improves Psychiatric Symptoms'in 'Scientific American.' In it he writes. "A study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention strengthens that connection. The CDC analysed the medical records of nearly 10,000 American adults with sleep apnoea. Men diagnosed with this disorder had twice the risk of depression-and women five times the risk-compared with those without sleep apnoea. Writing in the April issue of 'Sleep' lead author

Anne G. Wheaton and her colleagues speculate that in addition to interrupting sleep, the oxygen deprivation induced by
sleep apnoea could harm cells and disrupt normal brain functioning.

Treating this disorder shows promise for reducing symptoms of depression, a recent study at the Cleveland Clinic suggests. In the experiment, patients went to bed wearing a mask hooked up to a machine that increases air pressure in their throat.The increased pressure prevents the airway from collapsing, which is what causes breathing to cease in most cases of this disorder. Using this machine, psychiatrist Charles Bae and his colleagues treated 779 patients who had been diagnosed with sleep apnoea. After an average of 90 days of sleeping with the machine, all the patients scored
lower on a common depression survey than before the treatment-regardless of whether they had a prior diagnosis of
depression or were taking an antidepressant. The data were presented in June at the SLEEP 2012 conference in Boston.

An August study in 'Medical Hypotheses' reported that about 25 to 50 percent of children and adolescents with attention-deficit hyperactivitydisorder experience sleep problems. A few months earlier in the
journal 'Paediatrics', researchers found that of the 11,000 children in the study, those with disordered breathing in sleep (as reported by their parents) had 40 percent more behavioural difficulties at four years old and 60 percent more at age seven. Sleep disturbances affect moods, too-and not simply by producing crankiness. Adolescents who reported daytime
drowsiness were also more likely to experience sadness, according to a March study in the

'Journal of Mental Health Policy and Economics.'

Steven Y. Park, assistant professor of otolaryngology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, has long been advocating that sleep disorders are an underlying cause of many psychiatric disorders. "The way I see it," Park says, "you can't consider a psychiatric disorder without thinking about a sleep-breathing problem.""

 I have found that vacuuming the bed regularly with a vacuum cleaner designed to remove dead skin and dust mites improves the breathing, and thus the sleep, not only in asthmatics, but everyone. Likewise, using Vicks vaporub (or similar) on neck, chest, and back before sleep also improves sleep quality.

So now you know why torturers use sleep deprivation to break their victims, the torturers still do not cure their victims afterwards, even though we have the technology. I take this opportunity to rebuke those who council the torturers for the traumas they suffer from their evil act.


In addition to this simple invention, several people have found an improvement in sleeping patterns when reading something that they find boring. Scientists are now saying that reading for six minutes before bed improves sleep, I maintain that reading something interesting could keep you awake all night, where as reading something boring will have you sleep in no-time.


Ever Increasing Pelvic Floor Exercises


 As we get older antiduretic hormones lead to less ability to hold fluids for long periods. This in turn leads to us waking up during the night to use the toilet, and once awake it can be difficult to get to sleep. 40% of younger adults are waking to go to the toilet, 58% of the middle aged do so, and the National Sleep Federation says that 65% of older adults have sleep deprivation from going to the toilet frequently.

Insomnia causes more urine production at night because sleep deprivation reduces the usual dip in blood pressure seen at night, and this keeps the kidneys on a day time schedule.

Both men and women should go to their Doctor to see if there are any physical symptoms for this urinary tract problem. If there is none then my solution is ever increasing pelvic floor exercises (Kegels), which your Doctor can tell you how to do when you ask. Women can buy gadgets that ensure the correct muscle is strengthened, if the wrong muscle is strengthened injury can occur. The usual length of time that you are advised to hold the muscle must be significantly increased upon. In my 50s I find that steadily increasing the hold by ten seconds a week, and holding ten times in a row three times a day you can then hold urine all night without waking when you get to 200 second holds. This might seem a lot of exercise to do a day, but sleeping through makes it more than worthwhile. Literature on the subject says that when you start pelvic floor exercises you should keep up with them. As you steadily increase the length of the hold you will find that you wake up to go to the toilet later and later, and that the number of times you go to the toilet in a night decreases, until finally you sleep through.

 I find that older people who sleep through are happier during the day, so this is a way of making the world a better place, which is my goal in life.





Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a group of behavioural symptoms that include inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness in children. Research over the years has suggested that it is poor sleep in the children that is the cause. Professor Sandra Kooij, of VU Medical Centre in Amsterdam, said: ‘If you review the evidence, it looks more and more like ADHD and sleeplessness are two sides of the same physiological and mental coin.’

This gave me the idea of using my insomnia cure on ADHD as well, all the children it was tested on were soon given a clean bill of health. To get the sleep you get at the coast when the wind blows in from the sea just heat salt water in an oil burner overnight. In just five nights sleep problems are cured, and this takes with it all symptoms of mental illness. Sound too dangerous? Then heat the salt water during the day to simulate a walk by the sea side.



Restless Legs Syndrome Cure


Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a disorder that causes a strong urge to move one's legs. There is often an unpleasant feeling in the legs that improves somewhat with moving them. Occasionally the arms may also be affected. The feelings generally happen when at rest and therefore can make it hard to sleep. Due to the disturbance in sleep, people with RLS may have daytime sleepiness, low energy, irritability, and a depressed mood. Additionally, many have limb twitching during sleep. Restless leg syndrome may resolve if the underlying problem is addressed. Otherwise treatment includes lifestyle changes and medication.

I have suffered from RLS twice in my life, and both times I cured it quickly with a simple exercise using the  Bullworker exercise machine. There are many exercises you can do with a Bullworker but the one that treats RLS is the one where a foot is placed in both straps on both sides, and then the legs are forced apart against the pressure of the straps that are attached to springs. The strengthening of the leg muscles will alleviate the RLS symptoms in just a few weeks with regular use, just follow the exercise sheet instructions to increase strength in the offending muscles.
