How many of you have trouble sleeping? Ever since I hit ‘midlife’ getting to sleep and staying asleep has not been easy. So when the fine folks at Healthy Directions asked me to try out Dr. Xu’s Restful Sleep Natural Sleep Aid Supplement I was
In the past, I have tried doctor prescribed sleeping pills but they acted like a diuretic. You can’t get any sleep with THAT side effect!
I like the fact that this product is all natural and made in the U.S.A.
Here is a small ‘snapshot’ about the product. Well, actually it’s a screenshot. ;-)
Did you see the part about the spleen? According to Traditional Chinese Medicine belief, if your spleens chi (energy) is off, you are not going to get a good night’s sleep.
I wanted to take this for a full week so I could really see how effective it was. I have a lot on my mind right now. We just got back from house hunting in Vegas and are still waiting for an offer on our home here in New Mexico. I DEFINITELY have a restless mind!
Not only is my restless mind a problem when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep, so is this…
85lb Miss Oreo at my feet + 185lb husband at my side + Queen size bed = No room for me! :-(
As directed, I took two pills 30 minutes before bedtime with 4 oz of water. I took the pills at 10 pm each night.
Here are the results:
Night 1 : Still awake at 1 am when Miss Oreo said she had to go outside and do her business. Finally fell asleep and woke up at 6:15 am.
Night 2 : Started feeling sleepy at 10: 30 pm. Yay! Miss Oreo woke me up at 1 am. I easily fell back to sleep. Woke up at 7 am.
Night 3 : Didn’t fall asleep until close to 1 am. Woke up at 6:15 am.
Night 4 : Took them at 9:30 pm because I was tired. Fell asleep quickly. Woke up at 2 am, but fell back to sleep easily. Woke up at 7 am.
Night 5 : Once again it started working within 30 minutes. That darn Miss Oreo woke me up at 1 am and 2 am but I easily fell back to sleep until 7 am.
Night 6 : Once again, started feeling sleepy within 30 minutes. If that darn dog wouldn’t keep waking me up in the middle of the night I would have stayed asleep! I slept until 7:20 am.
Night 7 : Ugh…this last night was another rough one. I was still awake at midnight, the dog got me up at 2 am (but I fell back to sleep easily) and I woke up at 6am.
After seeing these results I would have to say…
1. Miss Oreo needs to wake my husband up to go outside and do her business in the middle of the night! Why me, Miss Oreo…WHY ME????
2. For the most part, 4 nights out of 7, Restful Sleep worked for me. Yay!!!!
