There are lots of assumptions out there about what causes chronic fatigue – that, I-can-barely-get-out-of-bed-to-brush-my-teeth-feeling – which haunts millions of people around the world today. Some say it is caused by “stealth infections” like a virus that somehow manages to finagle its way into our bodies like a lethal B-2 bomber. Others suggest it’s the constant onslaught of stress and lack of sleep most of us in the “civilized” world are so accustomed to.
Chronic fatigue has an easy cure though – aside from eating better and getting enough sleep – honey and Apple Cider Vinegar offer an amazing antidote to the modern lifestyle we’ve adopted that keeps us run down and constantly exhausted.
Less than 7 Hours of Sleep Nightly Causes a Huge Increase in Risk of Death
Not to belabor the point, but A 17-year analysis of 10,000 government workers by a professor of cardiovascular medicine at the University of Warwick’s medical school Francesco Cappuccio showed that those who cut their sleep from seven hours a night to five or less faced a 1.7-fold increased risk of death from all causes and more than double the risk of cardiovascular death. But there is a better way!
Honey is a sedative to the body. Twenty minutes after we’ve eaten it, our body has already absorbed it into the blood stream because it has been pre-digested in the stomachs of bees. Those natural sugars help to create consistent insulin levels which then produce serotonin, a hormone that helps us sleep better.
Honey also has high levels of omega-3 fatty acids that help reduce tiredness and fatigue.
(Remember to thank those little fellas the next time you see one.)
When you add ACV to the amazing honey, it triggers the release of tryptophan, a substance that is metabolized into serotonin. This hormonal cocktail then prevents us from feeling we can’t get to sleep because we are too tired.
We all know the drill so well – we’re exhausted, and lay down to sleep, but we’re so wired-tired we can’t drift off into dreamland. Honey and ACV solve that problem so that you can sleep faster, sleep longer, and allow your body to heal from its natural, healthy state.
Here’s How to Try this Simple Remedy
Keep a mixture of three teaspoons of apple cider vinegar to a cup of honey next to your bed and sip on it before sleeping, and try to get as many hours of sleep in before midnight as possible. This is a key time according to both Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for the body to repair itself. I mean, no wonder we’re so tired all the time, we expect the body to clean up the mess we leave in it with only a few hours of sleep each night!
The ACV and honey dose will help calm the nervous system and prepare you for sleep, while aiding the body feel regenerated and whole again.
It’s as simple as that!
