    By total coincidence, last night I found the article at home. I have not been able to get a complete night’s sleep for several months. Decided that the prescription sleeping pill, which is OGM “a controlled substance”, was not what I wanted. Tried some herb which didn’t quite help, and then found the Bean Story. Will do it tonight. Good sleeping to all of us.

  2. NEVER TAKE ZOLPIDEM

    Been on Zolpidem 8 years now.
    I wrecked my car on a rainy October night around 12 a.m
    Told my wife is was going for Donuts. I have flashes of my terror about what happened that night. I was going into the right hand curve downtown then swerving last into a construction barricade. I was 30 miles away from Donuts. My car crashed. I remember looking at the right front fender and seeing a flat tire and mangled rim. So I just started to walk home. I live in the country. Saw 4 trucks go by. I just kept walking in the pouring rain in my windbreaker and lounge pants complete with slippers. I lived 9 miles away. Sheriff police found me just as my crostreet was coming up. Gave me a ride home where my wife and daughter were in terror waiting for bad news.
    LOL the the Sheriff’s SUV pulls in and he gets out first. By then they both thought I was dead.

    Point? DO NOT TAKE ZOLPIDEM.

  3. Sea Bands for insomnia

    I googled Sea Bands and there is nothing for insomnia… only for seasickness, radiation, nausea,etc. Would that be used for insomnia as well? If so, nothing is written about it.

  4. Kidney Bean for Sleep

    I have used a kidney bean taped to my wrists for 2 years now. In the morning I peel them off the paper tape (Walgreens WELL brand because it is easy to remove from my wrist) and I reuse the beans night after night. I could use the Seabands but I like the “home-made” experience. On occasion, I awake at the “familiar” 3:00am “hole” in my night, then I look at my wrist and see that I forgot to apply the “bean treatment.”

    The rate of effectiveness is quite high…probably 90 -95 %. If the kidney beans don’t work, then I get up and read a book, knowing that my helicopter brain has to be tamed…again. The way I see the “bean treatment” is that it doesn’t “put me to sleep” (like a supplement or drug) but it “allows” me relax into sleep.

    This is one of the most helpful/delightful treatments I have gleaned from People’s Pharmacy radio, books, online subscription and brochures…right up there with Grapejuice and Certo for arthritis…and the list goes on.
    Thank you Joe and Terry Graedon

    I used Zolpiden for 10yrs and it worked great for me but my physician stopped me and would not give it to me.
    I am now trying Trazodone HCL 50mg tab for for sleep. I have been on this for three days without any help from this med. I called his office and he told me to increase this medicine to 100 mg and try this for a week and to let him know the results.
    Please advise me what you think or know about this medicine please.

    Please tell the above writer that she can buy Sea Bands from Wal Greens or other pharmacies….no need to use the bean taped to her wrist….the Sea Bands come with a diagram to show where to place them…

  7. KIDNEY BEAN PRESSURE

    PLEASE SEND ME A DIAGRAM SO I CAN REALLY UNDERSTAND HOW TO MAKE IT AND I’M NOT SURE WHERE THE ACTUAL PRESSURE POINT ON THE WRIST IS LOCATED. HELP. THANK YOU. I read your articles on my email and I do appreciate all your information.

    You cannot fathom the impact of your simple suggestion about applying kidney bean pressure to the sleep acupressure point in the wrist. I devised a wristlet by cutting a piece from an Ace bandage to go around my wrist twice. I closed the ends, forming a doubled circle, and in between the layers, sewed a toggle button (a one-inch barrel shaped button with a metal eye in its center for sewing). This slips over my hand easily, and once the button is positioned over the acupressure point, it does not stray.

    “This simple device puts me to sleep in a few short minutes and I do not wake more than twice during the night. Sleep is so essential to making fibromyalgia a livable condition.”
