There’s no better start to the day than a fresh, hot cup of coffee to jolt you awake. Surprisingly enough, if you’re having trouble sleeping, coffee can come in handy, too. We’re talking about Coffea cruda, a homeopathic medicine made from the coffee bean.
Homeopathy is based on the premise that “like cures like.” Under this principle, a person experiencing certain symptoms can be treated by small doses of a substance capable of producing similar symptoms in a healthy person. In other words, too much coffee can make you jittery, but a microdose of the coffee bean can help relieve nervousness. If you’ve ever had trouble turning your brain off at night, read on to learn more about this healthy sleep aid.
From Ancient Discovery to Modern Necessity
The exact origin of coffee is unknown. According to popular legend, an Ethiopian goat herder discovered its energizing effect on his animals who did not want to sleep after eating berries from a particular tree. Together with local monks, he developed drink from those berries, which kept them awake through long hours of prayer, thanks to what we now know is caffeine. Knowledge of this discovery soon spread to Europe and the rest of the world.
Today, Ethiopia and other parts of Africa remain famous for growing coffee, but the plants are now cultivated in the Arabian Peninsula, Latin America, Southeast Asia, and other tropical regions as well. Ever since that first sip in the 11th century, coffee has become a beloved beverage, and more than 2 billion cups are enjoyed every day around the globe.
Overcoming an Overactive Mind
Coffee cruda, made from unroasted green coffee beans, is a popular medicine for mental hyperactivity. Use 5 pellets of Coffea cruda 30C at bedtime and repeat every hour if needed to relieve sleeplessness with worries and overactive thoughts.* It’s also helpful for headaches with sleeplessness and sensitivity to noise, light, and contact.* Depending on the severity of the headache, 5 pellets can be taken two to four times throughout the day or night. Additionally, the 30C dilution can ease tooth pain triggered by hot drinks.* Take 5 pellets every hour until pain improves.
