Low Tech Insomnia Cure

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.
