HAVING TROUBLE WITH INSOMNIA? TRY CHERRIES
Eat a handful of cherries (if you can find them) before bedtime (or drink tart cherry juice). Scientists have discovered cherries are jam-packed with melatonin, the same hormone created by your body to regulate sleep patterns. Then take or steep yourself in a hot bath to relax your muscles and your mind. In bed, rest your head on a scented pillow—the fragrance induces sleepiness. And cherries can help prevent gout attacks, say experts Mark Moyad, and Jacob Teitelbaum.
