what is the best way to cure insomnia without taking sleeping pills?

Melatonin: Ck w/your doc first and don't take w/other sleeping meds or if pregnant. Melatonin (a hormone) can be helpful for sleep. Take one hour prior to going to bed and a very small dose--many folks take 1 or 2 mg. Peace and good health. I've not seen any "hang over" side effects. Peace and good health.
