Before we chat about a little bottle of magic elixir called DREAM from NAVAN International, let’s have a look back at my history of insomnia.
- I inherited the mother’s lousy sleep habits.
- She encouraged me to stay up with her until all hours when she didn’t sleep, creating a life long habit.
- Being afraid of the dark, I had trouble falling asleep to begin with, what with the boogeyman and all.
- I rarely slept more than an hour or two at a time without waking.
- Many nights I got 2-3 hours of sleep total.
- I was like this from my early years until six months ago.
(Yup, my lousy sleep patterns go back to when I was a kid, and I blame the mother. Haha, always blame the mother right?)
My Insomnia History
The mother used to stay up late, like until three or four in the morning late. The father would take a shower at 11 o’clock and by 11:30, he was in bed and asleep. I’ve always envied how that man could just put his head down and go to sleep. I have friends who do that too. It’s so…perplexing.
The mother liked to have company at night, so I was often encouraged to stay up with her. Typically it was Friday and Saturday nights. We would stay up and watch old TV shows like the original Avengers, Peter Gunn, and The Saint.
Side note, I really love the original Avengers and Emma Peelwas my favorite. Who didn’t want to look like, nay, BE Diana Rigby’s Mrs Peel? But I digress.
We would stay up eating snacks and watching TV until I went to bed around 3:00 or 3:30 am. I’d get a few hours of wrestles sleep then get up anytime between 8:00 and 10:00, depending on what we had going on that day.
Deep, Dark Fears
I am also afraid of the dark. It’s totally not rational. I don’t know why, but I am. Where we lived there were no street lights. We were out in the middle of nowhere and it was dark, dark, dark. I would lay in bed, unable to go to sleep because it was so dark. I know that doesn’t make any sense for the rational person, but I never claimed to be rational!
My preteen and teenage years were spent being awake all night, or a large part of the night, and working off of three sometimes four hours of sleep if I was lucky. As an adult, I moved out of my parents house and took a job that had an evening shift. I didn’t get home from work until 10 o’clock at night, which means I was up for several hours before I went to bed. Again, my poor little body didn’t know what was day and what was night.
Relief from Insomnia At Last
Fast forward to present day. I’m in my 50s (early 50s,) and I’m exhausted. A lifetime of no sleep will do that to a person. This was my life, always tired, always drained. I hit a point where I was just done. Done and numb and exhausted. Enter my friend Rona.
She suggested I try this sleep product she had come upon. It worked really well for her. She too has trouble sleeping PLUS she suffers a lot of physical pain that would keep her awake. DREAM helps her sleep! What did I have to lose? I mean, if it worked for Rona…
What IS DREAM?
Dream is a magical elixir I get from a company called NAVAN International. NAVAN develops products that are built around a simple, effective system that helps remove the bad and provide you with the good. NAVAN believes that in order to receive all the GOOD life has to offer, you need a really strong foundation of health.
Their focus has an integrated approach – Cleanse, Restore and Protect. NAVAN products come with a Certificate of Analysis (COA) displayed publicly on the website. Transparency is key to knowing exactly what you are ingesting and this company supports that. I really like that.
What Is IN DREAM?
Formulated with the relaxing power of CBD, melatonin and a blend of herbal extracts, DREAM is designed to help you get a great night of sleep!NAVAN INTERNATIONAL WEBSITE
DREAM is a blend of CBD oil derived from hemp plus melatonin, peppermint, valerian, and other wonderful herbs and oils that promotes relaxation, well-being, and sounder sleep.
I have tried most of these things individually in other sleep remedies. Nothing I tried worked for me. DREAM? Not only does it help me sleep, I wake refreshed with no hang-over effects from taking it.
My Personal Experience Using DREAM
It took a few days, and I had to fiddle faddle with the dose, but now I sleep most nights! I’m not exactly sure how it works, but I put a dropper of the tincture under my tongue and within half an hour to an hour, I fall asleep. Seriously. Sleep! Best of all? I stay asleep. WHAT?? When I do wake, I go back to sleep. Can you hear the hallelujah chorus in the background?
Side note: I drink a LOT of water a day. Getting up once or twice a night isn’t unusual, if you get my drift.
I have honestly never slept so well in my life. I am a true believer in DREAM. I’ve even recommended it to a few friends who also suffer from insomnia. Oh yeah, and it tastes really good too. Minty!
