Hello all, thanks for all that input.

I myself try to stay away from chemicals and BigPharma, maybe the following ideas will be useful for someone?

I started this not so funny but surprising behavior a few weeks ago, after recuperating from a bronchitis. Which is peculiar in itself because i am NEVER sick (knock on wood) maybe because i waste lots of time sleeping 9-10 hours a day. My CSA is maybe caused by a side effect of the antibiotics i resolved taking after 2 weeks of lung tearing, since neurological causes of CSA are considered. Speaking of neurologique causes, i did not get the cov jab so it's not involved.

I feel sorry for all of you suffering this ailment when you got to sleep. Or try to. Me i get it only in the morning, when i go back to bed after the mandatory pipi.

Maybe i don't have trouble falling asleep because of the 2 glasses of white wine i have before bedtime. A (maybe not so bad, then?) habit i took while longhaul truck driving, to numb me into a sleepnight in the truck cab's sleeper, in not always ideal conditions. I am planning to stop having that sleep aid for financial reasons, but if i end up needing a pill to get to sleep i will get back to wine, i promiss.

So speaking of natural stuffs:

--when i need an anxiolitic i turn to St-John's wort. Potent enough to come with a warning of not taking it if you are on a chemical antidepressor. My wife's brief stint of Transitional CSA ended when she had that as sleep aid (look here: she also was freshly off antibiotics for her emphysema exacerbation. hmmm...) ;

--having echinacea regularly will lessen the need for antibiotics, have a massive dose (along with B, C, D, Zinc) when the FluBeast shows up;

--white willow extract instead of Aspirin, including the blood thinning effect (acetylsalycilic acid is found in willow bark).

Along with wort's sleeping aid potential, here are a few good choices among "The Good Lord's pharmacy" (as Maria Treben calls it): Valerian, Passionflower, Hops, Linden, Melissa, Chamomille, Skullcap, Lemon balm, Oatstraw, Lavender, Rhodolia, Griffonia, Ashwagandha, Hawthorn, , , ... .

You can find all these in diverse forms: capsules, tinctures, essential oils, loose leaf herbal teas (tisannes)...and as weed, around your house. Go out, pick, steep or macerate...

I am not a medecine doctor, sleep technician, whatever. I just wanted to point to good stuff i know about and/or experienced. Keep in mind lots of those also come with warnings, some have side effects, etc

Sorry for my weird Inglisch, i'm from Qu├ębec.

I would be happy and honored to have bored you all to sleep ;-)
