Coffee as an insomnia cure?

Insomnia is difficult to cure because there is no single insomnia cause. To further complicate matters, we are all different - so following conventional wisdom when looking for an insomnia cure may not work for you.

A case in point - I have members of my insomnia help forums who tell me that coffee helps them to sleep.

If that doesn't fly in the face of conventional wisdom, I don't know what does.

Here's something that may back that claim up, too. According to some homeopaths, coffea cruda (a diluted substance containing small amounts of unroasted coffee beans) is a good insomnia treatment.

Apparently, it can also relieve headaches, tinnitus and toothaches.

It's also supposed to help relieve labor pains, but I'll reserve judgement on that one - not my area of expertise!

    As I am kept awake by sleeping meds, so are some folk calmed unto sleepiness by caffeine–sometimes it’s called an “idiosyncratic reaction”. Also, folks with ADD/ADHD are calmed by stimulants.

    Martin, I know that in the UK, people often have a late coffee or tea just before bedtime, especially at the end of a dinner party. Unlike the US, where coffee and tea are served throughout the meal, in Europe and Asia (at least the Philippines), restaurants almost refuse to serve coffee or tea before the main part of the meal is ended. When I was in Scotland, I had such a bad headache AND a long drive ahead of me to our next B&B, that I badly needed lots of tea and couldn’t get any until after the main dish. I was practically weeping from pain and tiredness. When we got to this B&B, we were offered tea to settle us! I think that was the place where I tried to figure out how to take a shower of sorts with two spigots–one of hot, and one of cold, in a tub with no showerhead. The next morning we were off to the port for the Islay ferry, and I was offered black pudding for the first time. I figured out what it was before tasting, but tasted anyways for politeness and to see if it was as bad as I’d thought. Not going out of my way for it, but it was edible.

    I’m afraid I’m not one for homeopathic treatments, but I’ve never tried caffeine for toothache, and my tinnitus is sporadic and fleeting, thus not conducive to trying cures.
