千年古方治失眠

我以為只有工作壓力大才會失眠,結果我二哥退休後也一樣失眠,問他為甚麼睡不着,他說擔心家裏的事,東想西想便失眠了。失眠不可怕,可怕的是他去看醫生,醫生居然給他開精神科的藥,過了一段時間,失眠沒有改進,反而開始依賴藥物,吃到後來,人愈來愈沮喪,一天到晚想自殺,下肢也變得無力,年紀輕輕要坐輪椅,後來他不再吃西藥,換成中藥調理,慢慢的,人好像從一場夢中醒過來,能重新走路,也重新走進生活,這個過程有幾年!
大病一場以後,他突然想通:睡不着就由它睡不着好了,躺在床上閉目養神,一樣是養生,沒有了自己暗示的「睡不着壓力」,他反而容易睡着了。
失眠有很多不同的原因,我如果多喝了兩杯,半夜一定醒來,喝多了是醉不是眠,醉醒以後反而失眠;反之,我老婆睡前喝半杯紅酒,便睡得很安穩。像我二哥的情況屬於焦慮和壓力造成的神經衰弱;沒有上班,沒有經濟問題也一樣會有焦慮和壓力。另一種,是睡眠不深,愈睡愈累,這種情況,通常是在應該睡覺的時候,卻在電視機前打瞌睡、或者一到晚上便開始東摸摸西摸摸,令到已經很累的腦袋無法休息,太累了,反而睡不好。人到深夜開始餓,其實這時胃中還有晚餐沒有消化,而神經已經因為太累失調;消夜以後會睡得比較好,但飽着肚子睡,一定睡不安穩。以上因為工作造成的壓力、自己嚇自己形成的焦慮、生活方式造成的神經紊亂,會引起憂鬱、煩躁、總是想哭、愛發呆、失眠、多夢、愈睡愈累……不過無需擔心,有一條《金匱要略》上的千年古方「甘麥大棗湯」,簡單又有效,有以上狀況者都適用。

甘麥大棗湯:
甘草一錢;小麥三錢;紅棗(去核) 15粒。
三碗半水,大火煲滾轉小火,煲成大半碗。
睡前一到兩小時喝。

有的人脾不好,吃甜以後胃脹,這湯就少喝一點。這服千年延壽「甘麥大棗湯」可以常年喝,還有個更簡單的喝法,把三樣東西泡滾水,焗在暖水杯中一個白天,到了晚上便可以喝了。血脂高、高血壓、肝病也會引起失眠,但不適合這個食療。

「甘麥大棗湯」也適合因為更年期引起的心煩、睡不好,藥量換成:
甘草 12克;;小麥 18克;紅棗(去核) 9粒。
三碗半水,大火煲滾轉小火,煲成大半碗。
手心熱、腳心熱、舌頭髮紅,用生甘草。

小麥在街市買,如果夜間有盜汗,改用浮小麥,就是浮在水上、乾癟的小麥。
