Could some one help me, my husband is an insomniac and has had it for years, is there any herbal remedy I can give him as he is against drugs.
Thank you in advance,

Kalm; 'Just presenting this tid-bit for what it is worth, I have just gotten over viral condtion named "constant fatigue syndrome" (CFS). It causes insomnia as well as causing one to be weak and drowsey all the time. I had this for about 2 years and it got progressively worse , until I told an herbal specialist about it. He prescribed a herbal remedy, which knocked it out in about 3 days! Now, I feel much better, and am able to sleep much better than before. If your husband has CFS, it will disguise itself as being something else, especially if he tired all the time. That it is caused by a virus was news to me.

I don't know if he would consider it a drug, but melatonin is supposed to help. They sell it in the vitamin section of most drugstores. One word of caution, though, if he suffers from depression at all, I would not advise not taking melatonin.
