Sometimes people are unable to sleep at night because of aches and pains in the body. Celebrity nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar says the best home remedy for it is applying ghee on the soles of the feet.
Ghee is known to have a lot of health benefits. When it comes to sleep, Diwekar says the application of ghee allows for “the vata to settle and reduces gas and bloating”.
The nutritionist added, “This, in turn, reduces acidity and improves sleep. You do know that sleep and excretion, all of digestion, in fact, are linked. Poor digestion and assimilation are also linked with low vitamin D and B12 levels as well. Improved sleep will also lead to improved fat loss, moods and skin tone.”
