Like many of you hard-working Montanans, I'm lucky if I'm able to get six hours of sleep at night.

That's lifestyle, not insomnia. It's probably closer to five on average, and so laying in bed wide awake is rarely a problem. But it can be for many people and it's just so darn frustrating. Whatever drives insomnia, there are plenty of over-the-counter and therapeutic remedies. But if nothing has worked, maybe you'd like to get really off the wall with some of these methods gathered by our friends at Spread the Word PR. They compiled a list of the strangest insomnia cures ever.

Spoiler alert: While some might actually cure your insomnia, they may make you puke during the process. But here we go. We did NOT make these up:

1. Rubbing dog's earwax on your teeth.

2. Eating sea slug entrails before bed.

3. Drinking a potion containing the bile of a castrated boar.

4. Rubbing dormouse or field mouse fat on the soles of your feet.

5. Lathering your hair in yellow soap.

6. Drinking a brew of lettuce opium and/or eating fried lettuce before bed.

7. Pointing your head northward.

8. Curling and uncurling your toes.

9. Drinking cinnamon and banana tea.

10. Watching a video of a crossword puzzle tournament.

We're not actually sure if #10 made the list or if the guys were just having fun. But ain't there some gems in here? If you have any that are crazier and have actually worked, we'd love to hear about them. Or if you know a reliable distributor of mouse fat and boar bile....

Sleep well, my friends.
