  • Vicky810, during sleep we let our guard down and fear and anxiety can surface and become magnified - and dizziness is a very common side effect of anxiety. During the night our body begins to pump out more of a hormone called cortisol which because we no longer burn it off through fight or flight hangs around in our mind and body causing early morning anxiety and depression in susceptable people such as yourself. There is something in green tea called thianine which counteracts the cortisol and I seggest you buy a box of green tea bags and when you wake up in the middle of the night feeling anxious just drink a cup of green tea despite the fact many people find it a bit bitter and you could well find it brings you relief.

  • Thank u so very much! I will try exactly that 😊
