    I’m a Homeopathic doctor and have seen very good results with Homeopathy in getting rid of insomnia. Insomnia is inability to get proper sleep due to various causes.

      I am also a homeopath and have never heard of Sleep CM, C35, C55. It sounds like a combination remedy and those are odd potencies to be giving out. Can you enlighten us about Sleep remedy?
