Because there is no “one size fits all” remedy for insomnia, many people try treatment after treatment before finding one that helps them. In “Insomnia & Other Sleep Disorders” Dr. Ruth Lever Kidson aims to make the process of finding the ‘right’ treatment much easier.
She looks first at the causes of insomnia, since an understanding of the cause is an important step in finding the cure. She explains how to recognise other causes of disturbed sleep, such as sleep apnea, which can be mistaken for insomnia but need different forms of treatment. She then describes a wide range of treatments and guides you through them to enable you to find out which is likely to be best for you.
Many suggestions are offered on self-treatment, together with advice about when you should consult a physician or a complementary therapist and when it’s safe to self-treat. As well as orthodox treatments, the book covers a wide range of complementary therapies and remedies - all with a proven track record in treating insomnia successfully.
The author of “Insomnia & Other Sleep Disorders” is a qualified doctor, medical hypnotherapist, psychotherapist, writer and broadcaster, with a wide knowledge of complementary therapies. She has created a downloadable hypnosis mp3 especially for readers of this book and a link to it is included in the section on hypnosis.
