Over 200 natural sleep remedies and strategies are described in this book, from Chinese, Ayurvedic, Western and North American Indian herbs, to foods, nutrients, light therapy, bedding and many others. This comprehensive resource also describes sleep patterns, sleep deprivation, and the latest research on how much sleep we really need, and how to calculate our personal sleep needs. Here the emerging science of sleep and dreaming is unveiled in clear terms. We discover our biological clocks: how they are set and reset, and how they affect our hormones, neurotransmitters and sleep cycles. The latest dream research is also explored, revealing the mysterious realm of REM dreaming and lucid dreaming. Learning to remember, steer and take control over our dreams and sleep cycles is also discussed with a refreshing science-based understanding of the dreamscape and nightmares. In Natural Sleep we also find a complete scientific resource for hundreds of ancient and modern natural cures for sleeplessness — helping us achieve both good quality sleep and productive, positive dreams.

About the Author
"People look to natural solutions because many of those presented by modern medicine are not sustainable due to side effects and/or damage to the environment. My objective is to separate hype from reality. To accomplish this, I present the clinical evidence and research on natural healing methods together with their historical use and modern alternatives. I seek to empower the reader with the facts, to enable wise health decisions."
