Sound Sleep, Sound Mind: 7 Keys to Sleeping Through the Night by Barry Krakow

Do you lie awake each night tossing and turning, trying to fall asleep or stay asleep? Are you tired of the quick-fix, over-the-counter, or prescription drug remedies that promise more than they deliver? If you're one of the millions who struggle with sleepless nights, you need to know that most people with insomnia or other sleep difficulties never receive the treatment that could finally put their problems to rest.

Now, one of the nation's pioneering sleep specialists, Dr. Barry Krakow, shares his unique seven-step program that targets the mental, emotional, and physical causes of your sleep problems. Using the combined natural and high-tech mind-body approach designed, personally tested, and used by Dr. Krakow himself, you will learn how to get the quality sleep you need and the rest you deserve. Based on scientific research and clinical expertise, Dr. Krakow's Sleep Dynamic Therapy program will forever transform the way you think and feel about insomnia or poor sleep.

At its core, Sleep Dynamic Therapy explains how the mind and body conspire to wreak havoc on the quality of your sleep. Contrary to conventional theories about stress and light sleep, most people who suffer from insomnia or poor sleep must address both psychological and physical factors to solve their sleep problems. These revolutionary ideas set "Sound Sleep, Sound Mind "apart from all other books.

Some of the immediate and long-term benefits you'll gain include an ability to fall asleep more quickly, fewer awakenings at night, greater ease returning to sleep if awakened, more solid hours of sleep each night, and less daytime sleepiness and fatigue. You'll also reap additional rewards, including enhanced mental and physical health, greater powers of concentration, and a more stable mood, all of which arise from increasing the quality of your sleep. No other book provides you with as much insight and instruction on how to take control of your sleep problems, conquer your insomnia, and gain the quality sleep you might have once thought unimaginable.
