Many will ask: How I can get better sleep? How is my brain health improved (or hurt) by poor sleep? Is my depression and anxiety being caused by poor sleep? Do sleep problems cause weight gain?
Other common sleep and brain health questions crying out for answers include: Will I go crazy if I can't sleep? What is sleep apnea and how do I know if I have it? Is medication an insomnia solution? What health problems relate to sleep disorders? Can better sleep improve my memory?
Sleep Better for Brain Health is designed to provide answers to these questions and help you improve memory and overall brain health. The book is a practical guide for people with insomnia and avoids technical and academic jargon.
Sleep Better for Brain Health provides a plan for an insomnia cure. As you begin to sleep better you improve your overall brain health. The book is designed to provide the reader with an insomnia solution rather than psychobabble and academic jargon.
Six basic principles are presented, which based upon research, have been shown to help most people with insomnia sleep better. For those needing professional help, the reader will be able to communicate their concerns more effectively to their healthcare provider.
A memory problem from poor sleep is often a result of sleep disorders and insomnia. Brain health can be seriously affected if sleep deprivation becomes persistent. We now know that anxiety, depression and other emotional disorders so common today can be caused by or made worse by sleep disorders.
Sleep Better for Brain Health is divided into sections to help the reader cure insomnia based upon their personal issues. A Quick Start Guide is presented in the beginning of the book to get the insomnia suffer started off right.
The relationship between good brain health and good memory and sleep is reviewed in a way that helps the reader understand these relationships better. In the section on physical health and sleep, obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes and even Parkinson's disease is discussed.
The effects of poor sleep on psychological health are also reviewed. Suggestions for overcoming worry and anxiety are given. The Worry System is presented as a cure for trouble getting to sleep.
Good sleep also looks at ways sleep problems can contribute to sadness and depression and provides suggestions for help in these important areas. The role of anger and irritability are also reviewed and methods for positive change are made.
What is sleep restriction and how can that be an insomnia cure? Sleep restriction is presented as an effective approach for many in overcoming the ravages of ongoing sleep problems. Research has shown it to be one of the most effective approaches to better sleep.
The book concludes with instructions on how to Sleep Better Now. References and resources are presented so that the reader is able to further delve into certain areas of interest. You can sleep better and improve your brain health, even if only a little.
This book was very clear on the different ways that sleep can be affected, which many other books fail to do. He lists examples of the different things that interfere with sleep, and even some things that may not be as noticable.
He then goes through the side effects, as well as the risks involved with lack of sleep, most noteably the effect on your memory.
He also reviews what good sleep is.
He bolds key points, as well as points the readers to other recourse sites to learn more.
Then there are the six principles of good sleep, which so far, are pretty helpful.
Overall, this book packs a lot of good information and is even good for light reading if you just want to understand sleeping as a whole better. The book is is divided well, so if you are interested in something specific, then you can just check the table of contents and jump to that area.
I think both my wife and I will benifit from this book.
I have used and tried all the fixes to include the mouth piece (changed my bite and hurt like hell), strips (made my nose break out), CPAP (works but very uncomfortable). Not once have the "Sleep Doctors" sugested the jaw exercises mentioned by Dr Wolf. I did the excercises for two weeks and have been sleeping like a baby without the CPAP. NEED I SAY MORE.
If you have a sleeping problem, this is a good place to start or continue your education.
