Holistic Sleep: Beating Insomnia With Commonsense, Medical, and New Age Techniques
We are an underslept society. At least 36 percent of Americans suffer from some kind of sleep disorder. Lack of sleep takes its toll. Yet when people seek help, they are usually offered a sleeping pill or an antidepressant rather than an informed assessment of their problem.
Dr. Buda's holistic approach starts by helping the sufferer determine whether medical or psychological issues might be the cause. If not, then in many cases simple commonsense techniques can be attempted, such as changing one's diet or exercise habits -- maybe even one's sexual habits. Dr. Buda gives the lowdown on sleep-promoting herbs, vitamins, and medications, including melatonin. The focus is on eliminating counterproductive bedtime habits and acquiring appropriate ones, including establishing a proper sleep ritual.
