Help for insomnia!
By Jessica Teel
Healthy sleep is a cornerstone of good health that is often overlooked. Alternative medicine expert Dr. Weil and his colleague Dr. Naiman, a sleep expert at the University of Arizona, shed light on how sleep affects health. The CD begins with Dr. Weil talking about sleep in innovative and informative ways. His voice keeps the listener engaged, as he breaks down the different stages of sleep, as well as talking about the importance of mindful awakening. He discusses why sleep drugs are detrimental to healthy sleep, but offers an alternative for people struggling with sleep disorders. Dr. Naiman then takes over to provide practical tips for better sleep, along with breathing and relaxation exercises that can help listeners achieve a good nights rest. His voice is relaxing and confident, and is well suited for the guided meditation/breath work included on the CD. The CD is also well organized with the sleep exercises at the very end of the CD. This allows you to play the guided exercises at bed time, and if you fall asleep the CD will just end and you won’t have to get up and turn it off. Multiple track titles allow listeners to easily navigate the information in CD format. The book touches not only insomnia – or trouble falling asleep, but also the common problem of achieving restful sleep. This would apply to people who don’t have trouble falling asleep, but rather don’t wake up feeling rested. If this is the type of sleep disorder you suffer from you might be left wanting more information. The exercises and most of the research presented in Healthy Sleep address more typical “insomnia”. But if falling asleep is your main problem this CD is a must have. It provides background research, practical tips, and guided exercises to help you achieve maximum health through proper sleep.

This helped me sleep!
By Jennifer Kline
My boss gave me this book, because she knows I have insomnia. I wake up almost every night around three or four and can’t go back to sleep. I tried the exercises on the CD, and they really helped calm my racing mind. The breath work they teach is simple and effective! I also enjoyed hearing about all the small ways that you can help improve your sleep environment. The research presented by both authors was unique and informative. Both authors have great voices suited for an audio production, and the guided relaxation portions are done well. If you have insomnia, try this CD – it really works!

An immediate difference!
By J. Brewer
I listened to this CD while “fall cleaning” our bedroom so I put into place the suggestions that were made. I then listened to the “going to sleep track”. What a difference! Part of the benefit was knowing that waking in the middle of the night can be very normal. Just relax! These CDs are filled with concrete, down-to-earth actions for you to take.
