Synopsis:

"A guide to life-saving sleep, addressing the modern epidemic many of us unknowingly suffer from, and showing how to confront this new big health risk in order to live longer, healthier lives. We spend up to one-third of our lives sleeping or we should. Instead, we're the "Walking Weary." Millions stay up late, get up early, wake to tend children, wake with hot flashes, wake to worry. Sleep problems afflict nearly half of employed adults. Late-night Internet surfing, lack of exercise, and weekend sleep binging can hamper children's physical and mental growth. Elderly loved ones may suffer sleep disruption by too much napping and not enough activity. Is poor sleep making you sick? Many of us stop breathing hundreds of times a night, in a condition called sleep apnea, which can contribute to heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, and depression. If you have these "daytime problems," you may have an undiagnosed "nighttime problem." "Sleep to Save Your Life" comes to the rescue. Sleep expert Gerard T. Lombardo, M.D., explains how your genes, environment, job, habits, and physiology may be hampering your sleep and what you can do at home and in treatment to get the restorative sleep you need to feel better, perform better, look better, live healthier, and live longer.

It's filled with self-assessments, strategies, charts, and techniques Dr. Lombardo has used successfully with thousands of patients. If you're one of the "Walking Weary" - you wake up tired - this book can help identify an undiagnosed sleep problem.

A guide to life-saving sleep--addressing the modern epidemic many of us unknowingly suffer from, and showing how to confront this new big health risk in order to live longer, healthier lives. Humans spend 1/3 of their lives sleeping. With eating and exercise, sleep completes the crucial triad for health. Yet today a sleep crisis is undermining our productivity, relationships, and short-term and long-term health. Current research identifies poor sleep (specifically sleep apnea) as a significant cofactor in a growing number of diseases (e.g., asthma, hypertension, heart disease, depression, diabetes). Poor sleep makes any illness worse. It runs in families. It is affected by habits, allergies, anatomy, diet/exercise, and smoking. It is the modern malady of our stress-laden, 24/7 lives. Sleep to Save Your Life reveals these new understandings and what to do about them, based on Dr. Lombardo s experience advising transit unions, Wall Streeters, athletes, and police in the city that never sleeps. Easy-to-follow physiology is combined with self-assessments, dietary and behavioral programs, and advice on getting the best treatment. We learn why you shouldn t hit the snooze button. . .how getting extra sleep doesn t counteract sleep deprivation. . .which activities worsen sleep problems. . .when and what to eat for better sleep. . .whether chamomile tea, warm milk, and other remedies really work. . .and more. This is a total guide covering at-home help alongside discussion of cutting-edge medical treatment. Bookseller Inventory # NLF9780060742539
