Knowledge about sleep apnea has increased dramatically. Sleep apnea is now known to be associated with a growing list of medical conditions. Thus, it is no longer the exclusive domain of a single specialty. Healthcare providers in different fields are likely to encounter sleep apnea in some form or another. This book contains relevant and practical information about sleep apnea, presented in a compact, easy-to-read question and answer format for the busy clinician.
Hypnosis in the Management of Sleep Disorders combines history and medical science to show that the use of hypnosis and hypnotic techniques is effective in the treatment of sleep disorders -- and that this is increasingly validated through modern tools (computers, fMRI images). Dr. Kohler and Kurz show readers that hypnosis and hypnotic techniques are not to be feared or avoided, but that their use can contribute to effective, non-intrusive, and cost-effective approaches to the treatment of sleep problems. This volume is a much needed reference for therapists and their patients alike on how hypnosis can be helpful in the treatment of certain sleep disorders.
Designed primarily as a text this volume is an up-to-date and integrated overview of physiological sleep mechanisms, brain function, psychological ramifications of sleep, dimensions of dreaming, and clinical disorders associated with sleep. It is accessibly written with specially boxed material that enhances the text. Authored by a researcher/clinician/professor with more than 25 years of experience in sleep studies, Understanding Sleep and Dreaming provides a solid basis for those who are not expert in this area. It offers a good foundation for those who will continue sleep studies, while at the same time offering enough information for those who will apply this knowledge in other ways such as clinicians in their individual practices or researchers for whom sleep may be part of a specific study. It is an excellent text for courses on sleep at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
We are now sleeping far less than ever before and carrying more weight than at any other time in human history. Is there a connection? In this groundbreaking book, Australian sleep expert Dr Carmel Harrington demonstrates the critical link between sleeplessness and obesity. Drawing from the latest sleep and nutrition research, Dr Harrington reveals the science behind what happens to our bodies when we don't get enough sleep, and how this critically affects our appetite-controlling hormones, our metabolism and how we think and feel. She explains why proper sleep is the missing link in the ongoing and often agonising attempts to lose weight. Dr Harrington shows how to develop habits that deliver high-quality, restorative sleep. She provides a plan for healthy eating and a guide to making sure our improved eating and sleeping habits lead to lasting weight loss. Accessible and authoritative, The Sleep Diet is both a scientifically proven approach and a practical guide to losing weight and improving overall health and wellbeing.
